  1. Hi, I would like to buy some blouses but in order for them to fit in the bust area I have to get a larger size but then they are really big in the shoulders and look boxy. Does anyone have any suggestions. There are cute button down tops shown for C body type that I would like to try.

  1. Ange, You need to buy to fit the biggest part: which is your bust. Then, you are going to need alterations. You can have a tailor take in your button-downs, blouses accordingly. Not every shirt is an easy alteration...keep the receipt just in case. Also, consider blouses/dress shirts with stretch in the fabric.

  2. I have discovered that blouses with at least 7 buttons are less apt to gape. Even then, I found that double sided wardrobe tape is an essential.
