Kan Teq vests are designed by and made only for women. I know there hasn't been a body that Wendy has not been able to fit. They can be expensive (start at 235 Euros) but I have heard nothing but kudos by women who have one.
I'm a 32H (gods...its TERRIBLE). I ride in a custom Rodney Powell. It wasn't too bad on the cost, and the perk of having something made for me (you can select different sizes front and back) was invaluable when you're short, and of odd measurements. Its also insanely comfortable.
When I was a G I wore a Tipperary and still wore it after my breast reduction when I became a DD/D. I just bought a KAN though and I have to say it actually allows me to breathe, something I struggled with in the Tipp. I haven't done more than flat in it at this point though. My one dislike of it is that it is basically impossible to do things that require you to have your arms over your head, like to remind the 17hh horse that he needs to put his head down to put his bridle on. Otherwise though, it's awesome.
Love my Airowear. I'm a DDD/E. I fit in the standard Large. I think it's not as light as some of the other vests, but since I can actually breathe in it, I don't care. I could never breathe comfortably in a Tipperary.

I just got a Kan Teq, and used to wear an Aerowear.
The cover just arrived on Friday, and I wore it to ride on the flat on Saturday. I haven't jumped in it yet, but I am very pleased.
It is a completely diiferent kind of foam from most vests, and it is molded to the correct shape- unlike most vests which are "sheets" of foam - tailored rather than molded. It is the sme kind of molded foam used in Motorcycle back protectors, and made by Knox.
PS I wear an 'E" bra.
