THE PEAR NECESSITIES: THE WHITE T-SHIRT

I originally published this blog post over a year and a half ago. It was my first post ever in the Pear Necessities series. Since it’s been a popular post, I wanted to update with recommendations you can shop versus only offering how I think about shopping for t-shirts. 

For me, finding a good fitting t-shirt can be just as challenging and time consuming as finding the perfect pair of jeans, which is kind of crazy since both are staple items in almost everyone’s closet. There are three key things I evaluate when looking for the perfect t-shirts: neckline, fit, and fabric. While these features are a good place to start in figuring out what will work best for your body type, I’ve learned you pretty much always have to try things on to figure out what will work. Let’s be real - this because very few brands are sized the same way.

So I decided to order styles from a variety of brands to figure out which ones are truly pear-friendly! Keep reading to find out what brands I recommend!
