Tested & Approved: The Best White Tees That Aren’t See-Through At All

There’s nothing easier to throw on for summer days than a classic white T-shirt. Though there seems to be a different white tee for every person and situation (seriously, there are a lot), there's one group of people out there who really only want one thing in their white shirts: opacity. When I’m shopping these days, it feels like many retailers only offer semi-sheer options that double as beach cover-ups, in blissful disregard for the fact that some of us are looking for something a little more substantial. Call me conservative, but I’ve never been truly comfortable with showing off my lingerie in public, or rocking diaphanous tees that reveal more than they conceal.
