First U2 shirt!! @ 11:31 pm

starlightm42:


My first U2 t-shirt EVAR!!

In case anyone was wondering about the shirts on the site...I was, because you can't see the actual shirts when you go to the fanfire site to buy them; you just get some graphics. And I'm reeally picky about how things fit and feel, and materials/textures and stuff. But I'm happy to report that I really like it a lot -- it's perfect! Here are the specs:

The sizes DEFINITELY run small -- I am 5'2", 114lbs, and...because it's relevant, here, 34-B, lol. (Sorry to any guys here who didn't want that info lol). I am usually a size small in babydoll t-shirts, but I went with a medium to be on the safe side and it is just right.

The material is very nice -- not too thin, not too thick, and the knit is fine, which is what I like. Makes it softer. :)

It's LONG, which I also love. Too many babydoll T's are always WAY too short (and usually shrink to become even shorter) and what happens is, they ride up and show your midrift, especially when you bend over. Now, while I'm young and that doesn't bother me per se, it can make it difficult to wear those shirts to work or anywhere else where there might be a dresscode, or where I simply feel it would be inappropriate to show midrift. But also, it is just uncomfortable for me when shirts ride up like that. It makes me paranoid that someone will see my underpants sticking out, as I often wear pants that ride low on my hips (more comfortable that way because I have a short torso)...or worse, my white Irish buttcrack! (:-O

Whatever paint they use for the heart is kinda shimmery/sparkly...it's cool! :)

So yeah...thumbs up on this t-shirt! Yay for merch. ;)

$25. And...no, I don't know how high or low the sizes go. You'd have to check the site...it prolly also depends on what shirt you want and they have in stock, too.

I'm going to have to agree on all counts that the T-shirt is very nice (I'm quite fond of that heart painting) and that you're effin' adorable.

You look totally sexy in it. If you don't mind me saying *laughs*

But yeah I agree with you, when I bought babydoll shirts at concerts they were always too small, particularly in the chest area. Now its cool if you're wearing hipster jeans and going for that effect or if its summer but sometimes you just want a normal shirt that will cover your stomach and not make your boobs look like they've suddenly grown a thousand times bigger overnight (hints to the matchbox 20 shirts).

Also like the fact that its long; covers my thick tree stumpy thighs. Might just get one of those shirts. Thanks for sharing the good info, looks like you're really enjoying it. :)

BEST. PURCHASE. EVAR. My mate Ryan spotted it as we were walking by a store in Chicago. I TOTALLY owe him a wookie life debt.

So cute!

Um... I mean the shirt.  Yeah...

Seriously, thank you for the information.  I was thinking about buying a shirt, but I wasn't sure about the size, length and overall quality.  Now I have answers to all my questions and the added knowledge that the design is sparkly.  Definitely going to get one now. =D

Thank you so much for posting this! I've been wondering about the shirts on the site for a long time, and I'm practically the same size as you so this helps me a lot! I have a question though....on the pictures on the site, the bottom of the babydoll t-shirts aren't straight across, they're kind of rounded...are they like that in real life? I hope that made sense. I'd rather have the bottom seam be straight across like a regular t-shirt.
