Navigating Redbubble t-shirt sizes can be mixed. Some users report accurate fits, while others mention variations. Checking specific product reviews and size charts helps ensure a satisfying purchase experience.
Are Redbubble Shirts True to Size?
Since Redbubble t-shirts are getting increasingly popular every year, I thought I would write a post summarizing what
772 customers had to say about the fit and sizes of every t-shirt, top, and tank top sold on Redbubble.
Most Redbubble shirts run small.

Chiffon Tops vs Size
Redbubble’s chiffon tops are meant to be a loose fit with a boxy style.
Some people said these chiffon tops run small, so they went up one or two sizes. Make sure to click on the view size guide link available on each shirt’s product description page because the chiffon tops are not made with stretchy fabric.
I bought a few of these. Before I purchased them I read reviews about them. People said they were too tight/small. So I went up a size when I bought them. The colors were as described, the price was good. The size? I should have gone up 2 sizes, they are still a bit too small. – Debbi on Mar 26, 2018 [RES]
Another common complaint was that the chiffon-style tops are shorter than normal shirts. I’m 4’11”, so, fortunately, that wasn’t a problem for me.
Great quality product but remember chiffon style tops are shorter than usual t shirts but overall apart from being a little short its great – The B. on Jan 2, 2018 [RES]
The shirt is perfect, the print looks amazing, and the fit is just what I expected based on the size chart. I like to wear crop tops and this def isn’t one, it comes down at least 3 inches below the top of my high-waisted jeans, so based on other comments I’m a little disappointed lol since I was hoping it would be a little shorter. It’s not supposed to be though so y’know…10/10 would buy again – Melissa on Feb 3, 2020 [RES]
My top is beautiful and the size fits me great. I love the design of my top. I’ve gotten many compliments. It’s also comfortable and washes up nice. – Stacey on Jul 16, 2020 [RES]
Fitted T-Shirts vs Size
Redbubble’s fitted t-shirts are often described as soft, comfortable, and durable.
So soft and comfortable. Well made. I love this shirt. Runs a bit small for size. – Matt D. on Apr 28, 2021 [RES]
Just like the chiffon tops, the main complaint about the fitted shirts was that they run small. So you have to order a size or two larger than what you normally would wear.
This is the only place I can get a long fitted t-shirt! I love the length! Not only that but the art and selection is gorgeous not to mention unique. Quality shirt! Please make sure you read the measurements for this one! They tend to run a little small. I’m a size S-M in most shirts but wear a L in the fitted t-shirt. My t-shirt collection is mostly RB fitted t-shirts now. – Chelsea on Mar 26, 2021 [RES]
If you don’t like your shirts too tight, you should really think about choosing a different style of shirt. These are called “fitted” for a reason.
This is hard to review because I have ordered several t shirts from Redbubble. My advice is to be careful the style you order. At the bottom of every t shirt you can scroll through the type you want. The fitted t shirt is very small. I am 5’6″ and 125lbs and the large is too small. It is VERY fitted. I ordered a different style the next time and was very happy with the fit. – Martha M. on Jan 28, 2021 [RES]
Fabric is very soft and comfortable. Fit is correct according to the women’s sizing chart. A large women’s fits like a small men’s standard t-shirt. I washed them in warm water and they didn’t shrink and the design held up well. – Kathaleen L. on Jun 8, 2020 [RES]
Fitted V-Neck & Fitted Scoop T-Shirts vs Size
That’s probably because they’re made by the same company, Bella+Canvas. The only difference is in the necklines, and I didn’t read any complaints about it.
