Whisper Cotton V-Neck Pocket Tee

Whisper Cotton V-Neck Pocket Tee is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 947.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice basic tee I got this in white and it is perfect as that basic wardrobe staple. The fabric is light and airy, sort of like the "burnout" sheerness style, but not see through like burnout. You do need to make sure you wear a nude bra, though. Great length and perfect balance of not-too-loose yet not remotely tight. I'm sure I'll wear it frequently until it gets pit stains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect T!! This is my new favorite basic t-shirt! Perfect v-neck that isn't too deep and a slightly drapey fit. The material is lightweight but not too sheer (I own the white and don't have complaints about it being see-through). I'm 5' 6", 115 lbs and like the fit of the XS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Off duty uniform I wish I had one in every color! For now I'll make do with white and a teal I purchased in the past. Normally wear a Small (5'3" slender build) but took the recommendation to size up for a looser fit and bought a Medium. After wash and dry- great slouchy fit, perfect for a chic front tuck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Basic Tee I snag up a few of these every year. They are the perfect throw on tee for any occasion. They are soft, don't shrink and have a great fit. They do run slightly big and can stretch out over time so I recommend sizing down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have 5 of these shirts. They are great for layering too. I have bought 5 of these shirts to take on Vacation to the Caribbean this January. Love the fit, the quality, and the style. You can wear them alone or use as a layering piece under a blazer, jacket or duster. Just love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable T-shirt ever! I bought one of these T-shirts hoping for the best. I have the hardest time finding ones that fit me properly--not too loose, too tight, too long, etc. This one fit me perfectly and it is SO soft and lightweight. This is by far the most comfortable and well fitting T-shirt I own. I liked it so much, I went back and bought 4 more in different colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute and comfy. Runs slightly large. I bought two of these shirts online a while back in a size small. I honestly didn't even think to try on a smaller size. It felt a bit on the baggy side for me. Out of curiosity I tried on the xxs in store and thought it was perfect. There's still room to breathe but a little more fitted. I am a 34 C and find that the baggy look just makes me look like I've gained weight. Overall, I love the slightly heathered look and how soft this tee feels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No problems with holes I have three of the whisper cotton v-necks bought over the last two years, and I haven't had a single problem with holes. Not even with my most recent purchase early this summer. I recommend these to all of my friends. These are easily my favorite shirts - breathable, classic, and comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a fave! I have the heather gray and I love the way it drapes. Can be dressed up or down, definitely need it in black. I have it in a medium and next time I will try the small, I would say it has a generous cut. Very cute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect everyday T! Bought this on a whim when it popped up as a recommendation on Nordstrom. Got it home and LOVED it so much I came directly to madewell and ordered every color. It's all I want to wear now. I'm 5'5" & 130 pounds and the small is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to shirt I'm in love with this shirt! The color is so on trend. It fits perfect too! It keeps shape after laundering and no fading. I wore it with a black/white large flower print skirt with a cute tan strappy heal. I've dressed it down wearing with a cute boyfriend jean and white sneakers. I highly recommend this shirt!!! I will definitely buy other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-to tee I wonder if there was a bad batch of tees. I bought 3 in June of this year. After I wore and washed the first, I went back and bought 3 more because it came out of the washer/dryer so well!!! NONE of my tees have holes (washed and dried more than 10 times least) and the fabric has held up really well, especially for a slub fabric. The best tee I've bought in years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whisper cotton v neck t shirt Cute t shirt... Ordered a small but would have preferred a medium just to make it a little more baggy. It was the look I was going for. Would order this in a different color because I was pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple I now have four of these shirts in different colors, and I wear one almost every day. I wash and dry them with all of my other clothes (cold wash, normal dry). I even sleep in them. I don't know why people have had such a problem with holes, but I have found these to be the most reliable cotton v-necks on the market. For reference, I'm 5'8'', 135 and purchased size Large for an oversized look. After writing this review I plan on purchasing two more in different colors. I'm hooked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love... ...with this tee! Perfectly soft fabric, wears and washes well, not too loose or too tight, true to size. The v-neck is just right, long enough to be sexy without showing too much. Sleeve fit and length just all the color's a staple in my wardrobe now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! This is an excellent everyday shirt. The quality is really good and I can tell it will hold up to many washings. The fit is relaxed. I have a big chest and I normally have to go up a size to accommodate, but I do not think I needed to in this shirt. I will go with a size small next time. The structure of the shirt is designed really well and the medium shirt looks great as a slightly oversized fit without looking baggy. I plan on purchasing more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fav white tee This has become my go-to favorite tee, part of my daily uniform. I got these in white and the fabric is perfectly opaque and the perfect weight: not too sheer, not too thick. Runs really large. I got xxs and they fit great- although the arms are a little tight when I first put one after the dryer. Just pull gently on the sleeve openings, works like a charm. I like that these tees aren't too long- ideal for wearing w/ jeans. I am planning to get a couple in xs, too, for when I want a longer fit. Highly recommend this tee. Me: 5'3", 32C, 115lbs, long torso.