Tuesday Tip | Amazon Essentials tshirts are great!

This post contains affiliate links. I bought these shirts with my own dollars, and Amazon has not asked me to review them.

You know how finding a basic white tshirt is kind of hard?

They’re often transparent, too low-cut, too boxy, too short, and too shapeless.

Among the myriad issues, the transparency problem is the issue I encounter most often.

I saw the Amazon Essentials tshirts recommended by a fashion blogger, though, so I decided to place an order so I could try them out.

And I am happy to say that I give these a thumbs up!

(I cannot keep my eyes open in a photo, apparently.)


  • They’re really affordable
  • They’re made of a soft cotton/modal/spandex blend
  • The cut is fitted up top but looser around the waist
  • The v-neck is stylish but doesn’t require extra care when you bend over
  • THEY’RE NOT TRANSPARENT (even in white)*

Amazon Essentials tshirt review

(*Since I didn’t know this until I was an adult, maybe someone else needs to hear this too: it is super-duper helpful to wear a skin-colored bra underneath white shirts. It will disappear so, so, so much better than a white bra will.)

These shirts come in two-packs (I ordered the black and white set), and there are tons of color options, including two white shirts.

(See all the color options here.)

I’m wearing size medium, and I’ll be ordering a set of smalls for Lisey and extra-smalls for Sonia.

Because everyone needs some basic tees in their summer wardrobe!

Email subscribers: the links in this post will not work for you, but you can find the tshirts on my Amazon shop page.

How could I be as old as I am and never heard of wearing skin color instead of white bras under white shirts?? Thanks. (What else don't I know?!)

Same idea when you wear white pants, shorts or skirts.

I was definitely in my 20s before I heard of this trick! It really, really works so much better than a white bra.

YES! I discovered this in November when I was going to AZ for Thanksgiving and realized I didn't have a single short-sleeved shirt without stains or holes. (This is little-kid-mom-life of the most glamorous sort.) I didn't have time to shop anywhere--nor are they any stores near me anyway--so I desperation-ordered the Amazon t-shirts. I didn't get white--again with the little kids--but I was so happy with the gray and red ones I got that I ordered a couple of the long-sleeved ones, too. Those are a more slick fabric and fit a little differently, but I still wore them all winter. The only problem is that it is very hard to find the colors I want in my size in stock. They seem to sell out incredibly quickly. Unsurprising, I suppose, for affordable basic t-shirts that are actually good.

I ordered some Amazon Essentials t-shirts based on the recommendation of a fashion blogger. I love them! The length is great, the fit is nice, and the price is perfect!

A not-see-through t-shirt is a wardrobe staple! I live in tees in the summer.
