Softstyle Workout Shirt Review

Founder Chris Worman in the Dark Heather Barbell Eagle Left Chest Unisex Workout Shirt WL

This unisex shirt style is the least expensive in the store because it comes in only a handful of different colors. As a result, customers can get a great quality shirt at a reduced price point. As I've expanded the store, this performance shirt has quickly become one of my favorites.

Fitness Shirt Sizing

As I've outlined in other reviews, my shirt size is usually a large. I thought this workout shirt was form-fitting, but not tight or short. For guys, this means you can probably fit into your usual size just fine. Ladies, take that into account as you compare this shirt against normal unisex sizes. I usually need to stretch out the arms when putting it on, but that's a typical experience for me.

Material Feel

Aside from the nice fit, the feel of the material was a big selling point for me. As outlined in the product descriptions, this lifting shirt is a little bit thinner and softer than most cotton shirts. This is because the cotton is 100% ring-spun cotton, a more premium material that's less prone to shrinking and damage. Note, too, that the heather colors contain polyester. I got my shirt in dark heather because it contains the highest percentage of polyester of all the color options, meaning I'm getting what's likely the best value in terms of sweat-wicking performance and longevity. With that said, the high-quality cotton makeup of the other colors is still comparable and durable enough for intense workouts.

Manufacturer Reviews

5 out of 5 stars

This gym shirt style is among the most reviewed items featured on It has over 2,200 reviews on the manufacturer's webpage, with an average rating of 5 out of 5. The positives were generally about the lightweight and soft feel. Most thought that the sizing was accurate, though I came across a couple of reviewers who felt it was a touch small. The negative comment I saw the most was that the shirt's too thin. I liked this aspect, but I'm not everybody. The overwhelming majority of reviewers were impressed by the quality of the shirt and print for the price.
