Santa Monica manufacturer, JL Horn Apparel, has launched a new line of cropped camisoles. Second Base Demi-Camis solve the age old problem of too much cleavage by providing extra coverage where you need it most. Where traditional camis can cause bulk and bunching under your favorite low cut tops and wrap dresses, Second Base is cropped to fit just over your bra. Lightweight and comfortable, Second Base is the perfect piece for layering. This seamless and breathable essential is made of a Siro Micro Modal/Spandex blend not found in traditional camisoles.
Second Base is the brainchild of CEO, Jennie Horn, who desired to be both fashionable and professional. Rather than trade one for the other, Jennie found a way to maximize the options in her closet by creating this innovative camisole. She’s quoted as saying, “I realized that a camisole with less fabric would allow me to wear my favorite pieces at work without feeling self-conscious or dealing with the extra bulkiness of a regular camisole.” I agree! I, too, find myself facing this dilemma. Fortunately, Second Base has four solutions!
Sarah is similar to a classic camisole. With thin, 1/4″ adjustable straps, it provides flexibility in the amount of coverage. The wide-strapped Meredith, on the other hand, is the perfect solution for covering up bra straps when you want to keep them hidden. This style is similar to a tank top and has a higher back for additional coverage. Marlo, modeled after men’s undershirts, is a ribbed tank top suitable for wear under most dresses and tops. This cut is a little less conservative and may show your straps. Perfect if you are going for a sexier look! The last style, Brittany, is classically designed like Sarah offering the adjustable 1/4″ straps, but also features a lace trim at the neckline for additional styling.
Second Base will debut this fall at specialty retailers including Town Shop and La Petite Coquette in Manhattan, but can also be purchased online at the Second Base website. Prices range between $29 and $31 for sizes XS – 4X in Black, White, and Ivory basics as well as a variety of fashion colors including Red, Brown, Charcoal, Navy, and Violet.
