Default The quest for a suit continues...

On the advice of some of you here, I bought a suit a few months ago that I think looks pretty good on me. I'm pretty much an inverted triangle, and so people recommended that I buy a structured, heavier-material suit, and that I spend a bit more than I'm used to. So I did, and it's nice.

Then, I went out and bought another suit on a whim, just because I was out shopping and couldn't believe that the jacket fit perfectly off the rack.

Today, I bought a third suit! Mind you, I don't wear suits for work. They're for interviews only, so I think I may be going overboard. But here's the thing: I've been under the impression that suits for bigger-breasted women should "lock and load," as Stacy and Clinton would say. The first two suits have three or four buttons and cover my chest. However, the suit I bought today buttons under the chest. And I was surprised to find that I actually like how it looks. I don't feel as smooshed down.

So, for those of you who are big on top, do your suits button under your chest? What do you think is the best suit silhouette for our body type?

I prefer no buttons (probably won't even find any like that currently) but if they have them, I don't like them when as you described the first two - they look and feel frumpy/bunchy on me.

ETA: I'm not, however, inverted triangular shaped like you. More figure 8 - full figure 8, LOL

I don't think I've ever seen a suit without buttons. That would probably solve my dilemma, though!

I'm old - I've seen a lot of styles come and go, LOL. My favorite suits ever had no lapels and no buttons, minimizing the look of the bust. I'm large busted and short waisted, making me look even larger if I'm not careful. This style worked the best for me.
