Blog Science: I Review Everlane's Linen Scoop-Neck Tee.

Marianne and I were both super curious about the Everlane Linen Scoop-Neck Tee especially since we both really like their basic cotton v-neck. I went ahead and ordered one for blog science and it arrived quickly. At first glance, I really liked it: 

I ordered a medium and it fit perfectly with a loose, but not oversized, drape. I was delighted at it's lack of boxiness! The material is a super lightweight slub and felt really nice. The fit is ideal: 

But then I looked in the mirror and, y'all. This shirt is completely transparent. Now, I like a sheer-ish slub tee but this one is REALLY sheer: 

I'm wearing a nude bra, of course, and was like, oh, cool cool maybe it's fine and then I saw this: 

That is the little gold coin decoration on my Natori bra shining through. You guys. If I can see my bra decoration through the shirt? IT IS TOO SHEER. I mean, I guess I could wear a cami under it but who wants to wear two shirts in the summer? Not me. It totally negates the purpose of the summer-weight linen. Ugh, Everlane. Why? I will say, there are lots and lots of glowing reviews for this tee on their website so maybe I'm just the only one who doesn't dig this level of sheer. Anyway, I guess will be returning it because nope. 


  1. This is why bras with shiny gold decorations are bad!

    1. I don't disagree and I could certainly remove it but STILL.

  2. I have a hard time understanding the appeal of linen anything besides its airiness. My experience with these types of shirts has always been that first they stretch out and then they shrink when you wash them. Too high maintenance for my taste

  3. I love a linen tee or tank, but for an underneath layer only - they are always stupid sheer. This morning I had on three layers of linen (including the linen Loft cardigan from a couple weeks ago).

  4. A summer top that doesn't require a cami, or weird alternate underpinnings (ie, strapless bra) is like gold in my book. What is the point of a sheer t-shirt? That's like having a sheer cami, useless, it should be the first line of defense.
