    Hi guys I am getting really down as I cant find what I want anywhere and am hoping and I know its a long shot but someone here may know where I could go for what I want. Basically I need some new gym t shirts and a work t shirt - sounds easy huh, well my arms are so wobble and stretch marked that I need one that comes to as far towards my elbows as possible, all the t shirts I can find have really short sleves, even evans. Has anyone here brought one recently or seen some that are longer in the sleeve?

    Surprised at Evans as their normal t shirts normally come to the elbow.

    I love a long sleeved V neck myself!

    For the gym I wear Cotton Traders pique polo shirts. They go up to size 5X, I think. Actually I wear them all the time - they are so comfortable and unlike tshirts they don't stick to you if you get hot. And they come in great colours.

    The sleeves are roughly elbow length and are nice and roomy. They are also nice and long.

    They do mail order, and there are shops as well. But I usually get mine from ebay.

    Bonamarch do t's with longer arms. Have you tried them? Don't know what their size range is like though.

    Tesco also had some lovely V neck cotton T's in larger sizes with elbow length sleeves last time I looked - but that was back in June !!! Also good old M&S had some really nice slightly dressier ones too.
