Sweet Jesus of Nazareth, after spending most of my adult life searching for the perfect vest I finally have it in my possession!
It doesn't sound much does it? I mean, how hard can it be to find a great vest? Impossible I tell you, it's impossible.
They are either one or all of the following:
Too short
Too long
Cut too high on the neck, very unflattering.
Cut too low in the neck = tits on toast
Fabric too thick, adds bulk and is unlattering
Too flimsy
Cut too low or high under the arm = arm flab is a friend to nobody.
Deigned so it's impossible to wear a bra underneath (racer back in looking at you) or designed so your bra is in show.

This vest of wonder is none of these! It's a beauty, so well cut, fits beautifully, is tres flattering so I bought 6.
Best of all it was £4 from H&M......£4!!!!!!!

Oooh, I have similar vest issues, especially the too bloody short bit, and I love me some H&M. Do they have it on the website do you know?

Not sure nab, I bought it in store, I never use the H&M website, delivery is so bloody slow I swear they send it by rowing boat.

Agreed! I just wanted to know which was the magical vest! I will check them out when next in store. Love "tits on toast" by the way grin

Agreed. They do by far the best vests. I like the ribbed ones in a size bigger than I normally am because there's nothing worse than a gut/love handles hanging out of the bottom. H&M vests last too - I've got drawers of 'em and some have gone on for years.

They've sorted out the delivery problems now. Usually delivered within 2-3 days. I'm impressed, and that doesn't happen often!

Oh good skippy, haven't used them online for over a year, stuff was taking 2 weeks to arrive!

I agree! I've tried vests from everywhere possible. My fav used to be Primark before I discovered H&M, just like OP says, brill!

Yes, H&M vests are indeed the holy grail of vests! It used to be Topshop, but the quality dipped and the prices went up simultaneously a few years back angry.

I discovered H&M vests this when up-duffed - their maternity vests are THE best.

I then got the non-maternity vests and they're great. They wash really well, too.
I have some that are 3 years old and still going strong.

How do they come up size wise? XS is 6-8, S is 10-12, I am an 8 but with big boobs as still breastfeeding....

Marthacliffscumbag Mon 16-May-16 18:26:45

Well I'm a size 8-10, 34d boobs and I got the small which fits perfectly.

This is very good to know, thanks. Good vests are hard to find!

I've been raving about H&M vests on here forever. I love the longer cotton ones, with adjustable spaghetti straps.

The perfect White t shirt is next on my list......
