Since this topic seems to creep up (no pun intended :) frequently, I thought I'd post some helpful links that describe how to alter tops for a full bust:

Detailed description with photos: Full bust enlargement (on a Petite Plus site, but adjustment works for all shapes and sizes)

Gigi's discussion on the boards here at PR

Eliminating a gaping armhole. This discusses fixing armhole gaping after making a full bust adjustment.

Hope these help!
