Is it possible to buy a cotton, nice fitting, plain t shirt?
I am a size 8/10, 5'2" pear shaped with c section overhang. I have a couple of Boden's stripy Bretons - long sleeved and short sleeved - which I like the feel, fit and neckline of.
I would like for summer plain t-shirts that don't make me sweat, cling to lumps but also aren't baggy. Like a decent length to do the tuck thing. Don't like a low v neck line but equally don't want a really high neck line as want them to be suitable for summery weather.
Is it possible to find something like this on the high street? Or am I just too fussy?
I have just ordered the Boden t-shirt in the second link from MrsRoger, thank you for that. I had seen them in the past but honestly, for that price I would have liked to be able to buy 2!! There's a 3 week wait too but I tend to find that it's never that long. So that's me done for now, hopefully.
Frugal I keep looking at the H&M ones but have had a similar experience to you in the past. I often wonder if it's a false economy and should just stick with the more costly options but in a lesser quantity.
Mintyy, how much are the Petit Bateau ones you like? I like a heavy cotton myself...not sure if the cheaper ones are a decent weight & the ones at around £30 are pricey (when I think of the little messy hands and noses which will inevitably be rubbing against the fabric....)
