Made to Fit: InStyle Essentials Classic Button Front Shirt Product Review

  |   By Elisabeth Dale

One of my fashion-related boob problems has been finding a well-fitting, classic button front shirt.

I love to wear them with jeans, skirts, or a nice pair of slacks. But for most of my on-and-off-again DD life, I’ve had to put up with buying a button front shirt that is either (a) too big in the sleeves or bodice so there’s room for my bust, or (b) fits everywhere else but gaps in front. I’m either swimming in sleeves and shirt tails or tailoring with a tacky safety-pin.

That’s why I’m thrilled there are now clothing companies focused on fab fashions made with a woman’s bra size in mind. And when InStyle Essentials offered to send me one of their white, classic button front shirts, I jumped at the chance to try it.**

I ordered the 34DD (in my bra size) and couldn’t wait for it to arrive. As promised, it fit like a glove. The long-sleeve stretch cotton shirt features princess seams that are designed to fit my curves. What I especially love are the way the buttons are spaced, closer together where extra security is needed, but hidden by the shirt placket. The classic design makes it simple to pair up with any bottom, from casual to dressy.

InStyle Essentials’ collection of classic white shirts includes three other designs: a sleeveless Bow Blouse, sporty Weekend Tunic, and a chic Tuxedo Shirt. Whichever you choose, I’m sure you’ll find the same great fit.

All of the InStyle Essentials shirts are sized to fit bra bands from 32 to 40, and cups B through H. (How great that InStyle Essentials appreciates that smaller busts need custom-sized shirts, too.) They retail for $59.99 to $69.99.

What do you think of InStyles Essentials custom fit white shirts? Would you wear one?
