Unhappy Show coats for "full figures"?????

I am in desperate need of a show coat. The problem I am having is my chest.....while I can walk into Gap or Old Navy and buy a pair of size 8-10 jeans off the rack, I have to go to Lane Bryant or somewhere to get a size 16/18 shirt, because my chest is too big. For those that aren't offended, I am currently a size 42DD, and I'm only 5'1 1/2". I need a show coat in a size 16-18 to fit my chest, but because I'm so stinkin short, it comes almost to my knees. Does anyone know of any tack stores online that either cater to the larger rider, or offer show coats in a "short" size? My other option would be to buy the coat I want, and then have it shortened. I'm just concerned that will make it look kinda funny. Any suggestions would be appreciated at this point!!

I read on another forum that there is a new brand out there for full figured women called Fuller Fillies or something like that. I googled it and found this site: Fuller Fillies - Home It looks like they have show clothes as well as every day riding clothes.

I checked it out. They have some nice stuff! My only concern is I would swim in those coats, lol. They seem to be fuller figured all the way around, not just in the chest. I will have to do some closer looking for their size charts! Thanks!!

I would buy a coat in your chest size, then take it to a tailor and get it altered. OR you can have a coat made in your size.

I'm thinking the most economical way will be to buy the coat that fits the chest and then pay someone to shorten it. Blah. Why can't I have a "normal" upper body, lol?

I'm also busty, although not that large. What I would suggest (and what I ended up doing) is buying a larger coat that can close over your chest (even if its a size 18 or 20 or whatever) and then go to a good tailer and tailer it down around the waist. You'll be surprised how good it looks, because it should fit you beautifully then

Thanks a bunch! I'm just worried that I will have to have the bottom hemmed as well, and that could look royally ******ed if the vents are short, lol.
