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'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.
