Grana Silk Cami Review

If you were to take a peek into my closet you would see a lot of basic pieces with a few trendier items mixed in there as well. It's no secret that I'm a lover of a good basic! This allows me to create a countless number of outfits with pieces that will take me season after season! These are the kinds of pieces that you want to invest in but let me just say you don't have to have a huge budget either! Companies like Grana and Everlane offer basic styles in good quality materials at lower price points! Take this Tibi silk cami for example, it's beautiful and I'm sure it's amazing but there's no way I'm spending that much on a cami right now! Well, I was able to find one almost identical in style from Grana, here, for less than half the price!


So today I'm reviewing two camis that I wear ALL the time! I bought them from an online store called Grana. Their philosophy is selling quality clothing for a lower price by cutting out the middlemen and shipping directly from their warehouse (in Hong Kong). I ordered two styles of silk camis that they offer, that way I could see which one I liked best. They offer free shipping over $75. I took advantage of this and I have to say it's surprisingly fast for coming all the way from Hong Kong! I believe I got my order in 2-3 days. Okay let's get on into my thoughts! (Stay tuned until the bottom of this post for a discount!)

This top has a round neck, I like it but I would prefer this style with a slight v neck instead! The size XS fit me perfectly! It's lined so you don't have to worry about it being see through which is amazing! It's made with from 'crepe de chine' and this material is soft but has a little texture to it. I bought it in the color 'off white' and I'm glad because white tends to look dingy over time but I won't have to worry about that with this color. I also plan to buy it in the black!

Grana V-Neck Camisole | $49 | Size XS

I think this cut is very flattering and I love that the v-neck is also in the back. The size XS fit me fine but I think the XXS would've fit me better. This style fits a lot looser compared the other one. Definitely consider sizing down in this one especially since it has a pretty deep v-neck! It's also double layered so that's a huge plus! The silk used in this one is called 'georgette satin' and I love it so much more than the other! This one feels smooth and silky to the touch. I'm planning to buy this in the black but the mulberry color is gorgeous as well!

How Do You Take Care of Them?
The instructions for both say dry clean only but I don't have time for that. I took the risk and hand washed them in room temperature water with a mild soap (I used Dr. Bronners.). Then I did a final rinse with diluted white vinegar (This is a trick I use on my silk pillowcases too!). Then I laid them on a towel to dry.  They turned out just fine using this method! Another tip I have is to shake around the fabric - I believe it helps loosen up the fibers and makes it feel softer and gets rid of the stiffness.  As for removing wrinkles, I've had success with this spray. I just tested it on an inside layer to make sure it wouldn't leave spots.

 A tip I have when wearing these silk camis is wearing this bra underneath. This way you don't have bra straps showing anywhere! I also like wearing bralettes that way if it peeks through it's still cute!

Here are some photos of how I've worn them!

Camis like this are perfect to wear on their own right now during the summer but will go perfectly with chunky cardigans and scarves in the colder months!
