Mantaray at Debenhams always have empire line dresses and tops, and yes, very flattering. Only casual though.

warning, an empire line can look worse if you have a tum, it can look like a maternity type top.

I find a dress with a gathered bust and drapes looks quite flattering. I'll have a look.

This isn't empire line but it does fit rather nicely under the bust.

Yup. I have a bust, and a tum, at the moment, and can confirm that Mantaray et al. do make me look pregnant!

Would recommend Fat Face dresses for this. Their knee length and long t-shirt fabric dresses tend to have the 'knot' at the bust then an empire line, so make your boobs look great but are more forgiving on the tum. Also reasonably priced IMO.
