T-shirt sizing is very important in pulling together a sharp looking outfit. It is easily as important as matching, ironing and dressing for the occasion. For most people it is very easy to tell if a shirt is too small, but it is more difficult to determine if it is too big. Therefore, using certain easy-to-follow guidelines will help you make that determination very easily.
When you try on a T-shirt look in the mirror and check where the shoulder seams lay. The sewn line where the sleeve meets the body of the T-shirt should be sitting at the edge of your shoulder, if it fits properly. If that seam is resting on your upper arm, the T-shirt you are wearing is too big for you. Shoulder fit is one of the most well-known and easiest determinants of whether or not a T-shirt actually fits.
Another aspect of the T-shirt to look at when determining if it is too big for you is the length of it. If the T-shirt completely covers your behind, it is too big. In fact, at that length it is almost a dress. It should cover about half of your backside. Such T-shirts are fine to keep in your closet and use them at certain times.
If you tuck in a T-shirt and it bunches and creates noticeable bumps under your clothing, chances are the tee is too big for you. A well-fitting T-shirt should be able to be tucked into a pair of pants or a skirt smoothly without bunching. In addition, if you can adjust the T-shirt easily by a quick tug here or there, it must also be too big. A T-shirt that fits well is never that easy to adjust.
The good news is that even T-shirts that are too big are useful. They are great to sleep in. They make wonderful smocks for crafts or while painting. They can be your official cleaning the house T-shirts. They make good cover-ups for swimming or while at the beach.
There are many looks that even require oversized T-shirts. Skate boarders usually wear big tees. For those into hip hop, the culture dictates oversized T-shirts. An urban look or a gangster look are often characterized by oversized T-shirts also. However, by no means does wearing a large T-shirt mean that you belong to one of these groups. Some people simply feel more comfortable wearing a roomier T-shirt instead of one that is too revealing.
