Here's what I'm after. Quite high neck. Long sleeves but long to stuck out of bottom of knitwear.

H and m only have in boat neck. New look not enough Lycra to make it not look pyjama ish.

Any ideas ?

Brilliant in boat neck, scoop neck or v neck.

Love them.

Ooh. With Lycra ?

I hadn't thought of super markets

Zara always do them in various colours with plenty of Lycra too, I've got a couple that I've had years and they're still in good shape. Can't find them online at the mo ( but get confused at sale time) but they're always on a circular rail in store.

Oh that's a good idea too c and c.

Sorry, yep, with Lycra <eyes bulges under top>

It does relax a little after first wash, but still retains structure and shape nicely.

I will keep les yeux peeled

This one is lovely, I have loads of these tops in different colours and they wash brilliantly and dont need ironing. Lots of stretch.

I ordered the mango one but think the sleeves not long enough for what you want.Not here yet

noddyholder Fri 04-Jan-13 11:20:06