T-shirt was exactly as expected. It is a fitted t-shirt, so I would suggest going up a size as it is quite snug. Great quality, fantastic service. Would definitely recommend. – Olympia C. on Dec 7, 2020, Fitted V-Neck T-Shirt [RES]
Really cute design and good print quality. Unfortunately, the largest size for women is not really made for plus size women. – Mette on Oct 27, 2020, Fitted V-Neck T-Shirt [RES]
Graphics on Redbubble often great. Size is good. Bought my usual size. Prints are of good quality. Customer service is excellent. Would definitely buy again. – Marijke E. on Oct 22, 2020, Fitted Scoop T-Shirt [RES]
this shirt is the best fitted for me and looks the nicest out of all your shirts. most fit me but this one is definitely the most flattering. I wish it came in many colours. the print is perfect! I’ve ordered a few shirts from you and they’re always great. – Risa C. on Apr 6, 2021, Fitted Scoop T-Shirt [RES]
Premium Scoop T-Shirts vs Size
Out of all the shirts I bought, I really like Redbubble’s premium scoop shirts the best. Not only do they come with a wash bag (I love anything free), but I really like the softness of the fabric, the fit, and the curved hemline.
These shirts, which have the brand name AS Colour, are also made with preshrunk fabric.
Fits perfectly and kept its shape after several washes – Amanda m. on Jun 18, 2020 [RES]
Although the shirt is advertised as being a “regular fit” shirt, I would still suggest clicking on the view size guide link available on each shirt’s product description page as I find it very accurate.
Some customers complained that the shirt was too long but, personally, I love the length.
Very nice fabric, good quality. T-shirts do come a little too long, not for petite ladies – Milda on Dec 29, 2019 [RES]
Hi Redbubble team, I was very pleased with my t-shirt :-) thank you … it fit perfectly (as per the sizing guide!) & the quality of the fabric is great. The print quality is also very good (has been through a few good washes already). I was also pleased with the added bonus of the zip wash bag. All of my Redbubble order/s have been handled extremely well & I’ve been particularly pleased with how my different items have been packaged. Cheers to you & keep up your great work!!! – Desiree W. on Nov 3, 2019 [RES]
Relaxed Fit T-Shirts vs Size
Unlike the other women’s shirts I’ve reviewed so far, some customers thought that Redbubble’s relaxed fit shirts came in a size that’s bigger than what they’re used to. Most customers suggested buying one size down.
It’s a good quality shirt and print, but the sizing is crazy. I’m a curvy girl and very used to getting a size up. But this runs pretty big. – Megan on Apr 17, 2018 [RES]
Out of all the women’s shirts on Redbubble, I definitely find this shirt to be the most comfortable. And it’s a nice shirt if you like exposing a shoulder. However, some people also complained that they found this shirt too wide and short.
I ordered 3 of the relaxed fit t-shirts, having done so before. >This time the shirts were wider and shorter than I had expected. Not quite what I was looking for. That said, the quality of the material is great, as is the image I had ordered for the shirts. – Mona W. on Oct 11, 2019 [RES]
Personally, I can’t wear this shirt without a tank top underneath (Amazon) because, without one, I would expose myself to the world if I bent down. lol
Fits great and looks great. And it’s nice and soft. The colors last through the wash. – Brianna on Dec 23, 2020 [RES]
So, if you’re looking for a shirt with room to breathe, this might be the perfect style for you!
I love Redbubble and their t-shirts. Huge fan of the relaxed fit and the endless options of designs. People are always commenting on my fabulous [tees] (I’m building quite a collection) and I am always sharing [Redbubble’s] fabulous website. The relaxed fit runs a little larger than the other styles so in my case I need a small instead of a medium – love the comfort of this style. And the fabric is a nice cotton or cotton blend instead of the chintzy paper thin tees so often found in stores these days. – Shelley M. on Feb 17, 2017 [RES]
Sleeveless Tops vs Size
Redbubble’s sleeveless tops are light and breathable, and definitely one of my favorite things to wear in the summer.
It fits perfectly, is very smooth and looks fabulous! – Katja on Jun 26, 2020 [RES]
But some customers thought this style of shirt was too short and tight around the chest, so make sure you take measurements and click on the view size guide link available on each shirt’s product description page or check out how I take my measurements to get the perfect-sized shirt.
