Stay Modest With Cleavitz

by Guest Contributor

I know I can’t be the only one with that sweater — you know the one. It’s the one that you bought because you loved it, but after you got it home and put it on, you realized that it showed just a little too much cleavage. You’ve tried pinning it so that it laid differently, only to be disappointed so you banished it to be worn only at certain functions.

I have a couple sweaters that I wear a black camisole underneath to preserve my modesty. The cami frequently bunches up, creating lines beneath my sweater. It also slides down as the day goes on, giving me a little less cover-up than I’d originally intended. I still use it because it’s the best solution that I have, but I wish that I had something different. Well, now I do. I was recently sent two Cleavitz half-tops to try.


Cleavitz comes in an array of colors. I was sent a turquoise Cleavitz and a black lace Cleavitz, which is nude material covered with lace atop it. Prices start around $29.95 and up. Sizes range from  XS, S, M, L, XL, and 2X.

About Cleavitz

Cleavitz® is an ultra-comfortable half-top that gives women of all bust sizes the confidence to wear the stylish, low-cut fashions in the marketplace today. Cool, comfortable and fashionable… that’s Cleavitz®. Cleavitz® come in 3 styles: Cotton, Shimmer, and Lace.
Layer it… Leave it… Love it…


What I love

Cleavitz are made from cotton and Lycra, and it is their blend of Lycra that keeps the Cleavitz from slipping. I can vouch for the fact that I wore my Cleavitz all day, and it did truly stay where I put it, whether I adjusted it high to be very modest or lowered it some. It was comfortable to wear, as it isn’t so constrictive as a sports bra – especially since there is no elastic at the bottom of the Cleavitz.

I really like that they aren’t camis, which means that they don’t bunch up around my waist as I move throughout the day. It keeps a slim profile under what I’m wearing, which I appreciate.

The lace and shimmer Cleavitz are a great concept to dress up outfits, as well. I remember more than one suit I used to wear to work that left me just a little uncomfortable and diving to my closet to try to find something to help. These would be a great addition to a working wardrobe to slide under suit jackets, especially the ivory or charcoal shimmer Cleavitz.

I like the plain black one. I think it would go with everything. :)


25 Tonya M March 1, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Oh my goodness! This was invented for me! I have been known to be a bit of a prude when it comes to showing my skin… it’s funny, really because my sister is the exact opposite- she wants to show it off for everyone! I constantly see shirts I desperately want to wear but can’t because I *hate* layering tanks underneath my clothes. I would love to win the plain cotton black or white Cleavitz. Either would work with my whole wardrobe. I’m crossing my fingers that I win this one!!


26 Lori March 2, 2012 at 9:02 am

This would be perfect for me as well, I’d go with a soft white one.
