"Where have you been all my life?"

We hear this all the time from large-busted women who have given up on button downs.

Contrary to popular belief,

big boobs and button downs make a GREAT combination in a shirt from Campbell & Kate. That's because we give you enough fabric for your large bust without swamping your waist. We take the typical size system (2, 4, 6, 8 . . . 16) and specialize even further (2S, 2M, 2L, 4S, 4M, 4L--you get the idea). This way we can accommodate cup sizes from D-H, and you don't have to size up to a larger size on your top than your bottom.

Ready to become a believer in button downs?

Here's how the process works:

1. You give us your measurements and fit preference in the dropdown menus below. It's even more helpful if you give us your bra and pants size in the comments section at checkout (including brands).

2. We send you up to three sizes to compare. If you order one shirt, we only send you one size. Use the quantity dropdown menu to specify how many shirts you want to try at a time.

3. You keep what fits and return the rest OR repeat the process until you find the shirt that's right for you. Shipping and returns are free within the United States, and your credit card is only charged for what you keep four days after receiving your order.

4. Need a few changes after you find your fit? Because we cut and sew our shirts one at a time here in New York City, we can personalize the following for you:

  • substitute French cuffs*
  • lengthen or shorten the sleeves*
  • lengthen or shorten the length*
  • lengthen or shorten the torso*
  • widen or take in the hips*
  • use contrast fabric for the collar band and cuffs*
  • make the waist wider (always complimentary!)

    *There is a $10 fee for each personalization that is only charged once when you place an order for multiple shirts.

5. If you're looking for more colors and patterns, just ask! We'll send you photos and swatches free of charge. Most of our fabrics are Egyptian cotton with a little bit of stretch. We always have white, black and French blue in stock, and we can special order the rest. There is a fabric surcharge of $12, $18 or $20 depending on special order fabric choice.

I just counted the Campbell & Kate shirts in my closet: I'm up to SEVEN! That's how much I love them. The fabrics are substantial, and the buttons are high quality and thoughfully chosen. I'm a 34DD or 36D, and wear an 8M shirt. My last three shirts were custom orders: French cuffs, dropped collars, specialty colors. I get so many compliments when I wear them to work.

Finally, I can wear a button up shirt without the dreaded peephole. These are the only shirts I wear to work and have been fantastic. I will never again buy a button up shirt from anywhere else. I used the fitting program with great results. I provided my measurements and they sent me a couple of sizes to try. The process was awesome. Highly recommended!

I own four shirts, each one almost made to order: longer, fewer buttons at the neck, no darts, yes darts. Darlene was extraordinarily helpful in working with me to get not just the right size, but the right fit. I am wearing my charcoal grey shirt right now for teaching- and wear a Campbell and Kate shirt whenever i want to feel confident, professional and put together. Cannot recommend more highly.

I am a big fan of button ups, but I have always struggled to make them work with my bust and body shape. Campbell & Kate's button up is perfect. I no longer feel like I'm trying to wear a man's shirt. It accentuates my figure, while still looking professional without that dreaded gap. Darlene was amazing at working with me to find the perfect fit with the original white. I recently had a baby, so I sent Darlene my measurements, and she recommended a specific size with adjustments to the waist darts. After we got the right size, I ordered it in an amazing deep pink fabric, which satisfied my desire for vibrant color. Since I live in Phoenix, she even shortened the sleeves. I can't wait to get some more colors for my collection!

I can’t believe Campbell & Kate shirts are not one of Oprah’s favorite things. Get them before they are!!! Adding Campbell & Kate shirts to my wardrobe was the smartest thing I’ve ever done. Who hasn’t glanced over in a meeting only to catch someone glancing through the peep-holes between your buttons? Well the real me can finally stand up (or sit in a meeting) with confidence! Usually, I have to dash into the bathroom and tape up the gaps between my buttons with top-tape – but Campbell and Kate have solved that problem. Their shirts are amazing and comfortable and go with EVERYTHING – if you have a large chest and are trying to get people take their eyes off them to hear what you’re saying – invest! It’s the smartest and simplest makeover I’ve ever tried and I’m glad I did. Also, they spoil you with hand written notes and seasonal color choices in the mail once you’re a customer.

I ordered the French blue shirt and love both the color and fit. No gaps or pinching of the fabric, everything lays very smooth. The shirt is very professional and I am looking forward to getting mileage out of it in future board meetings.

Finally! A classic white shirt that does not have to be taken to the tailor for alterations! I love the quality of the shirt's fabric, the darts and the closeness of the buttons. Can't wait to tell my clients and followers with the same issue about Campbell & Kate!

This shirt is sharp yet soft, tailored and comfortable. I felt put together without feeling constricted. There is no gapping at all! The shirt stayed tucked in and smooth around my waist. The collar is crisp without feeling stiff or scratchy. Overall fit was perfect—sleeves were just the right length. Can’t wait for the shirt to be offered in other colors and patterns!

I am so so pleased with my white shirt. I am a 36DD and usually wear a 2-4 pant. I actually fit best in a 10S which suprised both Darlene and me. But it is what worked best for me. It is a little bit longer which I like and I absolutely love that the darts hit me where darts are supposed to hit me. And instead of looking like a box, my figure actually shows in this shirt. So glad this site was recommended to me. Darlene will work with you to find what is your best option. Worth every bit of the $160.00!!

I was sad when the 6L shirt I originally bought from Campbell & Kate got a large tear in it one day after going through the wash, because it had been one of my favorite shirts: a perfect fit, and it went with everything. I loved it enough that I was happy to replace it, though! I found I needed a size smaller, but Darlene was very helpful about sending me multiple sizes to try, just to be sure. I'm wearing the new shirt as I type. I wear a 32F, and other than my bust, I usually fit into a size 4-6, depending on the cut of the clothing. I have a 4L in this shirt, and it's perfect. The bust darts hit me just right. My fairly broad shoulders aren't squeezed. The waist is neatly tailored to fit my body like a shirt SHOULD fit, instead of like a tent (as so many shirts do). Whether I pair it with a long denim split skirt and riding boots, or a pencil skirt and pumps, it's a staple of my wardrobe.

Note from Campbell & Kate: Our shirts are now now constructed of a higher quality fabric. Badseed1980 is one of our very first customers, and we are thrilled that the fit of her original 6L was so perfect for her that she was willing to try the improved version when it became available.

Before I had the pleasure of trying on a Campbell & Kate shirt, I simply gave up on trying to buy anymore button-down shirts. I was really tired of buying shirts that didn't quite fit my bust. I don't have to worry anymore because my Campbell & Kate shirt not only fits me like a glove, but I feel so secure and comfortable when wearing it. I don't worry that the world can see my bra through the openings between my buttons anymore. As a young professional, it has given me more confidence when layering this shirt with my suits and pencil skirts. It also works perfectly with my jeans and accessories. It honestly is my "go-to item in my wardrobe.

I would normally wear a size 2, but chose a 4S because it's the closest to my measurements at a 28G bra. I'm going to have to tailor it down as it's a little too large in the waist and shoulders, though not by much. For the first time, I have a dress shirt where the darts actually hit where they're supposed to! The strategic placing of the buttons makes certain there will be no gapping issues. It is a thin material, so a very solid nude bra is a requirement to wear under this shirt, unless you prefer a camisole. The quality of construction is great, and I'm looking forward to having more choices in colors!
