Customer Reviews

It’s a nice modest shirt, sort of loose, not fitted
3
from Melina on Fri, Oct. 13, 2017

I wanted to use this shirt for an easy jeans and tee shirt look but the shirt is a little too loose and not too fitted. Let me put it this way, this is a version of a woman’s style size shirt rather than a juniors style size shirt. It’s something you find in the woman’s department at the mall rather than in the juniors department. So it’s loose fitting and very modest. I hope this helps someone who is trying to decide to buy this shirt. But other than that, I would recommend it if that is what you want to wear and use.

The Perfect Fit (Literally)
5
from Jenna on Mon, Apr. 23, 2018

I ordered a bunch of these shirts for my beauty pageant contestants and was worried about the fit since all my ladies were literally different shapes and sizes, not to mention varying bust lines. Soon as I took the shirts out of the box I knew I made the right choice. Every single contestant raved about how beautiful they were, how well the logo took to the fabric and how soft/comfortable the material was. I had to steal one for myself to wear! Seeing them all wearing their shirts during the competition weekend really made a difference in giving our group a polished look and every single woman felt completely confident knowing she had a shirt that she felt good wearing and would gladly wear long after the pageant was over. Highly recommend!

Best selling women's shirt
5
from Tricia on Mon, Nov. 26, 2012

Best selling women's shirt. They fit well, all our ladies order a size up from their regular shirt size because they are fitted. They come in lots of colors. They have held up very well and people come back for more of these than any other.

Attractive shirts at very reasonable price
5
from Gwenee on Sat, Dec. 23, 2017

I will be buying more of these attractive shirts. Great variety of beautiful colors. Amazing price. Even better than I already expected. Very well made. Soft to the touch but sturdy. They fit/look really nice. Doesn't have a boxed look, compliments your figure. Thank you for advising to get a size up for a little room. Not tight, but just right. (I checked run small only for reason of asking for a little room). Very comfortable and cool for warm weather. Looking forward to wearing. The colors are true; the exact shades as shown. I LOVE these shirts. Very, very happy with my order. Haven't washed yet, will give update. Please don't change the price and please don't stop making them. A real blessing for people on tight budget. Looking forward to buying again. Thank you Jiffy/Belle<3!

The fabric is so thick and soft, I love all the Bella 1 x 1 baby rib T-shirts
4
from Hope on Wed, Nov. 28, 2012

The fabric is so thick and soft, I love all the Bella 1 x 1 baby rib T-shirts. Also the fit is flattering once you figure out your size. Be prepared to order 1 or 2 sizes up. I am a size 10/medium in most clothes but ended up getting a size XL. I also like the banded sleeves on this shirt. Other 1 x 1 rib shirts that don't have the banding on the sleeves (such as the scoop neck tee by bella) don't hold their shape as well and the sleeves end up looking a bit sloppy.

These run a little small, especially at the sleeves
4
from Shannyn on Sun, Nov. 23, 2008

These run a little small, especially at the sleeves. The ribbing helps keep it a little more comfortable across the chest though. But I would recommend ordering a size larger than normal to be safe, especially if you are busty. The quality is good, and the color seems to hold up well. These are really nice as long as you can the right size for you.

This was my 2nd order
5
from Hilda d on Sun, Aug. 17, 2014

This was my 2nd order. I think I now have over 12 of the tee shirts and one of your zippered hoodies. Love them all. They wash well, and are so comfortable to wear. I wear them with jeans and skirts. I did order one size up, as the other reviews stated they run a little small. The fit is great. Will continue to order.

Absolutely a fantastic shirt
4
from Colleen on Sun, Jan. 12, 2014

Absolutely a fantastic shirt. This is by far the most requested shirt for my business. There is very little if any shrinkage. The color stays beautiful. It is flattering on all sizes, but it does run at least a size small as Bella shirts always do. I do wish then that they had sizing above an XXL.

These shirts were used for a youth camp
5
from Larissa m on Mon, Nov. 16, 2009

These shirts were used for a youth camp. They were given to girls and boys ranging in age from 3 to 12. At the end of the camp the shirts were turned. They were dirty, but not torn or ruined. They stood up to three days of heavy activity without one ruined shirt. Very impressive.

5
from Kimberly on Wed, Nov. 21, 2012

I have bought a bazillion of these! This is by far my TOP SELLER in my rhinestone business. If you get your client to size up one size, you will have no problems with fit! So many colors and they are such a good price. They work great under the hot press!!

This is a nice tee shirt but what they are calling "soft pink " color is NOT a soft pink.
It is a not a pastel tone. It is a brighter medium range pink.
The color is darker and brighter than it appears in the photo.

Bella's rock!!

from Christine on Mon, Dec. 19, 2016

The colors worked great for my project - PTA rhinestone shirts. The sizing is pretty accurate, the fabric is soft, breathable and washes better than any other shirt. This shirt is great and I will continue to keep it in my inventory.

Great shirt for the price!
5
from Caryn on Mon, Nov. 13, 2017

I needed some basic t's for layering and these fit the bill. They're a midweight cotton--not cheap feeling!--and they're pretty true to size (I'm a size 4-6 and got the M which fits great). I will buy more of these for sure.

They're Ok
3
from Myra on Tue, Sep. 5, 2017

Personally I didn't really care for the shirt. Definitely not what I was expecting with all the hype behind this brand. I got varying sizes to get a feel for the fit, the largest size I got was tighter than the middle size.

These are very good shirts and they are fitted
4
from Armin on Tue, Nov. 25, 2008

These are very good shirts and they are fitted. Since it is 100% cotton they do shrink. With special care that can be avoided. We use them for screen printing and customers liked them. They are not too thin.

The shirt is form fitting
5
from Sylvia on Wed, Dec. 11, 2013

The shirt is form fitting. So I tell my customers they should consider one size larger. If they do not like form fitting at all, two sizes larger. They take rhinestones applied by heat press very well.

Bella Stretch

from Donnetta on Thu, Jan. 5, 2017

Love these bella shirts. They are great for heat pressing. Depending on how you like your shirts to fit, you may want to size up as these are form fitting. Very soft. Will always order these shirts.

from Damon on Thu, Nov. 20, 2008

After many ruined shirts, I have given up on this brand. The shirts shrink and they usually run small. I just don't think it's worth the money. I would recommend Alternative brand before Bella.

The perfect t-shirt

from Sarah on Sun, May 18, 2014

The perfect t-shirt. Fitted at the waist, nice rolled collar & sleeve, heavy enough that you don't see through the lighter colors. Washes well, did not shrink at all, colors have not faded.
