Jumper dresses for the short and booby of stature?

I really like the roll neck, slightly baggy jumper dresses I've seen on ASOS this week but I'm wondering if the style and beauty gurus can tell me whether it's a definite no for me given I'm 5'4, a generous 12 and heavy up top.

Any other suggestions for cozy winter dresses that could be worn with boots?

I think you need to be taller and flat chested! V neck jumper dress would work?

Agree that v neck would be your best option. I’m looking for something similar as I think they would be very cosy & comfy for home wear but look presentable for leaving the house too.

I’m. 5’3” a hippy 12 with an F cup chest. I’ve got a few espirit crew neck ones and they wear and wash well.

I like this one from this year

Would you get away with a boatneck as a halfway house between roll and v-neck?

There's this at Uniqlo.

They have wide [[https://www.uniqlo.com/uk/en/product/women-souffle-yarn-off-turtleneck-long-sleeved-dress-433582.html?dwvar_433582_color=COL12&dwvar_433582_size=SMA001&cgid=IDknit1282&hassubcat=false turtle] necks too that might be a bit more forgiving than a standard one (disclaimer: I'm an ironing board so have no idea, but I love Uniqlo knitted dresses...)

I have a few batwing style jumper dresses similar to this
I’m 5’4” currently 12
The slouchy neckline is quite flattering
I bought a black one from all saints and have navy and plum from phase eight

The ones I’ve got have a slouchy cowl neckline

This is the neckline I meant
