Boden has some nice ones - wool and jersey - but I can't wait 10 weeks. I just want something simple, ideally in wool or jersey, slightly fitted (am a size 14 with some bulges - v neck is good, as is a wrap type affair). Something that will wash needs long sleeves (or some sleeves, at the very least). I also have a shoe question, but will post that separately...

Not long sleeves, but wrap effect?
Also short sleeves (sorry)
Long sleeves
Not v-neck, but might work?
Wrap style

Bit pricey, but love the detail at the front
Probably a bit dressier than you were after, but lovely

Definitely a bit unusual

Jackie, I worship at the altar of your black dress finding. The first Debenhams one would be perfect with a cardigan and the Laura Ashley one with long sleeves is just what I'm after. Am going to try the Coast one too. One or the other of them will be perfect...thank you so much, you've saved me an eternity of schlepping round shops next weekend.
