I've decided I'm too old for the 'bra straps on show' look and have binned all my cheap summer vests that are guilty of this look. Does anyone know where I can find some good quality vest tops that don't show your bra? I want the flowy type that look good with skinny jeans, not the tight fitting sort.

Ive got some ones from Gap with the built in support so I don't have to wear a bra.

They are Spaghetti straps tho… would prefer wider ones though really

Have a look at the linen vests in next. I'm awaiting my order from next. Also check out Oasis and Warehouse. I have some nice silk fronted style from Warehouse.

I am large of nork (36G/H) so couldn't get away with the type with inbuilt support and spaghetti straps.

The ones from Warehouse sound nice. I need a floaty bit on the front to cover my mummy tummy sad

White Stuff have lovely vests, with wider shoulder straps that don't cling.

Boden had some with wide straps last year in a variety of colours and they still had some in the clearance section.

I bought some Gap ones but they are rubbish, no support and I ended up with a bra underneath anyhow which defeated the purpose of it.

My 16y just lives in strapless bras.
Clearly not a good solution for everyone.

Another vote for Uniqlo, both the ones with and without the lace trim.

Just what I need notapizzaeater! I've never shopped on, are they good? I usually hate online shopping for clothes as they never fit right and I find queuing in the post office with littlies a faff. Do you mind linking to the ones you mean please? Thanks.
