Having clothes fit right is the key to dressing successfully. If you wear things that are too small, it gives the image of not caring how you look or that you are trying to dress provocatively. If you wear things that are too large, it looks sloppy or like you are trying to hide under oversized clothing. It may even look like you are wearing someone else’s clothes. Wearing properly fitting clothes is essential to a neat, pulled-together look.
Luckily it is very easy to tell if your T-shirt fits properly or not. You simply need to look at how your T-shirt falls on your shoulder. The seams of the tee where the sleeve meets the body of the shirt should be at the edge of your shoulder if it is the correct size for you. If that seam is closer to your neck, then the T-shirt is too small and you should choose the next size up. If the shoulder seam is on your upper arm, the shirt is definitely too large for you. You can still wear it and it will make for a great beach cover-up or T-shirt to sleep in. However, for everyday wear, you may want to opt for a smaller shirt that fits right.
When you are trying T-shirts on for size, remember the shoulder seam rule. You also need to keep in mind the fact that T-shirts always shrink a little with washing and you should account for that in terms of sizing. If you are choosing between 2 shirts and one is almost too small and the other almost too big, based on the shoulder seam rule, you should go with the bigger one. Inevitably, shrinkage will make the smaller one too small and the bigger one just perfect.
When shopping for T-shirts, do not assume that all brands will fit the same in the same size. One brand may be larger or smaller than another. Some brands tend to be more fitted or longer or shorter than others. That is why it is important to try them on for size or if you are buying online, check the dimensions and compare them to a shirt you own that fits well. Once you know that a certain brand fits you perfectly, it will make T-shirt buying much easier and quicker.
If you take a good look at your T-shirt wardrobe and realize that you have a bunch of tees that simply don’t follow the shoulder seam rule, it may be time to buy new ones. In order to look your best, get new properly fitted tees to replace those that are too big or too small.
