what to wear under a somewhat sheer white shirt?

I recently purchased a nice slim-fitting A Basile white dress shirt from a forum member. It fits and looks great, except for the fact that the fabric (two-ply) is somewhat sheer. In certain light, it is definitely possible to see my skin (and body outline) underneath the shirt.

What would forum members recommend wearing underneath to limit this effect? I assume that a regular white v-neck wouldn't work, because you will then see the outline of the v-neck (and the place where it stops on the arms).

Any suggestions?

I've heard some say that a gray undershit won't show up under a sheer white shirt the way a white undershirt would. Never tried it myself, but it might be worth a shot.

Try a longsleeve white undershirt if you must, but shortsleeve tee for me. People on this forum have a theory that grey shirts can work. Give it a try.
Also, what about a light tan shirt? If you are trying to cover just bodyhair.

I now buy twill white shirts. They are great shirts and have the least sheer. You can find really thick ones in good stores.
