No matter the season, you're guaranteed to spy women of all ages wearing the classic white tee. Whether it's layered under winter coats or thrown over bikinis for the beach, we can always count on the basic to trump our wardrobe. While it's easy to spend upwards of $150 on a so-called amazing T-shirt, what should really count is the quality of the fabric and whether or not it can stand being thrown in the washing machine (and/or the dryer) day after day.
In a serious effort to find the white T-shirts worth our money and not our time, we asked our editors for their opinion on tried and tested cotton tees—the ones that fit nicely, sit well, and don't lose shape. What we found were seven under-$120 options, all proving that cost doesn't necessarily mean quality or durability. If you're the type that's not easily convinced, check out tricks on how to compare T-shirts and see for yourself before you make the purchase.
