How to Choose your T-shirt Size

Buying the Correct Size T-Shirt

(Oh, the wailing and the gnashing of the teeth!!)

The No. 1 way to get the correct size t-shirt is to buy a brand you already own.  So if you're looking at buying a Bella + Canvas t-shirt or tank top, and you already own one that fits you, THEN BUY THAT SIZE.  Don't make me get up and -- no, no, I won't say that.  Gotta remember what the lawyers said.

The next best way is to follow the sizing guide put out by the t-shirt maker.  Hopefully, they will have one.  Not to toot our own horn (yes, we really are), every t-shirt, tank top, hoodie, sweatshirt, etc., on sale on Mr. Shazz (at has a sizing chart on each product page.

Personally, as a man, I would choose a size larger if I wasn't sure.  Since I've never been a woman, I'll not venture into what they prefer to do.  I'll end this by saying if you buy a t-shirt that is a little bit large, you can still wear it, but if you buy one that is too small, you have an expensive cleaning rag.
