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!!
