Achieving a figure that feels and looks good on you can be hard. The secret is to find the right clothing for your body type, and smocked tube tops are just what you need. This article will discuss how smocked tube tops work, as well as why they’re so perfect for achieving a flattering figure!
A smocked tube top is a garment that has vertical seams, known as smocking. When you wear it, the fabric stretches around your body to create an hourglass shape. This type of clothing also tends to have several panels in order to be more forgiving and comfortable for different parts of your torso like shoulders or hips.
The other benefit of wearing this type of clothing is that they come with many designs: lace up sleeves, cap sleeve options, halter straps… these are just some examples! There’s something out there for every woman’s taste preferences so everyone can feel their best when they’re going out on the town or spending time at home with family and friends!
What Makes Smocked Tube Tops So Comfortable?
Smocked tube tops are comfortable not only because of the design, but also due to elasticity. With so many different panels, smocking offers a lot more give than other types of clothing like jeans for example; this means that it’s easier on your body since there is always some extra fabric giving in all directions at once!
How Do You Put On A Smocked Tube Top?
It’s really easy and fast – just put one arm through an opening under the armpit then pull up until you see both arms popping out from the top. Repeat with the other side as well to get everything evenly distributed before pulling down. Then adjust accordingly by tightening or loosening whatever needs adjusting like straps or waist
Another Tip: Add shorts or trousers, a cardigan and some wedges for the perfect office look!
How to Put On A Smocked Tube Top:
Put one arm through an opening under the armpit then pull up until you see both arms popping out from the top. Repeat with opposite side as well to get everything evenly distributed before pulling down. Then adjust accordingly by tightening or loosening whatever needs adjusting like straps or waistband. The other great thing about smocked clothing is that it’s really easy to take on and off – just undo whichever buttons need undoing at each end of either shoulder strap (or do this all in one go!), grab where they meet together around your back, and give a gentle tug to pull the top apart.
Tips For Smocking:
Try smocking on a large t-shirt and then pulling it over your head – this can help you get an idea of how much fabric is going to be too much or not enough for certain areas, like around the bust.
You can use thread in whatever color you want! White shirt with white stitching? Black shirt with black stitching? Pink shirt bluish white stitches?? Go for it! There are no rules here, just make sure that whichever one you pick matches up well between seams so they don’t show through when worn as intended. Wink wink 😉
Remember smocked clothes will keep their shape more if washed in cold
water and left to air dry.
Remember smocking is not a perfect science, it’s an art! Consider that anything imperfect can make your shirt or dress look more unique and custom made for you specifically.
Experiment with different stitches on the same garment – this will give every section of fabric in your smocked top a little bit of personality! If you feel like something needs some extra decorative flair, go ahead and try adding loops at either end of each seam for added texture as well.
Smocked Tube Top FAQ:
What kind of thread should I use? Whatever color you want!! You might find white stitching shows up better than black if the colors are similar enough under most lighting conditions but there really aren’t any rules in smocking.
Is it ok to use a contrasting color for the thread? Absolutely! However, you should be aware that using white stitching over darker colors may not show up as well and vice versa with black stitches on lighter fabric. Experiment with different combinations of colors until you find one that works best for your particular project!
How do I keep my tube top from riding up when I raise my arms or bend down? This problem is pretty common (I know because I have this issue too!), but luckily there are lots of ways to solve it. Some people choose to wear their smocked tops under other pieces like jackets so they don’t have to worry about them moving around at all; others add little loops
