Long sleeved plain tops for layering in age 3-4, where can I find them

DD wears dresses layered with tops most of the time. I have just noticed that her sleeves are getting a bit short so I need to find more. The nicest ones she has at the moment are Next and Gap (very soft). Next don't seem to have any at the moment and Gap has one colour only. H&M have the mysterious 2-4 size. I am after red, navy, pink, white and cream, plain or possibly striped Any ideas where else I could try?

H&M always have loads in store. Theirs are best imo as they stretch and wash well. M&S do them sometimes.

Thanks. Are the H&M ones really size 2-4 as it says on their website? Do they come up as big as 3-4 in other stores?

Primark are quite good for plain tops.

H&m ha e the colours you are after, I agree the sizes are odd 2-4 and then its 4-6. I find the age 2-4 tops fairly generous. 4-6 are huge.

Tesco and sainsburys also do plain tops.

My 2.7 yo DD wears h&m size 2-4 tops - they are a bit long on the arms but not by that much; I'd say they are in between a size 2-3 and a size 3-4 in eg Next sizing.

Quite plain. I always buy these and they're ok.

I buy a lot of tops for my DC from H&M, they are excellent quality. In terms of sizing, they are quite true to size so 2-4 tops are big for 2 year olds and verging on small for 4 year olds so depending on how old/big your DD is, you might want to get 4-6. They last forever without looking tatty smile

DD is 2.5 but going into 3-4 clothes as she is big for her age, so H&M 2-4 might be about right.

M&S long sleeved vests?

Tillyscoutsmum Wed 17-Apr-13 21:44:30

H&M 2-4 should be fine. I've also bought boys tops from there for dd as they seem to have more primary colours

Boden pointelle tops are great quality & very soft

JumpJockey Wed 17-Apr-13 21:49:57

Boots often do multi- packs that are pretty long lasting. Something like this although it says out of stock at the moment. They're good quality and have stretchy necks unlike a lot of tops we have from other places.

There is a code which would give 20% off this price too I think plus free delivery

Another vote for H&M here.

H and M or Zara.

Another vote for Boden pointelle tops, they are gorgeous and not expensive with a code.

Zara Kids surprisingly good value - they have a Basics range which often has nice colours, and good quality too.
