I’m not a big T-shirt wearer, I tend to prefer a more interesting top. But there are times when we all want a great T-shirt. What makes a great T-shirt? It has to be soft, avoid showing any lumps and bumps, wash well so the seams don’t twist and last. During my travels around the web I have tried and tested quite a few so here are my T-shirt best buys.
Where to Buy the Best T-shirts
Starting with one of my Favourites; ME+EM.
The basic V neck T-shirt. Made from super soft Pima cotton and available in 4 colours, white, blue, pink and stripe. It’s slightly fitted and has a stepped hem so that you can do the “stylist’s tuck” at the front.
Gathered detail T-shirt. I know this is expensive for a T-shirt but the shaping and quality make it worth the money. It’s a “good” round neck shape even on a large bust, it works because of the gathering. Available in Khaki and a pretty Blush.
Again not a cheap option but I absolutely love the shape of this one, as well as the bright red. The swing shape elevates it above an ordinary T shirt and the Broderie trim on the sleeves is the perfect finishing touch. Also available in white.
Next up Baukjen.
The Long Line Scoop T has a really feminine shape, fitted but not clingy and if you are tall and despair of finding T-shirts long enough this is the one for you. Available in black and white.
The V neck T-shirt also comes in black and white and is semi fitted with a nice deep V, great for those of us with a large bust. It’s made from viscose for great shaping.
Finally the relaxed T-shirt is a perfect casual weekend option. Available in a soft pink and a lovely soft green.
My third choice is Hush.
More of a sweat shirt than a T-shirt, but without the too tight hem line that makes a sweatshirt unflattering on rounder figures. It comes in this lovely sunny yellow and lavender this season.
The cotton slub V neck T-shirt is the perfect combination of comfort and relaxed and comes in 9 colours. The sizing is good too, pretty true to size.
So there you have my roundup of T-shirt best buys. They may be a little more expensive than a lot of High Street Tees but I think for this particular clothing item you do get what you pay for. I would rather get the cost per wear from a quality T-shirt than throw one out after a few wears because it has lost it’s shape.
