Kathleen Kirkwood Shoulder Sculpted Smoothing Tank
Bought my first one in x-large. A little too large but I kept it for every day wear. Turned around and ordered two more in large (all black). I have many similar tanks but none are as perfect as this one. Love everything about it...especially the small shoulder pads and the slimming effect. I would order more if there were other colors. It is extremely comfortable too..once on you wouldn't even know it was there. I would love Kathleen to bring this back in a variety of colors...I would order one of each!
I love this cami. I've had it for a couple of weeks and want to wear it every day. It's smooth and sweet, feels good, and I'm fussy about camis.
SO SO SMOOTH!!
Was on the fence about this tank. When I received I tried it on and immediately loved
the fit. It was smooth, went on easily. Love the shoulders as well. Not too much for
a petite gal...also padding in the shoulders whittles the waist.
Wonderfully made. Neck line too high and shoulder straps too thick and close to neck to fit under my summer clothes. Just fine for Fall or Winter when you're more covered or good for air conditioning.
Just what I needed, bring more!
Love this little cami for the shoulder pads and stay put strip at the bottom. I am short-waisted and wear a 1X. This camisole does just the right amount of smoothing, doesn't flatten your chest, and adds a little shoulder padding. I'm one of those that never gave up my shoulder pads but these are a little more modest, more on trend than my leftovers from the 80s :) Please bring this back in a beige and in other colors.
Love this tank
I have two of these tanks and one of the strap tanks. Love these and will be ordering another color. I am tall and size medium. They really stay in place and do NOT roll. This is a great product to smooth our muffins!
This is nice material, fits like a glove, except the shoulders slip down, do not stay in place. Like most people who would order this garment, my shoulders are narrow and this garment is made for someone with rather wide shoulders. Rather expensive for something that is uncomfortable to wear.
This is an ok layering piece, but I wouldn't turn to it for shaping. I ordered my regular size and I think it is a little loose. For those reviewers who mentioned it rolling up, that is usually a sign of a bad fit, usually too small. This has a barely-there grip strip along the bottom hem, but it isn't going to overcome the physics of a tight-fitting slimmer. I found it a bit smushing across the chest - more like a minimizer than complete flattening. It's woven with loose "cups", but it isn't enough room to allow the bustier of us to be full. The shoulder shaping is super soft and subtle, just a little help to even out the curves. The scalloping is a little cheesy - very arts and craft scissor looking, but, theoretically, it isn't meant to be seen. It ok for very light smoothing or something cozy under an itchy sweater.
Rides Up to Bra-line!!!
Concept is great - execution not so much. I have very narrow shoulders and these pads sit way too close to my neck making them useless. And, more importantly, the fabric is so slick that one step and the bottom rides up to my waist; second step the bottom is around the bra-line completely eliminating the smoothing effect of the tank.
If there was some way to put some kind of grippers around the bottom, it might - I say might- stay down. Too late to return ,so it goes off to a charity store.
Coming back for more. Great shoulder pads...I call them "armani" pads as so subtle and thin, not dallas pads at all. Just a gentle lift which helps under t-shirts and thin cotton tops. Think scallops @ top of the garment are a plus. If they peek out they look nice. Hate camis where cheap lace peeks out. Don't believe that you can only hand wash. I put in gentle cycle then hang dry. I ordered up one size.
What a difference
What a difference this tank made in the way my clothes fit. I am 5'2 and 120 lbs. I ordered the small. I thought it might be a little tight since I am small shouldered and a little busty for my size. But, it was perfect, and made me feel better about myself, since I am now 60 and my small shoulders are starting to slightly round. I am very happy with this product, although I thought it was a bit pricey, since with s&h and tax, it was close to $50.
I would like to ask Kathleen if she could make the necklines slightly higher. I am also short waist ed an all round necks are a little too low for me. I wouldn't mind showing a little more skin, but although I am in good shape for my age. the cracks are starting to show. LOL
This is a great little item...the perfect slimmer, undershirt, camisole...I love this! It is so comfortable and lightweight but it slims your waist and belly. The very slight shoulder "pads" also help to create a slimmer look. Perfect for under tee shirts. The chest area does not compress your breasts so don't worry about the pancake flat look. And there is a bit of rubber on the bottom to help keep it in place and not ride up. Again, this is a great item. The nude is great under white summer tees
