i'm wondering if anyone has any advice to offer on what shirts are most flattering for one who has ample (more ample than ample!) bosom.

also, what style/cut of jeans look best/most flattering (if thats really possible) for my lovely still wide childbearing hips?

thanks ladies!!

bootcut jeans best to balance out hips

For big boobs, nothing that comes up too high (polo necks are out) - more scoopy/v-necks. Also no breast pockets on shirts., if you do find a cut that doesn't have gape-y buttons. Trinny and Susannah reckon wrap tops (like a ballerina) but never worked for me, just made them look more enormous. I think that fitting rather than baggy is good.

Wrap tops are lovely but always gape open-what are you supposed to wear underneath-a nice vest?

shirts not that good unless fitted, as "spare" fabric can make your waist non-existent

With my 36GG hoo-hars and size 12 body I have found the most flattering combo to be a minimiser bra, a tight black vest, a fitted shirt with bottom 2 buttons done up, rest left open and bootcut jeans.

Looking forward to some surgery one day!

same here sassy, well 36DD so respect to you in the bosom department, but I hate having to buy a 16 top to get my norks in it and then have a tent round my waist.

I am hoping shirt-waister dresses will come back in style
