You may have seen people wearing t-shirts under their basketball jerseys and wondered whether this is a good idea. There are a number of reasons why people wear this look. For many people, there is a matter of personal comfort, a matter of the way the basketball jersey fits as well as a matter of their own personal style.
Basketball jerseys tend to be very thin, flimsy garments. For this reason, it can be extremely cold when a person is wearing a basketball jersey. One way to combat the cold is to wear a t-shirt under the basketball jersey. Because basketball jerseys usually fit very loosely, wearing a t-shirt under one is never a problem. A t-shirt under the jersey will keep a person insulated until it is time for the game. Other than players, many people wear their basketball jerseys to school or when going to a game to watch as a spectator. During this time, wearing a t-shirt under the jersey can make it far more comfortable to keep the jersey on for a long period of time.
In addition to the temperature factor, there is also a matter of style. Many people wear a t-shirt under their basketball jersey because they want to make a casual style statement. Wearing their favorite color under it is a way to demonstrate their own personality and style while still wearing the team’s jersey. If you want to show off your own personal style as well as your love for the team, wear a t-shirt that corresponds to one of the colors on the jersey. That makes for a completed look and one that has a lot of visual impact.
And for some people, wearing a basketball jersey simply feels too revealing. Basketball jerseys generally have perforations to allow an athlete some air circulation. This can help when a person is sweating and needs air flowing through their jersey to cool them down. However, wearing a basketball jersey off the basketball court can make some people feel too self-conscious. The perforations make the garment extremely revealing, particularly for girls. To keep this from occurring, wearing a t-shirt under a basketball jersey can give a person the coverage that they need to feel confident.
For some people, disguising their figure flaws is the idea behind wearing the t-shirt. Because basketball jerseys tend to be so thin, a t-shirt can make it more difficult to see any flaws that the person doesn’t want to reveal. A loose t-shirt under the jersey can make the person’s figure completely unrecognizable in the outfit. A tighter t-shirt can simply add a little more coverage without adding bulk to the person’s figure.
For people who sweat a lot, they may feel less self-conscious about it if they are wearing a t-shirt under the jersey. This will allow the cotton t-shirt to soak up some of the sweat and to make them a little more comfortable. It will also keep them from worrying about how they will look when they start to sweat.
