The Core Method Tank has got you covered when it comes to yoga, Pilates, bar classes, or any gym activity that you can think of. The Core Method Tank provides incredible coverage so that you can forget about what piece of skin may or may not be showing and focus on the task at hand, whatever it may be. This tank not only keeps your mid-section covered thanks to its’ added length, which hits about 4″ below the top of the hip, but also conceals as well. The ruching down the front and back not only gives the top a bit of style, it also hides the areas that you are working on so that you feel confident and able to concentrate on your exercises. I also found that the ruching helped to keep the top in place when doing poses such as downward dog, etc where more loose fitting tops may flip up over your head.
The top features a traditional tank design that allows you to wear the top with either a racer back or traditional bra style, depending on your preference. The scoop neck adds a bit of detailing to the top, while the wide straps allow you to conceal your traditional bra straps if so desired. I felt that the top ran a little big and would have preferred sizing down. The Lucy size guide can easily be found online to help you get the right fit. Unlike many tanks on the market, the Core Method Tank does not feature a built in bra for added coverage or support; I was very please with this as you do not always want a tight fitting tank to include this feature, as not all activities require additional support.
The Core Method Tank is available in a solid or in the print featured above, aptly named Shadow Flutter Print. I found the print to provide even more concealment as the print provides the eye with plenty look at. If a more plain top is your preference, the Core Method also comes in solid colors, such as Lipstick pink, Nightshade Heather (think grey), and Passiflora (periwinkle-ish). I tested out the Shadow Flutter Print and found that it paired nicely with black, brown, and even my olive green yoga pants.
This tank not only looks good, it also performs thanks to Lucy’s own “power fabric” which is a combination 87% supplex® nylon and 13% lycra® spandex in the body. The inset side fabric is an even lighter fabric to allow heat escape and combines a light weight jersey knit (94%) with 6% spandex. The weight of the fabric is nice an airy without looking overly athletic or sporty like many running tops that feature mesh paneling.
The Lucy Core Method Tank is also an easy top to transition from gym to real word without looking out of place. Simply pair the top with a wrap and you are set for running few errands after your favorite class. The top retails for $55 and is available from one of our partners’ below.
