Maxi Dress

Do you love Maxi dresses as much as I do?  LOVE them! 

The downside, if you have boobs that are bigger than an A cup, you can't buy many maxi dresses from the store.  Well, you could if you're comfortable revealing the girls to the world.  I, on the other hand, prefer to leave a bit for the imagination... and sometimes for my husband.

They're just so low cut and the ones that are not so revealing don't allow you to wear a bra.  Which of course, those of us WITH boobs, can't pull off!

So, I'm on the hunt for a dress that has straps wide enough to cover bra straps and is more modest than a deep V.  Truth is, I'm pretty sure my best bet is to make something.  However... every time I make something for myself, it's a craft fail!  we'll see.

I love maxi dresses too! I bought two for this summer but both are the tube kind so I have to where a little sweater with them. I would love to find one that I could were a regular bra with. But the deep V neck doesn't bother me... there is nothing left to these puppies!!

Let me know when you find one! I'm on the same boat as you are. Or if you come up with a pattern, I'd love to see it! I'd even pay you for it!

Try this. I am by no means a seamstress, but I am going to be making this soon.

I have the same chest problem as you do and want some maxi dresses...cause let's be honest...I wear a maxi dress so I don't have to shave everyday here in FL.
