Where do you buy them from AND what are the rules for wearing them??? For example do you get them big and bagggy and wear on their own or wear a chunky belt with them? Do you avoid belts if they have some kind of frill round the bottom???

I like some on other people and the few I have tried just swamp me - but is that what they are supposed to do and its just a case of getting use to looking pregnant wearing them???

You buy them in your size, so a size ten if you are a size ten etc.

It is just a case of getting used to flowing loose tops but it shouldn't swamp you.

I tihnk whether or not you wear a belt is up to you, whatever you're more comfortable with and depending on what your body size is really.

Went into Topshop Central yesterday and there were racks and racks and racks of them on the lowest floor.

I guess just try on some more and see what suits.

I have one and wear mostly without a belt. However, it has a drop-waist drawstring, so it has some structure already built into it.

I wear something slim on bottom half if wearing volume on top half, and vice versa.

I do not want to be mistaken for a Spanish galleon in full sail....

Zara's good if you want to be an authentic Spanish galleon!
