Picking The Perfect Tee For Your Body Type
Being able to feel confident in your clothes consists of a few things, two being: (1) having the right pieces in your wardrobe that allow you to mix and match your clothes and show off your personal style and (2) having pieces in your wardrobe that flatter your figure.

Which neckline works best for you?
