Default Desperately seeking Women's Plus Size up to 4x and 5x fitted tees

Hi everyone, Love this site....tremendous resources. Thank you to whoever started it! Can someone please help me find a manufacturer or a cut and sew place of plus size fitted tees. I prefer to buy from a manufacture, but if I can't find them, I may have to go cut and sew. I do not want the boxy type shirts, loose fitted, only shirts that are fitted. I want to offer sizes from a small to a 4 or 5x since this is my entire customer base! Very varied! Believe it or not, I have been looking for over 1 year. I have been ordering plus size fitted tees from a place I found on fashiongo.net, but they are not "true to size." A 3x is more like a 1x is the feedback I am getting from my customers. My clothing line has really taken off(a blessing) and I do not want to sell shirts that are not true to size. I have created my own size chart by measuring and fitting over 100 women as fit models and have had samples made from those specs. I am trying to save $ first by seeing if someone out there makes the fitted shirts in plus sizes.

I am looking for shirts that are fitted, slightly longer in length but not too tight where they are unflattering. I have read some postings on here that say, plus size and fitted do not exist but that is not true. Many of the big name plus size clothing lines carry them. I can't afford to buy the blanks from the big name places as it is too much to buy their blanks.

Can someone please help me identify a manufacturer of blanks for plus size women. AA, Bella are way too small. My customer base is varied; teens to adult women in their 50s but they are all women who still like fitted shirts. This seems to be a major problem for people to find plus size fitted shirts. The average size of a woman has gotten larger but the plus size women still want to wear shirts that are fitted and sexy in their size.
Can someone please help me. I have started a new clothing line in a niche area and plus size women are a huge customer of mine. If I can not find them already made, I may have to get the shirts made at a cut and sew place.

Thank you everyone. Sorry for the length of this post but I am desperate. Enjoy your day!

I think all of us women are looking for the same thing; I'm beginning to think it's just a figment of our imagination!

What blend, if any, did you find at FashionGo? I am also looking for fitted tees for "real women" that are all sizes...would also like my lines to match from Sm to 3 or 4X. Really want a cotton/lycra or spandex blend, but at this point just might be satisfied without the blend.

Do you mind telling me where you purchase from on FashionGo? I have tried looking thru there, but that also seems impossible....

I'm looking for the same thing, a customer of mine showed me a Champion T #21737 in a 3X that she likes, but I cannot find a wholesaler who carries it. Nice V-neck, generous cut. How can it be so very difficult to find nice ladies shirts in plus sizes, when (it seems) half the population needs these sizes? Please let me know if you find something (one I found is from Canada, Jerico.ca) ... I have applied for an account there but haven't heard back yet. They seem to have ladies shirts up to size 5X.

Have you looked at LAT? They only make ladies' and girls' apparel, and the "classic" model t-shirt goes up to 3X, and comes in 20 really pretty colors. They are not cheap, but the quality is excellent, and the style is feminine without being tight--shorter sleeves, a shaped silhouette, a lower, softer neckline. I think they are easily as good as AA (which I don't think all that highly of, given the price), and they FIT. A Large is a Large, not a Teensy. I use them for my women's sizes, and they passed the acid test: they fit ME. (I am not overweight, but I am tall and muscular and, er, "fill out a sweater", so when a shirt is too tight in the chest in order to fit my waist, it makes me very cranky, and if it's too big in the waist, it makes me look fat, which makes me REALLY cranky.)

I will look over my suppliers for 4X, but so far 3X is the highest I have seen.

Cute, but I can't even afford to look at their website let alone buy anything from them ... $20 for a blank tee? The price drops to $19 if you need more than 96 of them ... (I don't) ...

Thanks, though

We did find that LAT has some nice styles that go up to like a 3X that really is a 3X. We've gotten a few of those in and they are excellent quality for more like $4 a shirt ...

Thanks for the review of the LAT 3x Tees. I agree the Gabrielle shirts are way too pricey. Good to know about the LAT's being true in size.

The prices that you see on the Gabrielle website are retail. If you belong to ASI you will receive better pricing.

Naturally it will be less at wholesale price, but typically wholesale is "about half" and even $10 per shirt is too rich for my blood

Try www.womanwithin.com. I don't know how "tight" their t-shirts fit, but I use them for my plus size customers and they are happy with them.

Really great info guys! I have been looking desperately as well and had just signed up for LAT before seeing the reviews on here. I will have to order the 3x they have to see if it fits my busty female customers :-).

I'm still on the hunt for some more fashionable tees (off the shoulder, etc) for plus sized ladies and will report back if I'm able to find any. If anyone here knows where I should look please respond.

WOW! Better late then never. I too am looking for plus size ladies tops. I have bought several from Plus Size Clothing at Woman Within® and they are great but getting them on sale is about the only way to afford them. The ones I bought are no longer available in the size I need and/or color. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
