Knitting Frustrations!

I have given this alot of thought over the years and I've knit alot but still never seem to find that perfect pattern that can be flattering on people that are full figured and have larger bra sizes especially for summer tops! tried many different yarns styles but to find that perfect top that doesn't make you look bigger then you are and fatter at the same time! Most of the even more slimming effects without cable or diagnals they still seem to make you look like your HUGE!

My latest attempt will be the xBack still lots of frustration yet I will not give up! still knitting and purling away well see what happens next!

So much easier to knit biogger and looser and where bigger clothes but who wants to look baggy, saggy. Stinks having to wear a bra all the time. big chest & chicken legs with larger material! ekkkks!
Now if I could design the perfect designs or someone else wooohooo! We sure could be milionaires!! not everyone is so fortunate to have a chest and don't' give it much thoguht or maybe don't knit for others who do, who knows!! What about pregaunt women and those who aren't who still need to make those increases for things that make them look like they are............Does the frustraion ever end or just knitting the same old styles all the time!
What's a woman to do?!!

I recently bought a brilliant fitted shirt from a bra company in the UK called 'Bravissimo'. It got me thinking how wonderful it would be to have knitting patterns for jumpers and tops that incorporated different bra sizes, e.g. I'm a small back size but large cup size so I often end up having to buy or make things that are too big round the waist just to get them to fit me round the bust. I'm sure there must be a way of doing this with short rows and clever techniques but I don't know enough about design and technique to have a go yet...