I truly love this style top. I have it in several different designs by a number of different artists! They’re soft and easy to take care of. My only complaint is they’re juuuust a bit short by 1-2″ inches. Please lengthen! – Gwynn V. on Jun 21, 2019 [RES]
My daughter loves the sleeveless top. She loves the silky feel. She just wishes it was a bit longer. She is only 5’3” and the top barely reaches the top of her jeans. – Bethany on Jun 23, 2019 [RES]
Fantastic product, sizing a bit on the small side, but still good – Susan on Feb 17, 2021 [RES]
Racerback Tank Tops vs Size
Customers thought that Redbubble’s racerback tank tops were light, soft, comfortable, and easy to wash. These tank tops are perfect for summer!
However, please note that a few people mentioned that the straps were a bit too long for them, making the top too low at the front.
The straps were a bit long but after I washed the tank in warm water they shrunk to the right fit. – Lindsey on Jun 14, 2016 [RES]
The size was an issue with some of the people as well. You might want to go a size or two up because this tank top is form-fitting.
I love it. The print is amazing. The quality of the material is good. I normally have a size M, but for this I ordered a L and it fits good. – Afra A. on Mar 21, 2021 [RES]
fit great everywhere but a bit tight in the chest for ladies that have larger chest and may want a [looser fit]. Quality is very good and the print looks amazing. Will definitely buy again – Aubrie on Mar 18, 2021 [RES]
Baseball 3/4 Sleeve T-Shirts vs Size
I absolutely LOVE this style of this shirt on a man. Let’s just get that out of the way. lol
I find Redbubble’s baseball shirts are very soft and lightweight, and apparently, they’re quite comfortable.
Boyfriend loved them – it’s his preferred style of t shirt, and they fit really well – will definitely buy more. – Jessica on Sep 3, 2020 [RES]
Really good exactly what I wanted it fits great and is super comfortable. – Ross C. on Jan 16, 2021 [RES]
Overall, there weren’t any complaints from customers about the fit and the length of this t-shirt.
Quality, length was perfect! Thank you! Can’t wait to order another baseball tee! – Timothy E. on Jan 11, 2018 [RES]
The fabric is soft, light and pleasant on the skin. The print quality is excellent. It is a comfortable t-shirt and fits nicely. Highly recommended. – Kathleen on Feb 16, 2020 [RES]
Graphic T-Shirts vs Size
Personally, I really think that the printing on Redbubble’s graphic t-shirts is better than the other shirts.
A high quality T-shirt with excellent printing. A very good fit and holds its shape after repeated [washing]. The choice of designs is huge with something for everyone. – Mark on Aug 2, 2021 [RES]
I also like how they fit (even though they’re supposed to be a man’s shirt). However, you might want to order a size up if you don’t like a fitted t-shirt.
I bought 4 of the graphic style… All of them are just as I expected from the images. Wonderful thin fabric–watch the fit: these are slightly smaller than most traditionally sized T-shirts. – Tracy L. on Jan 26, 2018 [RES]
As mentioned in the customer review above, the shirt’s fabric is on the thin side but it’s comfortable to wear and soft.
The artwork is fantastic, great quality. The fit is superb. Fabric is good quality, lovely and soft. – Fiona on Jan 22, 2021 [RES]
Overall, most customers liked the feel and fit of the shirt.
T-shirt feels great, fits great, and looks great. Helps to look at your personal sizes and pick the material you know you enjoy, I dont like cotton! – Luke on May 23, 2020 [RES]
Long T-Shirts vs Size
Redbubble’s long t-shirts aren’t the most popular of the bunch. But, if you’re really tall, these long t-shirts might be for you!
Being a kind of tall guy having a long tshirt is just the best thing ever! So many tshirts I have are too short and ride up when I sit down. That’s why I LOVE these long tshirts. And the fabric of the grey one is super soft after a few washes. Great tshirt! – ERIC J. on Nov 4, 2020 [RES]
T-Shirt feels very soft yet durable, amazing length for someone who’s a little taller than average (6’6) and the print was printed on very well – James on Jun 2, 2019 [RES]
I’m only 4’11” so these shirts are PERFECT as a nightgown. lol. These shirts are really comfy, soft, and long-lasting.
