What every best has:
The infomercial for Cami Secret features a lecherous-looking boss leaning over a pretty young office assistant wearing a low-cut blouse. If only she had Cami Secret, a square of cloth, embellished with a strip of lace trim at the top and two snaps at the sides, her closet full of low-cut dresses and tops would transform into a wardrobe with suitable for a professional setting. Using the Cami Secret looks easy; just slip the fabric between your bra and clothing, snap it onto your bra straps and voilà -- instant camisole look. When it works properly and doesn't slip, it appears that you're wearing a full camisole or tank top underneath.
But, according to some reviewers, that little square of cloth isn't big enough and just doesn't help much if your bust is larger than that of the model in the commercial. Although the infomercial claims that the Cami Secret will fit all sizes, it apparently isn't large enough to work properly for plus-sized women, or those with full chests or broad shoulders. Quite a few also say it only works with bras with thin straps.
About half of the reviews we saw say that the Cami Secret doesn't fit well and looks cheap, and that they hate the lace -- they wish it came in just plain fabric. Some say the lace is so tacky-looking that it can actually ruin a nice outfit. Many also claim that whenever they bend over the Cami Secret flips out. Others say that the Cami Secret is a great idea but should be of better quality; they cite poor, cheap fabric and snaps that don't work.
Still, quite a few users really love the Cami Secret for adding some versatility to their wardrobe, but even they admit that they can see how the dimensions might be a bit skimpy for some users. Those who do like it don't seem to have any complaints about the fabric, and say it's easy to use and stays in place nicely. However, it seems that it works best for a medium to small body type without a large bust.
The basic Cami Secret set of three in black, beige and white. They cost $10 plus $6.99 for shipping and handling. For an additional shipping charge of $6.99, buyers can get a free second set in navy, brown and ivory. However, many customers who ordered their Cami Secret directly from the product website complain of being overcharged for shipping for extra sets. They caution that there's no way to review your order total before it's put through, so you're not sure what you're being charged until it's too late. If you really want to try Cami Secret, we suggest ordering through Amazon.com so that you know what you're getting. And, as many users note, for the price there -- $8 plus free Prime shipping -- there may be no reason not to.
Amazon users are divided about the Cami Secret. Fewer than half of the nearly 550 reveiwers are satisfied that these mock camisoles add some versatility to their wardrobes, giving it an overall rating of 3.6 stars out of 5. Most say that Cami Secret won't fasten properly to wider bra straps and is made of flimsy, cheap fabric that simply isn't large enough to cover the subject. Quite a few wish they could get it without lace, either because they dislike the look or because the lace is itchy.
This thorough review, accompanied by a video showing the reviewer putting on a Cami Secret, is largely positive. The reviewer notes that "they didn't invent anything mind-boggling here," but that the simple design actually works. Ultimately, she says most people probably don't need this, although for the price it's probably worth a shot for those occasional needs.
