Walmart’s $12 SHIRT has reportedly gone viral, with many shoppers claiming it has become a women’s new wardrobe staple.
Some fashion bloggers, who would normally reach out to other brands, said they were glad they didn’t part with the item.
The scene was reportedly on the rise last summer when influencer and entrepreneur Courtney Glau advocated “The Walmart T” on her Instagram and website.
The shirt was made by the Free Assembly brand and Grow created an entire page dedicated to the product through a simple blog on why viewers should choose Walmart’s simple t-shirt.
“Walmart T’s are everything I want in a white t-shirt,” she wrote.
“Soft, thin and totally oversized (I’m up to a L).”
The style expert continued, “The best thing about her is that it looks like a more expensive product, but it’s actually $7.”
T-shirts are currently priced at $12 online at Walmart. Not sure when it went up.
Grow went on to say that it’s a great “uniform basic” that fits in anyone’s closet and pairs very well with other items.
Glow noted that she chose to wear it with underwear, as in the photo she posted on her blog.
Otherwise, she opted to pair a Walmart T with Everlane barrel pants, baggy jeans, or high-waisted options.
According to Grow, the shirt also goes well with flats and sandals.
Jacey Duprie, CEO and founder of lifestyle and fashion brand Damsel in Dior, also endorsed The Walmart T in October.
In a blog post, Duprie explained that he was “certainly glad” that Grow was the first to notice the item and didn’t miss it.
“I’m so happy that I opened my eyes [to] “The amazing quality of free assembly at Walmart,” Dupri wrote.
“Apparently, I lived under a rock.”
She praised the Walmart T’s ability to pair well with other styles and sizes.
“It’s super soft, versatile, and feels like every size fits differently,” Duprie continued.
The fashion icon concluded by noting that she only has two colors for her shirt: “Claw” and “Heather Carbon.”
Back when Duprie and Grow were blogging about The Walmart T, color options were the only thing some customers were missing.
Currently, there are a total of 23 different color options for those looking for items on Walmart’s website.
However, there is still no “white” option.
During Grow’s first Instagram post about the product on July 31, 2022, some people commented that the item was temporarily out of stock.
“If it’s not out of stock every time I go buy it, I might get a shot someday,” one user pointed out.
Another poster wrote, “I can’t find it anywhere on the Canadian site and I want it so badly.”
Of course, Walmart T’s aren’t the only all-purpose clothing that suffers from popularity.
As The US Sun previously reported, Aldi’s famous “glitter dress,” which was priced at just $13, sold out quickly.
Unfortunately, it’s only available for a limited time during the holidays and we probably won’t be back.

The US Sun also ran a story about a woman who “wrongly” wore a Kim Kardashian SKIMS dress, but many told her it was better to wear it that way.
