Lovely vest top - wish they'd sell them in store.

Definitely not for a DD-G bust!
Very pretty and well made, but nowhere near the kind of support that a DD-G bust needs. As another reviewer says, the straps are set too wide on the shoulders and the V-neck is way too deep and baggy to provide adequate coverage or support. And I'm only a 8 DD/E. It felt like a A-D design transposed onto a DD-G without any thought for the different styling required. A shame - I am now going to have to start resorting to more expensive versions elsewhere as M&S are failing in this department. My last decent DD-G top from about 3 years ago is just giving up the ghost :(

Agreed - Nearly but not quite right...
The design is not right; Straps sit too far out on the shoulders to feel comfortable. The v-neck looks nice when 1st on, but then v-neck slips down & is far too deep => flattering shape goes south, doesn’t support & you pop out whilst sleeping! Can't resolve by shortening the shoulder straps as simply cut into your shoulders. I think the v-neck at the front is simply cut too big & deep for DD-G’s. Dropping down a size to a 10 (32FF) helped a little, but still not right.
Length is on the long side for my 5ft 6" body length (same as picture) so I pull it up a bit so more comfortable & flattering.
The material is good; not too thin or see-through. The composition mix of viscose & cotton is good mitigating the material bobbling. Raspberry colour with black lace is nice & girlie.
M&S, please bring back the pattern used a number of years ago; it worked better for DD-G sleep vests. It would also be nice to see DD-G secret support for short & long sleeve tops, chemise & nightdresses...

Nearly but not quite
Well, it's nice that these DD-G pyjamas colours are finally being done in a colour other than white again. This is made of nice soft fabric and the colour is a lovely vibrant fuchsia pink. I am also pleased to see that the straps are a bit sturdier this time (they are meant to be supporting DD-G cup sizes and tiny straps digging into your shoulders is not comfortable!).
However there are still problems- the straps need to be even wider to provide decent support, the v-neck is still far too deep (far too much cleavage on show) and the length is way too long. I am 5ft 4 and the top comes down past my bottom!
So- nearly but not quite. It would be nice to have some with short sleeves and long sleeves for the winter too.
