I was really pleasantly surprised by the quality and fit of this shirt! It’s soft yet strong and has the perfect stretch to it. It also dries quickly. The back cut is also flattering and nice when worn with a cute strappy sports bra!
was really pleasantly surprised by the quality and fit of this shirt! I wasn’t sure what the material would be like from the photos, but it’s soft yet strong, and has the perfect stretch to it. It also dries quickly.
I ordered a small and a medium to see which would fit better (I’m 5’7”, 138lbs, with a fairly wide rib cage and shoulders and cup size C-D depending on the bra size).
Both sizes actually fit pretty well, in different ways. The built-in-bra in the small is way more supportive because it’s tighter, but it’s not constrictive. It’s actually supportive enough for me to wear around without a bra, which was a nice surprise! I could even workout this way, if it was yoga or weight lifting. I would need a sports bra underneath to run or do high impact, though.
The built in bra is also flattering, lifting in a nice way. I included photos both with and without a sports bra beneath.
The medium was a bit longer and looser around the midsection and I did like that, and it was a little more comfy for hanging out in because of the slightly looser built in bra. I almost kept both just to have the medium to wear around the house on weekend mornings, but ultimately decided i was getting this shirt as a workout and yoga top and went with the size small.

Hits at the perfect length, cropped but not too short with just the right amount of support! Will be purchasing in other colors for sure!
I hope this helps you make your decision. This is a great top; I love that I don’t have to wear a bra. I wish I could give it 4.5 stars. I ordered the rose, lavender, and black. The material on the tank is thicker than most; it's smooth and it stretches. It has good coverage at the bust with 3 layers at the bra pockets and two bra pads. I like the fact that they are not overly padded, just enough coverage and shape. For those concerned about what size to order... I ordered a size 1X and it's slightly loose. I usually wear sizes 14-16 or an XL. Here's my measurements, 41-35-45 and height 5'6" I wear my clothes slightly looser (rather than tighter); that why I ordered the 1X. The fit is looser; however, the band below the bust is tight and I am 34 inches just below my bust. The top will fit a small-sized 1X but the band will be tight. I hope this review was helpful.
