Afraid not. They are very soft though, and I like that you tell them your height and they work out where to put the pockets.

I saw this last week and thought of you actually!

I don't think you want t shirts to be tight, just fitted - not baggy.
I think this is ok... I like the fact it nips in.

I think it's really nice on you and looks comfortable and easy to dress up or down.

You don't sound too sure though, Lily?!

I am never sure of my own opinions when it comes to fashion! But I do really like it. It's very forgiving. I'm just not used to wearing anything high-neck :shoulderobsessed:

I'm in summer dresses for the next coupla'three so can take this time to seek out some decent autumn/winter clothing.

Your shoulders look absolutely fine! And in proportion to you. Mine look much like that and I've not given them a second thought, I wonder if you're overthinking yours, and this enlarges them in your mind? I like that dress, it's a keeper for me.

I love the high necked sleeveless dress on you, Lily! I think it’s a good length and great colour.

If your back's against the wall, turn around and write on it.

Your shoulders look fine and the dress is very nice :))

I agree with Baa that you’ve perhaps enlarged them in your mind - they look entirely normal to me!

You really have great shoulders Lily! They are very shapely, that was the first thing I noticed on your pics. Nice dress too!

Thank you all, I do appreciate it as it's very difficult for me to be objective about my body at the moment and I'm cross about that. My shoulders are bloody useful for when I need to heft things around, I'll give them that! :flo:

I honestly think you have fab, shapely, proportionate shoulders! But I do know how hard it can be to be objective about yourself.

Thank you Geek.

Thanks also to Emma for suggesting Hush - I got some nice ones in the sale. I'm not sure about the black one so I have ordered a green one to try too.
