What To Do If Your Shirt Neck Is Too Big?

Finding the perfect sized T-shirt is often a problem. Many people find that they are given customized T-shirts that they are expected to wear for a variety of reasons and those T-shirts rarely fit well. Yet, what do you do with a free T-shirt or a shirt that is for a special event and everyone else is wearing it? One of the most common problems with one-size-fits-all T-shirts and ones that are bulk-ordered without specific sizes in mind is that the shirt neck is often too big.

One of the best solutions is to wear an undershirt under your T-shirt. You can match up the color of the oversized T-shirt with an undershirt of the same color for a seamless look. You can also opt for a contrasting color so the layering stands out more and gives you a stand out from the crowd look. By putting another shirt under the one you need or want to wear, women can cover up sufficiently to avoid a risqué look or in the case of men, too much chest hair showing.

If you are in a situation where time is a premium and you don’t have an undershirt to wear or can’t wear it for some reason, double-sided tape will also solve your problem. Simply position the T-shirt as it looks best, tuck it in to keep it taut and gently place double sided tape inside the shirt so it adheres in strategic places to your skin and the shirt. This way the neckline doesn’t shift and overexpose you.

Since the biggest problem with a shirt neck that is too big is the risk of it moving and showing you off too much, anything you can do to help tighten it overall so that is doesn’t move is helpful. Tie a knot in the end of the shirt to get it under control. You can also put a clamp-style paper clip on the back.
