Woman's Shirt Option???

Postby Vinyl4Blood » Wed Aug 17, 2016 12:06 pm

Why is there no woman's shirt option? My wife and daughter both really like the designs on the shirts, but the men's shirts don't fit them.

Would anyone else like to see a Woman's shirt option in the Powered By Funko boxes? What is your opinion?

I for One would love the option to have women's shirts or tanks. We subscribe to all the boxes and cannot use the shirts as they are NOT flattering to ladies.

Especially since the next Legion of Collectors box is "Women of DC"... you would think this would be the perfect time to debut women's options.

Tanks would be good too.

I have asked a few times on Twitter during their Q&A's and have never gotten a response back. The men's XS fit okay, but still baggy. I wish they had proper sizes!

I have struggled with this for a long time, especially as I have grown older and gotten more curves. I would rather wear a fitted shirt versus a uni-sex that is baggy at my waist and tight on my hips. If they do add the option I hope it will be woman sizing and not junior sizing.

Yeah ... I recently signed up for Smuggler's Bounty so I have no first-hand experience with the shirts as of yet. But I decided to go off of my hip size and then will probably just wear the shirt with leggings.

Assuming it's long enough.

I've always had a very pear-shaped figure (no chest, wide hips) so men's sizes are no bueno. However, I had some good luck with men's T-shirts at Target, so I have my fingers crossed that these will fit similarly. (So of course they won't.)

Just curious do you know which ones you have had luck with at target? I bought some a few years back and they fit horrible and I gave them to my stick figure nieces.

I have been getting medium in the boxes but since they are unisex I haven't even bothered to take them out of the package, I think I have over 300 T-shirts so don't have the need. If they were women's they would have been ripped open by now :)

I hope if they do make women's sizes in the future, they go back and print that rad Spider Gwen one! I thought it was silly that they didn't have women's sizes for the Women of Marvel box.

I have had good luck with the slim fit men's t-shirts at Target. I would rather have a youth sized t-shirt though than a juniors sized t-shirt. I feel like mostly novelty shirts in women's sizes are juniors.

They were the men's Star Wars shirts. I went with the L (for reference, I wear a US 8) and that size fits nicely. It's a bit long, but I like wearing dresses and tunics and such with leggings or skinny jeans, so it worked out for me. I also don't like shirts that are oppressively tight, and it gave me enough room to breathe.

My one problem with women's shirts is that, as someone mentioned, they tend to be Juniors sizing and then I still can't wear them. I wind up with an XL or 1X when I ordinarily wear an M because I hate tight shirts, and then the sleeves are always those god-awful cap sleeves. If the boxes got women's shirts, I would hope they would just be curvy cut regular tee shirts and not the tissue paper-weight, too-tight tees everyone seems to think I want to wear.

But who knows? Maybe I'll be happy with the cut of these.

Unfortunatley I have found my breast are too big for the slim fit shirts. Maybe Women's shirts should have a multiple size so it includes breasts for me I would need a M-L I wear mediums but a large breast, those with smaller breast but size 8-10 could get M-S. I know it's a pipe dream but it would be amazing!

Junior sized shirts are the devil for us larger chested ladies. I have to buy a XXL in those when I can fit into a men's medium - I hate it. But I would appreciate something that is just a normal woman's size because men's shirts can be so boxy, ugh.

I actually prefer unisex shirts. I wear the xs in this box, and it fits a little loose except in the bust (and I am not large-chested), but it looks good. I hate tight, tight clothes even though hubby would encourage it. lol

I gave my gf my Women of DC shirt and she loves the design but it hits her funny in the shoulders. I think it's idiotic they don't size for women..

My batman v superman shirt was used as a night gown before arizona finally got cold like 10 minutes ago. But it would be nice to have a shirt I could wear other than for sleeping.
Also, I wish the caps were normally baseball tees as they are slightly more fitting for my head than the snapbacks.

I agree about the shirts...I sleep in them because I can't make them work because they are so baggy. I would totally wear a nice dolman, tank top or fitted tee.

I would hope/assume that women's versions will be offered for the Disney boxes. The one thing I want to see changed about the women's shirts is the neckline. It is too high IMO. I personally don't like necklines that are so high that I can't easily get my head through them without messing up my hair in the process. The high necklines are from an aesthetic standpoint less flattering as well. Lowering the neckline by two or three inches would really make a difference, but still leave plenty of room for the character(s) on the shirt. I haven't bought a number of shirts that have been released because of the neckline.
