A bit thinner white T than I thought it would be from the picture
on 5 January 2013
So you'll want to wear something over this, which is the only reason I gave this white long sleeve t-shirt only 4 stars-I was really hoping for a thicker t-shirt; otherwise this is a great tee for several reasons: good colour-stayed bright white through the hot wash, washes and dries well without twisting. Soft, and a longer length than a lot of other ladies t-shirts, too.
I just wish the fabric was a bit thicker because I wanted to wear these as a base layer to fight our cold, damp NE Scotland weather. I needed these to be of a 'winter weight', and they are more 'spring-summer' weight base layer garments.
I waited to review this until after a couple washes-the label said a hot wash was ok so I let 'er have it, lol, a full 90C wash for cottons and threw in some white bath towels too. I don't have a tumble dryer so the three I ordered and received (three days ahead of last estimated delivery, well done seller!) went through the hot wash and then air dried by the wood stove. The t-shirts are fast drying, probably due to the thinness.
After two washings, these are very impressive-NO shrinkage, no twisting, no dingy look and the t-shirts seem to soften even more with each wash. I've washed, worn, and washed again, and the t-shirts have come out of the clothes washer looking new.
I will be browsing the seller's other t-shirts to see if I can find a thicker one that is more of a winter weight, but am definitely keeping these for use this spring and summer. The price on this t-shirt in white is very good even with delivery charge, and the seller got the order to me very quickly in spite of the time of year.
