Re: T shirts, 100% cotton a must (and wet T contests)

Jeesh, I am constantly amazed at how every thread in this topic gets taken over by the guys!

Anyhow Denise I have the same problem. I think we both live in very hot climates and most women's T shirts are not 100% cotton these days. Over here they are more likely to be at least 50% lycra... lycra in 47 *C?? If I do find cotton T's, they are either too heavy for this heat, or only in very small sizes. So, I often end up buying men's T's too.

Maybe we should start our own line?

Don't men's t-shirts make it hard for you, with the buttons on the wrong side? :-)

The lyrca is no doubt a conspiracy, designed for or by women who want to show off their assets and dress up even when they're dressing down.

Re: T shirts, 100% cotton a must (and wet T contests)

YOFY, your point is probably valid but in our defence many of us only see "new posts". I certainly rarely notice what forum I'm in. Then again the Wombet reckons I have trouble with own name .....

Anywho, to continue on, I find it utterly amazing the limitations on woman's clothing. recently I bought a bunch of cotton tees and some socks online. The Wombet liked what she saw (hey I am one cute Fuzzball) but neither the socks nor the tees were available in small sizes. The only tees available were at least part synthetic and seemingly women cannot wear plain designs, some form of ruching being de regeur.

Still and all ... finding a decent off the shoulder frock in a bloke's sizing is damned difficult as well.

Re: T shirts, 100% cotton a must (and wet T contests)

here in tropical mexico i wear only cottton. nothing else is cool enough to prevent heat prostration. i watch folks here wearing clothing made for god knows what climate--not cotton--sweating profusely and they cannot cool off because the material of their clothing is not allowing the skin to receive cool air. cotton does this.
wicking action is not enough. the material must breathe. cotton does this.
cotton also does not melt into your skin, in the event of fire, as do ALL synthetic materials and blends--except nomex.
i will not wear t shirts in either winter or summer as they are way too hot. also most uncomfortable in this humid climate.
i will wear loose all cotton clothing i find here locally.

mens ribbed tank undershirts, commonly known as wife beaters , make great dresses for on board..all cottonand doesnt matter what you do to them., they will always be the same. i use XL. comes midthigh....XL tall is best....

Re: T shirts, 100% cotton a must (and wet T contests)

For those wondering, I have seen a T that looks like a wet Tshirt, or what might be construed to be a wet t-shirt! All it takes is a god artist and a silkscreening setup......and voila!

Well any how, Hanes T's work pretty well too, from weating them daily at work on hot day. Yes a size or two too big is nicer than one that is on the tight size.......


Then there are them x-dressing marsupials.........oh dear, do not want to picture that at all! That might be worst than the fugly mod in a speedo, or his fugly dog spike.

Re: T shirts, 100% cotton a must (and wet T contests)

Another thing I find about cotton t's, is heavier ones in lighter colors are actually cooler and pull what sweat I do away better than thinner cotton fabrics. They also do not seem to get drenched as Chuckles points out his do. Then again, some sweat in streams, others or a bit luckier. I would probably have made a good marine drill Sargent due to the fact I am not a heavy sweater!
