The Sleeveless Crop Top

I’ve done a lot of research on how to figure out what the hell to call these things, but I’ve finally decided it’s a shirt that requires a multi-name for itself. According to Wikipedia Sleeveless Shirt knowledge, the shirt that best fits the description is the sleeveless t-shirt, simply because this shirt has no sleeves. Perhaps this is the true origin of the shirt, since it spanned from the 80’s super rock culture and muscle builders clubs as a shirt that had a big sleeve hole in it. However, today we see the monstrosity that is the sleeveless shirt, allowing for ZERO rib cage/side boob to show through..

Make the pain stop, I know.

So, digging deeper, I was almost excited to stumble upon the crop top, but this seems to just mean a top that shows off the belly of a girl, or has a weird cropping along the bottom.

I’ve decided it’s the sleeveless crop top. Because these shirts are usually attacked with scissors for resizing the sleeve hole, and often times do show off a bit of belly in the process..

Now that that’s all cleared up…

Thank goodness it’s summer. All you need now is a pair of trousers to chop up!

I think what makes these shirts so great is not necessarily when there is massive side boob, but when you can see a wide strap of a bra from the side.
