Does this even exist?!

I don't think I'm asking too much!

I'm looking for jersey 3/4 length sleeve tops with a scoop neck- in block colours- red, black, navy etc

I've found an American brand that make them, but at £34 each (plus shipping and customs), I'd like to try and find a cheaper alternative if I can.

Has anyone seen anything like this or have any ideas? Oh and I'm a size 18.

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried H&M? Might not have 3/4 sleeves at the moment but they always have a selection of block coloured tops. Large fits size 18 in those.

Next have long sleeve ones as well.

Boden usually have some or M&S

I have had the same problem. Found these form Jane Norman. Not a place I would normally have gone to...
I am a good size 16 and bought the 18 thinking the brand would be skimped. It is generous, quite long in the body and a nice soft feel. The scoop is nearly as low at the back, so you need to be aware of that.
The only thing I don't like is that it has secret support, why oh why do they put secret support in a top in a size 18! No-one is going to go bra-less at that size.I have actually never understood why secret support exists.
Anyway, i think they are worth a try.

M&S I think it may be a seasonal thing, a couple of months ago every bloody t-shirt was three quarter sleeve and now they are mainly long. hmm

Lazybones77- I did see ones in H&M but they are very thin cotton- but that is the style that I'm looking for

KatharinaRosalie- thanks, those kettlewell ones are nice- thou the same price as the US ones that I found. I wouldn't have to worry about customs thou

Pestilence- boden is my usual go to, but they don't seem to have them this season, it's all long sleeves angry

BennyPoo- I would never have thought of Jane Norman, I haven't shopped there since my early twenties! That top is perfect, just what I'm looking for, wish there were more colours!

M&Co!! another place I would not have thought of

I agree Yoghurty, would be good in more colours. I would never have thought of Jane Norman in a million years but Google threw the name out at me. I bought 4 of them ( 2 for me, 2 for sis) and we both love them. If I buy again I may try the size 16 but the 18s more than do the job. I hope you get on with them!
