Loose fit cotton baggy t shirts and tops for a fat tummy

Have tried so many places online and can't find anywhere that sells this sort of top. I'm a size 20 with a large tummy so I need something loose fitting. I know others have recommended different shops/outlets such as Cotton Traders, Hush, Orvis, Masai, White Company etc but they either have nothing suitable, don't do cotton or are far too expensive. Where do other fat tummied ladies buy their reasonably priced comfort tops?

Try Yours clothes - they have shops but easier to go online. I am sure you will find something on there and they are reasonable price.
Good Luck!

Have a look at Kit and Kaboodle....some lovely stuff there.
They have decent sales too but I don't think their prices are too bad at all.

Just looked at Kit and Kaboodle -it’s an excellent web “shop” Dee. Not heard of it before so I’ll be doing that right now! Thanks.

Marnies Curvy Girls Clothes and Ulla Popken have the type of tops you are after. They are not cheap, but there are always bargains from them on Ebay.

Try Tillets online fashion. They do have shops ..think in North of England. Lots of loose tops there. Also just been looking at THEFASHIONSHOP.ONLINE.

Try Bon Prix?

Some great suggestions here. Thanks all.

Try Next on line, great colours, nice fabrics and brilliant service. Prices aren’t bad either.

Thanks Dee. I hadn’t heard of it and it looks good. Have a good day ✅

Definitely Yours clothing. They have a lovely choice and I've always found their clothes seem to hang in a very flattering way( I'm the same size and issue as you😊). Their prices are reasonable and sales brilliant. I think their sizing is brilliant too, I don't often try things on but have never had to take anything back! I'm now feeling quite nostalgic for the nice tops I have from there and havent had chance to wear for a while!

I have been shopping with Yours since before it became Yours (previously Size Up and Breakers) and though sometimes I have bought things from supermarkets, I always go back to Yours.
They have some lovely bardot tops at the moment that you can wear on or off the shoulder and their basic t shirts are good - the ones they call "seamed " have the back in two sections so a looser fit - great if you have a tum!
Can also recommend their stretch rib trousers - I used to wear them for work when I was a merchandiser - so comfortable !
PS if you have a store near you, most are now open - the staff are mostly plus sized too so know all about the pros and cons of being a lucious lovely!

Qvc have some nice ones.
Denim & Co have lovely cotton.
Not cheap but last .

If you just want a good quality T-shirt there is a company called Gildan which has a large range of sizes and colours. Not too expensive.

I've recently bought two tops from Cotton Traders which are made from viscose - cool and comfortable to wear and doesn't crease as badly as cotton. They still have them in the sale - try 'Frill sleeve top'.

TLVgran48 Sat 11-Jul-20 11:22:01

I love Lands' End (sorry about the apostrophe) - have a look at - they have very tummy friendly t-shirts.

Hetty58 Sat 11-Jul-20 11:27:51

I'd go for loose tops rather than t-shirts (that tend to cling). I do like the longer sort that flare out a little, so they still fit on the shoulders but skim over the 'lockdown belly'.

Glambat Sat 11-Jul-20 11:36:41

Hi Jellybeanjean....take a look at a company called Luvvy, they do a range of loose linen type tops in large sizes & they don’t cost the earth....

silverlining48 Sat 11-Jul-20 11:46:28

Its not my tummy but my hips which are the problem. I don’t spend a lot on clothes so often shop in Asda, they are very reasonable and have a nice selection of loose tops. As Hetty said tee shirts can be clingy so best avoided.

annecordelia Sat 11-Jul-20 11:53:57

I've had my boobs removed but have a really fat tummy so can't wear plain t shirts at all. This season I've had a couple of nice ones from Lands end or, pre-lockdown, Mantaray but many Debenhams closing now?

Hetty58 Sat 11-Jul-20 12:01:24

I'm really very frugal with everyday clothes so I 'treated' myself to ten tops from the £2.50 sale. Some of their stuff is really nice, just choose carefully:
