my perfect white T

Everyone needs the basic wardrobe staple, a plain white T.  I love denim paired with a white t-shirt.  Add a few accessories and you have the perfect no fuss outfit!   While it may seem ridiculous, I have four STEADFAST requirements for t-shirts {of any color}.  Everyone’s body type calls for a different type of t-shirt.

The following describes my perfect white T:

A “V” or scoop neckline.  I am quite busty.  These two necklines are the most flattering for girls with curves up top.

Light weight cotton.  The lighter material the better. Heavy cotton T’s add bulk, which no one wants.  Be careful when buying thin white T’s.  Unless you plan to wear a bright, colorful bra {a bold move} you don’t want the T to be see through.  Make sure to try it on with the bra you plan to wear.

Short/cap sleeve.  A cap sleeve is the most flattering on me.  The sleeve hem hits right at the thinnest part of my arm. I don’t know about you, but I usually judge a picture a “keeper” if my arms look good.

A loose but feminine cut.   Thanks to my children and middle-age my mid-section is the least favorite part of my body.  If the t-shirt is too tight, it only accentuates this “problem area” {God, I hate that term!}.  I prefer a loose, but feminine, cut that skims my body but doesn’t cling to my tummy.

So that is my perfect T.  If I had a different body type I would love to play with the classic T and tons of layered necklaces or a boat neck t-shirt paired with classic trousers.  But I don’t, so I stick to what looks best on me.

Have you thought about it?   What are the requirements for YOUR perfect white T?