Great shirts for women I’m a dancer so I ordered for my dancer friends I work with. They like the long shirts with their leggings or tights – Stephen S. on Apr 7, 2021 [RES]
As for size, you might want to go one size up (although this wasn’t a complaint from other customers in recent years) but click on the view size guide link available on each shirt’s product description page to make sure you’re buying the perfect size for you.
Shirt came faster than expected, quality is amazing as always. I personally love the long shirts since i’m tall and always struggle to find shirts that actually fit my length and these do. I’m only going to buy these. I sometimes wish Redbubble would consider selling those bad boys in more than only 3 colours though. – Ben on May 8, 2020 [RES]
Long Sleeve T-Shirts vs Size
Redbubble says their long sleeve t-shirt is slim fitting, so you MIGHT want to go a size up.
Nice, but did come up a little smaller than expected for a large. – Maria on Jul 7, 2021 [RES]
However, I don’t find many customers were complaining about the fit of this shirt compared to other slim-fit shirts. Most reviewers said that the shirt was a good fit and have a great length.
The size fit. My husband is 175 cm tall and has a weight of 70 kg. If he raises his arms you don’t see his belly. ;) So the length fit also. – Lisa H. on Feb 3, 2021 [RES]
Great shirt! Was a gift for my husband and he loved it. Fit great , nice fabric. Would purchase again! – Elise F. on Mar 21, 2021 [RES]
Other than that, the long sleeve shirt has the same soft, comfortable, and durable feel as other Bella+Canvas shirts.
I have received several long sleeved shirts and find them to be the best product that Redbubble has so far. The quality is great, the fit is good, and most of the designs I’ve purchased have come out really great. I will definitely continue purchasing from Redbubble. They have great customer service and so many cool products. – Lindsey S. on Oct 28, 2019 [RES]
Premium T-Shirts vs Size
Most reviewers really liked the softness of the fabric, the fit, and the durability of Redbubble’s premium t-shirt.
These shirts, which have the brand name AS Colour, are made with preshrunk fabric.
Really happy with the shirts. I have been wearing the for work everyday and the still fit great and haven’t shrunk – Jye on Jun 6, 2021 [RES]
I always try to buy premium T shirt because the quality and the fitting is perfect. Soft texture of materials well worth the price in the long run. Recently I have bought about 10 T shirts and probably will buy some more too!! – Balwinder on Apr 22, 2021 [RES]
Overall, customers seemed to enjoyed these shirts, with a few minor complaints (as seen by the following reviews).
Hi I love the design and it’s obviosuly high quality material. and feels nice on the skin The length and width (across chest) is as expected (fine). My only slight gripe is that the head hole is marginally bigger than I like, so exposing more of my neck! – Eddie on Feb 2, 2021 [RES]
The T-shirt overall quality is good, but I found the tee to be very long unlike the regular T-shirts. Otherwise its good – mohammed a. on Feb 14, 2020 [RES]
V-Neck T-Shirts vs Size
Redbubble’s v-neck t-shirts had great reviews overall. Customers loved the lightness and softness of the fabric. Most people also liked the length of the shirt.
Good fit and looks good and material is nice and breathable. – Tim M. on Jan 3, 2021 [RES]
Redbubble advertises this shirt as slim-fitting, but only a few people complained about the size being too small. So, you might want to consider going one size up… and you might not. (Click here to find out how I buy the perfect sized t-shirt every time).
Redbubble V neck tshirts r the best. Great fit every time. – Nancy T. on Jul 31, 2020 [RES]
I ordered this for a colleague in the US. It arrived earlier than anticipated and he was delighted by the quality of the material and the artwork. The size was as stated. Top notch. I will be ordering again – Will on Sep 28, 2020 [RES]
Please Note: Different colored shirts are made from different types of fabric. You can see the fabric’s information in the “Features” section of any v-neck shirt’s product page.
