How to shop for the best size

When you think of going for an oversized t-shirt, there is probably a fear that it will not flatter your figure. The general rule is to go one or two sizes higher than your normal size. What this means is that if you normally wear a size small (S), you should shop for medium (M) or large (L).

Lounge oversized t-shirts

If you do not need to go out and will be lounging all day, you should choose oversized t-shirts made with cotton, rayon, or viscose. The t shirt should feel like pyjamas in that it should be thin, free-flowing, with a simple neckline, and the shirt should also have a good stretch as a bonus.
