I cannot stand synthetic materials, particularly polyester. I was just wondering if anyone knew where to find nice cotton tops and dresses in larger sizes?

Thank you!

M&S have nice summery cotton bits in or Simply Be

Does it need to be cotton specifically? Loads of nice linen about at next/M&S/uniqlo. I also got a couple of nice cotton/elastane tops in oasis.

H&M . Lots of cotton tops and blouses. Also linen if you like it.

Thanks Newcupcake I will have a look at M&S. SimplyBe tend to do synthetic fabrics but I'll have another look for cotton.

Thanks ilovecherries, I do love Oasis so will have a look there too- I prefer cotton because I find synthetic tops prickly on my skin and I tend to sweat in them!

Thanks Teta, I'll take a look!

I got some lovely linen tops in M&S and M&Co. At 50 my skin isn't wild about synthetics anymore 😂

I bought some 100% cotton t shirts in Peacocks £4 each

Search for lagenlook on eBay and you’ll find lots of cotton and linen tops and dresses. They tend to be pretend voluminous so no good if it’s not a style you like

I regularly search for similar! I’m a 16 so not sure if all of following do 18 as well, but this is where my clothes are from: Zara, sea salt, H&M, silkfred, people tree, white stuff, boden, howies, bam clothing. Also odd surprise thing from primark
