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

Ladies, have you found 100% cotton Tshirts that are not men's? I gave up the search and bought men's Tshirts that are 100% and I'm already more comfortable!

Uh no.. I don't do wet Tshirt contests

I'm partial to the V-neck cap sleeve T-shirt. Most of the ones I own I bought at Target (pronounced tar-jay ). Every time I go there, I check their inventory. They are usually in the junior department and sizes range from S to XXL. The only men's T-shirts I own are used for painting, staining and varnishing and I got them as hand-me-downs from my son.

Stretchy tops just don't "breeeeeeath" in hot humid weather.

Denise, have you tried the "wicking" t's. They're really comfortable on hot days and the prices have dropped quite a bit. The only problem it's really easy to get pulls in them.

Yep, my wife buys everything two sizes larger for the boat.

The one I have on in my avatar is a Target special. It's loose, pretty (I think) and comfortable. I'm long past stretchy tops.

Yeah Irish but they all seem to have some somthing other then cotton in the "blend". Besides, who buys Tshirts online?

Denise, the "wicking" blends really can outperform cotton.

But I don' t understand what makes a t-shirt men's or lady's. Aren't the buttons all on the same side? :-)

I'd bet the usual culprits (LLBean and LandsEnd) have what you want, in many colors. Open a free LLBean VISA online, and if you don't like what you get, I think the return shipping is free too. Hard to beat that even if WalMart is way cheaper.

And I was all ready to squelch a Ladies of SailNet Wet T-Shirt thread.

Although, I am up for a SailNet Men Full Monty Calendar. Proceeds could go to charity of course.
