Under shirts

I'm looking for tops, clingy lycra types with long sleeves to wear as a base layer under other things so like a vest but with sleeves. M&S used to do them, but now seems to only do thermal ones that are more expensive. Black or dark grey would be good.
Any ideas for cheap ones, but not cotton?

I haven't checked lately, but usually Primark is full of them.

Which section ZaZa. I haven't seen any in the underwear section. I suppose they're somewhere in ladieswear?

No Uniqlo where I live. I'm looking for some that I can get from a shop and that are not too expensive.

Matalan or I have some from Asda

There's a Matalan not too far away. I can try there, thanks.

Primark ladieswear. Check the labels, as a few are 100% cotton, but most are a poly/cotton mix and quite warm.

I'm looking for clingy lycra-type things that will stay close to the skin and keep me warm. I don't like cotton tops.

H&M do what you are looking for.

I think maybe Primark are just doing cotton ones now, they were stretchy poly stuff when I bought them a couple of years age - sorry.

I like the Oasis version. They are a bit more pricey but last really well.

Sainsbury's do some in the thermal section

H and M sounds like the place to go.
