Vest tops which don't cling to outer layer

Recently I read a comment on here about a particular fabric of vest that doesn't cling to the jumper/t-shirt worn over the top of it, thus flattering muffin top waistlines!
Sadly I can't find the thread or the recommendation - can anyone help?

Oh, they sound useful. I'd like to know too please smile

I would like to know too!

I keep meaning to get a silk one for this purpose. Is there another cheaper fabric that's been recommended?

Would silk work? Or maybe that stuff that is used for slips, but I don't know what it's called! Someone must know, the thread I saw it mentioned on was only a few weeks ago. Please rack your brains?

i started a thread on this last year...uniqlo vests were recommended a lot- can't remember actual name of them, think they were "shapewear" ones.
i just got a M&S silky feel one in the end.

GoingSouth, did the M&S silky feel vest work as a non-clingy underlayer? And do you know what it's made of? Can't see any anything fitting your description on the website, but that's probably my rubbish search skills!

I wear the matalan vest tops daily, I like to be warm and nothing clings

Nothing special about them 95% cotton 5% elastane

will see if i can find it....(and check it actually was M&S ! )

I've got loads of cotton/elastane ones, but jumpers do cling to them on me, I know there's a particular fabric which is supposed to be less clingy. Maybe its the Heattec ones.

They are m&s tops made from a slightly silkier stretch fabric (like very thin Lycra) then the usual jersey cotton vest tops. I have them, they are in the lingerie depot. Outer fabric then doesn't stick to the silky stretch vest tops like it can do the cotton ones.

here it is..

*than the usual

The fabrics probably the same as mine, everything but mind don't have a lace trim and go straight across.

Dulcimena Sat 11-Feb-17 19:31:21

See I want one that doesn't cling to me or the outer garment. A top-half slip. Cotton elastane wouldn't work. Nor would polyester. Or any sort of jersey.

TeethDrama Sat 11-Feb-17 19:54:39

Dulci you probably need just a silky cami top?

Dulcimena Sat 11-Feb-17 20:00:05

Yes, I think you're right. M&s often have them in colours, i just want a cream/nude one though. Online is probably the way to go isn't it.

Thanks Everything, will try it out.
Dulcimena, yes, a top-half slip is exactly what I want!

silky camisoles ,M&S has some silk ones also.

Uniqlo airism vests are good, they are fitted though.

I adore my Vero Moda ones. Cost about £10 on their website. They are awesome.

everythingsgoingsouth Sun 12-Feb-17 16:57:22

this is my thread !

DelphiniumBlue Sun 12-Feb-17 19:55:16

Thank you!

DelphiniumBlue Sun 19-Feb-17 18:38:20

I finally bought a silk CAMI from M &S, and a full slip which I have cut down to hip- length - so its quite loose around the middle. Thanks Dulcimena for the inspiration!
I tried the cool comfort vests, but even 2 sizes bigger than my normal size, they were very clingy and uncomfortable.
