Bright Idea: Shirts Sized Like Bras

08/14/2006 at 03:12 PM ET

Buttondown shirts have always been my nemeses. The bust always gapped or pulled, the waist was always droopy, and the arms were embarassingly short. That all changed with Rebecca and Drew, a line of buttondown shirts sized by bra size and torso length from 32ARegular to 38DDLong. The shirts fit me like a dream! The sleeves on the Long are just the right length for my monkey arms, and the double buttons over the bust keep it closed no matter how much I move around. Apparently, the word is out as Scarlett Johansson, Drew Barrymore, and Katie Holmes are all fans of the blouses too. I just branched out from the basic white that I’ve been living in to a sleek black one, and I’m eyeing the chiffon tuxedo versions, which would be perfect for a holiday cocktail party.

Even better, for the next 2 weeks, use JUSTFORYOU at checkout and save 20% on everything at, including the sale items! — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

This is an awesome idea!! Finally a clothing company that understands that not all button down shirts look good on every body. Some button downs on me end up either too boxy, to tight, to loose…well you know what I mean. This idea is awesome and it is a must have! (personally speaking)

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this type of sizing. There’s nothing worse than having to buy a size L when you’re busty and have the waist and arms make it look like you ganked it from your husband’s closet!

I hear that there are going to be more affordable shirts sized by bra size on HSN this fall. . . I think the line is called Sophie Hudson. . .
