Many of you saw my Millennial Moms video about How to Dress a Postpartum Body during the summer, and ever since have been asking about those basic layering shirts I mention in that video… well, when you ask, I deliver! I made a video all about how I style my favorite layering shirts from Heirloom Clothing to help answer your questions, and show you how I do it! Lucky for us, Heirloom has made a special discount code just for us… HINT, it's a 30% off promo code on their essentials shirts, and it will seriously save you a BUNDLE. Well, enough of this, let's get to the video!
See how I style basic layering shirts! Watch the video online, or click and watch below –
In case you don't have time to watch the video right now (or you're laying in bed, browsing the entire internet, and don't want to wake up that person sleeping next to you like a normal human… What? Just me?) I thought I'd list out my tips for your reading pleasure!
I am 5′ 9″, and have a long torso, so basically no shirt on Earth is long enough for me to feel comfortable without one of my layering shirts. Wearing basic layering shirts under my everyday clothes keeps everything “tucked in”. I can bend over to pick up kiddos and not worry that I'm flashing my rear-end, underwear, or love handles for the world to see. BAM!
I like to always have some kind of sleeve, but not all shirts I like come with them. I often buy tank tops, and add a layering shirt underneath to create instant sleeves for any shirt!
SHEER SHIRTS, NO MORE
I can't tell you how many times I have found a cute shirt, but been hesitant to buy because it's either sheer, or see through! I realized that throwing on a simple layering tee underneath any sheer or see-through shirt makes it instantly more modest! I like being able to wear what I like, and not feel like I'm putting my bra on display. This does the trick every single time!
FITTED UNDER BULKY
I am a huge fan of layering my basic shirts under bulkier items in my closet. I don't like to layer bulky, over bulky… because, well… it makes you look bulky! By wearing a form-fitting shirt under my flowier vests, or sweaters, I can keep a feminine silhouette without adding too much bulk!
SMOOTH THINGS OUT
Now, these shirts aren't going to bring you down a dress size, but what they will do is smooth out any bumps, or lumps that may peek through on a form-fitting dress. It makes me feel more comfortable knowing there is an extra layer in there keeping everything where it belongs, and smoothing me out in all the right places.
