Utah Local: HalfTees

This is a great one because all of you can buy these if you live in Utah or not. I bought these a few months ago and didn't get around to posting this until now.

I don't know about you, but I have such a hard time finding a shirt that I can wear all on its own. The style the last few years has been to layer and many of the shirts that aren't made specifically for layering underneath are too low cut for me. So I have had to wear a t-shirt or a tank under the shirt. I've been annoyed with that for a while now. Some of the t-shirt rolls up under the other shirt and I have to pull it down over and over. Or if it's under a dress, you can see the bunched up end of the t-shirt that's under the dress. Plus I already have unwanted bulk around my tummy so I don't want an extra layer of anything. That's why I was so excited to try a Half Tee when I saw them online.  
They are so great! They fit me snuggly and stay in place and no extra bulk. And just a little thing, but something else I like--they don't have tags. The company and size info is stamped onto the inside of the shirt.

The website sells the basic cap sleeve and the long sleeve Halftees in white, cream, chocolate and pink.
I really like the pink even though it doesn't look too pink here. (I asked Sabrina to take a photo of me and she cut my head off in a few and the others were blurry.)                  

But if you'd like to see them in person or have more selection, check out the kiosk at the University Mall in Orem (in front of Victoria's Secret, near Nordstrom). At the mall, they also have 3/4 length sleeves and boyfriend sleeves. At $14 for 1 or $26 for 2 for the basic, I think it's an awesome deal. You can get a few colors and styles and use them with so many shirts or dresses. (Just so's you know...I'm not being compensated for this post. I just thought I'd share it in case you hadn't tried them before.)


  1. very cool! i'm so glad to hear someone else's perspective on these. ever since i saw something similar at hapari, i've wondered if the concept was worth it's salt. now i may have to give 'em a try. (:

  2. What a great idea, and by the way, you are looking very skinny!

  3. What is a boyfriend sleeve? Can't figure that out.

  4. Mom, that wrinkly white shirt at the top is called a boyfriend sleeve, at HalfTees at least. It's longer than a normal t-shirt length. Then the black one you can't see very well is the basic cap sleeve.

  5. I haven't seen these, but I love the layer's shirts and the shade shirts. I wear them under everything. I love the fact that I can wear shirts that look nice and are still modest. I don't wear them layered by themselves because I don't think I look good in them. You are looking great!!!

  6. When I first looked at the picture Valerie I thought "What? That is immodest". Ha ha
    But after seeing how you can wear it under other shirts for that layering effect I can see how it is a fabulous idea!! I had never heard of them.
