New Tops:So, it's that time of year again: to start thinking about finding new running tops. In the winter, I just wear lots of ugly layers and typically a fleece jacket (I KNOW! I'm weird). But in the spring/summer, I always want lightweight, non-clingy, cute tanks.
My number one requirement for such tanks is for them to be TANKS only. No shelf-bras (how many people can actually get away with having just a flimsy shelf-bra holding their girls in?? I say: NOT MANY). Anyway, these are on my radar right now:
First Base Tank from Lululemon
Of course, the name is fucking ridiculous for a running tank. But, what do you expect from Lululemon? Anyway, it looks cool and lightweight, there's no shelf-bra, and I like that it doesn't look super clingy. (Although, the fucking model weighs about 40 pounds less than me and has no body fat for anything to cling to. Is it mean that I take some satisfaction that her little smug smile is totally lost because the position of the end of her ponytail makes it look like she's growing 2 inches of hair out of her armpit)?
The con: The price tag. It's from Lululemon, so it's like a bazillion dollars.
Run Swiftly Tech Racerback Tank from Lululemon
Again, no shelf-bra, light-weight... BUT, it does look like it has the potential to get clingy. I hate it when a top can't handle my 2 gallons of sweat from an August long run and it looks like I've just climbed out of a swimming pool wearing a skin tight swim suit.
So, if it's clinging to the hips of this size 0 model... then, I'm slightly worried about how it's going to cling to all my muffin top and fat rolls.
And lastly: The only one that I don't have to sell a kidney on the black market to be able to afford:
The Run On Tank by Athleta
This option is way more modest (more fabric, yet cheaper than lululemon. WTF?). Again, I'm a little worried about the clingy-ness potential. And, because I'm a floozy, I'd kinda rather have less fabric on the chest. I might give it a whirl anyway. (Mainly because I love that cobalt blue color. SUCH A GIRL).
Anyone else thinking about summer running tops? Got any suggestions?
