I have often been accused of wearing shirts a tad too small for me. I don't like wearing typical T-shirts. I find them billowing and unflattering….. on me. Unlike most people I don't own many T-shirts or buy them when I go to concerts, new restaurants, when I travel or attend other assorted events where T-shirts are typically sold. Normally if I get one for free I give it away. I only own one T-shirt from a concert and it is from The Cranberries tour in 1995. The 2 other T-shirts that I own are an original Laura Croft T-shirt that I got from comic con in 1999 and another one that is signed by Nikki Six from Motley Crue. My friend Sophia loves to retell the story of my famous Harry Potter T-shirt that I wore constantly back in the day when Harry Potter first came out. I am a huge Harry Potter fan and could not find an adult T-shirt that wasn’t cheesy (I know that is an oxymoron, but I don’t care), but I did find one in the children's section of JC Penny. It was white with gold Harry Potter letters written across what should've been the middle part of a child’s torso. The shiny gold letters were right under my chin and of course my midriff showed. (This was way before I had a baby.) My tiny T-shirt wearing became a running joke, and my family bought me a T-shirt from baby gap as a gag gift one year, saying it was just my size.
I feel like shirt T-shirts are something that should be worn whenever you are going to work out or to work in the yard. When I work out (because let’s be honest I don’t do yard work, anymore) I like for my shirts to be fitted and snug. I didn't really realize how small my shirts were until last week when Angel pulled out one of my favorite “T-shirts” which was a Dr. Seuss Green Eggs and Ham T-shirt and put it on (I probably got this one in the kids section too). It did not fit her like a regular T-shirt should, she is only 2, but it did fit her like a nightgown. It was at this point that I came to the conclusion that my family and friends are correct. I do wear my T-shirts tad too fitted. That being said it doesn’t change my preference. Now I have the perfect person to give them to … until they get too tight on her. Then she will have to give them up! There’s no way I am letting my daughter go out with a tight shirt on! ;)
