Can I Wear a Fitted T-Shirt if I Am Not Completely Thin?

Fitted t-shirts

Being completely thin is a preoccupation that a lot of people have these days. One of the most difficult aspects of fashion is that many types of clothes are made for smaller sizes or are tailored to be worn by people who are very thin. However, just because a shirt is tailored to have a fitted silhouette doesn’t mean that you have to be completely thin to wear it.

A fitted shirt is one that can either be used to show off your figure or to make your figure look different than it is. People who are rectangle shaped, with few curves; often like to wear a fitted shirt that nips in a little at the waist in order to make their figures look more balanced. In this case, it doesn’t matter whether the person is completely thin or not.

For women who are pear shaped, a fitted shirt can be worn that is fitted more tightly at the top in order to bring visual attention to the top half instead of the bottom half. This then flatters the figure, even if pear-shaped figured aren’t completely thin.

Women who are apple shaped usually will not have their figure flattered by a fitted t-shirt. Although it isn’t necessary to be completely thin to wear a fitted t-shirt, having a thick apple shape is not the right figure type to wear this type of shirt.
If you are self-conscious about your weight and you don’t feel that a fitted shirt will flatter your particular figure type, it might be better to stay away from fitted shirts in order to wear one that fits more loosely. The looser fit means that the shirt won’t cling to curves and make any problem areas apparent.

If you have some figure faults, the solution is often to choose one that is fitted in some spots but not in others. To get this fit, the shirts can be tailored by a local tailor, or they can be bought in specific cuts that will be the most flattering.
For someone who is completely thin, wearing a fitted t-shirt may not actually be the best look. A shirt that is fitted and is form fitting can show off a lack of curves that sometimes happens when a person is very thin. In these cases, wearing a t-shirt that is less figure hugging can leave a little more to the imagination and can keep away the appearance of having no curves.

If you have a fitted t-shirt and you’ve been too self conscious to wear it because you don’t feel you are thin enough to do so, pulling off any look is largely a matter of self-confidence. Don’t be too afraid to wear a t-shirt that you like, even if you have a few figure areas to work on. Everyone has areas of their figure that they aren’t pleased with. Remember that whenever your confidence flags and you may find the self-confidence to wear your fitted t-shirts even if you aren’t completely thin.

Will My Breasts Stretch My T-Shirt?

The answer to this question is not as easy as a yes or no. Many people are worried that their T-shirts will be stretched out of shape by their breasts. Whether or not this will happen will depend on several different factors. The first factor is what fabric the T-shirt is made from. Cotton is a very stretchy, springy material that does tend to be stretched to fit the shape of the person wears it. If the T-shirt is made from cotton, there is a much higher chance that your breasts will stretch out your T-shirt.

However, whether or not this happens will further depend on how large your breasts are and what the size of the T-shirt is.  If you have very large breasts and wear form-fitting T-shirts, or T-shirts that are very tight, you have a very good chance of stretching your T-shirt with your breasts. But, this does not have to be a bad thing. When cotton stretches to accommodate the figure, it is stretching to conform to your body. This makes it accommodate you better and gives you an individual, customized fit that other fabrics can’t provide. The T-shirt may have an area that is stretched, but it is stretched just for you and the T-shirt will fit you very well once this has happened.

If your breasts are relatively small, you may not do much stretching of your T-shirts at all. Of course, if your T-shirts fit very tightly, you will stretch the T-shirt to some degree. If you wear your T-shirts a little bit looser, however, you don’t have much stretching to worry about. If you don’t want to stretch your T-shirts and have a history of doing so, simply choose a T-shirt that is one size larger than you would have otherwise bought for yourself.

Large, roomy T-shirts will give you a much smaller chance of them becoming stretched by your breasts. Even if your breasts are very large, you can keep from stretching your T-shirts by wearing loose sizes. Remember however that cotton can shrink slightly and that this should be taken into account before buying the t-shirt.

If you tend to stretch T-shirts even when you are wearing a larger size than you feel you need, the problem may be the bra you are wearing. It is important to wear a bra that will hold your breasts in place and keep them from moving independently from your body. This type of motion is often what causes the T-shirt stretching. Wearing a minimizing bra is also a way to keep from stretching a T-shirt. If you have large breasts, there are a number of brands that make minimizing bras that can take an inch or two from your bust line and create a sleeker silhouette. This means that you may not have to buy a larger size at all to keep from stretching out your T-shirt with your breasts. Or, if you do choose a larger size, you will have much less chance of stretching out that T-shirt.
