Ashmarlin Layering Shirt Giveaway!
Several years ago, all of the women's clothing designers in the world got together and came up with a plan.
Specifically, they unanimously decided to pretend that all women have the same body shape and wear D cups. They also agreed that all of the cute blouses that they manufactured would be a) completely see through or b) would be cut so low that they only look good on women with implants and c) would pooch attractively in the stomach and underarm regions.
As much as I hate to layer, it is a fact of life. I've searched high and low for the perfect (under) shirt and have yet to find anything that meets all my needs: durable, fitted, breathable, stylish, and, since I practically live on the Equator, lightweight.
Last week, I got a package in the mail from Ashmarlin, a new clothing company started by a clothing designer at Nike. Having tried everything on the market, I was skeptical of their claims. However, I can honestly say that the shirt that they sent me has far exceeded my expectations. The quality is superb. The fabric is super soft. It doesn't bunch or do anything weird. It provides full coverage, but you can wear it by itself as well (ie. the white shirt is not sheer). It's long enough to tuck into your pants, but not so long that you feel like you're wearing a dress. Me like.
