Plus Sizes Are Here!
You asked and we have answered! After numerous requests for plus sizes from both our existing and aspiring customer base, Adea is now proud to offer sizes 8, 9 and 10 (roughly equivalent to sizes 16 – 22) in some of our most popular styles.
These new offerings will still be made from the same, high-quality, Italian fabric with moisture-wicking capabilities that you have come to expect from Adea, but they will allow for current customers to achieve a roomier fit as well as new customers to learn to love them.
Currently, the ¾ sleeve crew neck (style C7194) is available in the new sizes and the long-sleeve crew neck will be available in the new sizes by early September. And, as the season progresses, other fall/winter styles will be close behind.
We are extremely excited to be adding to the variety of our current inventory and are thrilled to welcome our new customers. Please be in touch if you or any of your plus-sized family or friends would like any information about our high-quality, Italian-made basics. We are excited to e-meet you and to serve you!

In the May 2020 issue of Smithsonian magazine I came across an intriguing article titled, “A Half-Century of Trips,” written by Ted Scheinman, (a writer and scholar based in Southern California). This features a subhead that reads, “Americans have steadily become more dedicated travelers, despite historic setbacks.”
This is the first thing I saw when perusing the 50th anniversary issue of the Smithsonian magazine for April 2020. This eye-opening 10-page article (with spectacular photos) is titled, “The Ship in the Ice” and concerns a topic we’ve all been hearing about for years, e.g., global warming.
The pandemic this year has affected all of us in many ways. Two things that stand out in my mind: people definitely need people (to paraphrase the song “People” sung by Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl). The phone, email, computer, TV and all the other digital creations we use DO NOT take the place of human interaction. We all need to see and talk to each other. That said we have also learned that we can work at home very efficiently and handle our normal workload if necessary. Never commute again? I don’t think that will happen, but perhaps we’ll find a happy medium – time will tell.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
