~ Fit notes from Staci B - Founder & CEO ~
"The Silkee line was developed for women like me, who want a bra with full support and shaping with underwire but do not want or need molded foam cups which can add projection to an already full size bust line. The Silkee cup holds its shape all day because the fabric is double laminated which gives the best support without it stretching out by the end of the day. Great for all body types that want total back smoothing, combined with a non-foam minimizing cup. Can be worn with any style top or dress that has a regular full coverage back."
STYLE NOTE: Staci's favorite everyday bra
To properly measure your upper chest, stand in front of your mirror topless (with or without a bra) and with the tape measure high around the upper back and under your arms, pull the tape measure TIGHT above your breasts at the top of your cleavage.

I've been wearing this bra for weeks now and I'm obsessed with it. The cups are unlined (which is next to impossible to find for smoothing bras), the underwire doesn't dig, and the whole back wears like a tank top. It smoothes out my irritating back and side rolls nicely.
I do wish the unlined bra came in a version that had more of a scoop in the back, like some of the other ones do. I will definitely be replacing most of my bras with this one.
Once I get myself " into " the bra , it is very comfortable and flattering. My "mature" bulges under and around the arms are not seen and I am very pleased with the bra. I wish there was a tad bigger size , as I am a 1X in my tops. So I feel I am stretching this fabric a tad to pour myself into, but once in, I'm good!
I must have purchased 25 to 30 shapeez bras and camis over the years. The silkee shortie is one of my favorites. It provides me with the coverage and support I need yet I barely know its on when I'm wearing it. It is what the name says ...it truly feels silky against your skin. Also, I have tried many other bras and I can guarantee there are NO other brands that cover back fat and bra bulge like Shapeez. Simply the best! Thank you Staci for these wonderful designs.
