Slim but broad shoulders?

I'm increasingly struggling with buying tops and dresses because almost anything that has a fitted sleeve in is too small across the shoulders.

I'm a size 6-8, not particularly muscled and am a B cup so not big busted. If I find tops or that are fitted/not oversized they are too tight across the shoulders. I've bought two dresses from Closet lately which I've had to have the sleeves taken out of so that it doesn't pull at the shoulders but a bigger size would have been too big everywhere else.

Anyone else having this issue or is it just me? And I only seem to have noticed it over the past couple of years, I'm 38 so stopped growing long before that!

I have a slightly different problem in that I have broad shoulders and big boobs. I've given up on trying to wear anything fitted.
