Two things most humans have in common; 1. We want to feel good and 2. Most of us wear clothing. What if what you were wearing is what made you feel good?
Everyone has a different body shape, a different style they like, a different material they like to feel against their skin and a different way they want a T-shirt to fit.
Generally speaking and according to statistics, men wear T-Shirts more often than females. Females absolutely wear T-Shirts, however, we also wear a plethora of other clothing ‘top’ options such as dresses, rompers, sweaters and tank tops, more so than men. Ask any female and you will find that 80% of them say that finding the right fit for a T-Shirt can be difficult to say the least.
I like to categorize the fit of T-Shirts in three ways; Classic Fit, Modern Fit and Slim Fit. The Classic Fit is very much in style right now, growing as the most popular fit as of the Spring of 2018. As we all know, fads come and go. The boxy, classic fit may stick around for a few more months or even until the end of the year, but the fad will fade.
Allmade wanted to create a ladies T-Shirt that was timeless and would outlast fads, that would incorporate a desirable fit and that had a soft and smooth feel that many females have asked for.
How do we know what females want in a T-Shirt? We asked. We sent out several surveys, asked our customers, asked family and friends. We then worked with our designer, Melissa Coles, to use all of this feedback to create the perfect fit. We homed in on a cut that we classify as the ‘Modern Fit’, which allows females to incorporate many styles in one tee. Whether this be the plain tee look, athletic and fit, comfy, casual, edgy, laid back or dressy for a night on the town, we feel confident that you will find Allmade Ladies tees to be the perfect fit.
We have a longer length, bringing the bottom hem below the waist line and avoiding a belly peepshow at the mere lift of an arm
We have tapered the tee in many areas including the sleeves to create a fashion forward look, but avoiding the slim fit snug hug and underarm pinch
We have a slightly flared bottom, to accentuate the waistline and hips in the right ways and create a slim silhouette
Our V-Neck differs from the standard, as we’ve created the first Scoop-V. This goes wider than the traditional V, creating an accentuated neckline. The depth of the V was scaled back, to create a modest cut and comfortable fit
“For years we've struggled to find an option for ladies shirts that fit well. For whatever reason, most of the shirts that are available out there in ladies cuts either run very small, have strange necklines or are too short. The great thing about the Allmade ladies cuts is that it really has a fit similar to a unisex t-shirt, but tapered in the right areas. The sleeves are fitted nicely, but don't cut into the underarm of the person wearing them. The length of the shirt hits below the waist so they can be worn comfortably and without worry of riding up as you move throughout the day. The fit is true-to-size and both the v-neck and crew neck have a flattering cut to them. Since switching our ladies collection over to Allmade we've seen a rise in sales for ladies styles. More women can wear them and no one has to go up one to two sizes to get one that works for them”

The Allmade women’s cut tees are great! The cut and fit of the women’s v neck is my favorite. It accents my waist and shape without being too tight in the arms or hips AND it is made by a world class designer that specializes in women’s clothing. I wear them around town plain or with a denim jacket, and I wear them to work my ER shifts instead of wearing a scrub top.
