To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These are my go-to shirts for the gym. I do jiu jitsu and I wear these under my gi. They’re super stretchy, which makes it easy to workout in. On top of that, they’re fabulous at wicking away sweat…because let’s face it, no one likes that clammy feeling! I’m 120 pounds, a 34B and got a small. Fits just as expected. I want to say that they’re comparable to the ones that I used to get from Lululemon but its been a while since I’ve worn those so…
Keep in mind however that despite the name they’re not really “compression shirts.” They might be skin tight but they won’t provide you with that compressive support if that’s what you’re after. For my purposes, though they are great. Lengthwise they go down to my hips, & don’t ride up even when I move though so I like it. When I’m done wearing them, I put them in the washer with the rest of my gym clothes. I’ve washed them a few times with Active Detergent now and so far they still look as good as new. I think the key is not to put them in the dryer. I always line dry.
The one, major down side & reason for the four star: lack of consistency. I ordered a 3 pack, when I opened it I grabbed the grey one. It was thin, see through, and felt really cheap. I was disappointed & thought they were all going to be like that. Turns out, the white and black are thicker and stretchy, like I imagined! Big quality difference. Feels like a different manufacturer!
Will they be warm enough for winter? I’m not sure. What I’ll probably end up doing is layering a shirt on top or something. It’s lightweight and theres great ventilation so I don’t think that will be a problem.
Pros: Comfortable. Good fit. Washes easily. Moisture-wicking. Flattering look. Breathable.
Cons: Sizing can be tricky. Inconsistent quality between same product. Doesn’t provide compression.
I love these! Thin wicking material. Very stretchy! So much higher quality than expected. I’m a 34C, 28 inch waist, 36 inch hips, size S/4, 5’3, 130#, curvy-athletic. The small fits perfectly & the tag says US size small. If I weighed even 20 pounds more or was up to a D cup I’d still get a small bc they’re not really compression - they’re just skin tight and clingy. Move with you. Perfect for hot yoga without a bra. Very very similar to the 90 degree brand but run slightly smaller perhaps or similar. Probably more similar. These are an amazing bargain and I may even buy more since I do 2 yoga classes a day & the price is so good. Length is down to my hips. Doesn’t ride up. If you’re really tall like over 5’7 and love long tanks and weigh more than 150 and aren’t looking for compression then a M instead of a S may be better for you. But seriously these are soooo stretchy and not see through and not compression that I think they actually run big for their claim as a compression top.
bought to wear for the gym. after a little sweating the tank was extremely uncomfortable, the fabric is not breathable at all. i think the best choice for these tanks is lounging or non-athletic activities. On sizing, i got the small and they were loose. I probably could have done the X-Small if it were to be a compression tank...as it was, there was no compression to review. :/
They're great for just a tank top. But they're supposed to be compression and sure I guess they would be if they weren't cut so large for a size small. I dont even think an xs(if they made it) would be compression for me. Waist 24-26, midsection 28-30 depending, hips 34-36. The only way these were somewhat snug for me was if I wore a layer underneath. Very volumous. I tried it on after the eating holiday and still not fitting (add an extra inch or 2 to the highest number in the range I fluctuate in) these are not size small or cut for compression. I should have known by the price tag.
I bought these for working out and to see how they would be to use as an undershirt as well. I bought the small because I wanted them to fit snuggly under other clothes. I am 130 pounds, athletic build and a full C cup bra size. They fit me snuggly and at this time, I probably would not wear them in public without something over them as I have a little weight to lose around the bra line in the back and it shows through. The medium might be better for me to wear without something over it, but I plan to keep these for working out and for undershirts. I have washed them a few times now and they have not gotten fuzzies nor have they lost their color or shape from the wash. I hang them to dry. They are a good value for the price. And as many others have written, they are not compression garments.
I really like these racerback tanks. I ordered the three pack of black, gray and white. I agree with other reviewers they run a bit large and thankfully I paid attention to this. I am 5'7 and 135 pounds, usually wear a medium but sized down to a small and am glad I did. Fits perfectly! Some reviewers complain that these tanks are not really compression - I disagree with that. They are LIGHT compression - nothing like Spanx mind you - but who wants that for everyday activities and workouts. I find that they do light shaping and compression. Very comfortable to wear! Will likely purchase additional colors.
I do not work out, so I can't speak to how these hold up at the gym. I'm a college student and was looking for some basic tanks to wear with leggings to class (that weren't cropped) and these are perfect. They're very comfortable and a good length. I'm 5'9 and 130lbs and got a size small. They fit great, not too tight but not too loose, and not too short but not too long. I recommend!
I liked these. They fit well, nice and snug I like to wear them under my work shirts to keep myself looking neat. These were perfect for that. They do have an athletic look to them. You could certainly work out in them too
I'm 5'4, ~130 pounds, usually wear a 7 in pants and a small in shirts, and these were perfect for my purposes. They definitely aren't "compression" tanks, and the white one is definitely see through without a sports bra, but really what I wanted was a tank top I could wear over a sports bra, tight enough that it wouldn't make me look like a rectangle, but not too tight that I couldn't breathe comfortably. They met all those marks, so as far as I'm concerned, they're great.