Tank Tops vs Size
Reviewers thought that Redbubble’s tank tops were light, comfortable, and fit well.
I absolutely love their tank tops! They are my go to comfort clothes – Heather B. on Jul 13, 2020 [RES]
My Fiancé loved the tank top. The XL is true to size, and the print was crisp and done well. The top washes well, the material has not faded nor has the image flaked or peeled… I will definitely be ordering again from Redbubble. This is my second order with them, and both orders were well-received. – Emily on Mar 5, 2021 [RES]
A few people mentioned that they wish the tank top was a little bit longer and that it shrinks a bit in the wash. Since this is a slim-fit tank top, you might want to order a size up.
Fits well, could be a tony bit longer. Decent quality item and print job. It shrink just a tiny bit in the wash – Tyson on Jun 10, 2018 [RES]
I’ve been a returning customer of Redbubble’s. I’ve tried some other sites but I’m sticking with Redbubble. Their stuff fits great. The print can take a beating. I bought shirt and hoodies, but the tank tops are absolutely great. Wouldn’t look anywhere else, Redbubble got what I (and you) need. – Nicolas O. on Jun 7, 2017 [RES]
Active T-Shirts vs Size (New!)
The new active t-shirts from Redbubble are already a hit since they are quick-drying, breathable, and designed for your toughest workouts.
These shirts are made to fit comfortably with some stretch. It’s everything you would expect from a sport-friendly shirt.
It’s very light and good quality material that’s easy to breath when exercising. The sizing is great, the shirt fits like a glove. – Sophie C. on Mar 26, 2021 [RES]
I love the fit and colors. Definitely going to order more. I have gotten several compliments on the design on the shirt. I love it! – Lynn A. on Apr 27, 2021 [RES]
Just a quick few notes for this shirt: You might want to go a size up as I find this shirt runs small.
Great quality but was not true to size as it was smaller than expected. – Jenna G. on May 12, 2021 [RES]
Size ran a little smaller but otherwise great! – Adrienne L. on Apr 9, 2021 [RES]
And don’t put this t-shirt in the dryer! Make sure to hang dry. Other than that, this shirt is great!
Classic T-Shirts vs Size
These soft, comfortable, preshrunk classic t-shirts from Redbubble are some of the most popular shirts sold on Redbubble. If you’re looking for a traditionally styled t-shirt, the classic shirt is for you.
The quality is great and so is the print! It fits really well and comfortably. The art itself is beautiful and the shades are vibrant – man R. on Jul 22, 2021 [RES]
The vast majority of reviews said the shirt’s fit was as described.
My husband loved the unique tee-Shirt I bout for him! Fits well and is very comfortable!
Awesome!! – Sandra G. on Jul 29, 2021 [RES]
Very comfortable and true to size!!! Excellent product and wonderful color choices. – Jennifer on Jul 3, 2021 [RES]
Love the quality,great fit ,if you order a 2 or 3 xl that’s exactly what you get,I have ordered t shirts before on other sites and a 2 xl is more like a large,I have been a returning customer,very quick postage is a plus as well,highly recommended AAA – Andrew on Apr 11, 2021 [RES]
UPDATE: These classic shirts now come in sizes up to 5x!
Essential T-Shirts vs Size
Reviewers seemed to agree that Redbubble’s essential t-shirts are very comfortable and have a nice length. The fabric is soft and has a little bit of a stretch to it, which probably helps with the comfort.
For men, you might want to go a size up because it’s technically a slim fit and some said the shirt was too small (or buy one of Redbubble’s classic shirts).
Great quality but a little on the small size, would order next size up next time! – Merrin R. on Feb 2, 2021 [RES]
However, some people (mostly women) contradicted this and said the sizing was accurate or ran big. So you’ll definitely need to click on the view size guide link available on each shirt’s product description page before buying this shirt. You can also check out how I take my measurements to get the perfect-sized shirt.
