This t-shirt is a form-fitting, slim fit and very light fabric weight. It is designed to hug your body and is soooo soft. I recommend sizing up. Please see last photo for sizing and read the below sizing tip. Please see our relaxed tees for a looser fit.
Take a favorite t-shirt and measure it flat from armhole to armhole (seam to seam) across the chest for the chest measurement. For the length, flip the t-shirt over and measure from the seam at the top of the shoulder near the collar to the bottom hem. Then compare it to the sizing chart in the last photo.

◊ Shipping Costs
I ship from California, USA. I realize international shipping costs are not ideal, but rates are calculated automatically based on the weight of the item.
◊ Shipping Costs for Custom and Special-Tee orders
Custom and Special-Tee orders have a flat fee for shipping within the United States unless you request a different shipping option.
If you are ordering outside of the USA, you may be subject to customs fees. Unfortunately, I can't estimate delivery time on International orders. I have found it takes about 2 to 3 weeks to receive international orders.
Every country has different customs fees. For example, I looked into the UK and It looks like anything coming in from outside of the EU above that threshold £15 is charged a customs fee in addition to a handling fee of £8. Unfortunately, that is a country specific charge and not something we can handle or advise you on. Our shipping labels are generated automatically through Etsy stating the item and the cost and customs uses the information to determine the fees on the receiving end. Please check your customs fees and handling hold times through your postal system prior to ordering.
All orders include a tracking number or a customs number.
All products are nicely wrapped and properly protected. If you would like me to include a special note for your gift, please email me through Etsy and I will make sure it is special for that special someone.
Unfortunately, Shred My Couch is not able to take responsibility for lost or stolen items. If you would like to purchase insurance for your item, please select a shipping method that offers insurance.

◊ Holiday Shipping
I ship through the United States Postal Service. If you are ordering a gift for the holidays, please remember it takes me 1 - 3 business days to ship out orders. We are working overtime to get the orders processed in 1 day to meet holiday deadlines.

Again, a great experience. My daughter outgrew her first "your dog has fleas" shirt, so I bought her another.

This is SO cute and soft. I am a misses 10/12 and got the XL. Not too tight. Not too big.

Besides being an awesome & clever design, the shirt itself is soooo soft and comfortable! Shipped quickly and it's my new favorite shirt to wear! I had a ukulele as a child (only knew 2 songs -- one that my Dad made up and and another from a cousin) but I'm now the proud owner of a concert ukulele and am learning how to play it/for real so this shirt means alot to me! Thank you!
