Pure Cotton Straight Fit T-Shirt is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 464.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Huge and not for pear shapes. This T shirt is huge. I went down a size, still too big, down another size, still too big across my shoulders but too tight across my hips! Like Poppy1971 said, definitely not for pear shapes. Following the advice from your T shirt team, I then tried the regular fit, which was not as good quality, and found they also were not designed for pear shapes. Not to give up, I then tried the fitted T shirts only to find that they also were designed for women with broad shoulders and narrow hips and showed up every lump and bump that I never realised I had! I still have the similar T shirts from last year, which were a great fit and quality, so will just have to wear them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these t-shirts Lovely quality, soft fabric - light and cool Good upper arm coverage I have bought about 9 colours because I don't know when I will find a t-shirt this good again. I wear the white ones for work because they are light and fit under a light top or jacket. I originally bought one of the t-shirts in navy on holiday last autumn and noticed it had quietly become a wardrobe staple and it had retained its quality and shape over the months. When summer came round I stocked up! They are wonderful value when compared to some of the low-cost t-shirts on the high street and much better quality and finish. Thank you

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Watch the size! I loved the colour and was delighted to get this on a 3 for 2 offer but my normal size was far too big and when I tried to exchange it, there were no light mint t shirts left in any of our local stores. I therefore changed it for another colour, with which I'm very happy. But today, looking for something else in the Marble Arch store, I found a full rail of light mint t shirts, so have been able to purchase one in a smaller size after all. I deliberately went for the straight, rather than the relaxed, style but evidently you need to downsize on the straight t shirts too, unless you want a very baggy look.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lovely choice of colours, but... I so wanted to like this T-shirt, because it came in such a good choice of colours, but it is huge, boxy/shapeless and the material is just too thick. Where have the decent T-shirts M&S have produced over previous years all gone? They are either longline, which is no use when you are short waisted like me, or they have horrid slogans or texture on them. Personally I think slogan T-shirts went out on the 1980's, and really don't work on ladies that are old enough to remember them back then, but obviously some people must like them. Please can you do a fitted range, that is not skin tight, not too long and comes in the lovely range of colours that this one does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price First, as others have said, it is isn't "very high quality" but it's good quality for the price - at the end of the day it's £4.50 - mine wasn't actually £3.60 as I had a 20% voucher off it. I wouldn't say it was thin at all as some have commented. For me personally I love the width, shape and length of it - it's more loose and box-like than the fitted ones which cling to your stomach and show the zip in your jeans/trousers sticking out and aren't very flattering - it hugs your hips but with a space around. I'm 5'4" and it comes to around my bikini line. Re size - yes - it's big. I'm a standard 12 and the 10 fits a treat. My advice....go a size smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent white tee This is a great white tshirt in a modern boxy cut. The cotton is soft and finely woven. Similar to the cut of the white tshirts in the Limited Collection last season, but not cropped. It was a joy to shop in store for this tshirt because all the styles have been cleverly printed on the inside collar with their shape - The Straight, The Fitted, The Relaxed etc (this one is The Straight). It would be great if that could be added to the online title/description as well. Thanks M&S.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from straight fit tee I have some very old M&S tee shirts that have washed and worn well over the years and the fit of this new 'straight fit' is the same and perfect for my body shape. I love the fact that M&S now offer a choice of fit. I have been disappointed recently that all of their tees were very clingy, too long and too tight-fit, no matter how many sizes I tried, none of them were right for my body shape. I bought a 10 based on previous reviewers' comments about the fit and knew this would be perfect for me. I am not disappointed. I would normally have a 12. Not washed yet so fingers crossed. Not as thick as my ten-year-old tees so probably won't last as long, but for £4...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unflattering I bought several of the straight fit tee shirts last minute for a holiday having previously bought fitted ones which I am having to return. They are value for money and good quality but they are very unflattering as they are very big, particularly from the bust downwards and long too. I am a size 12 and although the tee shirts fit well across the bust there is a lot of tee shirt to tuck in, particularly if you want to wear shorts or chinos. As a result, there's a lot of bulky material resting on the waist and well below the hips which gives a very unflattering look. I appreciate that they are advertised as "straight fit" but I wish the design could be tapered and overall length reduced. I would not buy this design again.
