Ok. My sister J. lives close to both a Shade and Down East Basic (outlet) store and offered to go and buy shirts for me and ship them. Shade was having a sale on their undershirts for $10/shirt (or so it seemed), so I took her up on it. When she got there, there were certain stipulations in order to get the $10 price, so I passed on it. She then went to Down East Basics and bought shirts for me there. They didn't carry any maternity at that store (except tanks), so she got me regular mediums. Thanks J.! I appreciate it.
All were size regular medium. Three were the crew neck and two were the undershirts. I decided that they're not real careful on their product control (is that what it's even called?) because they all fit me a little differently. The brown shirt fit the best, and the green shirt was the tightest resulting in some minor love handles...Notice the necks of the 3 crews were all a little different. One sleeve on the black is slightly sticky-outy.
Overall, not a bad shirt for the price (especially since some were on sale), but don't expect every shirt to be exactly the same. Also, if I had to do it over, I'd probably get the regular large from them as opposed to the pictured mediums. I also have to say that I actually prefer the feel and fit of the Shade medium maternity to the Down East regular medium, but my camera battery died so I couldn't get you a picture of the Shade. Unfortunately the Shade shirts were nearly twice the price. The material and quality is better, imo, so I can see them being more expensive. Twice the quality to justify twice the price? Not really, but I'm still glad I have a few Shade.
