Black cap sleeve shell with silk cowl

Our black cap sleeve shell is anything but basic!

The cowl neckline in silk adds luxury and sophistication.  The lustre of the silk contrasts to the matte body for visual interest.

The Ponti di Roma body has enough stretch to be forgiving and enough structure to avoid clinging.  

Add a black pencil skirt for the look of a little black dress or rock it with black jeans in denim or leather.

Hidden details:

  • Cap sleeves help define the shoulder and avoid drawing extra attention to the bust (as most regular tank-style shells will).
  • Princess seams up front + darts at back to define your shape and work with your curves.
  • Zips at the lower back for easy on/easy off.
  • Silk trim on armholes and centre back finishing.
  • Armholes designed to avoid bra exposure.  They're higher and smaller to keep both straps and cups under cover.
  • Cowl can be tucked in for just a hint of silk or left full.
  • 19 momme weight silk. This substantially better quality silk means that it can stand up to how often you're going want to wear it.  This isn't a flimsy, precious piece to save for special occasions.
  • Quality knit fabric on the body doesn't pill so no side-boob friction wear and tear.
  • Customers comment on how lovely the body fabric feels, a bit silky despite the matte finish.

The body is tailored yet forgiving to skim over your curves without clinging or pulling.  Works for any shape (DD - JJ+ cups).

Hand-wash in cold water and hang to dry. We don't like drycleaning either!

*Ponti di what?? It’s that mid-to-heavier weight stretchy fabric used for dresses, skirts and even trousers. It doesn’t sag or bag and holds you in nicely.
