I know nailpolish was asking about the topshop mongolian gilet a while back and i've become a little fixated on them.

But i'm 5ft fairly slimmish but with big bf boobs - will i look a total twonk in one?

Oh and i'm 36.

Would sheepskin like this this be better but obviously at a lot less money.

Or should i just leave it to tall people?

I think they only look right on tall willowy people. There is a mum at my dd's school who would look fantastic in one, I on the other hand would look like an overstuffed gorilla.

I am 5" 4 and large of norkage.

I keep tyring them on and thinking 'nope'.

I wish I could, but I feel huge in one (I'm not huge but boobs are largish)

Thats what i'm worried about - i tried on one of the kate moss ones in topshop and yes - overstuffed gorilla is how i looked.

Being short is such a pita sometimes.

Yes, being a French Stick would be easier than being a pita grin
