I'm considering this top, as I have quite large norks, I wanted opinions please.


I'm thinking the style might not suit me as an hourglass with 34G boobs, but I love it!

It's lovely - and you would be able to wear a good supporting bra underneath, so I can't see a problem.

Thanks Life I really like it, but have history for buying things that don't suit really, I don't seem to be able to buy things for myself for some reason hmm

Oh no...I hope my 'random stranger' advice is good, and that it does suit you!

HermiioneSnape02 Fri 16-Jan-15 14:03:48

It's ok. I'm still pondering it. I haven't bought it .....yet smile

It is pretty. But,speaking as another busty hourglass,high necks can make larger boobs look shelf like. That said,sometimes it can look ok and it effects me more now I'm a 38J and overweight than when I was a slimmer hourglass!

Give it a go,it's very nice and I'm sure there will be some way to work it

See I couldn't wear that, the neckline would look too high on me and I wear a 34D, so probably slightly less norky than you. Anything similar in a shop nearby you can try on to see if the style suits you? Or maybe a friend has a top in the same style you could try on?

I'm a 36 dd and I don't think it would suit me, bit shapeless so would make me look fater

See that's what I've been thinking, the neckline is quite high with no shape, I tend to stick to v necks, but am getting a little bored of those.

Lovely top but agree the neckline probably won't work with your shape. If you are bored of v necks have you tried square neck lines as I find those a bit different but flattering.

I've tragically decided tops like that aren't for me (32G). I just look like I'm walking around with a big shiny pillow strapped to my chest with fabric billowing over it. I've got rid of a couple of similar ones. It might be I'm just too selfconscious.

I've got a couple of slash/boat neck tops but they are dark, fitted and stretchy. with the right bra they make a nice change.

It is beautiful, but I was a 32G, size 10 and hourglass shaped (pre pregnancy, now I'm just whale like) and tops like that wouldn't suit me. The high round necklines just make your breasts even larger looking, and the waistline (or lack of) adds inches and doesn't make the most of one of your best features, being hourglass. The only way I think it could possibly work, if you love it so much, is under a well fitting, single breasted jacket, that you can fasten, to create that nipped in at the waist look and slim out the greats region.

Thanks for all the advice, decided against buying it, its such a shame, I really love it!
But I am what I am. Back to the drawing board.
