Putting on a t-shirt is something people learn how to do when they’re young, but it is something that a lot of people re-examine as they get older. The problem that many see is that when putting on a shirt, they don’t want to stretch out specific parts of it. After a t-shirt has been worn a number of times, it may get stretched out in any number of places.
One of the most common places for stretching to occur is at the neck. When the neck of a t-shirt gets stretched out, it can cause the t-shirt to wrinkle around the neck. It can also cause the collar from lying flat against the skin. This can make the collar gap around the neck and can keep the t-shirt from looking the way the wearer intended it to look. Instead, a gaping neck can begin to look sloppy as it continues to be stretched out over time.
To keep a t-shirt from getting stretched out at the collar, many people try to put their arms through the t-shirt first. After the arms are partially through, the head can be put through the collar. This keeps the t-shirt wearer from having to pull the neck of the t-shirt down to angle the shirt for the arms.
If the head is put through first every time the t-shirt is worn, the neck may eventually get stretched out, but it is also possible to stretch out the arms of the t-shirt over time. If the neck of a t-shirt doesn’t seem to be stretching and the arms do, it might be time to reverse the way the t-shirt is being put on and start with the head first instead of the arms. This will keep the arms from stretching out when the t-shirt is being put on and it will put the stress instead on the neck hole.
It is possible to put on a t-shirt by putting both the arms and the head through the t-shirt at the same time. This will minimize any stretching on any one part of the t-shirt. To do this, put the t-shirt above your head and stretch your arms out into the inside. Then, put your hands through the arm holes. Let the t-shirt fall down over your head and move your arms to allow the t-shirt to slip downward.
For some people, getting the neck stretched out on the shirt is a necessary way to make the shirt more comfortable. If that’s the case, always put in the t-shirt head first. You will have to tug on the t-shirt to allow your head to get through first, and this will enlarge the neck over time. If you’re more comfortable putting on the t-shirt with your arms first, try stretching out the collar before you put on the shirt. If you get into this habit, you will be able to put on the shirt any way you like and still stretch the neck every time you put it on.
