So you walk into a store and you see a cute halter top you like. You go to the dressing room to try it on and it fits everywhere else but the boob area. It's so annoying when that happens! Does anyone else have this problem?

I have this problem. For this reason I don't like to buy halter tops, spaghetti straps, strapless, etc. any more, nor do I ever want to even try on button-down shirts. Even most ladies t-shirts are not flattering. And shopping for a bathing suit aggravates me just thinking about it. I have a large bust/chest area (36DDD) and narrow waist and hips (size 4--size 2 if those were able to not squeeze my calves so much!). This kind of figure shouldn't be envied so much by all these young women giving me the "up-down-scowl" look as I like to call it.

Anyway I don't know if the OP has the same problem but trying on something cute and seeing how ridiculous it looks on me...it sucks (for lack of a better term). I wonder who is designing these clothes. It makes me not want to spend money on clothes.

Ya I do have this problem and it does suck! Why can they make flattering tops for women who's cups overfloweth who aren't fat!? It's like they think if you're busty you're fat or plus-sized and that's not always true.

CancerianMoonPrincess: (me too!) We are blessed, aren't we and just need to be prepared to take time to try on more clothes. It helps to learn which styles and brands fit best--also wear a really well-fitted bra. What I don't like is that sleeveless tops gap at the armholes.

Maybe there's just something odd about the way you're shaped and they don't make tops for folks like you.
