Perfect Racerback Tank

Perfect Racerback Tank is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and stylish It's a little more sheer than some people would like, but that would be my only complaint. It's soft and comfortable. It fits well and I plan to buy other colors as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing tank Picked up a gray one in the store and couldn't believe how lightweight it was. Like, this might be the single lightest piece of clothing I've ever owned. It's seriously comfortable and looks fabulous, too. I wore it under a chambray shirt once, then decided to buy more colors online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great comfortable go to tank top I tried this on in my local store on a whim. Was I ever happy. So comfortable and flattering. The neckline is not as low as shown on the model. The material is very soft. I usually wear an XS and while the XS fit, it felt a little snug, especially through the chest and I am an A cup. I went up to a Small and the tank was still fitted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very soft but still durable I was concerned that these would be too flimsy when I ordered them, but they're not at all and still SO soft. Love them. Good to wear both underneath layers or on their own. For a more relaxed fit I would order up a size, though. I am 110 lb, 5'4" and the S fits pretty snugly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little stretchy, but very wearable After the second wear, the straps had stretched out to show a little more cleavage than I was willing to show. It went back to its original size after washing. Still a great tank, and I will be ordering it in a few more colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Tank Top As other reviewers have said, this tank does tend to shrink, then stretch upon wearing. For me (110lbs, 5'2, small bust, xs) I sort of like the tendency of the tank to do this. After washing, the hem of the xs hits just above my hip, doesn't cover my bum, and doesn't show my midriff. After a few hours of wear, it loosens slightly, but still doesn't sag down to far. Other tanks I've bought in a similar style from other stores are often too loose and then upon washing get even looser. The feel of the fabric is very nice and durable for how thin it is. I have a green one that I only ever wear to yoga and its been worn and washed excessively and there are still no holes or loss of integrity in the fabric (not that I would recommend these tanks for working out in). I just bought it in white, the fabric of which feels lighter than the brighter colors. Hopefully, it remains as durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy but runs small This is a great everyday tank for summer or even spring. I loved it so much I ended up ordering the pink as well. I got the black in small, but it ran small so I returned it for a medium. I'm 5'5" and 125lbs, and the small was tight under the arms. I'd order a size up if you want a loose, casual fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable but see through I love the feel of this tank top but was disappointed to find that it is see through. Now I need to wear another layer underneath which is not idea for a tank top!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inconsistent sizing I bought the black one in store and loved it, so I ordered the same size in gray - its almost the same except its a couple inches longer! kind of a bummer but comfy nonetheless
