okay - and the term is breasts or bosom...

I'm a big fan of TLC's What not Wear, and there was a show on recently where they put a woman into tops with diagonal seams, but I can't find it online - they did give this advice on their site, though - long line for the top and flare at the bottom seems to be the theme (this is a cut and paste from the site):

"Stacy points out that because of Tanyas chest size, the jacket should have some length to it. A longer jacket will create a balanced look by supporting Tanya's chest and thinning her torso. The pants should flare at the bottom and have some room in the leg.

Clinton explains how a fuller-cut skirt that flares away from the body can help balance a larger chest.

Our fashion gurus suggest that Mai wear a lace camisole to downplay her chest.  They also show her how pairing a skirt that breaks around the knee with a high-buttoned jacket can make her look taller and thinner."

hmm. i always do well with a V neck or scoop neck dress, because it gives attention to my collarbone/neck instead of my boobs. of course, you do need to make sure it doesnt show a lot of (or any) cleavage, cause then i guess it would be counterproductive.
a princess seam would work, as would a wrap dress... i have a friend who wore a wrap dress the other night to dinner, and one of our guy friends wouldn't get over how good she looked (and i agreed with her on how good her boobs looked while not appearing to be huge)
a flared skirt will always balance the figure, making the waist look small and cute, therefore emphasizing the waist instead of the chest.
i found that if i can get some sort of neckline design that is below the actual neckline, my boobs look smaller just because the line makes the size seem less.. grrr i'm going to have to draw a picture....

(i'm not talking about like a lacy frock looking thing or anything like that, just some sort of trim, maybe some embroidery or piping or something)

i hope that helps, i'm still on the lookout for some de-emphasizing dresses for more conservative outings (being a DD and 19 is nice for going out with friends, but sometimes you gotta go to lunch with your grandma) and this is what i've come up with so far in my search. Smiley

I think I might shorten the outside edge of the sleeve, something more like this:

So that it's less of a horizontal line in the bust area, though my change makes it more of a wide strap than a sleeve.

As an experiment, I played around with a horizontal line below the bust line, and came up with these color combinations (darker color on top makes the area less noticeable):
pinkish red: 

Paint's not too friendly with coloring in pictures that weren't made in paint, but I thought they came out pretty nice.  Depending on what colors your MIL looks good in, those might be some options to think about.

I also played around with diagonals a bit:
black with maybe lace in the bottom corner:

In all circumstances with the spray paint circles, I was thinking a subtle print (tone on tone, maybe, or black on background color) or something like a lace overlay.

Well, it's a lot easier to do it in paint than to do it in fabric.  Wink 

I know some people don't look good in black (my mother comes to mind. She looks much better in green, for example), so I thought some other options would be good.  But if she's looking at black anyway...

heh heh. bosom.

Ahem. A belt might be a good idea, since What Not to Wear always preaches the importance of "cinching the narrowest part of you" idea. Which is sometimes at the waist, but can also be just under the bustline.

heh heh. bosom.

The fact that you're laughing makes me think of in middle school when we read a poem about a person's bosom burning with desire and the entire class burst out laughing. Our teacher couldn't figure out why until she found out that for some reason we all thought bosom meant your rear. I don't know where we got that idea but somewhere down the line my entire grade had gotten that definition messed up. Suddenly all our teachers understood why we thought bosom was such a funny word.

ANYWHO's I also agree with Molly Millions about the belt. With the neckline you have now and a belt I think you're really going to manage to draw the attention away from her chest as well as accenting her waist which is another good thing to do. I know you said she was looking at black dresses but I would try Navy blue as well. I dunno I just find it can be a more flattering color sometimes IMO.

a wasnt to sure if i was gonna pull this off so as a prototype i made a dress for myself (which my mother in law loved)
she really liked  the style of it and the length and even how it was over the breast area so now i have a better idea of what she likes and im smiling all the way!!!!

im making a start on monday, i have to go get the right material she likes flowy not fitted so you cant see any of her lumps and bumps!!!

heres the link for the dress i made for myself   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=263577.0

i am a big booby person and would recommend a Criss cross type neck line you know the kind o v-neck that has the 2 piece's of fabric overlapping. in my experience this has been the best type because it covers and gives partial support and can easily cover a bra.
