where can I get them in assorted colours please ???

Any idea...the sort of thing years ago you would have bought from Racing Green....who remembers that ??!!

I remember them! Try Petit Bateau or Agnes B. Not sure whether they do mail order.

god, this is irritating, thought I had it in my favourites - there's this fantastic site, talked about on mumsnet before where it's all cotton tshirts, long, 3/4, short in a rainbow of colours - great quality

bugger, off to search mumsnet, maybe someone will remember while I'm looking.

I think Uniqlo ones are pretty good (and very cheap).

I like the new M&S ones. Lovely soft material, wash well and good colours. Very sleek. Not too pricey either.

Gap are okay. They seem to be a mix of no-lycra which crease and look a bit tatty quickly, or too much lycra but good for layering under short sleeved jumpers etc. Topshop have some thin ones for layering at th emoment too

Good point cod. I am a short arse (5'2") and they are perfect for me (can't stand tops that cling to my bum) so they might be too short for long bodied people.

boden parisienne tee - brilliant but hell of a long wait for them now, think i got in at the right time. ame=Women&styid=WL437

Worth getting in every colour, really good quality and fit.

I'm going to say Primark. they are nice and long in the body, and you can get thinnies for layering, or thicker jersey. All £4 a pop or there abouts.

I think Primark is turning into the bruschetta and Eton Mess of the clothes threads....

primark shrinks in the wash, and they twist.
m&s too short in the sleeve.
gap good, have bought some new ones this season, will have to see how they survive multiple washing machine experiences...
saw nice t-shirts in jigsaw, usually quite good quality...

maidamess Tue 23-Sep-08 16:51:54

disagree about them shrinking in wash.

orangina Tue 23-Sep-08 16:57:09

(mine shrunk, but am happy to agree that maybe mine were unlucky.... grin)

Like Gap Ts, v long, wore my normal size until 7 months pg without exposing tummy.

Primark not bad at fraction of price. I thought they washed OK. Also long.

Muji good, but limited colours.

M&S good, but short.

Have had some surprisingly good ls tees from Sainsburys.

Had had some v poor ls tees from Hawkshead.
