Drapey, silky t-shirt blouse for ludicrous bosoms

I am looking for a drapey, silky t-shirt style blouse. No buttons or fastenings as they inevitably gape . I'm a size 18 everywhere but my chest, and generally need a 20-22 on top. The Boden v-neck Ravello looked PERFECT but the biggest size of 22 is tight over my boobs. Please has anyone seen anything anywhere else? Darker colours preferred but bosomy beggars cannot always be choosers.

Hopeful bump...

I had the same problem with the v beck ravello - looked perfect on hanger but pulled terribly. I'm a 36k and need a 22 for the same reasons. However, Boden accidentally sent the round neck version instead of the V in one of the colours, and the round neck is perfect. It's not very high necked, and because it's quite big on me everywhere else, it actually sits quite low - more like a high scoop neck, I guess. I now wear them all the time.

Although I do still regret that the V didn't work, as I was so happy when Boden started to do them!

Really, cherries? This is excellent news. I had assumed that the round neck would give me a monobosom but I will order one to try.

Thank you!

Mint velvet?

Yep, I don't know why it works, and I would never have thought to try it. I tend to wear a longish pendant with them to give some division of the chest as well.

I am a very similar size to you Angelica, and really struggle to get tops that fit ok across the bust without being like tents! I have a couple of tops from Next and last year's Mantaray from Debenhams, but can't find links for them.

I have just bought these tops. Any good for you?

Okay - my links didn't work!

These are the item numbers:

Mint velvet - tried the Dakota tie front (white with a black print). Very flattering on. Sizes large.
