I want a fabulous white shirt

(18 Posts)

Recommendations please. The wish list:

- absolutely must not be transparent
- nicely and flatteringly cut for my hourglassy figure
- crisp and holds shape well (some stretch is fine)
- funky design features welcome - doesn't have to be a classic white shirt.
- easy to iron a bonus.

Budget stretchable for something worth it. Where do I look? For reference, I'm early 30s and a short size 8 overall.

Watching with interest!

Me too!
Can't find one though, hoping someone will be more useful and help all of us

I have quite a big bust and nearly always have to wear a camisole underneath shirts too - annoying

T M Lewin. Any shirtmaker that does traditional men's shirts and a range for women too.

Also Charles Tyrwhitt have a women's range.

Interesting. Are the above makes cut for the feminine of figure?

I've been contemplating buying a cos shirt but am unsure about whether they pass the transparency test.

I have some lovely cos shirts but the are utter buggers to iron. It doesn't stop me wearing them though!

I got a good one in bravissimo. They do them for larger busts but still with a good waist.

Anything on Jaeger

I can tell you they wash and iron like a dream 🙂

TKMaxx usually have a few nice ones in. I have a lovely fitted stretch one from there, can't remember the make off hand. I have a long body, so getting fitted shirts to fit nicely is the bane of my life.

I got a nice one from Gap . It's textured and I really like it.
I'm pretty booby and it looks nice

I love Ralph Lauren white shirts, they wash and wear brilliantly. I have a few with lovely details on the front but most of the ones online seem quite plain at the moment, maybe sold out in the sales?

Have a look at the OUTNET (there's a lovely Chloe one down to £100 that I can't manage to post link to) or Bloomingdales website for a few ideas if you're not finding much inspiration from regular sites as well, some lovely stuff and on sale too.

Banana republic or Jaegar is where I usually get white shirts from

I have a Massimo Dutti one

This one's lovely for an hourglass shape...not cheap, but it is on sale

You need Anne Fontaine

Expensive but worth it and there's an outlet at Bicester if you're ever in that neck of the woods.

I thought I was fairly open on budget but WHOA Anne Fontaine does some lovely looking but EXPENSIVE white shirts...
