I need some new ones - any links please?!

The nicest I've seen for a while are these by Me and Em. They're long, the ruching is very flattering and the white is a proper white not cream or beige.

Joules Harbour tops are good if you want a thick cotton type Breton - can usually get them cheaper on eBay or via country type outdoor shops online

I like the me & em tops - £££ but they wash well and stay new looking. Good as a soft Breton layer with decent long sleeves (if you are tall!)

White stuff do some different colour combos

Imo boden Bretons are now v thin fabric so only worth it if Johnnie has graced you with a £10 gift voucher and 20% off!

Uniqlo did an amazing Breton last year.

I bought one from Joules last week and it's lovely. Nice thick cotton and decent sizing.

Muji has some lovely very sturdy ones, including ones with stripes in a very pretty shade of blue. Slightly shorter in the body than I needed though - I was gutted.

Seasalt have t shirts in lots of colours. They are lovely organic cotton, soft and wash well.

Problem is my wardrobe is coming down with Boden and there aren't really any new styles or colours. Ordered a top from Joules a wile back and it was shapeless on me. Returned a Jigsaw top simply cos I thought it was over priced at £39. Will have a good look later when I have more time.

I love the Boden long line ones but yes, they are very thin, but I dislike the Joules ones because they're too thick for me.

Careful with the Me & Em ones. Very short in the body for me - though I am 5'9"!

I would send SeaSalt Bretons. Lovely and soft, and very flattering.

The Boden long-line Bretons are good for summer - they are very thin tshirt material. I have just bought a St James Breton top, it looks fab and is more like a thin jumper, they are meant to be more traditional type Bretons.

I have a really nice thick organic cotton one from h and m. Not sure if they still sell them though

Tartyflette Mon 30-May-16 15:28:54

I second the seasalt ones, good quality and not too bad for price if you wait for a special offer. (I got a decent discount offer via their emails)

Is it better to have a skinny stripe Breton if you don't want to look panoramic in it?

Dozer Mon 30-May-16 15:55:26

£48 is overpriced IMO!

Mrsmaudwatts Fri 03-Jun-16 21:02:59

This is lovely, very forgiving, but size down!

fiorentina Fri 03-Jun-16 21:24:29

I have several from Cos. Wash well and are good quality.

Joules Harbour tops, I've got a couple of them, and live in them as much as I can. Good and thick quality cotton, flattering fit, not tight, not too loose.

Jubaloo442 Fri 03-Jun-16 21:50:22

Stylist magazine's fb page had a link to good Breton tops. Today perhaps?

Oh must google that - thank you. Still haven't ordered anything (need a whole new summer wardrobe) but have Me & Em website open as there's one I like there.
