I love it. I go to the thrift store almost every day, so I can buy a whole bunch of Mens T-shirts for less! thanks!

I don't know what's wrong with me, but I can't get my hubby's large t-shirt collars to stretch large enough for it to go over my shoulders or around my hips to be in place.

Am I missing a trick here??? I would LOVE to try this, but don't want to buy any XXXL shirts to do so.

Okay, I tried it and was pleasantly surprised at how easily the neck stretched out for me! But, I liked mine tied in the back way better, because the tee had a great graphic print on it. :D Just...if you tie yours in back, find someone to help make sure it's tight enough! <3

I don't see this working without cutting the neckline off, or even being able to tie the sleeves...but I'll try it, LOL.

If I want this to work I have to cut the neck off. Otherwise this does not work for bigger bust lines. :P I love it tho!
