Why Tapered Collection?
Tapered Collection was born out of my frustration over being unable to find the perfect tee. Like many women, I have areas of my body I feel less secure about, particularly after becoming a mom. (Hellooo, midsection!) I wanted a basic tee that would both fit and flatter my figure. That wouldn't shrink the first time I washed it. That wasn't so sheer it showed off my bra. And so I created Tapered Collection.
My tees are designed with a longer tapered hem that allows them to drape effortlessly on the body, creating an attractive silhouette. Made in Fall River, Massachusetts from high-quality 100% Supima cotton, they are pre-shrunk and garment-dyed, meaning no shrinking, no fading. Finally—a tee that fits and flatters.
In Fall 2016, I introduced dresses to fill out the collection using the same principles as the tees: feminine, everyday basics with flattering silhouettes.
