suitable for autumn and very flattering then this is your baby.

It DOES look like that on!

I actually quite like that, didn't think I'd like anything from M&S. What size are you though?

LaTrucha Wed 24-Sep-08 11:40:28

14-16. I actually bought a size 12 because M+S tend to come up big on me. I actually fel about 2 stones lighter (which is what I need to lose before I am a size 12).

Really? It looks awful. What does it flatter?

MarlaSinger Wed 24-Sep-08 11:42:15

Ok your last psot has me interested. REALLY?

Her arms look weird.

LaTrucha Wed 24-Sep-08 11:44:44

Well, I liek the way it looks obviously. It flatters the waist - amazingly, and makes my breasts look in proprtion and lice, istead of like to breastfeeding exorcets.

'like' and 'two' sorry..

LaTrucha Wed 24-Sep-08 11:46:32

Jesus .. 'proportion' and 'nice'

MarlaSinger Wed 24-Sep-08 11:48:16

I'll tell you why her arms look weird - just what is she doing with her right one? In fact it looks a bit detached from her body - maybe it was superimposed.

Well, I am popping in M&S for some fruit at lunchtime so I'll have a nosy for it. I like the neckline, it looks long, and it's £15 - these are good things.

It is a bit of a 1950s 'I'm a modelle' pose, isn't it?

suwoo Wed 24-Sep-08 11:52:53

I find the big sleeves are the reaosns these srts of tops flatter, they make your stomach and waist look smaller in comparison. I have a few bat wing tops <<and yes I wore them the 1st time!>>

LaTrucha Wed 24-Sep-08 12:03:56

Could be. I'm certainly glad to disguise my sausages!

I was just looking at this top yesterday! I quite liked it, think I might get one. Do you think it would be flattering for a size 18?

LaTrucha Wed 24-Sep-08 16:19:57

I do.

lizandlulu Wed 24-Sep-08 16:44:28

ohh yes that nice

noddyholder Wed 24-Sep-08 16:46:39

Lizzylou Wed 24-Sep-08 16:47:19

OOh, I like that!
Have been looking for a nice top.
Will have a hunt for some online codes....

pointydog Wed 24-Sep-08 16:51:32

nice. I think that would flatter most people

Swedes Wed 24-Sep-08 17:20:33

Thank you for posting this. I've just bought one.

LaTrucha Wed 24-Sep-08 17:32:41

I've been wearing mine today and feeling swanky smile

Sycamoretree Wed 24-Sep-08 17:42:02

If I'm a 12-14 do you think I should order a 10 then? I really like the look of this, and like the price even more grin

turquoise Wed 24-Sep-08 17:48:03

Do you have any flab in the stomach area at all? Can't imagine it flattering anything but a completely concave flat stomach tbh.
If I wasn't a porker, I'd have this

It's lovely. I've picked it up in store twice and put it down again as I have so many black and grey tops. Now I WANT it and I bet you lot will all go and buy it so I can't get one!
