Dress Shirts by Bra Size!
Posted on July 29 2008
We're big advocates of the peek-a-bra, but only when it's intentional. A splash of color or a bit of delicate lace showing under a cocktail dress is one thing, but inadvertent exposure due to button bulge is quite another. Whenever I'm sporting a sleek top that fits a bit tight through the bust, I always put my husband on "button patrol." It happened just the other night at a cocktail party - a strategically positioned button on my favorite vintage dress decided to wriggle free of its cumbersome buttonhole and join the party. I always wear a slip or camisole underneath it for that precise reason, but regardless, it is still so embarrassing! Being modestly sized in the chest, I can only imagine the frustration of someone more well-endowed, particularly in the workplace. Finding cute dress shirts is hard enough, but finding the perfect fit is even more elusive. Fortunately, Rebecca & Drew pioneered the TrioFit sizing method, which takes bra size and height into account. It's amazing no one thought of it before! Even better news - they're having a sample sale! I haven't personally tried them yet, so I can't attest to the fit, but I couldn't resist the $35 price tag on custom sized, beautifully made dress shirts, and I thought it only fair to share with you, our faithful readers. Enjoy!
