i had a rather discouraging shopping experience today. i love all the babydoll-style tops with empire waists to wear over leggings and skinny jeans - the empire seam hits at the thinnest part of my body, the flowy material disguises unsightly tummy bulge, and i have thin legs for my size-14 frame, so the skinny bottoms show that off. me + current trends = match made in clothing heaven, right? almost. i also have D-cup boobs. today at anthropologie, not a SINGLE shirt or dress with an empire seam that i tried was cut so that my boobs would fit in the two little (and i emphasize little) places made specifically to accomodate boobs. not even if i took off my bra and the extra bulk that it created. no go. since most of these shirts and dresses are deep-v to balance out the extra cloth in the rest of the shirt, even the stretchy jersey tops that i could squeeze the girls in to gave me an EMBARRASSING amount of porn-star cleavage. i usually just ended up with seams running across me about a third of the way down my boob, instead of around my ribcage, where they're supposed to go. i can't be the only one with this problem! i did find one really cute free people tube dress that i successfully corralled my boobs in to.
