If your recovery was anything like mine, you likely didn’t have the energy or cognitive bandwidth to figure out what to wear every day. I often wore the same outfit for days at a time (which also cut down on laundry) because getting dressed took a ton of energy. I basically lived in comfy yoga pants, tank tops, and sweatshirts.
I remember reading the Neurologist’s report that said something like, “patient was well dressed and presented good hygiene.” I had to laugh, because I had the same clothes I had been wearing for about three or 4 days, and hadn’t showered in just as long. But I guess they see what they want to see, right? But I digress …
I recently discovered a brand of tanks that I am absolutely in love with: Skinnytees. Launched in 2009 by fashion industry veteran Linda Schlesinger Wagner, Skinnytees was created to quell women’s most essential need and hardest-fought fight — the search for the “perfect top!” The clothing line began with just a handful of colors and one simple but perfect one-size-fits-most camisole. Soft, seamless, and fitted, Skinnytees shape, flatter, and frame the body whether worn alone or layered. It stays put and keeps you covered when bending over or reaching up!
“Skinnytees was created to be worn by ALL women, ALL sizes, ALL ages to feel great at all times with a hug. Wear it. Feel it. Love it.” —Linda Schlesinger –Founder
I appreciate the fact that Skinnytees come in plus-size and have a light compression to smooth out my midsection. There are no seams and no tags to scratch and bother me, and they are extra long and don’t ride up, and are perfect for layering.
My favorite Skinnytees tank has a built-in bra — because who wants to wear a bra when you want to be comfy? My only complaint? The built-in bra tank only comes in black — I wish it came in EVERY color!
During the month of October, Skinnytees will be holding their “Breast Sale Ever” to support breast cancer survivors. Select colors and styles will be 30% off with code: BREASTSALE30. Additionally all Breast Sale Ever sales will be matched by Skinnytees and donated to a breast cancer survivor. www.skinnytees.com
