I was asked recently on Twitter about the best T-Shirts, which is a good question but one where the answer is a bit tricky. Best T-Shirts are like best jeans – it’s what suits you, really. Everyone goes on about J Brands and I’ve got a pair and… they really have not changed my life. They really don’t look that great.
But for what it’s worth I am entirely devoted to T Shirts by Hush. They are made of a nice lightweight cotton that washes well. It has a nice tight V neck at the top (so doesn’t slide around and reveal your bra strap) good short sleeves and is very forgiving around the midriff. I’ve got one in every colour – some colours I’ve got two. The sizing is also flatteringly generous: I am a solid 10-12 and take an XS.
Best of all, they’re only £27. Hush has a disconcerting habit of being sold out of very popular things, but at the moment they seem flush with T-Shirts, so don’t delay.
Nice! How long are they? I have short legs and a long body so need my T shirts to be really long or else they look terrible on me.
yes yes me too – long back disease is the technical term! they fit me and I am a freak so will fit you too xxx

I wish I could find some w this kind of neckline but w slightly longer sleeves ( to hide my flabby upper arms, boo hoo😫)
I like these! I have a very short body and long legs, but I wear long tops to balance me out so I don’t look like a toffee apple. There’s nothing worse than picking up a nice jumper in a shop and discovering it’s 3 inches too short.
story of my life
The men’s v-necks at American Apparell are very long in the body and come in every colour. Fabric is soft and gets softer and more delicate after a few washes. For the price, I don’t mind that they fall apart after about 2 years. I get the S which is I think around a size 14, but they, of course, also come in XS and XXS. Sleeves are a little longer than hush
