Disclosure: This is a sponsored post by Adea, luxurious yet modest every day clothing.
With warmer weather finally upon us, layering is the name of the game — so I was delighted when Adea reached out (and that they’re offering everyone a special discount code!). I’m firmly on board with the founder’s belief that “every woman’s wardrobe should have a solid foundation of high quality basics that are reliable, flattering, and comfortable” — and I was intrigued to hear that Adea had sourced Italian-made fabrics “with the most advanced technology available” to create modern, body-conscious fits, particularly specializing in layering pieces.
They sent me two pieces to get a feel for their product. The fabric is silky smooth, breathable, and — hooray! — it’s machine washable. I think Adea tops would be particularly great for travel (business or personal), because the pieces air dry in under an hour, so you can pack less. The fabric is touted as having such a high opaqueness that it is extremely effective at filtering the sun’s rays, offering twice the UV protection of cotton. Another benefit is that the fabric is moisture-wicking, so you don’t have to worry about embarrassing sweat marks under your arms. With both pieces Adea sent to me, they hugged my curves without riding up or being uncomfortable. Oh, and this is a big one — the fabric resists abrasions and pilling, so not only do the pieces themselves always look new, but you don’t suffer the humiliation of spending serious money on a beautiful new blouse or dress and then realizing your outfit looks lousy because you have a ratty, nasty camisole peeking out.
