There are so many amazing outfits that can be put together these days for women. Floral is still in, and maxi dresses are still easily available. Jeans and a tunic shirt, or a skirt with a fabulous top – there are so many different ways to style an outfit and feel cute, put together, and modest!
The key to these outfits is making sure you have the right layering items and that you know how to layer under dresses and shirts. I find that there’s an endless amount of clothing options out there; you just need to know how to make the dress or shirt fit your modesty standards.
And while we’re talking about this, let’s just put aside the word modesty for a minute. If that feels old fashioned to you, don’t use the word. Let’s just call it respecting your body. If you work at a desk job all day long, do you really want to bend over constantly and show people your cleavage? Some women might purposely want this, but I know there are lots of ladies out there who would love to not show as much as they do, but they don’t know how to avoid it.
Most of the tank tops and cami’s I find in the stores are not nearly high enough to cover cleavage. I’ve almost given up looking because it’s so hard to find (and finding a maternity tank top high enough feels impossible!).
That’s why I love Halftees and why I’m always wearing them! I made a short video for you all to show you how to use three different types of Halftees for easy layering solutions under low cut items, sleeveless or spaghetti strap clothes, and you can see how fantastic they are for pregnant and breast-feeding mothers as well!
(Side note – Sean and I get a good laugh when we watch this video – I was pretty animated over Halftees! Apparently I have some strong emotions behind layering solutions!)
Use a Short Sleeve Halftee under a sleeveless or spaghetti strap dress. This is especially awesome in the summer heat! I also love how you don’t have the bunching up of a shirt or cami underneath your dress.
Dresses or Tops
What about those dresses or tops that have a v-neck or wrap front? You can easily wear them with a Halftee Tank or a Halftee Basic, and can even breastfeed a baby using the Halftee! Just lift up the Halftee, unsnap your nursing bra and you are good to go! I’ve used these for years now and it’s made breastfeeding so much easier. You actually save a lot of money because you don’t need to buy a lot of specialty nursing clothes that are so expensive.
I’m always surprised with how many people say they love the idea of the Halftee, they think it will work out well, but they never buy one because it seems expensive to them.
Do you know just how many outfits you can put together with one Halftee tank, and one short sleeve Halftee?! Get one in white or black (the color depends on what you wear more of) and suddenly your options are endless! This helps you create more of a capsule wardrobe if you like that sort of thing (I love the idea but I also love variety!).
Consider it an investment that will last you for several years!
