I am after a shirt dress to wear in the heat, which one out of any, I'm size 12 with boobs (28FF) thanks! PS have seen someone in the TopShop one looks very nice on - others not seen!

I like the Cos one and the Topshop one is ok too. The others I think will hang from your boobs and make you look a lot bigger than you are if that makes sense?

I hate the way they have buttoned them all the way up!

As a small boobage person, I may be wrong here, but won't shirt dresses just make you look huge all round if you have large boobs - don't you need a waistline of some kind? On that basis, the Cos one I guess. Prefer their wrap dress tho www.cosstores.com/gb/Women/Dresses/Wrap-over_dress/46881-41577767.1#c-24479

phoolani I am lucky - I do have a defined waist as I have a fairly typical hourglass figure!

I do quite like your suggestion but just like the idea of the shirt dress. The Top Shop one if it works is my preferred one even if more trendy and less likely to last for a few seasons than the Cos one which looks more of a classic.

Sorry, I wasn't suggesting you didn't have a waistline! I meant the dress, I'm sure you're waist is lovely! I was making the same point as felicia - your lovely waist will get lost if the dress hangs straight down from your boobs iyswim.

Urgh! Your waist not you're 😱

Phoolani I get what you say... damn those boobs!

Just worth trying it on I guess...

A shirtdress with a belt should be alright for showing you have a waist!

I have a similar figure - 34FF with fairly big hips and small waist. I personally wouldn't wear any of those as they would make me look pregnant again. With the exception of the Cos one as the belt cinches it in.

I have to be honest and say I think those shirt dresses suit our smaller busted counterparts. I would go for something that has definition at the waist and highlights my hourglass figure more.

Hope that helps x
