Help me find some lovely holiday tops, please!

Off on holiday in a couple of weeks.

I haven't managed to lose the half stone I needed, and as I tend to carry weight round my midriff, t-shirts are out as I don't want to show off my spare tyre!

So I need some tops that are fitted around the bust but are then a bit more flowy rather than fitted round the body.

Short sleeved or sleeveless are both fine.

I'm a size 12. I'm looking for stuff that I can wear during the day, so not overly formal

In terms of colour, to go with the tops I have white and denim shorts (longer rather than short shorts), navy and pale green cropped trousers.

Budget not too much of an issue, within reason.

Can anyone point me in some kind of a direction?

M&S sale had some lovely cotton or cotton/silk mix tops that sort of flared over the tummy. One was orange and white (sounds awful but was really pretty) and one was white with black spots. Unfortunately I have norks and they both made me look pregnant. Think they were 15 squid apiece.

I've just trawled through M&S and didn't notice anything like that - which is a shame as it's probably the most convenient place for me to go!

I might go and have another look tomorrow though.

TK Maxx
Elys - independent department store, with Phase 8, Hobbs, amongst others
River Island

(more, but I can't remember!)
