We are certainly getting our money’s worth out of our summer wardrobe’s this year! We are loving this perfect summer t-shirt weather, but we realise not all t-shirts are made equally, so wanted to share just 5 of the reasons an ethically made YUNION T t-shirt is worth the investment this summer, plus why you’ll still be wearing it at Christmas…
Wear with pride – we’ve lost count of the stories we’ve heard from women who haven’t felt comfortable removing a cardi or jacket in the heat of summer as they’ve felt too ‘exposed’ in just a t-shirt. Not any more! The bespoke cut of our t-shirts has been designed by founder, Mel to irradicate all those ‘self-conscious’ niggles – longer sleeves for the arm conscious, flattering fit around the middle for the dreaded ‘mum tum’ and our signature 100% non see-through fabric so no bra flashing! It may be a small thing, but we couldn’t be prouder when women say they feel comfortable and confident in our tees.
Wardrobe staple – obviously our t-shirts come into their own in the summer months as a wardrobe essential in their own right but we find sales are pretty much constant all-year round. Come autumn they are great for layering under strappy dresses to extend their lifespan and are a great extra layer under knits and cardis come winter. We’ve had customers wear them to their Christmas parties with a statement skirt and heels – a true all-rounder!
Just breathe… our tees are made with the finest grade cotton, making them the perfect natural, breathable option for summer. We just add a splash of Lycra to our blend for comfort and fit.
Get in shape – when the mercury is high, we love the idea of a linen t-shirt as much as the next overheated woman, but we know from experience that they don’t last. After a few washes they lose their shape and become sack-like, plus linen is the worst culprit for being see-through. We are loving Zara’s button-through linen dresses though!
Fashion maths – our women’s t-shirts have been rigorously tested for durability – both in the wash and for shape retention and wear. They are truly built to last (some of our customers report their t-shirts are ‘like new’ after 2 years!). We are proud of our ethical, made in the UK status and part of our commitment to being a ‘slow fashion’ brand is that we are not contributing to ‘throwaway fashion’ destined for land-fill after a few short months. The old adage, ‘buy cheap, buy twice’ couldn’t be more apt – yes, at £45 they may be twice the price of a high-street tee but we guarantee you’ll wear it twice as often and it will last twice as long!
