Hello there! I’m Jacqueline’s daughter. Mother and I have a wardrobe-extender to shout-out about today that may or may not be on your radar. We’ve been eyeing 2 of Deborah & Co.’s halftees (aka a cami or shell) and are thrilled with the opportunity to review both!
We had so much fun trying on different outfits with our new halftees and posing with Mother’s little Nikon Coolpix S6400 point-and-shoot camera.
The cropped halftee above (on Mother) and the full length halftee (on me) met all our expectations. The sizing was exact, not running too large or small, and the fit was ultra comfortable. We have always been impressed with the quality of Caroline’s products.
“Higher Neckline? I’m reversible!”
The difficult thing about layering to make things modest is the extra bulk that it creates. You can eliminate unflattering bunching with the halftee. (This is not a replacement for a bra!) It fits snugly – never, ever have we had a problem with one riding up or moving without our consent. Both halftees open up a whole world of options.
The cropped halftee does away with the heat and bunching of a full t-shirt. Now Mother can layer tops that she wouldn’t wear before because of a too wide or too low neckline, or even wear it under a sweater without having to add the bulk of a whole cami.
The full-length halftee can double as a tank or a tee with cap sleeves. My favorite way to put this layering piece to good use is to use it under sweaters or shirts that you don’t want buttoned.
Maybe you know we love to bargain shop for clothes. We have lots of separates that we love to pull together and the basic shell is how we do it. Deborah and Co.’s cami selection, including nursing tanks shells, will keep you covered all year round!
