I'm looking for some nice, reasonably priced long sleeve t-shirts. I find many unflattering as they have high round necks, also don't like v necks, prefer boat neck or scooped, but not so scooped as to show cleavage (so not fussy at all blush. Does anyone have a favourite place to buy these from?

American Apparel has very nice boat neck 3/4 length t-shirts.

Woah looked at the Jigsaw ones, very nice but out of my price range!

I was going to say jigsaw too as I got two this year and they wash really brilliantly and are somehow incredibly flattering. What is your budget?

Thanks dement, they are nice but I'm really after long sleeves

Prob around £10 each, would consider a bit more for something really lovely!

Boden have some in their essential tee range, long sleeve, scoop neck, range of colours, not sure of price this year, but fairly reasonable. They're cotton, with a bit of stretch so don't go out of shape when washed and are flattering (I got a couple after I had dc3, was a bumpy size 12 and they just skim if you get the right size).

I got some from iniqlo which were also quite nice. Best to buy jigsaw ones in the sale.

Uniqlo!

I have a jigsaw scoop top in dark grey. I'm thinking about buying other colours! It was a bit pricey I suppose I think I paid £37 for it? But they wash well, the scoop isn't too low and the fabric isn't see-through.

I have a white Boden top which is ok, a lot cheaper but the fabric is quite thin so you could easily see your bra through it unless you wear a beige one. I have a navy one too which I wear quite a lot and I don't have the see-through issue with it, so I suppose it depends on the colour.

Gap. Sometimes the colour is hit and miss but they wash and wash. Different necklines and sleeve length too usually.

Oh the uniqlo ones are great, I've never looked there before, thanks.