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great v-neck! I bought this shirt in both heather pewter and warm bluegrass and love it in both colors! I'm 5'9", 135 lb and usually wear a small in tops, but after reading reviews, I am glad I went with the XS, as it runs a bit large. The fabric is a nice weight and lays very nicely. Great purchase (especially with a 30% sale)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect everyday t Love this one! Perfect to throw on with jeans/shorts and can by styled up or down. Soft material which as a mama, I adore! Owned it for over a month with lots of wear/wash and haven't had the hole issues mentioned in other reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have five of these I got some last year and they were a bit thicker in weight, this year they are thinner and I learned to size down from an xs to xxs for a better fit. Still a bit loose but sits perfectly. These are my Summer staples. Love my Madewell Tees. I am 5' 112 lbs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these tees! I have quite a few of these tees. lightweight and comfy. Since they are lightweight they do tend to get holes at the seams but I like the distressed look so I don't mind. Beautiful colors too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic tee I own this shirt in a L and XL. I'm 5' 91/2". Length is good. I actually like the L a little better. The XL makes the V-neck a little deeper and so I wore a camisole underneath. Soft, lightweight, great wardrobe basic.
Date published: 2016-02-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from sporty/chic vneck I have this vneck in 7 colors so obviously I like it! I will say they run pretty big so order a size smaller than normal, especially since they don't shrink much-another plus since everything I own goes in the dryer!
Date published: 2016-02-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY found the perfect tee! I have been searching for the perfect v-neck tee for years, and this is it! Washes beautifully, has the perfect cut to look feminine yet 'boyfriend' at the same time. Can wear it under a blazer for work then out at night. I was glad I listened to other reviews on got the medium instead of my usual small (5'4", 135lbs, 32DD). I made the investment and bought 5 - best if you can get them on sale. Could do without the pocket, but otherwise THE PERFECT TEE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No cleavage revealed, yet the v is deep enough to look sexy! Great tee! I bought it in 5 colors, all of which go with my winter capsule wardrobe, and all of which are absolutely delicious. The fit is perfect with a little drape. I machine wash these on the handwash cycle and line dry them. Quasi thin fabric but not see-through. You can't go wrong. They're a super value. Fill in all the gaps in your closet here.
Date published: 2016-02-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A staple every closet needs This is a really great, basic white tee. It's slightly sheer, but works with a cami or a white/nude bra. If you want it a little baggy, like the one the model is wearing in the picture, I would say order true to size. I could have sized down and it still would have fit. This is a lightweight tee that works well for the summertime-- tucked into to shorts or jeans, or even as a swim cover-up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings I've been wearing these tees for a year and a half now. I have mixed feelings about them. On one hand, they look great, the material is soft and lightweight, and there are a lot of colors. On the other hand, I feel that the price is a little questionable for the quality. I'm very careful with these shirts, washing them on gentle cycle and laying them flat to dry. They have a loose knit and they tend to stretch, over time, the more you wear and wash them. I've also had trouble with two shirts getting holes quickly. I have had a few damaged by being bleached at the armpit because I didn't realize clear deodorant could do that. I now use any shirts that are bleached, holey, or too stretched for things like yard work. All that being said, I still like these shirts. They give an effortless cool-girl look. I'm just more hesitant to spend money on them now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Order #2! This is my second go with this shirt and I still love them! I have 2 white and 1 burgundy in medium and they have lasted several washes already. The only reason I bought a second white was because my first was ruined by a red sock that hopped in the white wash (grrrr!). Other than that, the shirts are great and I will continue to buy these in every color as money permits :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the shirt, needs better quality I love these shirts, and have so many of them, I've lost count. I like how soft they are, and living in hot weather, the thin material works for me. However, the quality needs to be improved. My shirts didn't get holes in them right away, but after months of wearing, they have started to develop little holes. Also, after having the shirts awhile, I've noticed that the bottom has stretched out, so they do not keep their shape. Very disappointing but I love the colors and the softness of the tees. Buy them when they are on sale!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from V-neck T I was a little disappointed with the thickness of this shirt. It is more like a tissue cotton. However I love the fit. I wanted a "boyfriend fit" and this is just that. I am 5'4" with a 36 bust and ordered a medium. If I wear a cami under it, is perfect.
