Singlet tops

Postby zoeh » Mon Feb 26, 2007 7:06 pm

Ok this might seem a bit mundane but does anyone know where I can buy singlet tops with thin straps where the straps do not stretch?

I have bought so many singlet tops from Body (which is a beautiful shop) and all of them have stretched... its really annoying because they have nice simple designs and nice colours and are not low cut

I have a few singlet tops from Bonds but they are soooo ragged and stretched and they are a bit lower cut

and I have a singlet top from Berlei which has a great inbuilt bra thing but again it is a bit low cut for my liking...

Just simple plain thin strap singlets with a nice cut to them and are longish... (not midriff or sort of finish before the top of my pants)

Any recommendations?

crossroads, i'll check it out

these days particularly with dance class, i find myself wrapping my singlet straps around my bra strap so my singlet doesnt fall down, it can be a bit uncomfortable..

i can see what u mean. have u tried tank tops? the tops are thicker and stay in place better.

Yeah i have a couple but I like the look of thin strap ones

To be honest most of the time I wear a thin strap singlet then a tank top over the top. Normally that way the thin strap singlet shows up at the bottom because generally they are longer... so the thin strap one covers the bottom part more and the tank covers the top part - where the thin strap one moves...

does that make sense?

it would be nice if i could just find one singlet that fits nice and doesnt go out of shape

I also sort of find that the tank tops enhance the bust a bit more, maybe its because the thinner strap singlets bring more attention to the shoulder area, which is where I would prefer attention to be on...

ah ok so its more for aesthetic reasons as opposed to comfort. have u tried those belly belts- theyre these tube things that you wear around ur waist. a lot of dancers are wearing them these days

Try Rivers Zoeh - they have great quality clothing in there - and it is relatively cheap in the way of pricing for what you get.
Every day I am getting thinner and thinner.....
