If your cups are running over, your silhouette resembles a 50s bullet-breasted babe, or you haven't shopped for a bra in more than six months...do not pass GO. Instead, bone up on the bones of any properly-fitting wardrobe: a bra that fits correctly. In other words, the center part of the bra (the gore) is flat against your body, the girls have a natural separation, and there is no sign of spillage.
Don Allen of Olga and Warner's offers these tips to help solve your bra dilemmas:
PROBLEM: The dreaded double-bubble spilling over the front edge of your bra and/or around your underarm.
SOLUTION: You're wearing the incorrect size, so go for the next size up and try it under a snug tee. If you're not completely contained in your bra and it's readily apparent under the shirt, then you need to keep looking.
SOLUTION: You need a full-coverage bra to cover your full & rounded large-and-in-charge set.
PROBLEM: Shirt refuses to button.
SOLUTION: A minimizer will shave at least one to two inches off your bust, keeping the shape natural (but just a bit flatter) so you can easily button up that blouse.
