Here’s the comparison of me wearing each tee. These were all taken on the same day in consecutive order. I’m wearing the same pants, underwear, and shoes. You can see a big difference in how they fit me. The gray tee is the softest with a really nice drape. The turquoise, white graphic, and peach have the best thickness and are the easiest to sew. The white graphic has hardly any drape at all. The looser tees are great for fitted bottoms. The fitted tees I wear with both loose and fitted bottoms. The gray and the turquoise are almost too long. The gray and the floral have less recovery so the necklines are lower. I often am adjusting those during the day because they feel too low.
I wear most of them half tucked at the front because they are either too long or too short. I do wear all of them, but I’m going to do something to the floral and peach tee to lengthen them slightly. I don’t like how short they are and was really surprised that they shrunk so much in the wash.
