Low scoop longer length tops, not polyester?

I'm struggling to find tops I like. I suit a low scoop or large v neck, I'm size 16/18 on top. I don't like polyester because I seem to be very staticy (?) Any suggestions? Even if I find one I like, they're then very short.

I forgot to say, not white or pale colours, I'm dark haired and suit bright colours.

I think it is the not polyester that is the problem.

I like Seasalt, they are usually natural fabrics, and they do have plain coloured tops as well as prints, but I am not sure about the necklines.

This website has old stock of Seasalt and Fat Face quite a lot cheaper and a few plain colours www.louisescloset.com/tops-tunics

I have some lovely scooop neck tops from Hobbs that are also double layered at the front which mean you can wear any bra under them not just a smooth one. They are 100% cotton.

Try Rapanui. They have lots of organic cotton 'basics'. I've got a T-shirt from there and my husband has a few and they're really nice. Lovely quality and they don't do that annoying twisty thing when they've been washed.

The 3/4 length t-shirt from Rapanui is great (has low scoop), 100% cotton, and they have multi-buy offers.

Seconding Jigsaw, I’m generous of nork and a similar size and their scoop neck tops (double layers) are one of the only ones I can wear without a vest underneath.

Try Long Tall Sally.. I often buy from them as although 5'6, I am large of boob and long in the body sostruggle to find tees long enough
They have scoop neck tees in viscose..

They do long vest tops too and not expensive

I just sent some t-shirts back to Boden this week because they were both too scoopy and too long in the body!

UNIQLO is very good for basics. H&M conscious collection is also made of cotton.

Im in the market for this too, but having scoured the internet, everything I find that isn't polyester is either ££££££ or stiff, blocky and patterned with whimsey.

Ive just about given up.

I got a couple in Primark last week, (xl) 100% cotton, one round neck and one v neck. Some were Polyester so you have to look!

Kaykay247 Thu 14-Oct-21 18:23:05

Try Yours. Theirs are usually lovely and long!

CherryMaple Thu 14-Oct-21 18:51:04

Gap. I find their tops plenty long enough (I’m 5ft 10). I found Boden too short.

Baukjen are always long.

Onthegrid Thu 14-Oct-21 21:17:56

I have the landsends ones I wouldn’t say they were long, I’m 5’8 with my length even between my legs and body.
Whilst that design is not short in that there is no gap to my trousers they are only just below the waist (top of back pocket) length.
