Can anyone help me find some nice long sleeved tops?

I would welcome any suggestions, as I have not managed to find anything I can wear so far that does anything to make me look good. I have lymphodema in one of my arms and have to wear a compression bandage that looks like stockingnette from the 1950's, hence the need for long sleeves!

My criteria for a good top is as follows:

Quite a high neck, I have high scarring from mastectomy.
Fairly thick material to disguise the cantilever construction that supports my prosthesis.
Fairly loose fitting to 'skim' over my bust. I normally wear a size 16 or 18, but am probably closer to a 14/16.
No tight arm cuffs and definitely no elastic in the cuffs.
I can wear most colours apart from yellow and orange.
Budget up to £40

Ladies, it's over to you: smile smile

seems like a good brand for what you are after - or are those too plain?

I popped into M&S and their top are too thin unfortunately. Will investigate the others.

Thanks for your help!