Date published: 2017-04-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love these t-shirts, but... I wore this shirt once and by the end of the day there were several tiny holes on the front of it. I have two older Madewell t-shirts that have similar holes in them too, but not sure when they got there. I absolutely love the look of these t-shirts, I just wish they were a little more durable.
Date published: 2017-03-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortably slouchy I love the slouchiness of this V-neck! The qualm I have about it is that the V is pretty deep and when I'm actually slouching around, it tends to shift and show my bra. Super comfy, lightweight material.
Date published: 2016-11-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fav tee...not fav quality These tees are my jam...but the quality on the white is no bueno. I have these in several colors and it seems to me that the colors other than white are a thicker and more durable fabric. The white is much thinner and I have several little holes in mine. Sad day :( I do have to admit that I still wear it because it's just the perfect white tee. I will be re-purchasing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great relaxed t-shirt Super comfy material with a looser fit. I wish it was a bit longer ( as that is my style), but still longer than a normal shirt. Love wearing these with jeans or leggings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for everyday, runs large I bought this tee because of the sale price and despite its running large I decided to keep it and wear it for a baggier look on casual days. I bought a size xxs; I am 5'2", 103lbs. The tee is very soft and comfortable and seems to be well made. I definitely recommend if you don't mind the baggier fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice staple piece This is my very first Madewell review. Honestly I was pretty shocked about all of reviews with people stating they had holes in their T-shirts. I probably have at least six or seven V-neck tees and have washed them many many times over the Spring and summer and hung and laid them to dry and have no holes in any of mine. I have accidentally dried 2 with no Ill effects. The one issue that keeps me from giving this item 5 stars is that it stretches considerably in the neck when you hang it dry. It is also a little thin as other reviewers stated .But, that doesn't bother me it's not really what I would consider" see-through " . I don't wear a Cami under it but I do wear a nude bra. These have pretty much a staple piece for me until the necks got stretched. I have size smalls and they are a bit big. I'm 5"4' and about 120lbs. I'm thinking about going for an XS next time to see if it helps with the neck stretch issue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Like another reviewer stated, this shirt is comfy and the colors great. All the ones I got developed holes immediately upon wearing or shortly thereafter. I spent money for the tailor to sew them but to no avail. They continued to tear. I do not have moths.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disposable fashion As long as you don't need it to last...This is a great t-shirt with a great fit that comes in great colours. Unfortunately, all that great does not include great quality. Holes, seams, runs, and brittle fabric are common, ahem, threads in all colours. As soon as they become my favourites, these tees seem to hit the end of their cycles. Sad news. That said, at least they're inexpensive and they fit great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great item, but... Love the color selections and these are daily staple. However, the quality of the item was disappointing. Rips very easily, especially near pocket area.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stylish, poor quality I love the basic style and colors of this shirt, the only problem as others have stated I get numerous holes out of nowhere from only a few wears. I hope Madewell will take this feedback and create a better version of this shirt.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Holes I love the fit of these shirts but I've had holes in all 3 that I've purchased. One I've only worn 4 times. The price is right but beware the quality is not the best.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Perfect style and drape--very low quality I absolutely love the cut and drape of these shirts. I bought several last summer and they instantly became my favorite tees ever. However, sadly after just a couple of wears they all got small holes in them. Until the fabric is updated to a higher quality, I sadly won't be able to purchase any more of them. Eagerly waiting for a fix!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Many Holes I have about 12 Madewell t-shirts and whisper long-sleeve shirts. I love the fit and comfort of these items, but I've gotten used to walking away with countless holes in my shirts. I once had a shirt that I bought in store with no holes and one had developed before I even wore it for the first time. It's really quite unacceptable. Want to be a long-term buyer, but it's hard to justify at this point.
Date published: 2017-03-26
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comfy, but too delicate. Madewell used to have the slub tee, which I loved! This is the new version, which fits great and I love the style. The only problem is that I've gone through so many of these tees! Last summer I bought the tee eight times because after the first or second wash, the tees would tear in the underarm and belly areas. For this price, the shirt should last at least 6 months.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Holes! These are so perfect except for holes after the second wash! So sad because they fit perfectly. I bought a few and all of them have huge and tiny holes all over. So sad. Now I have to keep searching for the perfect shirt.

