I know, it’s Saturday and Wardrobe Wednesday (did you see the awesome pink coat from last week?) was suppose to be 3 days ago! My 2nd week sharing it and I can’t even stay on track. Today we are talking about How To Avoid The Sweater Fit Dilemma. Do you ever wonder how people keep such a slim look under their fitted sweaters? Or how short or long a sweater should be? Or is it appropriate to wear a short sweater with leggings? I picked up a few new sweaters with some Christmas money and I wanted to share a couple tips that work for me. One of these days my mom will agree to share too! Wouldn’t it be fun for Momma LaRock to share? I think so! I have provided affiliate links for your shopping pleasure.
This sweater is about as short as I would go as I would never want my belly showing in my 40’s. Maybe 20 something years ago but not now. What do you think? Too short? Tell me below in the comment section.
Tip: I actually am wearing a fitted stretch camisole under this sweater as the length of the sweater may allow for a little skin to show if I move just right. Plus, it’s below zero here in Mass so any extra layer always helps! I personally love thin strapped tanks that are fitted. They help keep any extra skin roll in check! I have every color of this this stretch camisole and it’s only $12! The nice thing is it’s thin but very fitted so you can tuck it in (with a shorter sweater) or wear it untucked under a longer sweater to give the layered look. Spanx also makes undergarments (I have this Spanx Tank Top and this top/bottom combo) but I normally use the spanx for under fitted dresses.
I love the bell sleeves and how cozy and soft the sweater is. My wardrobe is full of the same 3 colors and burnt orange is a nice addition.
The fitted slim cut jeans are also new and I will wear these for probably 10 plus year. They are by far, one of the most comfortable and flattering pair of jeans own.
The sweater below is longer and hangs close to the body. It’s actually one of the most comfortable sweaters I own. It’s super soft and not picky feeling. I am also wearing the nude colored $12 stretch camisole under this sweater and it’s pulled over my jeans to soften the waist and belt area on the jeans.
How To Avoid The Sweater Fit Dilemma
This is one of the more fitted sweaters I bought and I love the texture. It’s a light weight but still heavy sweater that doesn’t require me to wear a camisole under it. The ribbed material actually disguises any bumps under the sweater from the jeans and leaves a smooth look.

It is below zero today in Mass and tomorrow is suppose to be even colder. I don’t ever remember such cold temps for so long in Mass. This is crazy. If I wanted to live in Antartica, I would have moved there! -ha. I am headed to see my grandfather in a bit. He has been cooped up at the Nursing Home all week due to the snow (they don’t have camp when it snows and school is cancelled) so he is probably in rare form. My son has been sick and I have a cold so we can’t visit if anyone is sick, too many elderly people we can infect! Have a great weekend and hopefully you found the sweater tips useful :). PS. Did you enter yesterday’s giveaway? It’s a great family prize pack! New Update on my grandfather too and Finding The Blessing in Dementia.
