Thin, floaty, long-sleeved kaftan/tunic that doesn't make me look pregnant - where from?
Been googling and drawn a blank but I am useless at clothes shopping.
I'm not allowed out in the sun without being fully covered (just had chemo so burn in a flash) and hate being too hot. Today I'm wearing a long-sleeved cotton shirt over a vest and I'm too hot, and it is only 21degrees. So thin fabric is key (will wear a vest top under it).
Boden have one that is ok but only ok. Nothing suitable from John Lewis, White Co, White Stuff.
Has anyone spotted anything anywhere else. Has to be online.
Think problems will be finding one that DOES fully cover you (as most seem to be capped of midi sleeves); that isn't uber sheer as whilst vest under just a top would work, that wouldn't be a kaftan that would be light & cool everywhere... but those that WOULD fully cover you do seem to be of the beachy/see-through kind.
Found THIS ONE that looks nice - and is only £20 iirc but my best tip would be to look at the kaftan and then look to the left of screen where TKMaxx has their 'sort' results boxes. As then you have a list of c.20 of what you KNOW are kaftan brands/designers and can then google each of THOSE - will be a lot more specific in terms of searching and hopefully yield some good finds.
