After you get breast implants, you pretty much accept the fact that you're never going to find a crew neck t-shirt that you are perfectly happy with. I'm still on that search, but this long-sleeve crew neck by J.Tomson gets the silver medal for getting closer than anyone ever has. Is it perfect? No.
But is it worth it? Yes.
Here's the thing with crew necks... they add an element of complication that most v-neck or scoop neck t-shirts don't have. I don't know about you, but I can't stand when a crew neck t-shirt feels like it's choking me all day long.
Add to that mix, when you are bigger than a B-cup, you have to make sure it has spandex, that the length is long enough, and what about the sleeve length... blah, blah, blah. You've heard it all before, right?
And that's exactly why I really like this shirt. It doesn't choke the heck out of me, it's got 5% spandex, the length is great, the sleeves are plenty long, and it's really affordable, too.
Then what's the problem?
There are two things keeping this shirts from getting five gold stars...
First, I wish the fabric was a little thicker.
The darker colors (all of which, I love!) help them from being see-through, but I would gladly pay 30–40% more for something like this if it were a little thicker. I'll talk out of the other side of my mouth for a second and say that the weight is perfect for layering.
The weight is also great for a 68° day in early Spring.
I'm a woman. I want it both ways.
Second, why no short sleeve version?
I really wish these came in short sleeves. I'd buy lots of them, too. Get on it, J.Tomson.
Oh, yeah. One other thing...
These are definitely a snug fit, so size up if you want to hide some imperfections. I've got these in Small and Medium, and both serve me in totally different ways. I'm 5'3", 115lbs., and a 32DD and my husband LOVES when I wear the small. (I should really take pictures of me wearing all this stuff, shouldn't I? I'll come back and do that after I'm not pregnant anymore).
I feel like I'm rambling, so I'll wrap this up. Overall, they aren't perfect, but they are really nice shirts. I think you'll like them, too :-)
