Oh, i can't do vests.
Not just the bingo wings, but a tee shirt suntan in my case.

you'd be better off in a cotton blouse to be cooler. Vests are basically knitted fabric next to your skin. And they look crap.

<wanders off to remove vest and don something more attractive instead>

I got a surprisingly nice one from Hawkeshead of all places.

nickytwotimes Sun 27-Jul-08 21:00:13

even with my tan line?
It's very, um, pronounced.

Surpisingly I got some great ones from Ethel Austins!

They are really soft, wash fantastically and go down past my hips, £3 in sale.

With nice few buttons at top so can show a bit of cleavage if necessary!

Tesco do great fitting longer length ones.
Also have some Matalan ones that are fine and wash well.
Next,marks,Boden,all shrank.
White ones need replacing every summer.

Saw a very large older lady last week in spagetti strapped vest.Her skin was wrinkled like old leather,had obv had one too many foreign holiday.Breats needed restraining also.

depends on person. i have reasonable arms but look utterly vile in a vest, solid body and giant swimmer shoulders. whereas much larger people i have seen today looked really good in theirs.

(i have been to a 1660 war reenactment today so pretty much everyone looked good compared to sweaty woolly people)

this kind of thing (vaguely) acceptable as an alternatrive

fishie Sun 27-Jul-08 21:51:05

not in french supermarche?

SilentTerror Sun 27-Jul-08 21:51:08

Both; I prefer plain tbh,but the ribbed ones are a thin rib with low scoop neck and long.
iirc,white,black,turquoise,sea green(ribbed,that one)deep pink,red,navy.
Got a fab one from Topshop a few years ago in a dark grey/smoke colour.

I think vests are very flattering - I love em.
