Can anyone recommend a good white shirt/blouse? I need 1 or 2 for work. I normally hate shirts so must be comfy ideally stretchy. Not sure where would be best. Im a size 10 if that makes any difference. Thanks

Have you looked at the usual: H&M, New Look, Dorothy Perkins, Top Shop? Also ASOS might.

Isabella Oliver has some gorgeous (but spenny) ones.

Mamas and papas don't have any.
Mothercare only got 1 with 3/4 sleeves but no reviews. short sleeves would be better.
Next don't have any.
Jojo maman bebe have one at 26pound so pricey if I get 2.
I didn't think of new look or DP thanks.

I saw one in H&M about 2 days ago..

Isabella Oliver is out. I am not spending £75 to wear something 3 or 4 times!!

Girrafe it's not on h&m online for some reason!

Does it have to be white? Only it'll have to be awfully thick if you don't want your bra on show. Your industrial pregnancy bra...

Yes work dress code for the conference so has to be white hmm
I don't mind wearing a vest top under as that's what I normally do when not pregnant.
I've found 2, jojo maman bebe and mothercare so I'll order one of each and try them on. Everything in jojo is too long for me so I'm sure the shirt will be the same but I'll give it a try.
Any other recommendations or ideas of where to look very much appreciated and thank you to those already.

I got one from h&m it was good value so could buy two. It doesn't button all the way down though.

Sorry just seen you've responded about h&m

What about one of these from Asos?

Gap has one

Never thought of gap thank you!

Was in H&M today and they've still got some white blouses in the Trafford Centre store.
It wasn't expensive and has washed well (just once so far!) Its not 100% cotton which is a shame but it does the job and looks much nicer than the jojo maman one I had to send back which just didn't fit well around my boobs and bump.

I got one in gap, it's quite thin thought so you do need a vest underneath.

I tried the Jo-jo one on last weekend. The quality at jo/jo is way better than h&m so you may be able to sell on later. I chose a different top in the end from there as I didn't particularly need white. I then found a shirt sleeve blue pinstripe in h&m reduced to £7 and then £5 at the till. No use to you but I love a bargain grin
