Big call I know, but I’m going to make it!
OK, so I know it won’t be the perfect tee for EVERYBODY, but it certainly is for me (so if you have boobs, listen up!). I know that one size doesn’t fit all, but this one comes pretty close. I can see it working on most people.
So first of all, here is the tee…..
SHOP IT HERE: Portmans V Neck Flutter Sleeve Tee (NZ $39.95)
I have it in more than one colour……..
Why do I love it so much? A couple of reasons.
1. The V-neck
So hard to find a v-neck tee. If you are bigger in the bust, a v-neck can help “divide and conquer” – that is, break up the surface area across your bust, making it look smaller. A v-neck can definitely work for a smaller bust too, just make sure it doesn’t sit toooo low.
2. The Cap Sleeve
The angle and detail on this sleeve works really nicely too. What you want to AVOID in a tee, is a sleeve that finishes right in line with your bust – all it does is widen that whole area. I always looks for a slightly shorter (cap) sleeve, or a slightly longer (3/4) sleeve.
3. The Fabric.
Ahhhhhhh. It all comes down to the fabric. I LOVE this fabric (it’s a Viscose/Elastane blend if you want to get technical) because it has DRAPE. It’s going to cling to the right bits, and skim over the bits we want it to skim over. It’s not tight, it’s not loose, it’s just right.
(a note on sizing. I’m a size 12 and I bought the M in the stripe and the black, BUT I went up to an L for the white. That is a personal preference because I didn’t want the white to be quite as fitted)
The beauty of a tee-shirt is that it will go with almost anything in your wardrobe! Rock it causally with jeans, try it with a skirt, or pair it back with some nicer pants for a casual-Friday option at work. For bonus inspiration, check out three ways I’ve style another tee here
What do you think? Are you a tee-lover? If not, then this is the tee for you!
