Suggestions for Women's Cycling Jersey's with REAL shelf-braws?

My GF just started riding this year with me -- I've been riding on road (and off-road a little) for about 16yrs. She's doing well overall.

She is wearing my 'old' cycling jersey's from when I was 145lbs and 15yrs younger ... and they are working okay for her.

When we've searched, both online and at brick & mortar stores, for women's cycling jersey's, we've had absolutley NO LUCK in finding any kind of wicking sports shirts/jersey's with REAL shelf-braws built into the shirt ... the kind with the under-wire. She does not feel comfortable in the standard shelf-braw jersey's that are tight ... she doesn't like the "smashed" feeling/look in the least. She has tried on several higher quality jersey's that have the standard shelf braws. She simply won't wear them since she is not comfortable.

Can anyone point us in the right direction for some sports shirts/jersey's with the better shelf-braws that have more support and do NOT have the standard tight/smashing contour and fit?

Thanks very much for any suggestions!

Tell her to start with the Team Estrogen website: www.teamestrogen.com.

Title Nine Sports has a good selection of sports bras too. I can't remember their website, but google them.
