Soft and Slinky, but also Shrink-y (Size Large)

This shirt was a pretty awesome free gift! Even though it shrunk, I still wear it around the house with lounge pants. It has stayed comfortable and soft. Read my full review for detailed post-washing measurements!

extremely useful review
I received this tee as a free gift with purchase, along with my very first order from EdenFantasys. It was definitely worth more than what I paid! Its style leans a little toward the feminine, but is still unisex enough for anyone to wear. The screen printed design on front is bold and bright, and is nicely set off by the solid black background. Were it not for the presence of the brand name, the phrase across the chest of the shirt might be taken to mean that the wearer is a fan of motorcycles.

Sizing & Fit
Unfortunately, there is no size chart posted on the product page to help buyers determine which size would best fit them (not that size charts are always very helpful, anyhow). I read several reviews before choosing a size in this shirt, and finally selected the Large. I'm normally either a Small or a Medium in women's tops, but I thought this tee would make an excellent loungewear and pajama top, and possibly even be long enough to wear as a short nightie, so I wanted a looser, more relaxed fit.

I'm a 5'5"-tall woman who weighs about 140 pounds, wears a size 34C bra, and has measurements of approximately 37-28-40. When I received it, this shirt in size Large had a lovely, flowing fit, and just covered my behind. This was just what I'd had in mind. Unfortunately, after washing, it shrunk considerably in length, and it now falls to just below my hip-bones, at about the tops of my hip joints. The sleeves didn't seem to shrink the same way, so they look a little too long for the length of the shirt now. The width of the shirt didn't shrink much, either, and still has a drapey, loose fit.

The shirt, unstretched, now measures as follows (all circumference measurements are taken flat, then doubled):

Bust (underarm to underarm): 42"
Waist (smallest part, center): 38"
Hip (hem from seam to seam): 44"
Length (center front): 21"
Length (center back): 24"
Sleeve (neck to cuff): 13"
Sleeve (shoulder seam to cuff): 7"
Sleeve Opening: 14"
Neck Opening: 18"

Materials & Performance
This tee has no fabric content & care tag sewn in. Its only tag is a tiny white square at the back of the neck, printed with a letter indicating the size of the shirt. The product page lists the content as 100% cotton, but I am skeptical of this; the fabric feels too slinky--almost silky--to be all cotton, and feels more like a rayon or poly blend. I can't verify this with certainty, given that there's no content/care tag, but I've worked in clothing retail and can nearly always correctly guess the fabric content on an article of clothing. Personally, I like the less-cottony feel of the shirt, but those who only wear natural fibers should take note.

As for the performance, this shirt has held up well overall to about a year of washing and wearing. It does now show some light pilling of the fabric, and the side seams did twist a little after the first wash; in addition, there is the issue of shrinkage in length, as discussed above. However, the screen printing is still bright, fresh, and nearly perfect-looking, and the shirt is still soft and has a lot of wear left in it.

I didn't receive any care instructions with this tee, but I recommend machine-washing in cold water on a gentle cycle, and hanging it up to dry; this should prevent the shrinkage I've experienced. If you don't want to take the time for hang-drying, at least use your dryer's lowest heat setting, or even the "cool-down" or "air-fluff" setting if you have one.
I adore my loungewear, and require any piece in my collection to be soft, comfortable, and stretchy or flowing (or both). This shirt fits all of those criteria. It isn't the sexiest lounge top I own, but I do believe I'll be chopping the sleeves soon, and possibly even cutting a vertical slit down the front from the neckline. Perhaps I'll even get more creative and make a series of horizontal slits across the upper chest...

Some other uses to which this shirt can be put are:

- Emergency blindfold
- Emergency wrist restraint
- Emergency gag
- Sex towel (either for placing under your lover to protect your sheets, or for a quick wipe-off afterward)
- Teaser (blindfold your lover and slowly trail a corner of the soft fabric over bare skin)
- Silky frictionless barrier (place over partner's nipples, lightly flick and tease; lay over partner's vaginal area or drape around partner's cock, stroke with fingers--or, press lips against fabric and exhale warm air)
- Use your imagination!
Follow-up commentary
Well, so far I've decided to just cut the sleeves off, and keep this as a solid, high-necked, around-the-house sleeveless tee. I first tried cutting the sleeves shorter, but they looked a bit silly that way due to their larger circumference. So, off they came! The nice part is that the cut edges of the fabric are not unraveling--just neatly curling under a bit.

I've seen in some other reviews that these shirts are made in at least three different fabrics, and that explains why mine doesn't feel anything like 100% cotton. If I could order this again and be sure I'd get the same fabric, I'd be happy to own a couple more of these in different sizes!

    What an odd way for this to shrink. I am definitely sad that these aren't a free gift option anymore, because all the modifications and alternate uses you listed make me want to pick one up! Thanks for the review!

    Glad you liked it, surreptitious! If it were still a free gift option, I'd probably get one in a Small for a snug, sexy fit! Come on, EF, make them the next free gift with order (say, $39+?)--it's advertising for you, after all!
