Women’s button-up shirts are notorious for bunching and gaping around the bustline. You wear a button-up shirt to look professional and be taken seriously, but that entire aim is undermined when the shirt cracks open, giving everyone in the room an unobstructed view of your bra and cleavage. This problem can be especially bad for women following breast augmentation. The contours of an amplified bust can make your average professional blouse practically burst. Though a minimizer bra can reduce the phenomenon, a professional woman has developed a shirt designed to eliminate it completely. Called simply “The Shirt,” this simple but attractive-looking blouse utilizes Dual-Button Technology TM to eliminate a gaping bustline. Dual-Button Technology isn’t really a new technology, it’s just hidden buttons that provide additional security at the bustline. The button-strip is dual-ply, with the hidden buttons only buttoning through the first ply and remaining concealed by the second. Additional gape-control is provided by other shirt features. The Shirt is specifically tailored to give a streamlined fit along the body, shoulders, and bust. And The Shirt’s fabric has a slight stretch to it, allowing for the best and most comfortable fit. It’s hard to know how well The Shirt will work for most women. Although its designer describes herself as “buxom,” she is hardly sonsie in a way that would be recognized. Nor are any of the models used to promote the shirt. This demonstrates more how incredibly inadequate most women’s shirts are, rather than the actual quality of The Shirt. However, The Shirt has been named the “Must Have” fashion of 2011 by Oprah Winfrey, so perhaps it works even better than their own advertising shows.
