As a woman, finding a button-down shirt that fits properly and keeps your ta-tas covered up is unfortunately more challenging than it should be. Washington lobbyist Rochelle Behrens reached the end of her rope with this phenomenon after numerous occasions when her dress shirts would gape between buttons, unintentionally giving male colleagues a peek at her bra. You know guys, and they didn't hesitate to mock Behrens for her bursting bust.
That's when Behrens had her "Spanx moment." She began devoting all of her free time to working on a design for The Shirt, a button-down shirt meant to fit correctly across a woman's bust, allowing her to remain modest in the workplace. She ended up working with a pattern maker in NYC who worked with Diane Von Furstenberg (lucky!).
Obviously, a shirt like this is something many of us have been missing from our wardrobes, because Behrens projects to sell 10,000 of the shirts by the end of the year. (She even quit her job as a lobbyist!)
Right now, you can buy the button-downs at The-Shirt.com, as well as Bloomingdale's and boutiques nationwide. I want one!
How 'bout you -- is The Shirt something you could use?
