Sorry to interrupt into a ladies thread, but my wife has the same issues. We travel to the UK frequently and when there she goes to a British shop which caters to women with exactly these problems. Is is called Bravissimo. They feature bras, tops and dresses. You might want to see if they can ship to the US.

Hope that helps. Bravissimo | Big Bras, Lingerie, Swimwear and Clothing for big boobed women

For the mods - I have no financial interest in the company, so this is not an ad or anything. Just thought it might help.

Have you tried the INC brand? I'm very large chested as well (38ddd-e), and while I'm not petite, the rest of my body is proportionally much smaller - so I totally feel your pain!! My problem is usually in the shoulders, arms & waist, where everything hangs when it fits my chest. Anyway, I've always found the INC brand to fit quite well, and they show just enough to be sexy without being trashy... you can find them at Macy's, and a few other department stores. Good luck!

LOL... sorry, but I had to laugh at their tag-line (for big boobed women)! Thanks for sharing the link, and maybe it will be useful to me as well.

Edit: I just skimmed the website, and while the prices are a bit high, they do have some VERY cute stuff! I also love their sizing charts - you can be a 12 curvy, 12 really curvy, or 12 super curvy. Hehehe. To the original poster, I've always found that styles like this work great, and I have similar shirts that I love...

I feel your pain Oobie !!! I'm 5'8" and a size 9 with a 36 DDD. Try fashion Bug, sometimes they have cute stuff that actually fits. I like Nordstroms too, though a bit pricey. My friend gave me a Core top for my Birthday recently and I love it. I think they have stores across the US. Good luck !

Again, look at this woman. This is an ad for a big-chested woman clothing line? YIKES, I must be mammoth, what is she a B cup?? SHe's got to be a 34D-- Victoria Secrets have no concept of what a true D cup is-- My cousin is an A cup, and she wears a C in theirs!

That's not actually an ad for the large chested clothing line. I don't want to post a copyrighted picture, but if you check the link, they do actually have larger chested models.

They might have a few bustier models, but I agree with the original poster... Victoria's Secret wouldn't know a D-cup if it hit them in the face. I once made the mistake of trying their DD "full-figure" bras (I can usually squeeze into a 38DD without a problem), and I don't even think both cups would have been enough fabric for one boob! Not to mention, the salesgirl was extremely rude, and asked me more than once "are you buying a gift for someone?" - even if that makes sense it's highly unprofessional, and her tone/face was totally obnoxious. Guess they don't want our business, so I just spend my money at Macy's and Frederick's instead.

Oh, I just realized your comment was about that picture I posted... AnthonyB is correct, their website does have a good number of TRULY busty models! Some of the models are kinda small, but I was impressed at the variety of sizes they show & carry.

Not sure if this is PG-13 enough to display, so I'll just post the link... Lingerie / Everyday Essentials / Natural Charm Bra by Kalyani, Underwired balconette, available from 28D - 40K in Refresher, Black, Grey Marl, Lemon/Grey Marl, Orange Stripe and White / (KA61) | Bravissimo (http://www.bravissimo.com/products/lingerie/everyday-essentials/kalyani/balconette-bras/ka61-details.aspx?colour=Refresher - broken link)
That girl is at least a DD - and very beautiful, in my opinion.

Don't most of them wear T-shirts?

Seriously though...couldn't they buy "men's" shirts at big and tall stores?
