I have got a good breton top.

I have one from H&M that I wear all the time, it is losing it's shape because the fabric is too thin.

I would like one that is better quality, preferably not too fitted or too lose neither.

Can anyone recommend one that they like?

Many thanxx

Jack Wills Alburgh Breton top is probably my favourite

Boden, I have it in 5 colours. Also Live Joules.

I've found Boden Bretons go out of shape

I've got my eye on Petit Bateau (adult range) - meant to be good quality

I like the Boden long line ones but size down as I think they are quite generous.

Joules harbour best by miles.

I have a lot of them from different places but 3 now from joules. Better than Petite Bateau.

Boden are very thin & lose their shape very quickly, I was very disappointed with mine, if I had paid full price would have sent them back.

I have 2 from Joules. They are lush.

Embarrassed to wear them out now as everyone seems to have them. Especially at parent and toddler groups.... trys to think of ways to wear them 'differently'

Oh breton you have made me laugh with that

Petit Bateau striped tops are lovely. Not cheap, but last forever and wash really well.

Marking place!

Love Joules ones but agree with previous comments about sizing down and their ubiquity. That said I love their quality so much I still would rather wear them and risk matching someone than not wear them.

Seasalt. Though I'm trying to stop buying/wearing them so much as had definitely got into a Breton top/skinny jeans/ankle boots or trainers Mum Rut.

The oldest item of clothing I have us a real Breton top from Brittany - it's now well over 20 years old

Joules Bretons for me , I love them.

Sorry to be repetitive, but I've bought LOADS of bretons trying to find "the one", and I found it, Joules Harbour top. I love the thickness of the material, it doesn't cling, and it's fitted in just the right places. It's very reasonably priced compared to some of their clothing. I've now got it in 3 colours. They also do 3/4 sleeves and full length sleeves.
