Halftee

Layering Top

More Layers, Less Bulk

If you like the look of layering but don’t want all the bulk, this is the t-shirt for you -- half of it anyway.

Amanda Barker came up with the idea for the Halftee after cutting a few of her own shirts. She wanted to get rid of the fabric at her midriff, which wouldn’t be seen once she added a top layer. Amanda realized she was onto something, and today Halftees are available in a range of wardrobe-extending styles and colors.

If you’ve ever invested in what seemed like a great article of clothing, but it turned out to
be less ready-to-wear than you thought, a Halftee might be just the thing to make it more wearable. It’s also a quick way to make your favorite clothes more versatile. If you have a top or dress that’s a little too revealing for business attire, you can cover more skin with a Halftee. You can take a sundress from summer to spring by adding a sleeved Halftee under it. Voila, no more bare shoulders.

A Halftee stays put, and it hugs your body in the right places so you’re comfortably contained. There are no tags, and it’s reversible so you can play with different necklines to get just the right look. It’s a hardworking tee that gets the job done with half the fabric.

    Hi there,

    I am not too sure about the size of the Tee, as most of the times its medium for me, but sometimes Large fits me. I don't wear too loose or too tight tops. So if I order for medium one and if it doesn't fit me well, can I get it exchanged for another size ? Please clarify. I want to order 1 tee with 3/4th sleeves, 1 with long and 1 lace tee. Please help.

    Thank you,

    Kal

    @Kal: Hi Kal, see Amanda's comment below about sizing. If you get your tee home and the size won't work for you, you can absolutely return or exchange it within 30 days of purchase. You will be responsible for the shipping charges, though. Here is a size chart that I'm pulling over from the details tab to give you a better idea for the size that will work best for you.



    Amanda suggests going up a size for the lace version.

    This is a godsend for older ladies like me. There comes a time in life when you get a little excess chubbiness around the underarms and forearms. Exercise may not take it all away. Also, we are feeling very warm all of the time due to menopause so having a half shirt is far cooler than a whole one.

    The news of this needs to be put up on Vibrantnation.com asap!!!!

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Halftees fit very true to size. If a medium is the size you go to, then get a medium. Here is the twist. The lace however I would suggest going up a size. The lace is obviously much different fabric, so we have found that our customers who go up a size in the lace have a better fit. You will love your halftees!!

    I forgot to ask about what type of fabric it is and if the basic half tee's arm opening will be on the smaller side for the sake of coverage.

    The fabric is a modal/cotton/spandex on the 3/4 and cotton/spandex on the long sleeve and basic. Yes the arm holes fit snug yet are very comfortable. Thanks!

    I love the idea! Though black and white are basic staples, would you be expanding to other colors? Do you sell them in stores ( which gives the option of seeing them before buying them)? THanks!

    @samantha,

    We are in some independent boutiques but we hope that you will buy them directly from Daily Grommet who has shared my story so wonderfully with you today. Also as far as sizing they fit very true to size, so what ever size you typically buy in a shirt is the size you want in a halftee. Thanks for shopping with us today!!

    Nice job Amanda! I just ordered two of these, as you have helped solve a few problems for me. One is bulk layering, and when I wore a tight spandex top to help solve that problem, it would roll up on me eventually and I would have to keep pulling it down. The other is the covering of the "runaway underarm" so many of us women have and want to hide. Thank you!

    I LOVE this item. I bought the white, 3/4 sleeves and now ordering the black. I’m sure I will be ordering others. This garment is very, very soft, very comfortable and I want to wear it all the time. It stays in place perfectly. Great, versatile garment. I am glad the person that developed it is right across the lake from me, I am in Saratoga Springs. Thanks Amanda.

    Thanks so much for the wonderful words of encouragement!! The 3/4 sleeve is one of my favorite styles (if I can have a favorite). I know you will be back for more. Halftees will change the way you shop and dress. Thanks for the support!!

    This is the most helpful idea! I didn't even realize I needed this, but as soon as I saw it, I realized it solved a problem for me. Ordering all three styles!
