About Empire Waist Tops

Just in time for the holidays, the empire strikes back, taking the shape of empire waist tops. These fun and feminine tops come in your favorite styles, such as sleeveless designs, halter-tops, and garments with short sleeves and flowing, full-length sleeves too. They come in different styles but share a common feature of a distinct border between the bust and waistline. These garments, like empire dresses, feature gathering and hemming above the natural waistline. Below the bust, these shirts fan out in a slight flare, creating a dramatic A-shape. You can find empire waist tops from many popular brands, including Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, and Gap. These versatile tops feature a hip and feminine look. You might not wear them to the office, but they make great additions to fun and casual wardrobes. These tops flatter bodies of all types: they give the illusion of more pronounced curves on thin women but create the appearance of length and a narrower torso on women with fuller figures. On eBay, you can search the large inventory to find shirts that are truly flattering.
