The customized fit allows for freedom and versatility when choosing your bottoms. It also can be worn to any sweaty class. Essence Vital Tie Back Tank The tie back can be adjusted to make it a bit looser or tighter for comfort. This customized fit is my favorite thing about this shirt. You can wear it untied if you want (although I wouldn’t recommend that during a flow if you don’t want it to fly up over your head!). There’s also a longer hemline for more coverage.
In some reviews, our shorter gals say that it is too long. The length allows for more coverage, but it depends on what your preference is!
This is a perfect top for our yogis that are also involved in other sweaty classes like spin or barre. It can be paired with any bottom, and is unique for yogis who want to stand out! Size/types: xxs-xl
The Cool Racerback - Great for our sweat junkies that don’t mind a tight fit. Lululemon designed this top to hug the body close so you don’t feel restricted by a top that shifts when you move. This top moves with you. They have developed a lightweight fabric called Luon that is sweat wicking so you stay dry as possible during your sweatiest flows. The 4-way stretch and tight fit allows the tank to flow with your body as you flow.
The tighter fit isn’t for every yogi
The tank top is good for every purpose, but was strategically designed to stay in place as you move through your flow and other sweaty activities. The fabric is soft and fits like a second skin. Sizes: 0-14
SYROKAN Women's Active Racerback Athletic Yoga Tank Top - Great for any yogi who wants coverage over the chest and a looser fit around the stomach area. This tank is extremely lightweight, ventilated in the back, and sweat-wicking. The fitted waistband ensures your tank does not move during your flows or everyday exercise. The tight waistband is the biggest pro here. It will not slide up during your multiple downward dogs in a class, and it is a bit looser in the chest and stomach area- perfect for layering your favorite sports bra underneath.
This tank tends to run big! So make sure to order a size down if you are in between sizes.
This tank is not only extremely affordable, stylish, and very light weight. It’s perfect for the simple yogi on a budget. Sizes: xs-xl
