There was a thread recently about tops to wear with skinnies and this was linked to, which is exactly the type of top I am looking for! However, have just had DS2 and am breastfeeding. It is made of linen, so if I pull it up to feed (will wear a vest underneath and pull down), will it crease like mad or totally lose its shape? Not really sure about the "linen-ness" of it, but the shape and colour is exactly what I am looking for.

Also, am a sz12 - can anyone recommend whether I should order a M or L in size please? I haven't ordered from Zara before.

If it is the wrong type of material for wearing when breastfeeding, could anyone link to some tops that are similar please?

Thanks for your advice!

OOh I like that! Am size 16-18 tho, can anyone tell me if I'll be able to get one to fit? Hate S M L XL sizing, can vary so much! Thanks for the link wicked

I'm also interested in the creasing issue. The scoop-necked shape is perfect and the color range is good, but every linen garment I've ever had has creased like crazy.

I have some mercerized cotton tops that are similar and perfect, but high-caliber cotton is next to impossible find these days...

Oh fab tops. I'd be interested in sizing too. Am guessing m would be fine as they look loosish. I am pretty sure does my bum look 40 is impressed with the short sleeve version of these so would imagine the creasing isn't too bad.

Hi, it was me that recommended them. I am bf'ing too, and find that although they do crease a little, it's nothing like you would expect from linen normally. They are softer and more fluid-feeling than other linen items I have, not sure what they have done differently, but they do feel more like a knit than anything.

I am a 12/14 top, depending on where I am shopping, and find that the L is nice and roomy over a fitted ls jersey tee without looking shapeless, iyswim?

Am now wondering if I should go and order some more before they all sell out grin

I've got the short sleeved ones and am breastfeeding. I wear over a fitted vest.

They don't crease much, lovely fluid fabric. But they do tend to shrink in length through washing.

Thanks Casa for confirming - think I will order L!

Zwitterion - thanks for the tip - will try handwash cycle in machine - hopefully they wont shrink!

I've got this in the bright blue; its a beautiful colour. I do find it goes a bit baggy after a day's wear. I wd say i'm usually a size 14 / 36DD boobs and I got the medium, and its plenty big enough. I bought it in store but if I'd bought online I'd always go for the large, so I'd size down if you are buying online. I love it though. I've just handwashed it so far but I think you can machine wash.

Hmmm, you are same size as me then, inc bust (when not bfeeding)I should prob order M then, just in case. Just waiting to decide if I am going into town on Gues because there is a shop there, so I could try on. If not, will order online, thanks!
