There’s nothing worse than having a great outfit that can’t be worn because of some minor defect. Over the years, I’ve encountered many of these defects firsthand. Badly sewn pockets on jeans and pants can make hips look twice as wide. Puffy sleeves can make shoulders seem too broad and bulky. Skirts that fall between the knees and the ankles can make legs look stumpy. The list of fashion woes is endless, and often there is no solution except to discard the offending piece of clothing.
Of all the fashion agonies I have been through, there is none more annoying than a shirt that is too short. I’ve fought with shirts that have this flaw for years without hope of ever finding a solution other than constantly tugging the bottom of the shirt down. Then one day, hope appeared on the horizon. Blush Accessories promised to end the agony of the riding-up shirt once and for all. Their fashionable and comfortable topless undershirts are designed to provide extra coverage in the stomach and hips so that a short shirt doesn’t leave a woman feeling exposed and uncomfortable. I couldn’t wait to try their product for myself.
I received a beautiful blue Blush topless undershirt in a medium to review. The undershirt is a tube of an incredibly soft and stretchy poly/rayon/spandex blend designed to fit comfortably underneath any shirt that tends to ride up and expose the stomach. I immediately ran upstairs to find a shirt that matched the blue topless undershirt.
The undershirt is worn underneath the chest and pulls down to completely cover the stomach and hips. Once I had it on, I added a too-short dark red t-shirt that I had bought as a teenager and hadn’t had the heart to get rid of. I positioned the topless undershirt underneath to cover my stomach and hips and then smoothed the t-shirt over top. A quick glance in the mirror confirmed that I was fully covered and looked great!
My biggest concern about the topless undershirt had been that it would gradually slip down in the course of the day. While it did shift around a little, it never exposed my torso, never became bulky and bunched and kept my look slim and streamlined no matter how active I was. Even better, the soft material of the Blush undershirt was so comfortable that I often forget I had it on! I loved being able to wear my too-short shirt again and feel completely confident and comfortable throughout the day, and the topless undershirt was the perfect way to add coverage without adding too many layers in hot summer weather.
My favorite thing about Blush undershirts is a benefit I hadn’t even considered. When I pull up my shirt to feed my baby, my torso is still covered! I have always hated struggling with awkward blankets when I breastfeed in public, and even when I do, my back and sides are sometimes exposed anyways. With the Blush topless undershirt, my upper body is no longer visible even when I’m nursing!
Blush Accessories offers their incredibly popular topless undershirts in a fantastic assortment of colors and patterns. With a topless undershirt to match any outfit, every shirt can become wearable once again! The undershirts are great for maternity wear as well, and help to minimize maternity clothing purchases by allowing women to keep wearing their current shirts throughout pregnancy.
Since the first day of using my Blush undershirt, I have ransacked my closet and pulled out every other short shirt I own. Having a topless undershirt has given me a whole new wardrobe to choose from. I love the freedom that my Blush undershirt has brought to my life, and I no longer have to feel guilty for keeping shirts that I don’t wear. If you’re tired of fighting with uncomfortably revealing tops, you can’t go wrong with a Blush Accessories topless undershirt!
