Finding your favourite t-shirt is not just about quality. It's about finding your perfect fit and style.

We're all unique which is why we have worked hard to curate key wardrobe pieces that suit and flatter all types of body shapes with our range of necklines and styles.

But how do you know which style is most suited to you?

We teamed with Stylist, HelenLeeLoves, to bring you tips on how to find your perfect tee by looking at necklines, style and fit.

Over to you Helenlee…

 

THE V NECK RANGE

Everybody can look great in a V-neck, it draws the eye up and can flatter your face, silhouettes with a bigger bust or broad shoulders can also appear smaller.

The key to wearing this classic, versatile neckline is to choose the depth of the V that best fits your bust size. Thankfully The White T-shirt Co have perfected the V depth, it is not too low and not too high. It is just right, no need for camisoles.

WHO WILL SUIT A V-NECKLINE?

The V Neckline tops in this range will suit Hourglass, Inverted Triangle and Apple shapes best. It is especially flattering on ladies with a larger bust.

  • Small to large bust
  • Petite, apple, athletic and curvy shapes
  • Small to wide shoulders

Whether you invest in this Neckline will depend on the sleeve, style and fit.

Read my Body Shape guide to help you identify your own body shape.

WHAT ABOUT THE SLEEVE, STYLE & FIT?

The Fitted 3/4 Length Sleeve - The 3/4 sleeve is extremely flattering if you want to draw attention to your waist, where the sleeve length finishes is where the eye is drawn to. It is a lovely stretch fit material that looks fantastic tucked into anything mid-high waisted or out over leggings. This style is available in colours black and white.

If you are very tummy conscious and don't feel comfortable in tops that cling to your middle then I would recommend going for the Relaxed Short Sleeve V Neck T-shirt instead.

The Relaxed Short Sleeve V Neck T-shirt - This short sleeve V neck t-shirt looks great on Apple, Hourglass, Pear and Inverted Triangle shapes. The shorter sleeve length will look great on all shapes mentioned above, however, I would recommend ladies with a larger bust pairing this with a sleeved cardigan or blazer.

It is a lovely soft cotton with a relaxed fit that is flattering on everyone as long as you buy the right size. This style looks great over the top of jeans or with the front tucked in.

THE CREW NECK RANGE

Known as a round neck, this classic style will accentuate your face and shoulders. This is always the most popular and versatile neckline for a cotton Tee.

WHO WILL SUIT A CREW NECKLINE?

A round neck gives great definition to the shoulder and neck area, this ideal for anyone with sloping shoulders and smaller busts. I recommend this neckline most for Rectangle, Pear and Hourglass depending on bust size.

  • Small to medium bust
  • Long neck
  • Small-Wide shoulders

WHAT ABOUT THE SLEEVE, STYLE AND FIT?

The round neck styles are available in both Fitted and Relaxed styles, with short and long sleeves available in both collections. Perfect for layering under a jacket in the Fitted styles or dressed up or down in the Relaxed.

Long sleeves - are very flattering on rectangle body shape, if you are a pear or hourglass I suggest rolling your sleeves up towards your elbows. The short sleeve round neck t-shirt is available in both Fitted and Relaxed styles.

The long sleeve T-shirts are available in a really neat bodysuit or a long sleeve round neck t-shirt you can wear out or tucked it. If you only plan to wear it tucked in, the bodysuit is an amazing option. Both styles contain a little elasatne for extra fit but are thick enough not feel or look unflattering.


The long sleeve t-shirts and bodysuits are available in Black, White and Marl Grey.

The short sleeve Tee - comes in Fitted and Relaxed style. I am wearing the fitted shape below, this style looks great tucked in, the relaxed t-shirt looks better over the top of jeans for a relaxed casual look. The relaxed fit is a lovely very soft, pure organic cotton and the fitted contains just a little elastane for extra fit. Both great investments!

The fitted round neck T-shirt range is available in Black, White and Marl Grey. The relaxed pure organic cotton round neck is available in White, Black Pale Grey, Pale Blue and classic Navy.

THE SCOOP NECK RANGE

Scoop necks are a friend to almost all body types! This deeper, wider neckline style will draw the eye downward, lengthening your neck and accentuating your collarbone.

The White T Shirt Co have really thought of everything, you can shop for a smaller scoop or wider/deeper scoop. Brilliant!

WHO WILL SUIT A SCOOP NECKLINE?

I highly recommend the wide scoop for smaller busts, Rectangle and Pear shapes as it gives the illusion of wider shoulders. The smaller scoop will look best on an hourglass, pear, inverted triangle and larger busts. There is also a great relaxed t-shirt option that will look great on an Apple shape.

  • Small to large bust
  • Athletic, pear, hourglass and petite shapes
  • Shorter neck or décolletage

WHAT ABOUT THE SLEEVES, STYLE AND FIT?

This scoop neck range is the most varied and impressive T-shirt range. There is a loose fit wide scoop, loose fit short sleeve, relaxed short sleeve, fitted short sleeve, fitted 3/4 sleeve, 3/4 sleeve and short sleeve self-faced scoops and a vest version. WOW!

Now that really is catering for all body shapes, BRAVO White T-shirt Co.

The smaller scoop comes in a fitted, relaxed and 3/4 sleeve. The fitted and 3/4 sleeve will look great on an hourglass, Pear and inverted triangle. The loose fit is fab for on an apple shape and lastly, the long sleeve will work great for a rectangle shape.
