the trous are quite wide of leg so it would be nice to wear something that gives me a shape on top. Maybe a print, and def a pretty colour. I quite like dusky blues and greens (not really the brights that are around at the mo, unfortunately)

But don't want anything clingy - that will just give my ma ammunition re my needing to do some sit-ups.. and besides, if it is hot it'll be nice to have something that allows a certain amount of air circulation don't want big old sweat patches

What size are you Spink? And are you large or small of nork?

JackieNo Sat 11-Aug-07 11:59:36

There's this in the green, or possibly the blue, but limited sizes.

JackieNo Sat 11-Aug-07 12:01:14

If you're small of nork, maybe this, though I think you want something more fitted. Nice colours, though.

More information needed! What size are you?

JackieNo Sat 11-Aug-07 12:02:19

Is this too plain?

JackieNo Sat 11-Aug-07 12:07:24

Hmm - possibly? Might be too yellow in rl.

JackieNo Sat 11-Aug-07 12:11:24

Again, a possibility?
I like ths shape of this one.
SMock top - could be dangerously unflattering, or might work, you'd have to try it on.
Same with this one.

ooh I like those last 2 smock tops. I'm a size 12-14, and norks are 36c/d depending on whetrher i've just fed the boy.
not too keen on the tops with the geometric type prints. Think something that goes in under boobies might be most flattering...

I found this site while I was looking for anything online that sold things made with fabrics from a company called La fiancée du Mekong (I have a dressing gown from them and it is so beautiful).

Spink Sat 11-Aug-07 13:27:24

I like the prints but think the shapes might be a bit too flowy with wide-legged trousers?

JackieNo Sat 11-Aug-07 13:39:10

Might also be worth a trip to somewhere like Monsoon, to see what they've got in the sale.

I wore wide leg white linen trousers to a friend's wedding last summer when it was scorching hot and I was 4 months pregnant and clothes just starting to feel tight.

I wore a petrol-blue top in a crinkly, silky material from Jigsaw with it - might be worth checking there? Wore it with the same colour beads and sparkly sandals. Was very glad to go for the cool side in the end as I watched all the men sweat in their heavy suits eating a lamb dinner in a stuffy hotel with no air-con.

Guitargirl, that sounds lovely. Went to Jigsaw yesterday and they had some lovely silky tops but in reds and whites and blacks, not really colours that suit me.. mmm petrol blue
