    38H- something else you could do, if you have the money, is buy a dress you really like in a size large enough to fit your chest and have it tailored! I don’t think the tailoring would cost *that* much, and could make a less expensive dress look like a million bucks. Which would make you *feel* like a million bucks.

    I love that black Old Navy dress. And the price is awesome. I may have to buy myself one, you know, for when I may/may not be knocked up again.

    Just wanted to sympathize wiht you, 38H. I’m 36 weeks, and, while I’m not quite as “gifted” as you are, I am down to wearing only my most stretched-out 36DD bras, and they don’t really fit these days.
    I have not found one single dress this entire prgnancy that didn’t make my boobs look even bigger and disproportionate, and I’m so sick of empire tops on which the empire waistline is actually right in line with my nipples.
    Oh. And what the hell is up with all of the GAPING v-necks? I borrowed tons of cute, professional maternity tops from a friend to wear to work, but since I don’t really enjoy showing off my bra at work, I have to put a tank top under each one of them. Sheesh.

    This was a great letter, thank you so much for sharing it with us. I’m 17 weeks pregnant and looking for any clothes I can find at this point. I’m also amply blessed in the breast department (think 36L – yes, they come that big) and was very excited to see the dress from Old Navy. I ordered it today and am keeping my fingers crossed that it will work.
    Oh and I have to agree with everyone else, I can’t stand anything with an empire waist that just draws a line directly across my nipples. Like I really need anything else to draw attention in that area.
    Thank you!

    Have you thought about trying something in a plus-size or plus-size maternity? I know that you aren’t actually plus-size, but if you can wear an XL in regular sizes then you might be able to wear the smallest size they have in the pluz-sizes. I think they tend to add extra room up top, so you might actually find an empire waist that fits. Motherhood Maternity offers all sizes. If you think this would make you look like you were swimming in material then please disregard this comment.

    My friend has a very large chest on a small frame and is currently 14 weeks pregnant, and she’s found some really great stuff here: http://www.figure8maternity.com
    Good luck!

    I am having this same issue.. only I am a 40N and people can’t even see my belly they’re so big. I’m only 5′ and originally 116lbs- so yes, very tiny. I’m 31 weeks and now I have these horrible boobs (I would literally rather have none) and cannot find anything that fits and looks slightly flattering for my shower. I look so disproportionate and am embarrassed all the time. Especially since my sister in law is 33 weeks and looks adorable..
