Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I don't know about you but I hate when my breast play a game of peek-a-boo whenever I wear a button down shirt. Isn't it awkward when  people are staring at you and you don't know why until you look down to see that your girls are exposed? Yeah, it's an embarrassing moment. As a woman with an ample bosom, I am always on the hunt for button down shirts that don't gap in the middle and that don't look ridiculously wrinkled by the end of the day. When I was contacted by a team member over at Foxcroft, a woman's apparel collection, to try out a couple of their essential button down shirts, I jumped at the chance.

(Continue reading for a 20% discount)

I've always gone to the Gap or Jones New York for my button down shirts but sometimes it nice to have more than 2 options.   They sent me a classic non-iron cotton essential tunic (pictured below) and a purple front pocket essential blouse The blouses are made with 100% Non-Iron Pinpoint Oxford Cotton and they offer a structured fit which helps eliminate the gap. Foxcroft not only offers misses sizes up to an 18 but they also carry women's plus size shirts that go up to a size 24W.

When I tried on the blouse I liked the fit. The bottom hem of the white non-iron shirt was rounded and the tab sleeves allowed me to play around with different lengths. I ordered the size 18 and it fit fine as long as I keep the shirt tucked in. If I wanted to wear it out and let it hang loose then I would have needed to order a size up. The shirts are not stretch so they offer a structured fit.

I chose to play around and come up with 3 casual chic looks that fit my lifestyle. Check them out and tell me what you think:

For the first look, I teamed the shirt up with my new floral pants from Simply Be. 

For a casual everyday look, I tied the shirt up and wore it over a my sleeveless geo print dress.

Last but not least, I went for a casual Friday office look with my yellow striped blazer and wide leg jeans.

Foxcroft was also nice enough to offer you my readers a 20% discount off your first purchase. All their shirts are under $100 so you're definitely getting a deal. To get the discount use code Stylishc20. The code expires September 30th. You can visit their site HERE

I need to get a nice simple white button down, because I don't have one. Yeah that is sad because having a white button down is suppose to be a key item in any wardrobe.

Im not a button down shirt kinda gal but after looking how you styled the shirt in 3 different ways, I might have to rethink it! Those floral pants look so good on you!
