Please help. I need some bum-coverers, either tops or dresses with long sleeves. I like jersey material, i'm 5'11, 34 yo, size 16/18. Not keen on black, white, beige, cream but open to other colours.

Any links appreciated!

try White stuff, they always do long tunic dresses, also try layering..longer tshirt and shorter over it.

Agree with earlier posters. I buy from White Stuff, Joules and Sea Salt. the latter are great quality and very reasonably priced. I find Fat Face a bit stingy on the length!

Lots of jumper dresses in Asda if you want cheaper like -me-

i'm 6ft & buy 'tops' from H&M ...they are actually sold as dresses (t-shirt material, long & short sleeves) They cover my bum. HTH

I have a few of these in various colours. They are really flattering and look lovely on. I am usually an 8 but buy these in a 10 as they are quite slim fitting. They're nice with jeans

I got the joules catalogue yesterday and they have some nice tops to go over leggings and so do white stuff.

Have done serious damage to the credit card, got a selection coming from sea salt, joules & white stuff. Never would have thought of looking in these shops so have 'new discovery' excitement!

Thank you all!
