I am between a 14/16 34FF not very confident in the way my body looks, fairly broad shoulders.

I need a smart work blouse that's easy to wash and looks quite 'corporate' I am so fed up of trying to hide myself under clothes I look like crap and really need to smarten up.

Suggestions welcome, thank you

For smart and corporate, you can't go wrong with a simple shirt. But with FF's, you need to get them from a boob-friendly place. I have several from here, I dinf the quality better than Pepperberry:
Would something like that work for you?

There's also a russian company who does a little bit more interesting colours - but they tend to shrink in wash, so I would recommend sizing up.

I brought a couple of shirts from GAP in the 'boyfriend' fit. Worth a try?

I'd rather not have anything too form fitting bit difficult to look out together with a billowy shirt though!

I've just bought this for a size 22 friend. It's gorgeous and really flattering. Do not be put off by it being from Asda - it could honestly be from Hobbs or Whistles. I find lots of Asda blouses are like this.,default,pd.html

I usually wear plain T-shirt type tops and wear a jacket if cold or a scarf. I get quite warm and hate sweaty shirts!

I got some lovely boden in a sale - if you keep your eyes open for them plus discount codes etc. Lots of the shirtmakers do 3 for £xx at the moment - ie tm lewins.

M&S do shirts and blouses for the fuller bust. The plain white shirt with no gape technology works well under a jacket or cardigan and isn't too pricy.

I love the shirt company - I think it's the pascale shirt that's my favourite. It has plenty of stretch in it to accommodate bigger boobs.
