Am I the only one who feels this way, or do other D+ women hate how using camis for cleavage control spoils a neckline? The examples below aren’t the worse that I’ve seen. They’re simply all I could find on my foray into the city this afternoon.
I’ll grant that a white cami can add lightness to an otherwise dreary color combination, and it can also help a woman whose balance points are higher than where the neckline falls. But much of the time they are simply obvious cleavage-hiding tools without any stylistic redemption. Keep reading to find cleavage solutions that score style points, too.
Ideally, we could all wear a neckline as the designer intended–and as Margaret Shrum is wearing it below. Currently a 36D, Margaret gets away with the depth of this neckline for two reasons: (1) her cleavage is more subtle than it would be if she wore a higher cup size; and (2) she left the corporate dress code behind when she embarked on her career as a personal lingerie shopper.
I’m almost at the point where I would rather show cleavage than wear something as obviously pinned as the dress of this speaker at a workshop I attended last week. (On the other hand, it was an amazing workshop, and this wardrobe gaffe helped humanize her a little bit.)
If a cami is absolutely necessary–and it usually is–here are my preferences.
Have you checked out Second Base yet? http://www.shopsecondbase.com/
I got some samples last month, and I’ve been wearing them everywhere. I got pretty basic ones, but they also sell nice decorative ones so you’re not stuck with the boring tank top line. They’ve worked out really well for me so far.
I saw them at Curve and enjoyed talking to the rep. It looked like they would fit us, so I’m glad to hear they do. Will you be writing about them? I like that they come in a ton of colors and different styles. Only wish they came in V-necks, too.
