A HOT BODY

Nothing says relaxed and sexy like a white T-shirt. Problem is, get it wrong and you risk looking, well, blah. Lucky then that we’re here help you to work yours like a pro.

FACT

You can’t beat a well-cut white T-shirt. Cool, confident and the ultimate partner to every spring trend, it looks just as  chic with pastel jeans as dressed up all the way with a statement skirt and killer heels. And – white obviously we’re dressing for our selves, not our men – you’d be hard put to find a man who doesn’t think women look their sexiest in one. It’s the wardrobe staple every girl should own – but be warned, it’s not as simple to wear as it looks. So, from the cut of the tee (the wrong neckline can turn a perky bust into a matronly shelf) to how to buff up those arms ready for exposure, here’s your one-stop-shop to buying – and rocking – this season’s must-have piece.

Found the perfect white t-shirt!

Is $75 too much to splash out on a T-shirt? We don’t think so. If you want it to stay looking sharp well beyond spring, it’s worth making an investment buy. Understated and slightly oversized, this cotton/modal tee is your all-season essential.

YOUR WHITE-TEE WORKOUT

The circuit hones super-toned arms, a perky bust and a flat sexy back. Do three circuits of 12 reps of each move.

1. BENT-OVER ROW

Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand; bend knees, while keeping your back flat, and lean forwards slightly. Look ahead to avoid putting pressure on your neck.

Pull the dumbbells up towards your chest, keeping your elbows high and wide, then lower back down to complete one rep.

2. FULL-CIRCLE LATERAL RAISE

Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a pair of dumbbells in front of your thighs, palms facing each other.

Raise your hands out sideways and continue until they meet above your head. Then lower with control.

As you raise, keep your little fingers pointing out and up, so they are uppermost at the top of the lift.

3. BICEP CURL AND PRESS

Stand, holding a pair of dumbbells by your thighs.

Curl your hands up to your shoulders with your palms facing in towards you.

Press your hands up above your head while rotating your palms away from you.

Reverse the exercise to return to the start. This one rep.

4. BALL PULL-OVERS

Sit on a Swiss ball holding a dumbbell in your lap with both hands. Use a ball that’s the right size for you – when sitting with feet flat on the floor, your hips and knees should be at the right angles.

Roll down into a bridge position, with your legs bent at 90o. Raise the dumbbell above your head. This is the start position.

Lower the dumbbell backwards, keeping your arms straight. Slowly bring the dumbbell back up to the start position.

5. BALL FILES

Sit on o Swiss ball holding a pair of dumbbells in your lap, then roll down into a bridge position (see move 4).

Slowly lower the dumbbells to each side with a slight bend in your elbows.

Breathing out, press the dumbbells back up above you.

6. BENCH DIPS

Sit on the edge of a chair with your hands holding the seat next to your hips. Move your feet away from the chair.

Edge your bottom off the seat, supporting your weight on your hands, with your legs straight.

Bend your elbows to lower your bottom as far as you can. Then rise back up to complete one rep. It’s easier if your feet are closer to the chair.
