You have normal arms, of course.  Men tend to have longer arms for their body length than women, and since most t-shirts are usually cut for men...  :)

Actually, it's that men have wider shoulders...
Women, on average, have longer limbs compared to the length of their torsos.  My partner and I are good examples.  He is 2 inches taller, but I ride a taller bike and have longer arms.  His shirts are all longer, though, because his shoulders are significantly wider.  (small football player).

I'm not too fond of that shirt because of the 2 color raglan sleeve thing.  We pear shaped women look particularly pear-ish in that style.  Ironically, it tends to be a good style for men. (and more balanced women)

I'm balanced!  I've got chocolate in both hands!
I do think that the length is good for bigger around woman so it doesn't drape onto fingertips.  The rest of the look -  I'm not a fashion plate anyway.
We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!
But do beware the toad burps.

Same here, plus I just don't like the look of that style.

Point Taken.  Hmmm.  Well, we've got a month or two before I can do much of anything anyway.  Patty assures me that we are indeed on a budget . . .  :o     I'll try to find something in a short sleeve solid black.   The problem is that I have NO fashion sense, so if I like it, everyone else is bound to hate it!   :P
Where's my super-suit?

Then I'll end up with either something that's very fitted (and you have no idea how long my eldest daughter can spend getting something that fits just right), or something that looks like it escaped from the Hippy era,  or something out of "Hot Topics: The goth chick collection".   None of these kids dress normally!

Mominator says we should do coffee cups -- fewer people worry about how they fit!

Mominator is right! 

Or chocolate mugs. :)

You know, they're doing lots & lots of bags made of recycled plastic these days; how about book/grocery bags with -- wait a minute!  This belongs in suggestions, not MG shirt styles!

Quick mention:  take a look at the Store link from the home page, there are some new shirts available!
