I am after a selection of camisoles in several colours to wear underneath my knitwear and to layer with other tops. I'd like them to be fitted and very very fine so as to not contribute to the bulk at all. I'd also like them to be long enough to reach mid hip, not just waist length, and most importantly, I'd like them to stay put, not ride up. I was considering these but as I need them in several colours, I want to make sure they're the right thing or perhaps learn of your recommendations? www.jigsaw-online.com/products/modal-long-lace-vest-2110
I've got a cotton one from Primark - on the plus side it doesn't ride up and has adjustable straps but it's very long and 'cos it's cotton other fabrics tend to "stick" to it IYKWIM. Also find the straps a bit thin and underwear like to wear on its own.
I'll be checking all your suggestions, many thanks. Anybody know what Gap tall vests are like? Branleuse sizing up wouldn't work because then the vest would stop being like a second skin and the straps will probably keep on falling which is annoying.
OP I have 3 of those Jigsaw ones (JL had them in the sale ) and they are brilliant. IME they don't ride up, are stylish enough to show under another top, lovely and silky to the touch, and smart enough to wear on their own in the summer.
