A-shirts visible through my shirts

Greetings.

I have a few dress shirts: A thick blue one, a thin blue one, and a thin white one.

My problem was first that I only had white A-shirts to wear under the shirts. It worked fine with the thick shirt because it is completely opaque. However this created a problem with the thinner shirts "” the A-shirts could be seen through them.

Then I got the idea of buying black A-shirts. This worked great with the thin blue shirt; it was not visible through the shirt anymore. However, the black A-shirt is still visible through the thin white shirt.

What is your experience with A-shirts under shirts? Should I try and look for brown A-shirts to wear under thin white shirts?

Note: It is not an option for me to wear a regular T-shirt inside, because I find A-shirts much more comfortable. However, having a much bigger opening for the neck, A-shirts have the tendency to display a visible semi-circle through the outer shirt, which looks bad.

Regards,
Interface.

What about going without an undershirt? Works for me.

Tried that too. Not an option for me because then I get way too cold.

Undershirts will be visible under thin shirts! A good quality shirt will not show what is under (you can see even pilosity under thin shirts). So buy shirts that will not be so thin that will show what is under (put your hand in between the fabric, if you can see it, it is too thin).

I think someone asked something similar to this before, and someone else suggest a heather gray colored undershirt as showing through less.

Thinness doesn't mean it lacks quality, just that it is thin.

Yes, supposedly a heather grey undershirt will not show.
