Help me! Oh gurus of Style!

I need a shirt!

I need a shirt for my graduation at the end of June. I don't own a collared shirt - which it needs to be to hold my gown in place!

I CANNOT find one that fits or meets my - rather picky - specs!

Oh help me - gurus of style!

I'm 16/18 and rather large of bust!
I don't do white or boob pockets (what are they all about!)

I don't have a lot to spent so none of your designer stuff - more along the lines of phase eight, coast, Wallis type price range.

Can anyone help!

What colour would you like?

navy here they have a couple of others.

TBH if you want closely fitted it's usually best to get one that fits the frontage and have it altered to fit at the waist. Otherwise the M&S no gape ones might be worth a look.

Does it have to be a shirt? I wore a dress. Is that an option?

Scotslass - I suppose it doesn't have to be a shirt but it needs to have something to hold my gown too.

It's not my first graduation, but first for a long time.

Kirrie - I've looked at pepperberry, not terribly inspired.
There's one close to work so I might pop in and try one on

I wore a dress and took a safety pin to my graduation, but the gowns had been designed so they could be attached to any clothing.

I'm not sure if you have a specific colour in mind, but I've just bought this one and it's a lovely fit (I have large boobs and often find shirts ill fitting because of this). Also it's decent price at just £15

Agreed that you don't need a shirt. I have to wear the gown every year and you just need safety pins, one on each shoulder and one at the front where the buttonhole is. I've never worn a shirt.
Wear something non flouncy underneath with fabulous shoes.

M&S - cheap as chips. I bought a bright blue no gape one.
