Comfortable layer when you need a little more coverage

10/18/2018 by Janet

With cooler temperatures, sometimes you need another layer under a jacket. This top provides the cover without the bulk. Jackets slip right on and it makes for a great look on its own.


Great for times when you need some light coverage under a sleeveless blouse!

For those times when I want to wear a sleeveless blouse and either it's too cold or inappropriate to have sleeveless, I can put on this shirt. I bought it in white and black so I'd have one for all occasions. Awesome!


Fabulous for layering

I love these tops. I wear them under anything in the winter time. They feel supurb and are so light but give a little extra protection from the cold.


Layering essential

Soft, delicate, perfect addition to any wardrobe. I love layering so this is great for me. I'm going to order another in black (purchased the white first).


Great Layering piece

Great Staple for my Wardrobe

Really this is like nylons or tights for your arms and torso. I do wish it was priced more like expensive nylons. Thanks for the pilling and snagging comments; now I know to be very careful with this. Perhaps the packaging could warn about how fragile the top is? If they are worn, packed and washed as carefully as nylons, I'm sure they will last a long time.

Anyhow, I LOVE this garment! I bought it to go under a cardigan sweater that I keep open at the top and it is perfect. Super comfortable, covers what it needs to, and prevents the itchy sweater from touching my skin.


a smart buy

This piece is as described. Overall the one size fits all is true. I gave one to plus size friend and to a fit, slim, and petite niece. It fit both beautifully. The purplish/wine color is exquisite. A great purchase.

I've now bought 3 of these and I love them all. Perfect for undergarment, and also for dance classes.

So tiny but it feels and looks so nice. I might buy one more in another color.


Love this shirt

July what I needed for vest I knit myself. Meant to be worn sleeveless in summer but this makes vest perfect for winter/fall in SoCal.
