Champion Cotton Jersey V-Neck Women's Plus-Size T Shirt
Runs Snug but can't find alternative
This top and it's many colors is part of my "gym uniform". I agree with the previous reviews. With each order, the shirt seems to shrink in size, the fabric is woven thinner in fabric and the sewing quality shows less skill. If you want loose, size up by at least 2 sizes--and don't feel horrible about ordering a 3x when you actually can wear a 1X from previous purchases.
Unfortunately, the Champion Line both purchased on this website and at traditional retail has really slipped. I just wish I could find an alternative OR in the best case Champion plus size quality picks up!!!

Bring back the old tees
I agree with the other reviewers. I have a closet of these tees and from year to year, every aspect of them changed--most often for the worse. These were great tees. I like the material but that is where it stops. The necks are too low now, the sleeves are non existent other than a small cap at the top. The sides fit too loosely and flare out as opposed to hanging straight down because there is no hem or weight to the fabric.. When will fashion designers learn that plus women dont want their clothes skimpy and tight like the young plus sizes. Fashion is too skimpy, tight and slinky these days.

Recently, quality and fit has deteriorated
This used to be my favorite, go-to top. But, I do agree with the other reviewers. I have been very unhappy to see the quality and fit deteriorate recently. The fabric used to be of fine quality...sturdy, with a nice hand. The sleeve length used to be perfect...offering coverage on my upper arms--an area I am most self-conscience of. Now, the fabric is cheap and thin, does not wash well and the all-over fit is skimpy. The arms length is shorter. PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD QUALITY AND FIT! I would buy one of each!

I agree with the other reviewers on this T-shirt. I have also been purchasing this shirt for at least 7 years. Each time I order, it's different., and not in a good way. Originally, this shirt had a nice, heavyweight cotton that was perfect. It had a loose, but not overly loose, fit it hit at the bottom on the hip and was very, very comfortable. It covered my hips and was easy to wear. The last shirts I purchased are very thin, too snug and short for my taste. No coverage on the upper arm, either, which is very important to me as it's not my best feature.
I like to wear this shirt for working out, sleeping, lounging around and running errands. My older version shirts are being worn and washed to shreds and I won't even put the newer shirts on because they're not comfortable.
Please, please please go back to the original fit, fabric and style of this shirt. JMS sends out surveys to ask why customers visit the site and don't purchase...this is why!
