Finally the Shirts I've Been Longing For

For the last several years, every time I raised my arms, I had to either show off my belly that, after carrying four children, is not a flat or pretty sight, or figure out a way to raise my arms and pull my shirt down simultaneously. Suddenly t-shirts are now on the market that are long enough to actually keep me decent and not make the general public nauseated when I try to grab something above my head. It makes me so happy. I actually went out and bought myself several new shirts.

I probably should be stock-piling for the next short t-shirt trend, huh?


It's funny, after you mentioned these, I've seen several other mothers' blogs singing their praises.

Perhaps they'll be such great sellers, they'll never go out of style.

Not that you know me at all, but WHERE did you find these lovely shirts and WHO makes them?!

Mary, they are everywhere right now. I got a bunch at Target in the clearance rows, but Gap, Banana Republic and every one else seem to be carrying them.

Yep. And I wish I'd stock piled when they were shorter, lol. Although. I'm getting used to the style.

With my 6'1" frame, I've joked that I'm going to buy enough t-shirts to last a decade! I've always had to stretch my clothes to be longer, so this trend is a breath of fresh air!

Yes! Yes! Yes! They are everywhere. I stocked up at New York Compant, but I've seen them at other places too.

Now, if I could just find some cute empire shirts roomy enough at the top for a nursing mother...
