Fabulous Find: “Wife Beaters”
While technically not a recent fab find, as I’ve been in love with wife beaters since my high school days when I discovered their versatility. Now, I am seriously addicted acquiring as many as possible. You know how some women covet shoes or hand bags? My heart belongs to wife beaters (well shoes and hang bags too but that’s just an inconvenient detail ..shh). I have at LEAST thirty to show for my devotion. Now, I know what you are thinking – thirty, Seriously? Yes, seriously! Don’t judge me. In my defense, they are all different and they all serve a different purpose.
See, I have long ones, short ones, others with different texture and feel. I have ones with small rib details, some with large rib details. I have softer ones for that are cool feel under a sweater set. I have some that are perfect for a cool bike ride. I have others that are fantastic with jeans, which looks fun and sexy in heals. Yes the rib details matters greatly, for instance, too big and you can forget wearing it with jeans (looks trashy), get my point?
See, why owning a wife a beater is the same as having the perfect accessory? You can never have enough and you can wear as many different ways as you like. It doesn’t discriminate.
Best of all if you are smart you can buy them in packs. I am particular fond of the Hanes male ones, they seem to last and are tight – “Made for a man but strong enough for a woman.” Ha ha. Don’t get tempted to spend the cash on just one buy them in bulk and you will be glad you did. I used to make the mistake of spending $10 on one but now I am wise and you should be too.
You ask: but I am not sure it will fit me. What if its too big? I suggest looking at boys ones, they are even cheaper are just as cool as the “big boys” ones. See, I got you. So, while I don’t condone actual wife beating, I do condone the use of “wife beaters.” Happy wearing.
