None of my summer jackets cover my massive boobs... help!

I have a 7 week old DD and I'm breast feeding. With the appearance of the warm weather I have realised that not one of my lightweight jackets comes even close to doing up over my new massive boobs (I'm currently wearing a 34FF). I'm really struggling with the new big boobs - I can't see why anyone would want big boobs - they're in the way and make me look huge!

Does anyone have any suggestions for where to go to get a jacket that will fit me properly? I'm a size 10 (pushing a size 12 at the moment) everywhere else so I'm very top heavy.

Please help my find something that doesn't make me look like Jessica Rabbit!

Size 32f here, and I find open jackets work best for me. Are you looking for any particular style/occasion?

Thanks for replying. I'd just like a nice summer jacket - quite like biker type jackets but in a light weight material. Where do you tend to shop for jackets?

Oasis and h and m. I've never bought a biker one though!

Im the same size as you up top and recently bought this jacket from Gap. I have the blue and it's not a shiny as it looks in that pic. It's the first jacket I've had in a long time that does up and doesn't stretch over my boobs.

I don't even bother trying to do jackets up....

Also this was recommended on another thread, supposed to come up big, waisted and cotton

Lonely I really like the look of that GAP one - thanks, think I'll try that.

Thanks all for the ideas.
