I prefer to be shaped like a woman (and far too woman-shaped on the bottom to even consider anything in the men's section). While it's true that a lot of men's tops are "unisex," that usually means that the body of the shirt is stick straight, too long, and the shoulder seams are somewhere near my elbows. Men's/unisex tops just make me look schlumpy.

I'm not even sure what the bolded means. "Typical ladies"?

I like men's jeans because I am only "curvy" on top. Bad waist to hip ratio, so women's jeans are too tight in the waist. I also have broad shoulders so women's tops don't fit me either. Nothing with buttons...

I hate clothes!

I am six feet tall. I've long shopped in the men's department at times, sometimes for jeans, but also to get sweaters and other long-sleeved tops that have long-enough sleeves and come down longer than my waist.

There aren't any stores for tall women, so I usually shop online, but once in a while you want something right away, and the men's section may have it

I wear my husband's undershirts for night shirts when I am traveling.

That's nothing new. Most of my life I've shopped in men's departments for specific things and always will. Including long enough shirt, sweater, and jacket sleeves, broad enough shoulders, long pant inseams. I also find I detest many "fashion" colors and patterns in women's clothes. Too garish, too bright.

Funny you should say this, OP. I've never before shopped in the men's dept for clothing for myself, but I did yesterday.

I want workout clothes to go to the gym that aren't threadbare and clingy. I really just wanted a standard thick nice all cotton t-shirt to go over exercise/yoga capris that's long enough to be modest.

I can't find that in the women's departments of Academy and Target. As it is, in those stores, I'm buying an extra large so it's not just skin tight like a bathing suit, although I normally wear a small to medium.

This is me, too! But I also have short legs, so I always have to alter jeans. I learned to sew as a teenager, so I could have stuff that fit properly.

If I can find a women's shirt to fit my shoulders, it has so many Xs in the size that the midsection part looks like a maternity top. And my tops are a size or two bigger than my pants. Women's clothes generally do not fit well or look great on me, so I stick to nondescript basics for the most part, from the men's section.
