I am large of nork, and would like something v neck, loose, but fitted round the hips?? With sleeves, and preferably a fine knit, or silky, but not jersey! Does this exist? I realise this is a big ask grin
I would also like to spend the least amount of money possible confused

Please excuse the random capital T that appeared!

Anybody, please? smile

I saw these tops linked on another thread and thought they looked very handy. Any good?

Thanks for replying, the neck's a bit high sad I may end up looking like a box! V or scoop works better for me.

I have this in a deep green colour that I wear tucked in with a pencil skirt

I got this top at primark last year for £6 ish.
it's fitted with a loose fine mesh layer on the front.
Goes really well with a pencil skirt.
they may still have it or something similar.

Oops forgot the picture...

Might any of these suit? They don't exactly fit the criteria but are designed for larger busted ladies.

Last one.

Some of the bat wing knits might work, I saw some lovely ones in Phase Eight before Christmas but can't see them online,default,pd.html
This is the style, maybe without the fussy arm thing!

Phase eight again,default,pd.html

I saw this top in Next recently, didn't try it on but looked good.

I bought a top the same style as this (mines burgundy but the same shape etc) from Coast last winter. It's incredibly flattering on my ridiculous 30j bust and looks good with trousers or skirts.

I love the phase eight one, the second one, that's exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks GVmama! And the next one looks quite food, but may be a but boxy still?
Thanks for looking heaven but I really want something with sleeves and loose, but tight round the hips. smile

My sister is large of nork, and that's her 'go to' style of top, it'll look great smile
