Today's Shopping Trip

I went to exchange my Pow Pink Racing CRB for the Pop Orange Swiftly SL tank and got to try on some of the latest things. This is the Mirage print Daily Tank, made of Vitasea. The  material in the Vitasea Daily tanks is really thin and I don't care for the long straps so this stayed at the store. I'm not sure whether I like this print or not.  The colors in the print are Deep Indigo, Pow, and Pop Orange. If I get a Mirage Print tank it will be in luon or another technical fabric.

On the other hand, I did like the Heathered Deep Indigo Daily Tank a lot. This one is also made of Vitasea (also thin but since it's dark not as see through as the white-based Mirage tank). For some reason the straps on this were shorter/tank ran smaller than the Mirage version. The color is pretty in real life. It looked very similar to my Heathered Deep Navy Flashback Pullover.  If there is an Every Yogi tee in this color I think I will get it.


This is a comparison photo of Pop Orange to Dazzling with a Flash Swiftly headband laid on top.

I also tried on the new Scoop Me Up Tank. I think it shows a little bit more cleavage than the Scoop Neck but not much. The back is very comfortable and pretty. It's fairly high cut in the armpit area, I think a bit higher than the Scoop Neck. I don't really care for the gathers at the bust, especially since I am large-busted. I tried on the white and silver. I think the support is definitely less than the Scoop Neck, probably more like a Power Y. I could wear this for a low impact workout like weight lifting, bar class, or yoga. It's a cute tank and if it comes in a good color combination I might be tempted to get it.

I also got to try on the Run: For Your Money tank. The bra is very snug but the straps are stretchy so when I hopped up and down so did my boobs. I really like my girls locked down when I run. As many people have noted, the bottom is a big snug at the hips if you are on the curvy side. I also hate the look of the pocket in the front.I think that ruins the whole tank. For some reason it is cone-shaped at the bottom. I like that it's different looking and super lightweight but since I need more support for running I won't be getting this tank.

I also got to try on the Presta Shirket which fit a roomy TTS and wasn't tight in the arms, for a change. Since I don't bike I don't need this jacket but I liked it.

FYI, if you live in Orange County, the Fashion Island store got in the Pow Pink Wunder Unders today.

The scoop me up tank looks pretty, but I fear it will be too revealing with my large chest. Can't wait to try it on.

Can you talk more about the bra part of the Run for your money tank..im tempted to order it..but I have a large chest (36dd) and I'm not sure the 10 is going to be fit properly.

Can anyone go into more detail on the bra/support/is it revealing? More deets haha! Thanks <3

So would u call pop orange more of a peach than orange?

Such a strange pattern. Wonder how much variation there will be one garment to the next (colour distribution). Not loving it online, maybe better in person.

I'm technically a 34DD. I bought the Run For Your Money tank yesterday and I would not feel comfortable wearing only the tank for running. If I run I need to be in a ta-ta tamer and a shirt with a built-in bra. I intend to use the Run For Your Money tank for hot yoga only. I'm usually an 8 in tanks but in this one I bought a 6.

LLA, how does the pow pink WU compare to the paris pink? Do they look alike or is one more neon than the other? Thanks!

What is going on with all these prints? This one looks like they started printing the pattern on the tank and pulled it out of the printer too early and the print smeared. Or it's a hem print that's bleeding. And the high noon dot print is feathered so that it looks like the dye is bleeding. Putting out this type of print after having so many issues with due bleeding just seems silly to me.

@ anon 6:08 pm - I'm a 36DD and the support is not enough for me. I need the straps to have less give. I wear a Ta Ta Tamer when I run. I tried on the the 10. The bra part mashed me down enough (kind of like old All Sport bra) but the straps were just too stretchy.

@ anon 6:27 p m- a bright peach or a pastel neon orange.

@ anon 7:30 pm - Jeez. I'll need to dig up a photo of pow and paris together. I think Paris is brighter but I'm going off memory.

@ anon 7:30 pm - Just posted a comparison photo for you. I was wrong, Pow is lighter and Paris is darker.

Thanks Tifferoo, for the color heads up of the Scoop Me Up tank (in a previous post).
The Scoop Me Up comes in Deep Indigo? Yumm! I love all the colors mentioned: Ray and Pow, Deep Indigo and the White/Silver :) I am an A/AA cup, so I think this tank will work for me. Looks like I'll be spending lots, if I'm getting one in each color!

is the scoop me up full LUON like the scoop tank?

I disagree. I am also a 34DD and I find the bra very supportive. I do use the cups. This is one of my new favorites, but beware if you're curvy, it just won't work. Love the fit and feel. Have ran in it several time and will use for hot yoga. Hope this helps!!
