I need some singlets to wear with my v-neck tops and dresses. All the ones I have (from Target etc) have scooped necklines that sit too low and show my cleavage and make me feel too cold.

Can you suggest some singlets where the neckline sits higher, more like just below the collarbone?

Katie’s have some nice reversible singlets (one side is a v-neck and the other rounded) that sit nice and high. In black and white. I think they’re part of their basics range.

Edit - I think they only have nude at the moment

Thanks SecretGarden. I was hoping for black/white/navy so will look out for further suggestions too.

Uniqlo has some good options - often reversible as well. Country road used to do very good singlets that lasted forever. Not sure if they still have them. I have some bonds ones that are ok as well from big w

I also bought some country road ones a while ago that were very good.

Thanks all - I went to Bonds today and found some tops that fit the bill. I’ll also check out Uniqlo and Country Road later this week.

What size are you?


I find the Target adult ones way too low, and way too long, because I'm only 5ft 2in.   I'm also only a 12B and some of their singlet tops seem to assume you have massive boobs to accommodate.

I now buy the girls' size 14 (they have a 16), which seems to be about a size ten, but higher at the top, and not as long.

Definitely Uniqlo. Their bra tops are brilliant if  you're not too well endowed. The bra in them provides quite an adequate amount of support, much to my surprise.

Good idea. I am a similar size and sometimes buy girls’ 14 or 16 clothes at Target. I’ll check that section.
