I've always wanted to find something like this to wear for practice in warm weather for occasions where I didn't necessarily want to go showing my belly. (Ever been kind of intimidated showing up to class or a workshop as an average girl when all of your Amazonian fellow classmates are fully made-up and are showing so much belly you don't even have to wonder if they're wearing undies under their Melodias? That's why I don't always want to show the belly. I love the belly, I just..don't want to be one of those sorts. Not that I run the risk of qualifying as "Amazonian").
Anyway, this is the perfect pattern. And judging from the photo it can accommodate those who are amply bosomed. I see things like this in hip little hippy shops but they are a) always crocheted, which is fine, but expensive and b) NEVER EVER LINED! When it comes to crochet....you must line!! Knitting something like this probably should require lining as well, but doesn't have to I suppose. If you're a seamstress like me you won't have any problems hand-stitching a stretchy material into the cups for modesty.
