Tops for work, large boobs

I've just started a new job, desk job with lots of customer contact, so smart but not necessarily blouse and blazer.

I quite like smart jersey tops and usually go for v or scoop necks as I am size 34f bra size and find them quite flattering. I don't wear black although do like white with black pattern.

I've been into town today but couldn't find anything I like. I looked in the usual places but ran out of time and patience!

I usually wear a black or grey knee length skirt or black trousers and maybe grey cardi over if cold.

I've been to Dorothy Perkins this morning and picked up a scoop neck long sleeved top in pink with lace pattern, a white scoop necked top and turquoise cardigan. Hope that will put me on for a bit with the white top I ordered yesterday from House of Frazer.

Thanks, I like that, ordered it in white.

I have one of these from House of Fraser - not the most exciting top but avaiable in lots of colours, good neckline for boobs without being revealing and a bargain in the sale! If you're between sizes, size up.

Dorothy Perkins usually has boob-friendly clothes.

Pepperberry clothes are always disappointing IME.

I had a look at the Pepperberry website but didn't really like anything much.

I'm getting a bit desperate now as I have one white blouse I don't really like and one black and white patterned top that is a bit low so need to find something before Friday. I can't get into town, only our local town where we just have very small Dorothy Perkins, Wallis and New Look. Or I'll have to order online.

Have you tried Pepperberry the clothing bit of Bravissimo? Look online or go in a bravissimo store as they also have a clothing section.

Most of my smart plain T-shirts are from Hobbs. I buy cheapo blazers from H&M and 'nicer' ones from Hobbs sales.

Thanks. So looks like dresses or plain top and blazer is the way to go.

I only have one blazer and don't wear black or navy, other than trousers or skirt. Can't really afford lots of blazers either. Not keen on the one I have anymore either tbh, it's very long and grey.

Where do you buy smart plain tshirts and are they cotton ones?

I also tend to go for a dress and blazer or a t-shirt and skirt and blazer. Most tops are too low cut (am a teacher) or too high cut so horribly unflattering. Wrap tops/dresses don't flatter me much, if at all. So I just tend to go for v plain, scoop or round neck t-shirts tucked in, blazer over and often a scarf. It looks smart enough and gives a fairly stream-lined look in a way that blouses and tops don't tend to.

I like that too but wasn't sure if it's smart enough for work. I really struggle to work out what is smart enough ...

... although it looks really odd on the model.

I like that HazleNutt.

The bird top might be a bit low cut, what about this neckline:

Just had a look - quite like this one:

www.phase-eight.co.uk/fcp/product/phase-eight/Tops/Kissing-Birds-Top/301296441

but would it be suitable for work?

Also this one:

Aw, that last one is not available in my size.

HazleNutt Mon 25-Feb-13 09:04:26

I have several Phase 8 tops, they have some nice scoop necks suitable for office.

thebestpossibletaste Mon 25-Feb-13 08:19:24

grin Ah, ok. Still not a big fan of scarves ...

AlisonMoyet Mon 25-Feb-13 07:58:19

No. Scarf with a t shirt , loony !!

thebestpossibletaste Sun 24-Feb-13 23:21:26

I don't like blouse and scarf combos, too air hostessy wink

Not keen on wearing a blazer either tbh.

AlisonMoyet Sun 24-Feb-13 22:55:52

My sister (very well blessed in the boob department) has that blossom print dress, it's lovely and looks smart.

SarkyPants Sun 24-Feb-13 21:36:41

I hate wrap dresses. I feel like people meet my boobs first IYKWIM smile

I wear both those to work, but my work is a bit of a free for all she it comes to clothes.

thebestpossibletaste Sun 24-Feb-13 21:25:09

I like the blossom print dress. Would you wear that for work?

thebestpossibletaste Sun 24-Feb-13 21:24:15

Sarkypants, I like dresses too but struggle to find ones I like. I tend to prefer wrap dresses because the deep v neck flatters my chest. Hope they will be smart enough for work too?
