I am looking for the top part of my shirt. It is the first article of clothing I put on in the morning when presenting myself to the world. Yet it is also one of the most overlooked pieces in my wardrobe, and its importance often gets taken for granted. This blog post will explore why we sometimes neglect to pay attention to our tops and how that can affect us later in life.
What is the top part?
The top part of a shirt is any piece that sits on the upper torso, from the base of the neck to where it meets with jeans or pants. This includes shirts and sweaters in all shapes and sizes: short-sleeved, long-sleeved, fitted, loose fitting, cropped etc. Essentially anything worn over what would be considered underwear goes into this category.
How much should we think about our tops?
It’s important for everyone to take time every day to consider how they are presenting themselves through their clothing choices. If you have ever felt like your outfit was too tight around your chest or stomach area but didn’t want to wear something else because everything else is too big, this article is for you.
Why do tops matter?
For the most part clothing should not be restrictive or uncomfortable in any way- which includes your top! When shopping for clothes it’s imperative to consider how the piece will fit across the chest and stomach area before making a purchase. If something doesn’t feel right from the moment you put it on don’t hesitate to exchange it at the store if possible. It might only take one time of feeling restricted throughout your day (or even worse, during an activity) before deciding that there are more important things than saving money by buying what feels wrong. There are plenty of affordable options out there so try going into stores with different sizes until you find something that fits comfortably.
The most important part of our body is the top. Don’t let clothing restrict it in any way- which includes your top! When shopping for clothes, make sure you consider how the piece will fit across the chest and stomach before making a purchase. If something doesn’t feel right from the moment you put it on, don’t hesitate to exchange it at the store if possible. It might only take once time of feeling restricted throughout your day (or even worse, during an activity) before deciding that there are more important things than saving money by buying what feels wrong. There are plenty of affordable options out there so try going into stores with different sizes until you find something that fits comfortably.
Consider this: Shirts without buttons- or the right size buttons- can make it difficult to button up.
Call To Action: This post may not have answered all your questions about clothing, but hopefully it was a good place to start! Did this article help you feel more confident in buying clothes and wearing them the way that feels comfortable for you? Share with friends who might need some advice on how they dress too. Knowing what looks best when we are feeling our best is powerful information that will change lives!
As mentioned earlier, don’t be afraid of trying new things because there’s always another option out there if something doesn’t work (although sometimes people get stuck in an endless cycle) so go ahead and try different brands until you find one that fits great.
I hope you’re feeling more confident in the clothes that you wear and if not, I recommend looking at my blog post on what to do when we don’t like our bodies.

the top part – the bottom half of your shirt – sleeves
dress – pants/skirt
The top part of your body is the first thing people see when they look at you. It sets the tone for the rest of what they find below it and can affect how comfortable someone feels in their clothes. The bottom half, or lower half, refers to any garment worn from the waist down; including shirts with sleeves (sleeved tops), dresses or skirts that cover up your legs, and leggings as well. I will be focusing on these types of lower garments because dressing them properly does a lot to make us feel good about ourselves!
