Decent t shirts

I've spent my life in primark cheapo t shirts, now I'm nearing the size I want to be I'm happy to buy some that'll last not fall apart after a few months.

I need something a bit loser around my belly but I have big boobs so completely unfitted would look dreadful. I don't want them tight either, am I searching for something that doesn't exist?

Willing to spend £15 per t shirt, does anyone have any suggestions?

Please don't say h&m, I've bought them before and they lose their shape.

Boden. They are fantastic quality and wash really well. They last years.

Whistles ones are nice, but I think they are about £35. I have a couple from the sales for about £20/25 each and they have been worth it.

I bought an Asda one this summer and it has washed really well. Nice shape, 95% cotton 5% viscose, with rolled sleeves. £4.50.

American Apparel. They also have the advantage of being US manufactured, so no six year old machinists etc. (one presumes!).

Boden are really good and J Crew although a bit on the expensive side.

Thank you, I've bitten the bullet and bought boden. A bit more expensive than I hoped but if they last I don't mind.

I have a Uniqlo T Shirt with IIRC three buttons.
Can't remember how much but it washes and fits really well (I've looked for more of the same style but they don't have them)
Probably about the £15-£18 mark

Arabella and Addison...TK Maxx. Seven quid each. Absolutely lovely, and wash nicely. They feel expensive!
