I'm looking for cotton sleeveless tops - not tshirt material. Has anyone seen any please? Looking for something cool for holidays. Thanks

I'm wearing a sleeveless one from Gap that I bought recently. I though it was cotton but it's actually linen. I'm sure the had lots of others like that at the time though which are cotton.

Mango have got some made of actual cotton (a rarity. I am sick of seeing rails full of bloody polyester and viscose). I just ordered this one:

I got a bit grumpy in Monsoon last week when I saw what looked like a nice sleeveless summer top in pale pink cotton. On closer inspection it was only 35% cotton and the rest was viscose. I crumpled it in my hand and it instantly looked like a dishrag. Do shops think that we're stupid? They wanted £35 for it...don't tell me that you couldn't make a top from 100% cotton at that price. Feels like they are taking the mick. Notice that men are never offered the same crap fabrics!

Sainsburys are quite good for 100% cotton, e.g.

Sure I saw these in Jaeger and their Outlet recently.

Thank you!

The TU pin tick top is what I'm looking for.

I didn't realise I could order from them online. Does anyone know how their sizes are true to size please? I all shops did a standard sizing! My husband can't work out why I can't just pick a size and know it will fit me! hmm

I think TU clothing tends to be on the large side.
