171  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: plus-size blank t-shirts? on: February 08, 2006 07:09:34 AM

And for some reason they beleive that all fat people wear snowman applicaid shirts and sweat pants.

I have always wondered about that... who is the designer who can make that carp and then respect themself in the morning? It seems that the fashion community in general thinks big= fashion moron. It makes no sense to me because the "average" American IS larger. So why the heck are they still designing for size 6 and below?
Does anyone else have the problem with "plus" sized tank tops that have arm holes that are 3 feet in diameter? Everytime I find a tank top I have to alter it because the arm holes fall almost down to my waist. Why do they make them so damned big? I don't care _how_ big somebody is they will not have armpits the size of the Grand Canyon!  Shocked
Sorry - I'll get off the soapbox now.

HI! I have been reading here for a while and thought I would chime in about a good find...
WalltoWal Mart has some really nice 3/4 sleeve tees - solid colored- that have a "sensible" cut. There is a wee bit of stretch and they are fitted but not tight AND they are a good length - not a tunic but not hoochie length. ( A serious concern for someone who has had three babies!) They also have a nice almost batteau neck - but not too wide so that your bra straps are sticking out.
I got mine for $6.50 and I loved it so much I went back and got others in various colors and doubles of black and white so I could do some stenciling.  Grin They are a perfect blank canvas!
I believe it is their "Wild Stag" or "Faded Glory" brand - and they were folded on a table, not on hangers.
Absolutely amazing to me when I find shirts that are cool but sensible for a bigger chickie...which we all know does not happen often, so I thought I'd share.

I have to say this is my favorite. I usually lurk - but I had to give a pat on the back for this! It is reminding me of the makeshift "tobacco pipes" people I knew in high school had.  Wink
My husband just got a new job in a plumming supply warehouse - so I am going to have to try something like this myself. THANKS for sharing and Happy Multi Cultural End of the Year Festivities!
