Work jackets for size 32G busted lady?? Single breasted surely?
Hi, returning to work soon after 15 months off, professional environment, am client facing 90% of the time, am size 12/14 top, size 14 bottom, 5'5" (but always wear heels -makes a difference!). Have just tried on couple of my old jackets (some are suit jackets, others just jackets) and they just dont look right?! They still fit, they are all single breasted (was 34DD before baby, am still same dress size as before). Some are cropped jackets, others bit longer, from various stores eg M&S, Warehouse, Reiss so dont know what the problem is?
Anyway, any suggestions for some nice work jackets that I can mix with skirts and trousers? Am I right in looking at single breasted jackets (I never do buttons up anyway but my current ones still look daft with them open. Dont want to spend lots and lots but if it is something that is versatile and looks good then willing to spend ££.
I bought a gorgeous navy blazer in Sisley this summer, fits my 32f chest perfectly - is single breasted with 3 buttons but the buttons are low so skim boobs in a v flattering way. Also cut is very neat and slim so you can size up to fit chest without losing the shape of the blazer. I know they are doing on the same blazer for aw but can't help with search or links right now as on phone- website is sisley.com
oh thanks all for your replies. Like the M&S stuff, might order to my local (small) store so I can try on. With the Bravissimo I will try and get to a store so I can try on a few. Really only need a couple of jackets as have lots of tops, scarves accessories that I change the look with. I do also wear long cardigans in the office, mainly because I am always cold!
