Since my Cami NYC purchases from last week are on sale I wanted to get a quick post up giving you my first impressions. I’ll do a propper try-on post later on but wanted to let you know the fit. They are perfect
I purchased both of these in a size large. That was all they had, but had size XL been available for sale I would have picked that up instead. I’m a size 10 in Lululemon generally, but with items like this that don’t have a ton of stretch, I would size up to a 12. The CAMI NYC site goes
The fit is good, still nice and flowy and roomy at the waist thanks to the
I’m self-conscious about my bigger lats and so I’m always happy when a tank is cut high enough that it covers this area. The one negative is that this tank will show your bra straps thanks to the spaghetti strap so even if you wear a racerback bra, you will see the straps. Your options are to wear your bra despite the straps showing (I don’t mind this if it’s a nice bra), wear a strapless bra or go braless.
The one area where I would have preferred the XL over the L is in the upper back. It doesn’t feel tight at all, but the material wants to fold a little bit across my bra band. Silk has 20% stretch so I am sure the fold is just a temporary thing as the material relaxes to my shape. I’m currently up a bit in weight so I think this size would have been 100% right at my usual weight, and I hope it will fit perfectly once I’ve dropped the winter extras.
As you can see, I purchased two different styles. One is the racerback charmeuse style and the other is the cadence style with regular straps. I thought I would prefer the cut of the regular straps but actually, I like them both. I think the racerback is a little more modest in the back because it comes up higher at the arms.
These tanks are 100% quality silk so they do require dry cleaning. I’ve washed silk tanks at home before very carefully and they’ve been fine but I wouldn’t risk it with these. The luster of the sapphire charmeuse silk is so beautiful that it would be a shame to lose that. Since I’m doing a lot of thrifting lately for myself and for my Poshmark store, I spend a lot of time at the dry cleaners already so I don’t mind the higher maintenance
I love these tanks so much that I can definitely see myself buying more as they go on
I specifically purchased the sapphire cami to go with this amazing Sezane Cardigan that I thrifted a few weeks ago. This is my favorite thrift pickup so far and I initially grabbed it to sell on my poshmark closet. I ended up keeping it for myself though. It’s a medium but fits perfectly. I still can’t believe I found something so beautiful in a brand I’ve been wanting to try for so long. I’ve worn it a lot so far with a plain tee shirt underneath but it really needed a pretty feminine cami
