Any shrug experts out there?

I've never bought a shrug, but I now have several outfits that are crying out for a black shrug. Where can I buy a nice one? There are loads around but they seem quite expensive and I would prefer to get one that keeps its shape, washes well etc. Shrug experts, please advise me! I am going to bed now but will check in in the morning. Thanks!

I was looking for one to go with a black and white sleeveless dress and guess where I got one from?

Sainsburys! they have two different styles of black short cardigan/edge to edge style boleros (have to say it looks nicer than the boleros that don't seem to have much 'front' to them and manage to make my boobs look ginormous)

I had a nice one last year from Monsoon (bolero style) and a nice one from Phase Eight (like a shawl collar, but bolero style) - I've been happy with both. About £40 each, I think. I bought them in around May/June - I don't know if they're already stocking them for summer.

I also have short sleeve M&S cropped cardi with a v neck (I don't do the buttons up) which serve the same purpose and they were £12 each.

Thanks Gemma and Happy, really good tips! I'd forgotten Phase Eight but that's definitely worth a try. Will look in Sainsbury's too!
