White tees and shirts that aren't see through

One of my pet peeves is the difficulty of finding tops - tees especially - that aren't flimsy and see through. It's particularly hard to find white ones.

 

I found this long-sleeve tee at Penneys and it's a winner. Soft silky material and not see-through (with a beige bra).

This tee is on sale for $12 ($22 regular price). I bought it in petite to get the right sleeve length. It's long, even in petite. Love the neckline.

It comes in other colors as well as stripes.

L L Bean also sells some tees that aren't see-through even in white. This is a favorite of mine. I find that their tees run a big on the big side.

You are so right.  It's next to impossible to find reasonably opaque white tees.  I will be checking these out.

I agree - I also find it hard to find non-flimsy white tees. Thank you for the heads up on where to find some!

I agree with L L Bean. I also have a Liz Claiborne NY white cotton tee that's a nice weight cotton and not see through either, I can any but my darkest bras with it

Hi!

 

I'm curious - did you buy the Liz one at QVC, or at Penneys?

Re: White tees and shirts that aren't see through

I only wear 100% cotton tee's.  I get mine at Christopher Banks.  I machine wash and hang to dry.  I find that they last a very long time for me.  I am wearing some that I purchased 6-7 years ago and they look like new.

 

I buy a boat load of them when they go on sale.  I have their short. 3/4, elbow length and long sleeve shirts.

I find great T's at JJill - love the length and they are not see thru at all.  I really like the ballet neck and 3/4 sleeves too! They do have sleeveless, short and long sleeved.  Also make wonderful long sleeved white crisp shirts as does Banana R!

I do most of my shopping at Belk's.  They have a house brand of tees that are just fine - no see thru and easy care.  Also very inexpensive - often buy one, get one half off, or free.  Lots of other bands, but the house brand is a sure thing.
