    Default ladies' top

    1. What is the simple word to describe the ladies' top which is tight and show the figure very much?

    2. What is the simple word to describe the colour of the ladies' top is very light and it almost sees through?


    Thank you.

    There are an almost infinite number of styles - and names. You will get better answers if you can provide a link to pictures of the garments you are describing. #1 may be a boob tube - but I can't be sure.

    Do any of these describe what you want?
    Sleeveless shirt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If not, I'm willing to continue the search.

    Thanks for that link, Ray. I didn't know until today that "A lax pinny is a tank top that exposes the arm pit hair". I feel better for knowing that.

    Actually, it is a turtle-necked, very tight, long sleeve in white that's why it shows the figure very much. What should I call it?

    That's a tank top or T-shirt.

    You wear a tube top, crop top or cami under it.

    A) Shall I say :

    1. My top is too sheer and tight fit.
    2. My top is too transparent and tight fit.

    B) Does a shirt has to be with collars and in long sleeves?