This is the 3rd shirt from Madewell I've had that has done this. Was able to wear it twice before the shirt went in the trash:(( Thankfully purchased on sale. I loved the shirt, super comfy, great color, just not made well... For reference I'm 5'9 160lbs, curvy. Bought large.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great style, doesn't last. I love the way these shirts feel and fit! That being said the get holes ridiculously easy. One I purchased had a hole after one wear! One! This was even before washing. If these were more durable they would be perfect, but at this rate it is much to much to pay for a single use item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great for a month If you need a comfortable, perfect, slouchy tee for just a couple of weeks, then this is it. If, however, you're hoping for a shirt that will last for an entire season, much less beyond, this is not it. People are not kidding about the holes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Fabric Quality After two washes and hang dries, this t shirt developed tiny holes. The fabric is very comfortable but not durable. I anticipate it's lifespan being short.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from comfortable shirt made of very flimsy fabric I liked the way this shirt looked and fit, but after just a few hours of wearing it, multiple small tears and hole appeared. I had not done anything out of the ordinary that would have resulted in my shirt ripping. I was very disappointed in the fabric quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Neckline too low-cut Loved the drapey material and beautiful color. Really wanted to keep it, but unfortunately, the neckline was WAY too low-cut -- showed my entire bra. I'm 5'2", so maybe this would fit someone taller. I'm sure it would work fine with a cami underneath, but that would defeat the whole purpose. Midwest summers are very hot and humid. I was looking for a lightweight tee I could wear as a single layer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stylish but lacking in quality Super comfortable and I like the way it fits but already has a hole in it after one wash. And the hole is by my shoulder blades so not in a place that would have been caused by me. Disappointed. Wouldn't buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I LOVE this cut and style of this shirt but I've been really disappointed in the quality. I washed it EXACTLY according to the instructions and after ONE wash, there were TWO holes in the fabric! Not near a seam but right in the middle of the fabric. It's just frustrating because these are the only thing I've purchased from Madewell and I was hoping the quality of the clothing would be in line with the name of the company. Really bummed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Almost Immediate Holes! My favorite fitting t-shirt so I bought a blush-colored one at the beginning of spring. It got holes at the bottom front after just a few wears. I did the half-tuck thing into my Madewell jeans and they appeared almost immediately. I hope Madewell will look at these reviews and make a change! Keep the fit, but improve the fabric! I love all of my Madewell jeans and dresses, but these tees give Madewell a very bad image.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Holes after two washes I bought two of these tees and they fit perfectly. However, one of them had tiny holea after one wash...and I carefully followed the care instructions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Holes Galore Love, love, love this tee shirt. But the quality just isn't there. I have more than six of these and every single one gets holes after or during the first wear. I bought several last year and hoped the problem was resolved. Nope. Same problem. The style is great...I just wished I could actually wear the product I bought.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I've worn these shirts loyally and have most of the colors. The last one got little holes on it the first day in wore it. I hadn't even washed it yet. I noticed it was thinner than the ones I got as late as last year, so maybe they're making them thinner this year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Holes after 1 wear & wash I bought this tshirt 4 days ago, wore once and washed it and there are already holes in it. Very disappointing. This shirt is so light which is great, but getting holes after a single use shows really poor quality in fabric. Very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please bring back a better cotton I have been wearing this style T shirt from Madewell for years...before they were made of slub cotton. I love the style and fit, but they are really poor quality. Like other reviewers, I have experienced tiny holes over a short period of time that make the shirts unwearable. How about going back to a thicker pima cotton like you used to use? You have a winning style and I'm sure your customers would pay more for a T that would last more than a couple wears.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not well made I tried these shirts on in the store and loved the relaxed fit---- not body hugging but still fitted. After washing and air drying they look awful on. The neck lost shape. The length shrunk. I am so disappointmented!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother! DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!! At first glance, they are the perfect t-shirt! Lightweight, very comfortable, true to size.. I bought 3 in different colors and regret wasting my money after a few washes! I always washed them on delicate cycle and hung them out to dry, I took very good care of them. But all my shirts still got holes in them. Not made very well! You can find better quality shirts for the same price, if not cheaper elsewhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love/hate relationship I've bought these tees for years and thought I was the only one experiencing this! I even researched why this could be happening. Like others, I love these tees, but hate them after one or two wears. Madewell, please, please fix this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why pay for holes after three washes? I was super excited to buy this shirt after seeing some of my favorite bloggers wear them. I purchased in two colors and assumed at the price point these would be THE tshirt staples I could count on. I was SO disappointed after three washes they developed holes! The irony is not lost on me, Madewell.