Choose a Cami Instead of Shapewear: If you only need a little compression to look slim, then wear a camisole with a tighter fit in microfiber, plus a little padding in the bust region to make your waist look skinnier in comparison.
Sleek, fitted and impossibly elegant, this Dolce & Gabbana CamillaCami and Briefs set is made for the woman who appreciates a clean silhouette, a demure hint of girly charm (thanks to the discreet ruffles) and a bold color.
The extra layer the cami provides is usually enough to prevent any embarrassing see-through situations - however, just to make sure, it's always a good idea to look at your outfit in a brightly lit room before you head outdoors.
Women's Health Magazine says the C9 by Champion Seamless Cami Sports Bra ($14 - $17) is a winner for A and B cups during high impact workouts (like those that involve running and jumping) for ladies with small busts.
If you're hoping to wear a dressy top that isn't too heavy, a lace cotton cami is a great alternative to a beaded or sequined style - both of these add plenty of weight and can feel uncomfortable on some women.
