Ahh, looking ahead to summer—a time for laid back fashion at it
I’m really not a t-shirt girl (I’m busty and I feel like they’re not so flattering)but for “classic” crewneck t-shirts I think American Apparel is the best. I love mens Hanes white undershirts too (though I do NOT like the misogynist name they’re known by!). I wear them when I work out but they can look pretty sexy too!
I love American Appearal tees. I love their clothes point blank period. So comfy, it feels like you are in your significant other’s shirt, but with a better fit…lol.
lapristine- I’m with you on the hourglass. I am busty as well and my favorite t-shirts are from Hurley. They are plenty long and fit me well in all the important places. I am a surfer though, so take that into account.
Of course, I gotta go with Old Navy on this one.
Target for me.. But I like a lot of things from Target, period. To me they are one of the highest quality ‘cheap’ places to buy fashions of any type. I am not actually a huge fan of Old Navy, I think their quality is poor, and Target is better. The fit of Old Navy clothes are strange too. Surprisingly, I was in WalMart for something, I don’t know, and I picked up a couple of racer back tank tops for like five bucks each and so far they are great, the fit is fabulous! I wouldn’t have expected it.
My body is an hourglass and I’ve never found a T-shirt that is actually flattering. I’d be interested to hear what other curvy fashionistas do, in regards to T-shirts.
I like the Mossimo shirts from Target. They come in different cuts and fabric blends, but the ones I like are fitted and have a clingy-er sort of fabric—I think it’s a cotton/spandex blend. They also wash up pretty well, although I never put them in the dryer, so that may be why they last forever.
if you like American Apparel and are in the LA area try the American Apparel community store. i think its downtown? I hear prices are 20-30% off but I’ve yet to check it out myself!
J.Jill has cute tees in a wide variety of different styles and colors.
