...until Munsingwear remembers how to produce quality again.
I have the same issues many others here are reporting:
- uncomfortable, poorly executed side seams
- much narrower shoulder straps than they used to have
- real flimsy cotton
- miserable sowing quality (bootom seams started ribbing on most shirts after a few washes)
Sadly, I have nothing positive to report!
These were so bad that I just sent two of the three pack back as a protest. Keep them, throw them away, just don't send them back to me. The hole for the head is twice as large as from other manufacturers. Maybe they're made for weightlifters who want the head opening to extend below the nipples.
These shirts are for everyday use. Liked that fact that they were pre-shrunk. It's a good thing, because they are pretty snug for the size ordered. Pricing was good. Munsingwear is a really good product

Since the 1st time i wore these (about 35 yrs ago) I was hooked! NO MORE! Until--unless--they return to the quality, fit, & features of 5-10 yrs ago, i will not purchase athletic shirts from Munsingwear, again. Those side seams are, not merely, uncomfortable, they will abrade your flesh if you bend across something, laterally. Even as bulky as those side seams are, I split one of them. I am a slim person, and used to appreciate the snug fit, but the way the shirt, now, fits, i feel as though my breathing is restricted. BTW: I am the same wt., and nearly the same body shape as when i 1st bought these shirts. the shoulder straps are about 1/2 as wide as they used to be---that is important to someone used to bending, lifting, reaching, & stretching--- as i am. What is more, the fabric is not as durable as it used to be. Munsingwear---I am MOST disappointed! If you want me back, as a customer, find a way to let me know you have returned to QUALITY!!! I will not buy these things, again!
Watch your 'product description' "Durable"-? "Comfortable"-No way! "Smooth fit"--MY Donkey!!!

I don't know what they have done but I placed two orders from this site a year apart. My first order of tank tops was awesome. Felt very comfy just like the munsingwear tank tops I bought years ago. I recently ordered more and when I received them they were not made the same. For one, they're a size smaller then what it should be. Two, the seams on the sides are very uncomfortable. It looks as though it was over done and lot of material was left over leaving a uncomfortable rubbing feeling. One last thing I notice that they shrink big time. Before I was able to wear them long but the recent order I got isn't long at all. It's almost waist size. Please go back the way you were making this product. You had a lot of happy customers. If it's not broken don't try to fix it.
Munsingwear athletic shirts are the ones my husband wants me to buy. The length is perfect and the shirts don't shrink alot (like other brands he's tried). Quality product that I, as the household purchasing 'agent,' strongly recommend.
