Valmont Lace Trim Bra Camisole
Absolutely love it! Great fit alone or as a layered piece. True support and coverage.

Short and thick.. but otherwise great!
I've been looking for an affordable tank top/camisole that has a built in bra for some time now.. they are easy to find in smaller sizes, but ever since I gained weight recently, clothes that fit right AND are priced right are my nemesis.
This camisole is great except that it is very short and therefore I would not wear it without something on top of it (think belly popping out when arms are lifted), which would be fine if it was also really thin. Unfortunately, it is a somewhat thicker material than I'd like for a layering piece. The thicker material is great for shaping and covering up any unflattering bulges, but I know if I wear anything too thick over the top of it, I will overheat quickly. BUT they make layering pieces pretty skimpy anymore so I'm not too worried about finding things that won't cause me to overheat.
I'm thinking about sewing on a piece to the bottom to make it longer in case I just want to wear a shrug over it. I really like how it fits otherwise. It's not cheaply made and the bra is actually comfortable. It doesn't pinch or anything and I don't have back fat or underarm fat bulging out. I haven't washed it yet, so we'll see how that goes. But it is a stretchy material and I I'm not too worried. So far, it's true to size.
I'm actually about to exchange a shirt I ordered for another one of these camisoles in white (I got black initially). Now THAT says a lot in itself.

Great Bra Underneath a Horrible Top
I ordered my normal bra size, 48D (I don't mind sharing), and the built in bra on this camisole fits wonderfully... but the camisole itself doesn't! It is so small I'd be amazed if someone half my size could wear it comfortably!
The material is thin and uncomfortable and so stretched out once I manage to get it on (which is a major undertaking), that you can see the bra, my belly button, and my jeans through it! Soooo, guess what I'm going to do? The bra stays, but the camisole is getting cut off and made into dust rags.
DO NOT BUY THIS! It is not meant to be worn by anyone with a figure!

bra runs big
the cami is great but the bra part runs large. I wear a C cup but would have been a better fit if I orderd B cup.
