I ordered the tanks in barkberry and white:
I ordered the tanks in size 4. I was hoping for a slouchy fit like on the model. But it's actually more fitted, and I think I'd like them better if they were a size 6. I also didn't realize that they are made of luxtreme (I don't read descriptions very carefully), which seems like the wrong fabric for this style of tank. I think it would have been better if they were made with something like the lightweight luon used in the 105 F Singlets. I'm not a huge fan of the luxtreme material for tops. It's too slippery and clingy or something. I can't quite put my finger on it. But this tank just doesn't have the same feel that I was hoping for.
I also think the style with all the mesh and cut outs is almost trying too hard. I'm also not a big fan of the mesh used in the tank. It feels a little cheap. And the tank is not cheap, at $64.
Anyway, here's the bark berry on me in size 4. As you can see, it is not skin tight but it is not the same slouchy fit as the model. The color is nice and earthy. It's like a reddish taupe.
So when I was looking at the online photos, I thought the raspberry glow stripe on the back was built into the mesh. But it's actually only attached on the top and bottom. The rest of it is not attached. It's kind of weird.
And of course it means the line will not always lie straight. Not a big deal I guess. I don't think this line has any purpose other than decorative. It's not reflective - would have been cooler if it had a reflective stripe down the middle! But that's too much like Splits59.
The white one fits the same. I do like that white can show different bras under it. I think I might try this one in a size 6 in the store if they have them.
I got this top in size 4 as well. I think the fit is good so I wouldn't size up or down.
The stitchings around the mesh cutout areas really bother me. How sloppy looking:
All the lines from the side view looks rather messy as well:
I like the back:
Anyway, I am a little surprised by the raving reviews online regarding these items. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.
