We here at The Fashionable Housewife are always looking for the next best fashion accessory, trick and tips to looking our best. Enter the new Jacqui Racerback Demi Camisole from Second Base. To say I was excited to try this out is an understatement. When you want a little extra coverage, layer a second base demi cami over your bra and voila! Instant Layering and that’s no lie.
Why go to Second Base? Worn over your everyday or special occasion bra, this clever demi (cropped) camisole is quite literally your “second base.” Jacqui gives you the convenient function & coverage of a layering piece for that perfect racerback dress, tank, v-neck sweater, tunic and more – without the added bulk. Wear with any racerback look to get the coverage you need in the front, with added confidence of a sleek, no-VBL silhouette in the back. Don’t need the coverage but still wish to update your look? Wear the Jacqui racerback as a versatile layering piece to instantly enhance any outfit, from office to cocktails to leisure and beyond. Made in the USA of a siro micro-modal & spandex blend, Jacqui and other Second Base demi camisoles are silky smooth to the touch – so comfortable you’ll forget you’re wearing them!
So sometimes a great concept doesn’t translate into a great reality. Not the case here, my friends. I got the Jacqui in Black and WAS.NOT.DISAPPOINTED. Being a busty girl, I am always paranoid about an appropriate amount of cleavage in the workplace and in public. When you have large ladies, they sometimes speak out of turn. With the Jacqui, I got the coverage that I usually get with another cami but without the added bulk. The demi cami is absolutely super soft and upon doing a little research found that it’s eco-friendly as well. How can a girl go wrong? I am really looking forward to wearing this under dresses and lower cut shirts that I never quite feel comfortable in. I am thinking that the Second Base Demi Cami is one of the best things to happen to my wardrobe in a long time.
Retailing for $30.00, Jacqui comes available in sizes XS-XL (cup sizes A-F) in classic black, white or ivory. It’s already in stores ladies, including Neiman Marcus nationwide, select Bloomingdale’s and ShopSecondBase.com.
