How Do I Find A T-Shirt That Fits Perfect And Looks Good?

T-Shirts: Finding The Perfect Style Every Time

Even t-shirts need careful consideration: too snug clothing emphasizes bulges; too loose makes you look bigger. Here are some things to keep in mind for your next t-shirt purchase.

  • Avoid tees with busy designs (think large flowers or cartoon characters) – they are distracting and make you look like a walking advertisement!
  • Baby tees do not generally look good on plus sizes. You want a nice, loose fit that falls right below the waist.
  • Your tee should fit well around the neckline and sleeves as well as through your midsection. A too-tight tee can emphasize big arms, a thick neck and midriff bulges. To avoid this, remember the skimming philosophy: clothing should skim along your curves for a smooth contour.
  • Stay away from tees that are excessively baggy! This makes you look bigger and sloppy.
  • Solid colors are the most versatile; keep printed tees to a minimum
  • Slogan tees are fun, but keep it clean and witty.
