With the soon to be arrival of our 4th little girl, I couldn't help but gawk over this shirt. When we're out and about and people see my husband surrounded by girls, they ask if he's disappointed, say they feel sorry for him, or assume that my bump is a boy. 

While my husband puts on a nice fake smile and half chuckle, its quite annoying to both of us that people can be so rude without realizing it or caring if they're offending us. 

I knew whether this shirt would be a review or a purchase, it would ultimately end up on my husband's side of the closet with his other funny shirts. Luckily Gladditudes happily said yes to a review and I saved the shirt for our maternity pictures!

We've had this shirt for a little while, so I couldn't wait for maternity pictures and to get the picture you see above! While it comes in a variety of colors, my husband is pretty basic and wanted to go with a simple black shirt. I think the black shirt really pops the letters pop off his chest and you can see from a distance what it says. 

This snug-fitting lightweight cotton jersey t-shirt for men has a stylish contoured fit and is ideal for those with a smaller frame. Reinforced shoulder construction maintains shape after repeated washings. Durable double-stitched bottom hem and stretchable cotton collar for lasting comfort and durability. Made from 100% fine combed cotton jersey (except for color code heather gray: 90% cotton, 10% polyester), with a fabric weight of 4.3 oz.

My husband is 5'8" and has a stocky build. We often have trouble with shirts because he needs length for his tummy, but the bigger sizes seem to only get wider vs longer. I chose a 3X for my husband because it seems to be the majority size for all his shirts, and with not being able to try it on, I wanted to make sure he had room vs being too small. 

After my husband wore the shirt for a couple hours, I asked him his thoughts on the comfort and fit. His only complaint was the length in front and the wish that it was longer. This shirt hits him a couple inches below the waist, so if he raises his arms completely over his head, you can see the bottom of his stomach. 

Other than the issue of length, which we always have, the shirt is great! It's soft, durable, appears to be made well, and fits him so nicely around his broad shoulders. I posted the picture on Facebook after it was taken and our friends loved it. They thought it was cute, funny, and very fitting since he'll be surrounded by four little girls and a crazy wife ;)

You can find this shirt, along with many MANY others on the Gladditudes website. Along with shirts for men, they carry hilarious maternity shirts, items for children, and even tote bags. Our shirt retails for $25 and shipping is about two weeks unless otherwise selected.
