I have admitted it before and I will admit it again. I love “As Seen on TV” products. I can actually be a bit of sucker when it comes to them. However, I have also found some things that I continue to use and love.
My latest foray into these products is a mock camisole called Cami Secret. These camisoles are similar in nature to another product known as a “dickey”. That is an accessory that women can wear to change the look of a blouse or top by filling in an open neckline.
Cami Secret does the same thing. It fills in the neckline to cover cleavage and make a low-cut top more acceptable for daywear. But does it work? Let’s take a look.
Made by Ontel Products Corporation, Cami Secret promises several things. It promises to:
Be “one size fits all,”
Meet any color requirement,
Turn outfits from day to night or night to day;
Instantly attach and remove;
Be light and comfortable and to
Let’s examine each of those claims individually, beginning with “one size fits all.” While I agree that Cami Secret would most likely fit the majority of women, it is clearly not made for women with a very full bust line. While the top of the cami attaches to the bra, stretching to easily fit, the bottom is left to float free. That doesn’t work for women with larger breasts that tend to either separate or squeeze together easily. The cami either comes out of the top and exposes the so-called secret or gets caught between the breasts. Cami Secret only gets 2 stars on this claim.
Cami Secret comes in a three-packing containing beige, black and white options. For the most part, these three shades will work with most other colors but I don’t know that you could call them all-inclusive. I have to give them 3 stars on this claim.
If the cami fits, it can indeed turn outfits from day to night and vice versa. It instantly turns a low-cut top into office appropriate wear and back again for a night on the town. I give the product 5 stars for this claim.
As promised, Cami Secret is easy to attach. To do so, follow these instructions. First put on the bra you intend to wear. Next, turn Cami Secret to the lace side up facing away from your chest. Unclip the closure and re-clip it over the bra strap. Then close the clip and repeat the process on the other side. Finally, slide Cami Secret down or up to achieve the look desired. The product gets 4 stars for this claim.
Cami Secret is made out of a lightweight, silky fabric that feels great against the skin. Once it is in place you can hardly tell it is there. It is very comfortable. That is, unless you are afraid of it coming out of the top. Then, it is stressful. Nonetheless, the product gets 4 stars for comfort.
Cleaning Cami Secret is easy. You can hand wash it or wash it with like colors on the gentle cycle of your washing machine. Line dry or lay flat to dry. If necessary, you can iron it on a cool cycle. Do not; however, bleach Cami Secret nor send it to the dry cleaners. The product gets 4 stars on this claim.
With 22 stars out of a possible 30, that still makes Cami Secret a fairly good product option. I like it because it let you achieve a layered look without adding the bulk that extra layers generally cause. It is versatile and fun.
The major draw back to this product is that women with a larger chest can’t really wear it. It was a poor purchase for me but my daughter loves it.
