I bought a knitted one recently and am not sure about it.

However, I have a cottony fitting one too and I like it.

Is it possible to wear knitted tank and not look a tool?

NO PATTERNS for big tits

agree with youareright - can look nice if worn with white shirt underneath

i love tank tops with a nice blouse underneath dare i mention i really like Boden ones i am certainly not thin bt i think i look ok in them especially with wide legged trousers to balance out hips etc

I have been looking for one for ages and found one in M&S today. It better fit and look good.

high necks fro small norkers only

thin women with small boobs
my italian skinny friend looks gorgeous in crisp white shirt and tank top
i look shit in one

I do not have overly large tits. I have a broad back and that might be my downfall. I do not suit blouses.

I thin what I need is a good top underneath, rather than shirt.

Maybe this sort of thing

i a couple of these tops last year for putting underneath things. they are fab.

i look like a tank in a tank top.

white stuff do a nice shirt to wear under
kind of aertex stretch(soudns crap eh?)

YouAreRight Fri 28-Aug-09 20:10:06

nt on the site
they do em every year i think

autumnscoming Fri 28-Aug-09 20:10:34

yes that fabstretch looks decent

CybilLiberty Fri 28-Aug-09 20:15:06

I prefer long sleeve thin tees under tanks. A shirt can look too prumpy (cross between prim and frumpy)

dogofpoints Fri 28-Aug-09 20:15:26

I am not familiar with primark but white stuff is quite good, inteeresting patterns, lovely colours, prob still overpriced but then I think everything is overpriced

i got a fab strethc sweater from there last year in grey and it was great wiht a shirt under - had to size up. IME kew is HUGE on bottom and tight on top
wanted to get another later in the year and all gorn

dogofpoints Fri 28-Aug-09 20:15:55

yes, cybil, I think I am agreeing with you and I should bear that in mind.

dogofpoints Fri 28-Aug-09 20:16:25

maybe it is just your tits that make it all tight

YouAreRight Fri 28-Aug-09 20:16:48

depends on your styling imo
i wore it with a male type work shirt and me old hoop earrings
looked good ( i htink)

CybilLiberty Fri 28-Aug-09 20:17:03

yes her tits are massive

dogofpoints Fri 28-Aug-09 20:19:11

I think, though - on reflection - that with my broad back I could not get away with the shirt/tank look. I need a tight top/tank look. My back dictates my 'styling'
