Ladies: Get Your Best Fit in Polos and Knit Shirts

One of the best recent improvements in the apparel industry is the development of ladies styles that are sized to fit women. Women are no longer restricted to wearing a men’s styled shirt in a smaller size. Businesses would invest in custom embroidered shirts to help brand their corporate image but the women wouldn’t wear the “men’s” shirts. Today there are many women’s styles that fit comfortably and are fun to wear. Discard those once worn men’s shirts and read on!

How can you find the best women’s style for you? One of the primary considerations is the fit. The first thing to check when looking for women’s sizes is to make sure that you are not looking at juniors styles. Junior sizes are modeled on teens and tend to cling to the body. The overall length is often shorter and the sleeves may be shorter too. Once you verify that you are looking at women’s sizes, depending on which sizes you need, you may want to choose styles that have extended sizes. Port Authority brand carries many styles in plus sizes in addition to 1X and 2X sizing. Hanes “Hanes for Her” line includes knits cut to fit different silhouettes. Styles are available in “fitted”, classic” and “relaxed silhouettes. Style information includes a silhouette image showing how the style fits on the body. Choosing a brand with additional sizing options is a good choice when purchasing shirts for a group.
