What fabric is the shell made of?
Does it have sleeves, or sleeveless?

If you don't need the extra sleeve length, avoid short sleeves, and look for a wide arm hole. That allows the body to release a lot of heat.

I got some cropped shells a few years ago. They end right under my bra band. I get a decent neckline and sleeves without all the extra bulk. I also got one that are sleeveless for shirts where I just need a little more chest coverage. I’d look for something like that.

I wish I could recommend the brand but they went out of business.

Try looking for “dickies”.

Shell Station sells them as cropped shells.

I can't find it on their website now, but a few years back I bought a "tissue tee" from Target. It's amazing. 100% cotton. Super soft. And do thin it's a bit see through. Can't use as a tee shirt on is own, but it's a perfect shell.

For some tops if all you need is for the neckline

I've started wearing a cropped lightweight cotton sweater (shrug? bolero? short cardigan?) for some of my summer clothes instead. It's easier to have a layer that doesn't cling.

I threw them out this year. I wear non see through 100% cotton tees and thin cotton cardigans instead. Dresses that don’t need anything under.

These wrinkle terribly. I hate having to adjust the shoulder part.

Pull out the elastic.
I have a few shirts that don't need shells and it's really a game changer. I've even taken some shirts to the seamstress to have the neck pulled in a bit if it's a little too open.
