¾-Sleeve Low-Cut Undershirt in Lightweight Filament Silk
Very poor quality
I'm even afraid to wash it--it may get worse--looks like a rag

It breaths and keeps you cool or warm.
Silk - warm in the winter, cool during the summer. I have been buying the basic underwear for about 20 years. Lasts longer if you hand wash and hang it to dry.

3/4 sleeve low cut undershirt
I purchased this item two years ago, it was perfect, so I decided to purchase another one this year, it was terrible. It was so thin, you can see right through it. Will NOT ever purchase another one.

Liked the weight and feel.
Fit so comfortably I hardly knew I was wearing it. Except, I was warm. Will definetly be coming back for more.

Keeps me warm!!
I have four of these undershirts, and I love them. They are lightweight, not at all apparent under clothing, and keep me warm (medium weight). Because they are not bulky, it is possible to look fashionable w/o freezing to death in the winter!! That's great news!!

Good quality but too long!
I ordered 2 of these lightweight undershirts in size medium petite. Usually petite sizes are the right length for me, however, these shirts run very long for a petite size. (I am 5'1") I will bring them to a dressmaker to have them shortened since I don't sew. I think these undershirts would fit a petite tall person. Unless you are 5'4" or taller, I do not recommend them.

Survive Winter with silk underwear.
Several years ago I moved from Wisconsin to Arizona. I was amazed that in Winter I didn't freeze in 30 below wind chills here. My goodness, in Winter if it got to 50 degrees it was considered cold by those living here. How funny was that? I thought winter here would be a piece a cake. Three years later, having become an Arizona wimp, I saw Winter and its 50 degree temp coming and began to dread the upcoming 50-60 degree drop from 100-110 degree Summers. My solution was to stay inside most of the season.
But this year I got a dog and when you get a dog you have walk that dog regardless if the temperature. So to mitigate Summer heat I would wait until 9:00 pm when temps dropped to 95 (if we were lucky). But now it's Winter and I have a dog. Daily the temp went down. Now it's 40 in the morning and 45 at night and I'm freezing, but dedicated to keep walking my dog. Suddenly I remembered that 20 years ago I used to ski and I wore silk long johns. I set out to find those silks among the long packed away ski clothes. I found pants, a tank top and a crew neck/long sleeve top. Heaven had visited me. I put those layers on to walk. Then I began wearing the top at home do I could set the indoor thermostat lower. However theses silks are OLD. I checked the tags and saw the brand was Winter Silks. I thought I had received that catalog recently. The next day another one arrived. I ordered more silks.
I also freeze at work during the day. My building is 100 years old and that old system just couldn't keep up with the cold (and remember that is only Arizona cold). Well what about getting the low cut top with 3/4 sleeves for work. So that's what I ordered. The warmth factor one is so light weight that no one can tell I'm wearing them, but I am warm with no excess bulk whatsoever.
And, that did he trick. I was finally warm at home and work. I now have two new silk tops and new silk bottoms. And I am finally layered enough to enjoy walking my dog in the cold.
I loved Winter Silks 20 years ago and still do. I just never expected to need them in Arizona.
