I love the cami's that are out now - but how does somebody with boobs wear them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> ? I mean those thin little straps and low cut backs aren't gonna be the support I need, nor can you exactly wear a bra under them, unless you go strapless which I think looks weird in that kind of top.<br><br>
I like the one on knitty this month, and I saw the one on LTK, anyone have any other favorites? I'd love to try out the cotton blend yarn at <a href="http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/yarn_display.aspx?itemid=5420122" target="_blank">Knitpicks</a> , it's sport weight though and the <a href="http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTsoleil.html" target="_blank">Knitty tank</a> is dk.<br><br>
So, what do other c-cup ladies do out there <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

That yarn called for in the Knitty tank is really light. It is very affordable too. It would only cost me a stamp to send you a snip of it, PM me your address if you would like me to.

big chested here<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">And nursing. I plan on making the knitty nursing top.The peek-a-boob. There was a racy knit halter on knitty in the archives. It's got triangle chest peices and you can infinitely adjust it to fit skimpy or modestly.It looked cute.<br>
Here it is:<a href="http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/PATTcleo.html" target="_blank">http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/PATTcleo.html</a><br>
I am actually torn between the two patterns. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Now I've not knitted too much in the past besides the F&F soaker and I was wondering what level of difficulty both these two patters are (i.e. Cleo and Peek-a-boo)? I am leaning toward the Cleo just because it <i>seems</i> so much simpler, but is it? It seems you can make it as intricate looking as you want.

DK and sprotweight can really be the same, depending on the yarn, so you might be okay with the yarn you want to use, I'd do a gauge swatch <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Now, no help on choosign a pattern, LOL, but I did find some great spaghetti straped sprots bras last week. Made by hanes, I think I got them at kohl's? Three in a packf or $10, white, black and grey. They ROCK! Easy to nurse in, just slid it under the boob, and the spaghetti straps give that layered tank look at the cool kidss are wearing these days <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Thanks for the tips! I'll keep a look out for those sport bras - sounds like they just might do the trick.<br><br>
