What's your budget?

Sleeveless or sleeved?

I have a similar problem... I am also 5ft 1 and find it difficult when it comes to shopping for clothes.

I was just about to employ an image consultant to learn the general tricks and rules to shopping though instead I filled out my details on this website called the image mistress. It's kinda like an online stylist that will tell you your body shape and then links you to clothing that will suit... it is a free resource and 2 of the tops the site recommended I purchased, looked pretty good! smile

Either that or you could go to John Lewis or some of the bigger department stores where you can book a free image consultant?

Happy Hunting
