The Secrets of Cotton Camisoles And Looking Great

Cotton Camisoles - While they are definitely not considered exotic lingerie, camisoles are a wonderful lingerie drawer basic and must have for women of all ages.

Originally worn strictly underneath one's clothing, today's camisoles and cami sets can be worn as both inner and outerwear, and are perhaps among the most versatile intimate apparel available.

Cotton Camisoles - The Dos and Don'ts

Looking for inspiration to keep it fresh and fabulous? Here are a few of our favorite cami do's and dont's.

The Camisole Dos

  • For a super polished look, opt for a cotton cami with lace or satin trim under your suit jacket, blouse, or even sweater for the office
  • For summer weekend wear, pair a cotton with lace camisole with your favorite jeans or crisp white pants for an effortless casual look
  • For a fun casual look, layer two camisoles in complementary or even contrasting colors
  • Match red, green, blue, or a pink camisole with white or black camisoles. Be sure both have similar shoulder straps and necklines
  • Need more support? Consider trying one of the new camisole bras that have a hidden shelf bra or molded underwire cup bra that offer additional support
  • Love to workout? You're in luck. Cotton is a natural fabric that breathes and helps to keep you cool. Pair cotton camisoles with workout wear such as your shorts, leggings and yoga pants

The Cami Don'ts

  • Mix and match fabrics. For example, sheer camisoles or satin camisole with cotton...too many lingerie looks together are a no no for outer-wear
  • Choose a skimpy camisole if you are busty and need support...instead look for a cami with good support or a more substantial tank top with pretty lace or mesh trim
  • Wear a black bra under a white camisole. It will show through. Instead, opt for a white or nude colored bra. Or, better yet, choose a camisole with built in bra
