Anvil’s Women’s Tri-Blend Racerback Tank (6751L) demonstrates the brand’s commitment to “effortlessly chic styles with a modern look”. Made from a soft tri-blend material (50% polyester/25% cotton/25% viscose), the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified racerback offers a semi-fitted silhouette with side seam and twin-needle bottom hem. It comes in seven heather colours and sizes LSX-L2XL.

Bella was introduced 30 years ago with the aim of making garments that would flatter and fit any shape or size woman (the men’s collection, Canvas, was added later). The poly-viscose blend Women’s Flowy Long Sleeve Off Shoulder Tee from Bella+Canvas has a relaxed, drapey fit and rib cuffs and waistband. It comes in a variety of solid, marble and neon colours.

The Tee Jays collection, which BTC activewear says is based on “leading classic and fashion products”, has introduced the Ladies’ Active Fleece (TJ9170). This shaped fit, lightweight microfleece is available in two colours. Also highlighted by BTC activewear is Sharon Women’s Oversized Crew Neck T-Shirt (ST9550) from Stars by Stedman, B&C’s Women’s Safran Timeless Fine Piqué Polo (PW457) and the Ladies’ Full Zip Hooded Sweatshirt (CC1598) from Comfort Colors.

Comfort Colors uses preshrunk fabric that is garment-dyed for a worn-in, weathered look. The Ladies Sweatshirt (1596) with a crew-neck is made from a 305 gsm, 80% ringspun cotton/20% polyester and features a semi-fitted contour. There is a choice of 1×1 rib on the cuffs and waistband, and there are 13 colours available.

The Lady-Fit Sofspun T (160/165 gsm) from Fruit of the Loom has a fashion fit and is, says the brand, ideal for retail, tourism, licensing, music merchandising and corporatewear. There are ten bold colours for 2016 – sunflower, red, orange, Kelly green, royal blue, fuchsia, heather grey, deep navy, black and white – and comes in sizes XS-2XL.
