Jumper necklines that flatter...

... a short-waisted hourglass size 16 - ie me! I am quite busty and also have quite broad shoulders so over the years I have had to say no to boat necks, crew necks, polo necks and I am getting SO BORED of v-necks. Loose cowl necks are OK as long as they are quite small ones that don't hang down too low. Please inspire me if you are a similar shape or just really good at styling other people!

I wear a lot of cardigans... longer length ones, boyfriend style. Fine knit and clean edges, no waterfall rubbish. Add a plain v neck teeshirt underneath and some nice jewellery nestling in your cleavage and voila!

I am size 14 at the moment and a square shouldered 5ft 3in.I never wear v necks but go for the grandad t-shirt shape with small buttons and cowl necks.I do wear the low cut cowl necks with a vest top underneath.I also wear wrap type tops and round-necked tunics with leggings and a long pendant necklace to distract from my shoulders.M&S have cowl necked tops at the moment in pima cotton and modal that are really nice on and an indigo blue grandad top.I also find that i suit flowing cardigans better - they make me look less square.Waterfall cardigans are out, but TK Maxx have cashmere fluted-front long cardigans that are really nice on.
