I thought that this was a thing that just happened in Tracyland, but apparently not! I googled "holes in my shirts" just for shits and giggles and low and behold there are boatloads of people out there trying to come up with a reason why this is happening! And hey, proof that I'm not crazy! Ok, not crazy about that.
It apparently is common for women's shirts (mostly) and happens mostly with thinner t-shirt or stretch-type materials.
There are many thoughts as to the cause of these holes - here are a few:
- Seatbelt rubbing on shirts
- Shirts rubbing on belts (the kind that hold up your pants)
- Shirts rubbing on brass buttons or edges of jeans - maybe even zipper pulls
- Rubbing against granite counter tops
**Rubbing on belt - again, a possibility...but my hubby's been wearing a belt longer than I have and he has no issues. I think his shirts are made from thicker he-man materials so that may be it.
**Edge of jeans? Well this one may be a problem but I get this even when I wear my work shirts with skirts or pants with regular buttons and still get holes. So...I don't think so. Maybe?
**Granite counter tops. Well, we have them and I do cook and do dishes in my kitchen - as some do - but I just don't think that smooth surface would create this problem.
Frankly I have no idea what the cause of it is - I just want it to stop. lol I can't afford to constantly be buying shirts.
So - does this happen to you?
Here are a couple of examples - these are NOT MY SHIRTS. I just took these off the web because they were similar to my issues.
