Very lightweight thin cotton loose t shirts

I need a few of these for an upcoming Florida holiday, I wore vests the last time but I found them clingy and not very flattering.

I'm size 16 so don't want anything fitted or ribbed so it clings to every lump and bump, I'd like them to be ultra lightweight too if possible, not jersey or thick material.

I can see Zara do a basic t shirt at a brilliant price but I'm not sure whether their size large is still large enough for a 16?

I'm not looking to spend a fortune either, these will be washed and worn over and over on holiday as we have washing and drying facilities and the dryers are a bit harsh on the clothes.

Any ideas please?

Ive just bought some very lightweight cotton, non clingy, t shirts from primark. I'm not sure what size they go up to but for £2 each they were a bargain. Lots of colour choices too. They do lots of different styles- I got 'The slouchy Tee' which fits your brief.

I like the Boden ones - they do several lightweight tees with different necklines:

I find gap ones very easy to wear and hm ones are ok and lighter than the gap ones but do get a bit misshapen over time

I agree with JDSTER about the Primark slouchy tees.

Zara won't fit, I'm a 16 and their large is about a 12. Gap have some nice ones and next slub t's are nice.

Thanks all, made a trip to Primark and bought a number of the slouchy tees. I bought an 18 as I find Primark comes up a bit skimpy on the size. For the price they are fab and will probably be thrown away before we come home. The neck is a bit wide but for keeping cool around the parks and getting wet on the water rides they will be great. Thanks for the recommendation.
