This season, cotton shirts have overwhelmingly given way to a combination of cotton and spandex. Usually the spandex content is only 5% or so, but Francesca has seen many shirts, supposedly for summer, which are 12% spandex.
Francesca is of two minds about this trend. On one hand, a cotton/spandex mix hangs better than pure cotton on the Big Girl’s frame.
On the other, nothing beats pure cotton for freshness on a swelteringly hot summer day.
Designers read this blog, so Francesca wants to know: How do you feel about cotton/spandex blends vs. pure cotton?
