Hi there!

Great idea for a challenge.  Man does my closet need some help. :/

I'm curious... I love the look of layers in the fall and winter, but hate the bulk.  Any suggestions for layering without the bulk??

I love today's t-shirt assignment but don't have a good t-shirt bra. Any recommendations?

Hi Scrappymama3,

I completely understand - when I moved from the South to NY, I had to learn how to layer without looking like marshmallow!  When purchasing new pieces, keep in mind if you think you might want to layer under them so you buy the correct size & allow for a little room.  My recommendation is to use pieces that are lightweight & fitted or semi-fitted for your base layer.  For example, a silk button-down blouse is thinner & will lay more nicely under a knit sweater than a crisp poplin shirt.  If you're wearing a sweater underneath a blazer, make sure it's a fine gauge fabric like merino wool or a nylon/rayon blend.

Hi Catthee,

I love a good t-shirt bra! These are the ultimate essential to any wardrobe and can make anything from a t-shirt to your favorite blouse or sweater look their best. You'll want to make sure that the shape covers up through swell of the breast to make sure there's no seam or cleavage popping out over the top, and you'll want to make sure to get at least two: one in a true nude for your skin tone and the other in black. Wacoal and Bali make great t-shirt bras and they're available pretty much everywhere, as does H&M and GapBody. If you're a bit more endowed, Freya and Fantasie make amazing bras for larger cup sizes.
