I don't usually review clothing but I absolutely had to share my latest find!
This is a cotton jersey camisole with a built-in underwire bra and substantial (but not too heavy) lingerie straps. The bra is real: hooks in the back, the cups rest in the correct position on the chest (meaning they don't stand away from the chest wall like another brand of bra-cami that were around about three years ago at places like NY&Co), the straps are adjustable. I found it in white and black, with and without cotton lace trim at the neckline.
I am a largish C-cup and I Can. Not. Wear. those little jersey shelf-bra camis you find everywhere. For starters, they give me uniboob; the shelf bra never contains the entire breast, the straps are always teeny and dig into my shoulders (and twist up, irretrievably, in the wash), and I always feel as though I'm spilling out of them. Additionally, 9 out of 10 jersey camis will, IME, itch.
These soft cotton camis do not itch, not even a little bit. There's no tag driving me crazy on the side (which I would have to rip out, immediately causing the seam to split at that point). That's great, right? The not itching? But they WORK. The cups are real cups. Wires are real wires. Cami provides real coverage and real support. Long enough (and non-clingy enough) that it doesn't ride up. And hooray, the bra straps don't peek out because...they're built in! Hallelujah!
I'm also superpicky about the shape created by my bras. No torpedo tits for me; I like 'em nice and ROUND. The Bali bra cami gives me a nice round, supported rack, a smooth line (no bra bulge), and they cover the cleavage, which is why I wanted to wear a cami in the first place--to fill in under a low-necked top. I also wear it by itself and it doesn't look trashy. The cups are foam-lined so I don't have to walk around with my lights on all the time. SO comfortable. I look forward to using them as an extra layer in winter.
Anyway. Enough from me. If you're a bit on the busty side and have given up on camis, check these out. I found mine at Penney's. It retails for $36, but I got mine on sale. Definitely worth a look.
*Edit: Sent the white one through the wash in a lingerie bag and nothing bad happened. It's fine, bra didn't suffer any weirdo damage.
