Where in the UK can I buy good quality, plain women's T-shirts?

I want something that won't stretch out of shape within half a dozen washes, that isn't floral, pastel, see-through or low-cut. Surely this must be possible?

Once upon a time you could at least rely on Gap to make T-shirts in a material and finish substantial enough that they wouldn't lose their shape or stretch at the neck within a few washes.
But alas, they seem to have joined the "T-shirts are disposable garments that we must spend as little as possible on" gang now.
I'm looking for T-shirts I can wear to work in a smart casual office, preferably:
* Plain colours - black, white, navy etc rather than pastels
* Crew neck rather that V or low cut.
* Properly opaque, not so thin I have to wear a vest top underneath
* Slightly fitted rather than the straight/square BHS look.
FWIW, I'm a fairly curvy 12-14 with a long torso, and have access to most high street stores. Thanks in advance, hive shoppers!
