New York Fashion Week Tested & Approved: Bali's Seamless Torset Top

For those of us who work in fashion, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York is a lot like a marathon. You run from backstage to show to lounge to dinner to after party, with barely a breather in between.  As such, what you're wearing when you start the day is often what you're wearing when the day ends, so it's important that outfits be stylish and flattering but also inherently functional and comfortable, if at all possible.

With that in mind, it was apropos that I began a week-long test drive of Bali Intimates product this past weekend. Thanks to a few client events, it was basically a MUST that I be in silk jersey from day to night. And since that isn't the most forgiving fabric in the free world, the shapewear that I rocked beneath was of paramount importance.

My savior? The Bali Seamless Torset Top.  This clever camisole shapes your torso, yet scoops below your bra to avoid boob-smushage (never a good look!).

I'd recommend snagging in both nude and black ($34 each here) to ensure that you're covered for any and all occasions - just be sure to size up (I'm a size Small in tops and a 29 in designer denim, and required a Large - yikes!)

FTC Disclosure: Bali supplied shapewear and intimates samples for a week-long test drive, however all opinions are my own.
