Item of the week: Run Performance Tank

This tank was designed by Stella McCartney for her Adidas line. To find out more, click on the title "item of the week" for the link to her site. My fellow blogger and I tried it on last weekend at Equinox (72nd and 2nd ave) and this is how we felt:

1) We both agreed that the diagonal lines done on the side and seaming created a "slimmer figure" Always a plus in our book!
2)The length was fairly reasonable (not too short and not too long) and could work for shorter and a longer torso.
3) Built in bra, good for small bust sizes.
1) The stripe "cut out" that you see down the center front was made of a mesh material and a little too see-through for my taste.
2)The strap design in the back is cute, but if you were in the sun, you might end up with a funky tan line. Also the larger busted person, would have to wear a sportsbra underneath and we weren't sure how this design would go with that (seeing extra straps underneath the racer back)

Now here's where you tell us what you think? Would you buy this item if you saw it in a store? Why or why not??


  1. Hi Molly,

    Second attempt to post a comment. I checked out the Adidas website and there's also a top with the same fabric, but with a T-shirt style back (as opposed to straps).


  2. Thanks John!
    Which one do you think would look better on a lady?
