5 Variety of Styles for Wearing a Halftee to Stay Modest

Have you even ever heard of a “Halftee?” It’s an actual brand of tops that are meant to provide coverage to be modest without the bulk.

Here are the ways that I thought that my halftees would help in my wardrobe.

1-Under a Wrap Top/Dress

2-With Spaghetti Straps

3-Coverage under a Sheer Top

4-With Crochet Items

5-And another way I struggle with tops shown on the blog post.

Under a Wrap Top/Dress

While wrap tops and dresses are touted as universally flattering, for those of us with “girls” they can also be revealing. I’ve covered this topic before in the cooler months showing 5 different modest ways to wear the wrap design.

With Spaghetti Straps

If you like spaghetti strap tops but still want to wear a normal bra, then this could be the answer for you.

Coverage under a Sheer Top

Sheer tops are definitely a go to in the hotter weather Since I wore the pink halftee under this top, you really don’t notice the extra layer.

With Crochet Items

Any open weave like crochet may feel too revealing, so an added layer can be key.

I wanted to show you how the the halftee looks not being covered. You can see it just covers the bottom band of my bra. It's meant to be somewhat snug around the bottom band so it stays put.

Make sure to click over to the blog to see the last way I styled my Halftees for the summer.

The Deets about Halftees

These t-shirts are made in a huge variety of styles, colors and SIZES (we are talking up to a 6X) including young girls sizes also. Just like I’ve shown in the examples above, it’s about providing coverage for the side boob, your cleavage or even your arms. All without more material on the midriff.

The arm lengths range from sleeveless to long sleeves. There are v-necks, scoop necks and even turtlenecks. And there are different materials offered.

Insider tip: These are made without a label at the neck, so you can turn them around to have a higher or lower neckline.

I am only showing two options here. My halftee in white is the basic cap sleeve. The pink one is the boyfriend halftee in blush pink.

The site occasionally offers other clothing pieces to pair with your halftee, so make sure to look around.

Don’t forget to use my code JTOUCH20 to get 20% off. I always rationalize that it’s like getting free shipping. Also, I was gifted these two halftees but was not paid to write about them. And I will receive a small commission if you purchase using my link or code, so thank you.

Could you make your own halftee?

If you are comfortable with a sewing machine, I could imagine that you could make your own tee like this. Just take a longer one, cut it off and add a band under the girls.

    wow! I have a big box of wonderful shirts that I cannot no longer wear. My belly just got too large over the years for pants and skirts, This will work wonderfully with a loose fitting dress . thank you.

      I'm so glad you can make them work!! You should create a tutorial on how you did it!! I bet that would help a lot of women!

    I really like the idea of wearing a halftee under a top or dress that I don’t think I’d wear otherwise. Nice since I have cute tops and dresses that I haven’t worn in some time. Thanks for the tip.

      The funny thing is when I lived in a colder climate, I didn't think they would be helpful because I wanted the longer camis. But now living in Arizona, they are exactly what I need and love!!
