Choosing the right t-shirt may seem like an easy task on the surface. However, when you try it on and feel like it doesn’t look good and doesn’t sit properly. This can be frustrating. But there is no need to worry, as we have got you covered. Read on for the ultimate guide on how to choose the perfect T-shirt for you.
What is your size?
There is only one place to begin, and this is by getting the size right. Since buying online means you can’t try the garment on first, you should always refer to the size guide on the shop you are purchasing from to get the right measurements. At one shop a medium may be different to a medium at another shop. It is all about the dimensions that the shop uses, and so you should never skip on the size guide.
When buying from A.M. Custom Clothing, you can take a look at the size guide that we have on the A.M. Shop to get a better understanding. You’ll find size guides on each of our product pages for the product you’re looking at (all products have different guides). If you’re not able to find a size guide or are confused, just get in touch.
Determining whether a t-shirt fits
There are a number of things you can do to determine whether or not a t-shirt fits, the easiest is to look at the shoulder fit. The seam along the shoulders should extend cross the centre of your shoulder to the very top of the arm. Everything else should fall into place if this part is right.
Aside from this, though, there are a number of other things you should check. For example, you will want to make certain that the t-shirt is the correct length. To do this, lift your arms. Your stomach should not be exposed when you do.
The tightness of the t-shirt is another area of consideration. You will look shapeless if it hangs awkwardly or is too loose. If the t-shirt is too tight, your least flattering contours are going to be on display for everyone to see. It is a good idea to go for a t-shirt with a tailored torso if you are slim, as this will make sure it does not swallow you up! If you are larger, it is a good idea to go for a t-shirt with a structure that is going to give you a bit of extra room, like a classic fit.
Choosing a t-shirt for your body shape
Another piece of advice is to choose a t-shirt based on your body shape. The first thing you need to do is determine what sort of body shape you have. The good news is that there are a lot of illustrative guides online today that can help you with this.
Once you know what body shape you have, you will then be able to decide on the best sorts of t-shirts for you. For example, if you are a man and you have a little bit more weight on your middle and hips with slimmer shoulders, then you have a triangle shape. If this applies, a classic cut would work well.
Let’s give an example for women as well. If you have an hourglass figure, this means that you have a narrower waist and your bust and hip measurements are even. A classic cut or a slim cut would be flattering on this sort of figure.
Choosing a style of t-shirt
Last but not least, you want to make sure that the style of t-shirt is right for you. Of course, only you know your personal sense of style, and so we won’t tell you what sort of colours or designs you should go for.
Nevertheless, you should consider whether you should opt for a baggy, classic, or slim t-shirt. Baggy t-shirts have become very popular recently. However, they tend to be more suitable for casual situations, so keep this in mind. You will want to consider where the t-shirt is going to be worn, as well as the style that is going to be most flattering on you and suit the other garments you are wearing.
As you can see, there is a lot that needs to be considered when it comes to selecting the perfect t-shirt. If you carefully consider each of these points, you can be certain that you are going to find the right t-shirt for you. You’ll notice the difference as soon as you put it on.
