Thank you for taking your time!
I tried varius ammounts of padding on my chest/hips and it help. But it's still a mess I'm afriad.
It's like the garment is made for a person with small breasts and a big rear end/wide hips (or something).
Even if I could add volume underneath to fit the vest I don't want to distort my figure to such a large extent.
The next step (I guess) is as you suggest to ask a friend that know the drill to have look.
For me that would translate into a tailor... lol
