Plain loose fitting tops? Where do I find them?

I'm after a couple of plain tops, not too short and with short sleeves (or 3/4 length sleeves) for work. I need ones that skim, not cling because of my stomach. Can anyone recommend any please? I've tried a number of places online but I can't seem to find any.

H&M are quite good for basics, but only their cotton stuff.

Zara would be my suggestion, the basics range.

Try Mary Portas. They look odd on the hanger but really good on the body.

Pricy but they wash and wear well.

There's a sale on at House of Fraser - free delivery and returns.

Thanks everyone. I think H&M might be a winner, seem to have quite a few in the basics section on the website. Will pop in store on Sat.

Zara, Mango and Esprit.
