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.

i found a great company that sells just the coverup tops. you'll have to check out their site to see exactly what i mean. it is the best thing out there. i'd been searching for a year for something decent and they even come in little girl's sizes. (my daughter is 8 and she wears a size SM) which is perfect because the girl's clothing is getting pretty skanky..i bought my little girl some coverups up for summer and now she can put on a cute tank and be totally covered!! seriously check it out.. you won't be disappointed!!

I was excited to try these out, but 35 dollars? Can any layering t-shirt possibly be worth that?

I'd also like to add that all clothing designers decided that all women are tall requiring me to take up any dress I buy by at least 3 inches in the shoulder so that the bust is actually on my breasts and not hanging around below my belly button. Frustrating beyond all belief!

I would like to try these shirts. My daughters particularly like layering. Thanks for the tips on great sites.

And I thought that designers had decided everyone is a C cup (DD here)!
