I would like some help to find replacements! The style that suits me best is Like this ending on the hip bone and a really deep v. Balloon sleeves I like too. I have only ever managed to find one, a few years ago in Monsoon, but none there this year. Thanks for any help!

Wallis usually do some longerline ones which are v flattering

I started this same thread today.

I did enter the 'maternity' caveat though, so I had an excuse wink

I don't want a £160 cardi hmm but I don't want to look cheap either.

Wtf is a waterfall cardigan and why do you all hate them?

ggirl Sun 21-Aug-11 21:17:18

cyb Sun 21-Aug-11 21:18:08

designed for lumps

I bought a gorgeous bamboo cardigan in France a whlie ago, which is really soft. I like [ this one] from Toast. Bamboo's a good eco-friendly fibre too I think.

Sorry! Try again: Toast

Thanks for looking cookielove. I am a short, curvy hourglass with Very Large Norks, I need the V to start very low to be flattering, and the cardy to end about my hip bone. Long boyfriend cardigans look awful on me unfortunately.

Gap always has cardies like these, ususally in lovely merino wool blends.

have to say i tried a WF cardy on last week....they made me look huge! and i really dont need that kind of help - i can look huge all by myself!

cyb Sun 21-Aug-11 21:37:01

Vicar they make everyone look huge! Like maxi dresses

the 'galleon in full sail' look

mumtoted Sun 21-Aug-11 21:38:15

I know the feeling VicarInaTutu. I realised how awful they were when I saw several other people wearing the same M&S one I had, and hated it!
Thanks Beehive, off to have a look at Gap.

If you want cheap and cheerful - I bought this in cream. I hate synthetic materials so was really pleased to find this was 95% cotton and snapped it up. Flattering too.

Boden, M and S cashmere - and Wrap have some lovely cardis, but are pricy.

Btw, do agree with you and all the rest of the anti waterfall brigade - bound to make those of us who are large look huge, and have rarely seen one that didn't look frumpy on any size.

I like these, but they maybe too waterfall for some! I think they both looked good done up, and probably better on.

Actually, I thought of you today OP. If you want very cheap, tesco had some in with a very deep 'v'. Definitely deeper than usual. Not sure of exact length but about hip length I'd say.
