have a problem with "baby doll" shirts. In theory, they're made to give a better fit for women's tee shirts, in that they actually have a curve to the waist and some other minor shaping. In practice, they fit even smaller than most women's shirts: narrow through the shoulders/sleeves, usually a high/small neck opening, and many have fairly short hems. I haven't yet seen a "baby doll" style that has extra room in front, any extra coverage required (see "tracts of land") comes off of the front length and gives you a mullet in shirt form - short in the front, long in the back. Some of that has been fixed now that longer shirts are in fashion.
With that said, I'm happy to see that the "baby doll" tees come in larger sizes, and I'm off to check the noobstore size guide to see if I can find a good fit (Thanks for the confirmation, Graham!).
ETA: Does anyone know the actual brand of women's tees? Noobstore sizing guide only goes up to (a very small) 2XL, and the pics show a very short hem. LRR sizing goes up to 4XL (w00t!) but I want to double check measurements before ordering.
