Best Tees for under wraps and cardigans.

Hi Ladies,

 

Looking for a tee, perhaps fitted or even a shaping one, that would work well under cardigans and wraps. I do have a few of those "rolls" that others are talking about on another thread (Woman Surprised) so I like the feeling of something with a little spandex or some kind of fitted feel. I've tried the Skinny Tees and I did not like them.

 

Anything out there that fits this bill? Anything you love?

TIAWoman Very Happy

this legacy tee is great......i own four colors and will probably end up buying a few more. i did go up a size from my regular qvc size, but it does have a lot of stretch to it. it is a relatively material  and perfect for layering.

the ruched one is also nice for layering........i own this in all four colors offered.

they also pack well and wash well. i also like that these are not modified necklines, which qvc has a tendency to do on many of the tops they carry.

Re: Best Tees for under wraps and cardigans.

glmama, I haven't found one that does everything, unfortunately.  I did find a cami that I really like at Target.  It is their Jockey cam, and the material feels so good against your skin..  They only have 3 colors, though,  online.  I think that Penney's might have this brand in different colors.  It is sooo hard to find the perfect cami!!  For a type of shapewear for a few rolls (I think I read that thread, too), I like QVC's Assets Red Hot Label (A2525127).  They just have a few sizes remaining.  It's called an open bra tank. 

 

I'll be reading the responses that you get since I am always looking for a great cami.

I love the "shaped layering" tees from Land's End.

They come in crew, scoop, or v-neck, and short or long sleeve. I have a bunch.

Skuggles and sunshine-Thank you both. Smiley Happy I'm off to check out the Q ones, Target, and LE! 

Hope to get even more recommendations. This is one of those simple, yet hard-to-find items!

Here's one I like from Women with Control - A263911. I get the petite, but it does come in regular too. The neckline is reversible, and I find myself wearing it a lot. It does smooth me out, but it's not like Spanx! Smiley Happy

Re: Best Tees for under wraps and cardigans.

I own so very many of A 212403 Liz C "U" Neck Tee because you can't see through it, (hate white blouses/shirts with white bras) and there are so very many colors! and 100% cotton too!!!  Can't get any better!  

I'd go with a control top cami if you feel you need it because you can wear it with other things.

@glmama

I believe @LTT1 is a fan of the "tissue" pieces from J. Crew.

Hey, lola... yes, I am a fan of the J Crew tissues... however, all tissue tees are not equal LOL

Some are so beautifully made and they feel so good... I think they are made with a little bit of spandex.  Probably from the actual JC and not "factory."  I wore a navy one yesterday that I'd love to have a closet full of!  Could not see thru and yet the dark color hid any "rolls."  Very slimming.

 

Under a wrap I would wear these or a crewneck from GAP... all navy, but some from the GAP are kind of thin.

 

I guess since I do have some rolls, I will be wearing lots of more intense colors now...

 

have been thinking about your "go-to" tank and beginning to see its value under these.
