Breton top for a booby size 16? Does such a thing exist?

I'm 5'4, size 16 and a 36F.

I would love to be able to wear a Breton top but whenever I've tried one on I look like horribly lumpy and squat.

Has anybody any thoughts/ suggestions/ advice, please, or do I have to stick to v-neck tunics?

Many thanks xx

I'm 5'5", a size 14-16 and think I'm a 32GG (waiting on my bravissimo exchange to arrive to discover actual size!). I LOVE Bretons! I buy mine from Boden mainly, I love the longer-length ones best. Try one, I bet you will be pleasantly surprised

Uniqlo, Joules, Seasalt. I'm a similar size but taller,and wear Bretons a lot!

They have them at Pepperberry.

The Joules one is v generous. Warm too!

Thank you so much for all these kind replies!

I've just ordered the long Breton from Boden and will look at these other shops too and order a few more to compare.

Thank you so much! xx

I'm exactly the same dress size and bra size as you, though 5'3" and I love the Boden ones. I did have to size up to an 18 though so they weren't too fitted but they also tend to stretch a bit as you wear them.

Same size as you but 36D, I have the Boden one and I love it

I think it's the right bra rather than the right Breton!

Isn't this both horizontal stripes and a slash neck? Both no nos for big boobs! Personally I wouldn't but each to their own. 😀
