I bought a lovely bottle green sheer blouse today, but should I wear a camisole under it? If yes, then have you seen a dark green silky cami anywhere please?

Thank god someone has asked this question. I always wonder the same. I guess the answer is yes, a cami but will wait to see if the great and good can give a definitive answer.

I would wear any dark colour vest under it - grey, black, navy, green...

I tend to wear a vest top rather than a silky one, otherwise the two silky tops sort of float around together iykwim... And under green you could get away with a brown or black vest.

I wear a thin strapped lycra-ish vest top in wither the same colour or black. because it gives me a nice shape under the top rather than a looser camisole.

I'd go for a nude vest - M&S do them and they're pretty versatile...

Good old Primark do a fab range of coloured camisoles (though they aren't silky), I was lost til I discovered them! I am too old to go without, and a little overweight sad but if you look and feel good without then go for it!

Choose a colour vest/ cami that you have a matching bra for. I spent last night weirdly irritated by a woman sitting in front of me with a fab sheer red blouse and cami, spoilt by bright white bra straps showing through. smile

cami with lycra in. Sainsburys have a twin pack, 1 cream, one dark grey atm, go under most colours

H and M do a decent vest, part of their shapewear. Couldn't find it online to do a link, but I bought one in store last week for a tenner to wear under a silk shirt.

DD1 would second Primark, huge range of colours. She bought a shear top with an orange patten on cream. She joked it need an orange cami, but that wouldn't be easy.

Primark had exactly the right colour for £2.99 and it's beautiful feeling cotton too.

Top however is in my ironing heap [Blush]

Zara do a good green one that I wear under my sheer green top here I've had mine for ten years and it's still going strong!!!!
But I think black or nude would be good too

I saw it on a blog on a S&B thread then came across it in Marks yesterday. The advert doesnt do it justice it is very flattering and lovely on. here

I have a couple of cream ones, sometimes I wear a nudey colour cami and sometimes I wear a contrasting colour.

I am going against the grain and saying that I prefer a strapless bandeau top under sheer.

I stock up on cotton spaghetti-strap vests, black for any dark-coloured sheer tops and white for any light, for about £1.99 each in H&M. Although pseudonymity's idea of a bandeau is inspired since I do actually have strap-slippage due to stupidly small shoulders.
