Camisoles with shelf bras

I have a bunch of camisoles that I don't wear because they have a shelf bra built in. While I'm an OK size for these to be functional (though I always wear a bra underneath which makes some of them less functional), they're pretty annoying to me. Has anyone had any success cutting those out? I have a feeling I'd wear my camis a LOT more without that extra bit of fabric.

    I just cut them out. It's worked just fine for me, and they get more use this way.

    Good to know that works just fine. I'll be slashing them all tonight then :)

    I either cut them out, or cut a small slit in the bottom middle of the elastic to ease the fit. Either way works great.

    I never tried to cut them but I'm glad to know that someone else finds them annoying, I thought it was just me :)
