The label can also be on the side or bottom seam. The label, as a rule, indicates information about the manufacturer, data on care of the product and size.

It is defined, as already mentioned, according to American or European standards: Latin letters or numbers. The main thing is not to forget that in the same countries, the same dimensions may differ slightly from one another. The thing is that many manufacturers started to make clothes before the uniform standards were set. As a result, they had to develop their own. Nevertheless, in the main, everyone tries to adhere to the established standard of standard sizes.

And one more nuance. The size of T-shirts is better to choose, also taking into account the growth of a person. The thing is that the volume of the chest can be quite large. Thus growth - small. In a word, a non-standard figure. That is, in any case, the most reliable method is fitting.

## Do not forget about shrinkage

Remember also that both women's and men's sizes of T-shirts can change literally after the first wash. Things can sit down, that is, decrease in size. This is not surprising, because shrinkage is a natural behavior of natural fabrics, not processed before washing with special methods and means. Clothing has the property to sit down to 5% of the original size. This must be taken into account before buying.

Inherent shrinkage of practically all the t-shirts from the not so expensive category. Expensive brands usually do not sit down. And this is no secret. It's not tissue, and an additional stage of its preparation. The material is initially subjected to shrinkage. Only after that sewn him a shirt.

Manufacturers of the same average price category shrinkage before manufacturing. Therefore, on the products are indicated already those sizes, which they will acquire after washing. Accordingly, do not be surprised that the T-shirt you are buying is slightly larger than stated on the label.

In a word, observing all these rules, you are in no way mistaken with the choice of the right thing. It's not at all difficult.
