I have finally spent my Christmas 2014 giftcards! All 11 of the items I took into the changing room would work well on a flat chest, but I chose the Black Watch Tartan Tunic Dress and the Parisian Collection Pussybow Blouse.
There were also lots of lovely blanket wraps and cardis instore which are perfect for autumn, and for flat chests! I have added them to the Layers page.
Wrap Front Sleeveless Top, Item No: 3309962
Verdict: These wrap front tops are everywhere at the moment and work really well, draping over the chest and hanging nicely around the tummy area. If the V neck is too low (it didn’t feel too revealing) then you could wear a contrasting vest underneath. This top is available in lots of different colours online.
Blackwatch Tartan Tunic Dress, Item No: 3461807
Verdict: I love this! I love the green and blue check print; the fitted/shift shape; the double pocket front; the length of the sleeves, and it’s complete lack of darts! It does come up slightly small – I have bought it in a 12 whereas I am normally a standard 10 in New Look.
Colour Block Oversized T-Shirt, Item No: 3538498
Verdict: Great everyday t-shirt; the block of colour falls perfectly across the chest and the black top edge and sleeves add width; available in range of colours online.
Parisian Floral Print Pussybow Blouse, Item No: 3544788
Verdict: My second purchase – Puff shoulder/sleeves; all over floral print; casual fit, and pussybow detail all look great on a flat chest. I will be wearing this everywhere!
Necklace Sleeveless Top, Item No: 3553306
Verdict: Easy to wear top which drapes from the collar and gently flares out to skim over the hips, with necklace front detail.
Chiffon Lace Up Gypsy Top, Item No: 3511735
Verdict: Oh, the gypsy top! You can’t escape them this year, but to be fair they are a flat girls best friend. Shirring detail with delicate pleats underneath work perfectly on a flat chest, and it also flares flatteringly over the tummy and hips. I love this rust colour, but it does come in other shades too.
Rose Shirt, Item No: 3557428
Verdict: A size 8 was the closest I could find instore, and it just about fitted but I am sure this would look much better in the correct size or even one size up to give it some movement. You could always wear a contrasting vest underneath to add a silhouette.
Floral Print High Neck Cami, Item No: 3551004
Verdict: If you have had a double mastectomy without reconstruction then make the most of not having to wear a bra with this top with spaghetti straps and racer back. Gorgeous print and colours for autumn layering.
Pleated Front Ruffle Sleeve Top, Item No: 3571855
Verdict: If you don’t mind how visible the interface is on this cream top (also available in black) then this is a perfect office-into-evening top. The ruffle sleeves add width and the pleats add volume and detail across the chest.
2 in 1 Wrap Front Step Hem Top, Item No: 3503689
Verdict: The integral cami with a wrap front top should be perfect on a flat chest, but this one din’t work for me. The cami hangs quite low making it too revealing for me, and the fabric created so much static (as you can see in the photo) it was stuck to me and so didn’t hang very well.
