Tanks and Camis

Tanks and Camis

Before, camis or camisoles are worn as a sleepwear or an undergarment. It may or may not be held up by shoulder straps, may be cropped and look like a cami-bra, or may be down to the waist. You can wear it with or without a bra. Over the years, these once worn as undergarment have become cami tops, which are now no different from tanks or tank tops. With these characteristics, camis are now worn as tanks and they are actually the current trend among young women.


Even if you are skinny, chubby, or whatever body type, you can still wear tanks and camisoles. However, you have to make sure you choose what perfectly fits you. Below are the factors to consider.


Fabric Used


You may be uncomfortable or allergic to certain types of fabric. It is thus very important to identify the fabric used in the cami or tank you are considering. The most popular fabrics used are cotton, satin and silk. Other materials that are also used include spandex, lycra, nylon and combination of these three. If you want to achieve a luxurious look, then go for those made with satin. It is a sleek and very smooth material and can make you look really luxurious. A silk camisole is excellent for both sleeping and outdoor walk. On the other hand, if you have sensitive skin, choose cotton and other natural fibers because they are friendly to the skin.


Strap Used


The type of straps used is important because it will affect how you style your outfit for the day. There are three different types. These are fixed spaghetti strap, fixed wide strap, and adjustable spaghetti strap. The fixed wide strap is advantageous because it offers added support, is comfortable to wear, and covers your bra straps. The fixed spaghetti strap is advantageous because it becomes unnoticeable or not visible when you wear other pieces for layering. Lastly, the adjustable strap is advantageous because it can fit all body types. It has slide adjustments, which make the tank or cami wearable even if you have a slender or chubby built.  


Camis, such as lace camisole, were once used only as sleepwear. Now, these are used as exercise apparel, fashion top, maternity wear, and layering piece. It is becoming increasingly popular because of the comfort it provides. It is also versatile, which means you can wear it in different occasions or activities. Just choose the right one based on the factors above.
