Can you link to the previous thread? I hate shopping. I need high street suggestions so I can grit my teeth & not faff around wondering if online purchase will fit well and get this over with. Must be full long sleeves, not too deep a neckline, I'm looking for warmth.
I had a look at Uniqlo, Boden & Kettlewell sites. Their regular tops aren't long enough & the "tunics" aren't close fitting enough for my liking. Or they only come in Plaid (Kettlewell), or with twee collars (Boden), or don't state what the material is. Basically, I want something warm and mostly cotton (not acrylic) but not heavy like a jumper!
Gap & H&M don't seem to have any tunics in their online shops.
I will double check in Gap shop itself, but I have a feeling that their guidance "hits just below the hips" will still be a few inches above my hips (long waist). Especially after it's been washed a few times & shrinks.
I just looked at Lands End online but can't find anything that looks right. Can you please humour my ineptness and give a link, JellyMould?
Plopsicle Can you tell me the measurement from shoulder to hem of your shirt in cm, what size did you buy? I'm finding the Oasis site a devil, I type in "long sleeve" and it comes up with 1/2 sleeve items.