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't Recommend Purchasing Until Fabric Changes This fabric gets holes in it like nothing I've ever seen. To preface this, I want to say that I do all that I can to ensure the longevity of my clothes. I only washed these shirts when they were dirty (i.e. after 2-3 wears, not after each wear), and I always wash them inside out, in a delicates bag, in cold water, with Woolite for darks detergent, using the gentle cycle, and I always lay them flat to dry. And yet they still got holes in them. The fabric is incredibly soft and comfortable but just not durable enough to withstand even the most careful laundering. I love these shirts and they are incredibly comfortable and cute. They have the potential to be one of the best t-shirts on the market, but the quality needs to improve before I can justify repurchasing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I was so happy when I bought these tees. They are super comfortable, loose fitting but not shapeless. I have several Madewell tanks and tees purchased over the last few years that are still in great condition, but these tees are coming up short. I take great care of my clothing and, like most people, I expect it to last for more than one wash cycle. Unfortunately these tees do not meet that standard.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from low quality I've had this shirt for less than 3 months and already has 2 holes in it. the first hole was there after the first month. so disappointed with the quality since it is from madewell. the tees are super comfy and it's one of my favorite. but the material is super thin and not madewell causing it to have holes in it. even cheaper tees last longer. please have quality check for these. not even worth the money...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor material quality I really love madewell clothes, but have to say I'm so disappointed in the quality of this tee. I have bought 2 of these tees and after one wash BOTH have holes in them. Unfortunately the holes are right in the front of the tee, which makes them no longer wearable. What a bummer. I expected better from this company, especially for the price of a basic tee.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HOLES I originally loved this shirt and bought several colors, but each one now has multiple holes, after very few times wearing/washing. Madewell, please use better quality fabric for these shirts!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stylish and comfy but poorly made I purchased this tee a couple months ago as a staple piece for my capsule wardrobe. I usually love Madewell and love the quality of their garments, so I was super disappointed to find that this tee, though washed gently with a natural detergent and air dried, quickly lost its shape and already has holes on each of the 4 corners of the chest pocket. Wouldn't purchase this tee again, sadly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SO disappointed... I bought three of these shirts, and loved them so much that I took great care not to stretch or damage them. I washed them on the gentle cycle by themselves and laid them flat to dry. After only 2 washings, two of the shirts have noticeable holes in them. I can't believe that they are unwearable already... especially considering the price point. This is a great style and these come in great colours so I was enthusiastic when I purchased, but the quality is extremely disappointing. Save your money and buy elsewhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low quality. I have a few whisper cotton v-necks. The colors are great and they are comfy, but If you're looking for a shirt that will last for more than a few months...This is not the shirt for you. After a month this shirt gets little holes here and there. The t-shirt is too thin and not of very good quality. It's too bad because I love the colors. Maybe one day Madewell will make a better quality basic tee that lasts longer than a few months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from After three wearings, it has small holes in the front! Very comfortable and I love how it feels but after three times wearing (and wash with air drying), it has small holes in the front of the shirt already! Can't wear it anymore!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality/craftsmanship I ordered four of these shirts just over a month ago and as of now two of them have a small hole in the exact same spot at the corner of the pocket. I do love the feel and look of the shirt, unfortunately the quality is very poor. I would be hesitant to order these again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love them but NOT "made well". Love tees - they are a staple in my closet so I buy several a year & am always on the hunt for nice one. These looked great & had so many color choices, so I wound upwith 1/2 dozen purchased over the last few months. All but one is now holey even though they were carefully washed on the delicate cycle of my washer. The holes are almost always in the front above the hem. As these won't even hold up to a few delicate washes, regrettably, I would not recommend them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap, falling apart on first wash I bought this and thought it was cute and fit great, but washed it before I wore it and it already has a hole in at the shoulder seam. Super poorly made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from great shirt! poor quality. :( First I just want to say I love this t-shirt. The fit and the softness are awesome. I have it in 6 colors, and multiple in the basics- black and white. However, after 3-4 washed in the washing machine, slowly but surely ALL of them started to get holes along the stitching- on the rear of the collar, armpit, corner of front pocket. I was appalled by the poor quality of this shirt. I had thought about returning them but just never found the time and just wore each one until they were worn out. Totally NOT satisfactory. If you're paying more than $15 for a COTTON T-SHIRT, I expect it to last MORE THAN 3 washes!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Holes after washing four times I bought two of the slub v-neck pocket tees. After washing four times, one of the shirts developed several holes. I was disappointed because this t-shirt was very comfortable and looked great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BEWARE - got small hole after two wearings/washings This would be a great shirt if it didn't get tiny holes in the front of it so darn fast! I'm so sick of the thin T shirts that everyone makes now that get holes so ridiculously quickly. I hoped, after reading the reviews, that this shirt would be different, but it's not. I got it in red and it's a pretty color with a good, loose (but not too loose) fit. But the holes are a deal breaker, ladies! I can handle it if it happens after six months or so, but after wearing and washing it twice! I'll have to keep looking for quality, good looking T's.
