Yea I like that yoga shirt. For some reason I view spaghetti strapped tank tops now as strictly for under shirts. It almost looks uncompleted to just wear the spaghetti strap as a top to me now.

Yeah that is pretty much the only way I wear the spaghetti-strap type of tank tops. I do have a couple with the built-in bra, but without an overshirt - it just looks like I am showing off my boobs.

I wear them to sleep in. But, otherwise, I use them as true camisoles...strictly layering only.

[I]Really?[/I] My local Macy's has tons of D cup bras. Far more selection than smaller sizes actually. I notice that 34B-40DD bras are the "average" range in stores and have the most in stock.

My older sis is a DD and wears a strapless from VS too....

I've noticed this as well. I'm small and have a terrible time finding my size-no matter where I shop.

The tanks I wear have straps wide enough to cover my bra straps. I see teeny boppers running around with their straps showing; grown women should know better.

Me, too! I've often though of having breast reduction surgery. Anybody had that done?

I unfortunately avoid halters for the sole reason of my chest is too large to pull off without a bra (every single move would be easily visually documented ). If in tank tops/spaghetti straps, eh, whatever, I don't like bra straps showing, but it's better than the other alternatives (not getting to wear the shirt, or having to go sans-bra). I HATE that built in stuff. Two of my favorite shirts have them, and the elastic band stops about 3/4 down my breast, leaving the bottom 1/4 uncomfy, and smashed between my bra and the elastic.

My 22 year old daughter is large chested so she always wears a bra under her tanks but doesn't care that it shows. She buys attractive bras in a varitey of colors and just makes it part of the "look". Just now she came by wearing a grey t-back sports bra under a green tank top. It looked pretty good actually, kind of a layered look. Nothing sloppy or revealing about it.

She has a special bra for halter tops that has straps that go around her neck.

Could be, but I don't shop at either of those stores. As a general rule, if I can't buy it at Target or a similarly priced store, odds are I'm not getting it.
