Our selection of plus size tops provide stylish options for every occasion. From smart shirts to wear in the office to embroidered tunics to take on holiday, whatever your wardrobe requirements we’ve got you covered. A top style that is widely popular is the long top or longline top as it’s also known. Falling at a longer length, it’s great for styling as part of a layered look. Many plus size women also find it a flattering choice thanks to its ability to elongate your top half and provide coverage for your bottom.
Perfect for layering
In winter and summer layering plays a big role in our wardrobes. The French use the idiom “dressing like an onion” to describe the look. A long top is a layering essential and often makes up the foundation of an effortless thrown together look.
3 ways to layer a long top
1) To the office
Slip a lightweight, round neck knit over a long shirt and team with tailored trousers for a chic workwear look. Finishing with a statement jeweled necklace (place it right under the collar, just peeking out) will add extra polish.
2) On the weekend
Take your cue from the LA style set and layer a long t-shirt (we’re into grey marl and white V-neck styles) under a denim shirt. Teamed with signature jeans or khaki cargo pants it screams casual-cool.
3) Out for the evening
An embellished or chiffon long top looks seriously sleek worn with a razor sharp blazer and leatherleggings. Complete the combo with ankle strap heels for understated glamour.
Sleeveless long tops
Our sleeveless long tops are longer versions of the tank top and come in a range of gorgeous casual and smart styles. With their long, flowing fabric, they’re both comfortable and flattering to your figure. They look elegant with your favourite jeans as well as keeping you nice and cool in the warmer months.
Fabrics and cuts
As well as simple cotton designs, our collection of long sleeveless tops features all manner of different fabrics, including floaty chiffon, luxe crepe and soft satin. With lots of different necklines and hems, you’ll soon find one that suits your figure and your individual sense of style. For more formal occasions, we even have luxurious designs featuring glittery sequin details and rhinestone embellished necklines - just right for a night out.
We know not everyone is confident about their curves, and for some finding garments that flatter specific areas can really boost ones self esteem. If you’re pear shaped or bottom heavy and want to disguise your hips and/or derriere, a long top does just the job. Depending on the length of the hem, you can find countless styles that will provide coverage for these areas.
The choice is yours
So whether you end up going for a crinkly, cotton design or a colourful, floral fabric, choose a long top for a twist on the traditional to show that you’re not afraid to experiment.
