tis quite nice.3 designs,guessing 8 or 10ish,big on me but looks ok layered with another vest underneath.

Agree it is ok, but I would guess it is more like a 12-14. I am tall, 8-10 and it is so low cut on me that I would not even be able to wear a strapless bra under it as the sides of the bra would show under my armpits. A bigger girl might not have this problem though. Shame as had it been cut a bit higher in the front then it would have been great value for the price of the magazine!

I bought it today - I got the blue version. I thought it would be ideal for putting over a bikini as a cover up or to under a loose fit top . Not sure I will wear it otherwise.

I read Elle every month so I will end up getting this vest.

As a freebie, it doen't make a great deal of sense because it probably isn't the best quality whereas the magazine itself doesn't really mention the cheaper/disposable end of the high street at all.

Does it have "Elle" emblazoned across it?

I had a look in the shop and the fabric looks really nasty - the kind that shrinks really easily even on a cool wash.
Am biased tho, those freebie tops never look good on me, they are always designed for tall, slim and small of nork IMOE

The vest is not worth buying the magazine for. I doubt I will ever wear mine as I pretty much always wear a bra and I can't wear one with the vest as it shows <<don't like the nipples on parade look and can't be doing with putting stickers on tits>>
