Aquamarine Dance Strap Tank

Ok, so I got my aquamarine Dance Strap tank in size 4 today, and I think I definitely like it better than the 6. The chest is smaller and lower cut for sure, but the body is perfect.  I find the size 6 too long and loose/poofy for me, especially when I move around air gets under the tank and it looks way poofier for a few moments before it settles back down.  If the material was lullure instead of luxtreme, I don't think it would be an issue.  Here's a side by side comparison of the 2 different sizes on me.  I cinched in the bottom on both, which is how I normally wear this tank.  Had to tuck under the size 6 more than 4 since it's longer.



Though size 6 has more boob coverage, for some reason I think it looks a little weird.  Kind of like I'm wearing a bra that is a size too big for me.  Size 4 definitely gives more cleavage.

I love the color of this tank, but I can't help but think how even more beautiful it would look in lullure!  Lullure is slicker and has a subtle sheen to it, which I think is a great plus for this tank style.  Also the Lulu logo on the old Dance Strap tanks are velvet and in the same color as the rest of the tank, instead of the regular silver reflective one.  So I think the older style is more street-wear-friendly.  Otherwise there's not too much difference between this one and the older ones.

  2. I like the 4 better on you too. Do you mind me asking what size you ordered in the Power Y? I ordered a Discover Power Y online last week and I am wondering if I should have ordered a 6 instead of a 4. I think we're pretty similarly build. Sorry if that's a personal thing to ask!

    1. I got a size 6 in the Power Y. I always size up in that tank, I think size 4 bra band feels too tight for some reason.

  3. Me too I definitely prefer the size 4. I will buy the Wunder Under Crop Heathered Ultra Violet to change a little, what do you think? you never wear crop color, why?

    1. I don't know, I think because I don't want to venture too much into the 80s. And it's easier to match with dark colored bottoms. But I do think the violet one is pretty though. I was sort of toying with the idea of getting one. But I think I rather get something darker first, like indigo, or some kind of dark purple would be nice...

  4. soo cute! I bought the black dance strap and love it. thinking of getting the aquamarine while all sizes are still available but not sure how the color will look on me... leading to my question, what ethnicity are you? you make the color look good.. wondering whether you are cool or warm toned.. weird question! sorry!

    1. Haha I think the lighting at my place plays a role on how colors/ my skin tone looks because they have a warm golden undertone. I'm actually rather pale right now. Well, not completely since I tend to retain my tan pretty well throughout the year so I don't ever get ghostly white. I think the colors that don't work paparticularly well on me are like oranges and yellows. I usually like blues, greens and purples, ranging to reds on me best, though that is a broad spectrum. Not sure how to answer the warm/cool question, but I usually buy foundations in fair shades with pink undertone.

  5. I think the 6 looks better, personally, and I'm not trying to come across as sounding rude, but it just looks like it fits so much better in the bust.

  6. No question -- the 4 definitely -- the 6 looks to billowy and long -- the color looks great on you!!

    You are rocking that power y in the discover stripe -- makes me want to order one!!
