I awways wear men's T shirts and polo shirts because I like them loose and long, and made out of very heavy cotton ones. I'm looking for some with a slightly more feminine cut, but still long enough to cover my bottom, and not made out of the very thin material that women's shirts seem to be made out of. Can anyone help?

Sainsbury's £3 Fairtrade t-shirt is quite nice - slightly shaped, thick-ish material and long enough to cover my large bottom! The only downside is that the sleeves are a little shorter than I'd ideally like but wearable just the same.

Has anyone tried the Land's End women's T shirts? i've only had the men's ones.

I know you might not like this BUT if you have a big bum, wearing a T shirt pulled over it will only a) draw attention to it and b) make it look bigger.

What you should be doing is wearing a waist length/ high hip-length top, which accentuates your good points- a good waistline, or a good bust!, with some nice beads or something- and well-fitting trousers in a dark shade.

But I like to wear long Indiany-type skirts with a long plain tunic type top over them because I am an aging hippy!

i think your looking for something like that..
feminine print but men's size
try something a little mre fitted
i bet it will suit you better instead of covering up!
