Tunic Style and Covering My Undergarments

Tunic Style and Covering My Undergarments

I am not a fan of having my undergarments show through my clothes and frequently white pants can be the worse offenders. Even nude seems to show under some clothes. That’s where tunic tops come to my rescue. I love the long over lean look that tunics give and the comfort of having garments flow around my torso, rather than cling.

Last weekend we ran loads of errands, went to an event at a friends house and celebrated Mother’s Day with our favorite little fellow, my grandson. I didn’t know he was coming to see me so when I opened the door and he was standing there with a bouquet of Tulips, I literally squealed with delight.

I wore this Tianello tunic from Purple Poppy with slim fitting white pants that need that longer layer of coverage for modesty.Tianello Asbury tunic


The tunic is long enough to cover what I want to be covered without adding extra bulk. It’s a soft jersey knit with a round neckline, 3/4 sleeves, and a fantastic texture.

The flattering A-line silhouette flows down to a gently arched hemline with handkerchief pointed hem. Its upper thigh length means it easily covers the top of leggings and skinny pants.

The gently distressed texture and shading in this top add character to the simple lines and make it perfect for travel. Tianello is also proudly made in the USA.

I think this top runs generously and for reference, I am wearing a small. If it came in xs, I could have probably worn that size! It’s machine wash warm, tumble dry low. I love easy care clothes for summer!

It’s very lightweight in a pretty gray/blue that will be terrific all summer long. I wore it with very small earrings, a statement necklace, and a bold bracelet.

    I’ve never worn a tunic & I’m wondering if it’s a style I should try. I’m 5’3″ & shaped like a triangle, my hips are wider than my shoulders.
    I’m wondering if a tunic would just make my shape look more obvious? I’d appreciate your opinion.

      It make make your hips look wider. You’d have to try in different proportions to see which you like. I’d keep top and bottom I. The same color range.

    It took me a while to start wearing tunics and skinny pants/leggings and I love the comfort! Not to mention they hide the rolls and pouches we develop with age.
    There are various on-line US companies that sell nice clothes however I live in Canada and the exchange/ shipping make them more expensive than I can afford.
    New to your blog, I am inspired by your posts and clothing suggestions.

      Welcome, Judith! They do hide lots of things:) I do remember that exchange rate from when we lived on Vancouver Island. It’s a bit of a beast!!

    I agree, and not just with white. I wish people would look at themselves from the back, if possible before going out. I often see women and men too in a stylish outfit ruined by visible panty lines or underwear too tight. Though a colored bra strap showing can look really good.

      Most people would benefit from a quick peek in a full length mirror and a rear view mirror:)

    White jeans! They never show through. The worst is to look like Mrs. Thurston Howell.
    BTW, the New York Times had an article today about Brigitte Macron, the new first lady of France. There was a photo of her in leather pants, saying she was breaking taboos. Well, let me tell you that in my little city in the south of France, last winter I saw a woman wearing leather pants and pushing a walker. And she looked like a million bucks. I am sick to death of body shaming and ageism. Style and taste transcend that.

      They absolutely do!! Why people feel entitled to criticize a woman’s garment choices is a puzzle to me. The only taboos should be what we impose on ourselves based on our own taste!

      Hi Judy! The sandals are available here- http://rstyle.me/n/cnjkx239zw. I had my cobbler remove 1/2 ” from the heel which made them even more comfortable!
