 BEFORE                                                                AFTER
I’ve been telling my clients about the camisole trick a lot lately. It’s hard to explain so I thought I’d do a post with pictures.  When I wear a tank top or any tight shirt I like to wear a camisole underneath to disguise any unwanted lumps, bumps and for a more polished look in general.  As you can see in the before picture my bra is making unwanted bumps and I don’t like that you can see where my skirt begins.  Put a camisole on underneath and viola, problem solved!

In this before picture you can see some bumps from my bra and my skin.  After putting on a camisole underneath both are disguised and the look is more polished.  I think I own about 6-8 different camisoles.  I love this trick.  I use it all the time.  My very favorite camisole, and I’ve tried quite a few, is Gap Body Pure Body White Camisole.  I buy it in small so it fits snug.

Speaking of disguising, I have another trick!  Sometimes when I feel like my chest is front and center, I like to add a scarf to distract the eye.  So now when you see me in a scarf you’ll know why:)  Did I mention that I’m crazy about my red/orange purse because it goes with nothing so it goes with everything?!?!

    Just discovered your blog and am now a follower! You have great style and tips! Question, I assume you are wearing the Gap camisole under the white tank? What is the white tank? Always looking for a good basic white tank that isn’t too revealing and this looks like a good one. Thanks!!