For women, size runs big so I got a small instead of a medium and it fit great. And of course, an incredible addition to any wardrobe, fashion wise. – Socrates B. on Mar 11, 2021 [RES]
Even though this shirt is considered a slim fit, customers said that the neckline isn’t too high or tight.
Very nice fabric. Soft and somewhat stretchy. Fits well and the size is perfect. I ordered the wrong size and was sent the correct size for no charge. I was blown away by that type of service! I would buy again from redbubble in a heartbeat! – Cale B. on Jan 30, 2021 [RES]
Tri-Blend T-Shirts vs Size
People really liked the extreme softness and overall feel of Redbubble’s tri-blend shirt.
… After trying on the shirt, the fit and comfort proved to be better than expected. The triblend’s comfort and softness are terrific. If you are looking for a heavier type shirt, this wouldn’t be a good choice. This shirt is much cooler to wear in hot weather, not overly bulky. Smooth… – William on Oct 28, 2017 [RES]
This shirt has a nice fit and length and won’t expose your stomach.
The fabric is soft, the fit is LONG ENOUGH and the print is beautiful. I ordered 1 tri-blend shirt and 9 slim fit shirts and they all fit beautifully and look amazing. I love this product. – Renee on Jul 31, 2019 [RES]
Most reviewers said that the sizing guide available on each shirt’s product description page was very accurate. Redbubble does advertise this shirt as being a slim fit, so you might want to consider ordering a size up.
I really love the fabric. If has a good quality feel to it and it’s soft. The fit is quite standard, perhaps on the smaller size of anything but I prefer more fitted than baggy anyway. Nice colours too; it could be nice to have a few more for that type of fabric so I can have more different t-shirts ;-) – Rene B. on Dec 16, 2020 [RES]
Long time shirt wearer, first time reviewer, Just ordered my 6th Redbubble Tri-blend t-shirt and I don’t want to reach for anything else. Incredibly comfortable, perfect fit, of [course], but here’s the real 2: -don’t show sweat -don’t accentuate my burgeoning man-boobs At 41, these are my problems with most shirts, typically relegating me to a palate of dark grey, navy or black. With Rudbubble’s Tri-blend, I can even wear color again! I’d imagine they are even better for those without the above mentioned problems, the PERFECT shirt! Thanks Redbubble – Matthew on Aug 1, 2021 [RES]
Conclusion: What Size Should I Get on Redbubble?
Most Redbubble shirts will run small, with a few exceptions.
However, I’ve successfully ordered perfectly sized t-shirts on Redbubble many times. Here’s what I do to figure out the perfect size for my t-shirts, tops, and tank tops when shopping on Redbubble.com.
- I take my favorite shirt and I lay it flat.
- I measure the distance between the armpits and multiply that number by two. That’s my chest measurement.
- To measure the length of the shirt, I measure the distance between the top of the shoulder, right next to the collar, to the bottom of the shirt.
Then, with these measurements, I go to the product description page of the shirt I want to buy, and I click on the “view size guide” link.
I will certainly continue getting shirts from Redbubble. Comfortable, well made, great fit, competitive price… what’s not to love? – Susan on Jun 11, 2021 [RES]
And, worse comes to worst, if your shirt doesn’t fit or you’re just not impressed with the fabric or print of your shirt, it’s easy (and free) to return a Redbubble shirt within 90 days.
The people at this site are wonderful…..when my shirt didn’t fit, they just sent another one without even a return of the first order!! What a treat to have such service! – Margy B. on Mar 3, 2016 [RES]
The t-shirts are of fantastic quality, as have been all the shirts I have purchased from Redbubble, and the fact that if a mistake is made when filling my order, you all bend over backwards to make it right, has made me a fan and a lifetime customer! Thank you! – Brenda E. on Mar 28, 2021 [RES]
