Fitness Tanks from Etsy!

I ordered some custom fitness tanks from Etsy, because I don't have enough workout tanks lol.  Well, I actually don't really wear tanks with graphics or writing on them.  I don't dislike them per se, but I normally don't like anything enough to want to have them on my shirts.  The ones I got caught my eye though, especially this one because it's so true!

The store I ordered from is called TheFitnessTeeCo, and this is the link for this 0 People Like Burpees tank.  All the tanks are made to order.  You choose your own tank and ink colors.  It's only $18!

I actually like the black tank with pink ink, as pictured in their sample photo.  But I mixed up the option for tank color and the option for ink color on the order page.  So I ended up getting a pink tank with black writing!  No Likie!!  Good thing they exchanged it out for me for only $4 more or something because I would not have had use for the pink tank (it's kind of a dull pink, in my opinion).  This is what I should have done, if I wanted a black tank with pink ink:

I don't know about you, but I find this a little confusing.  In my defense, the way I saw it was that the first option has the size, then ends with the word "Tank".  So I assumed it meant the tank size and color.  Apparently it refers to the tank size and the ink color.  Whatever.  It's just confusing to name it "ink tank".  Is that the ink or the tank?!  If I had scrolled through all the pictures though, I would have seen that the last picture shows the different tank colors.  So I could have figured out that the tank color was on the second drop down.  But, I didn't.  What can I say.  I was slightly annoyed by this.  

So anyway, to keep it simple, I actually just exchanged for a heather white tank with black ink.  Though after I put in my exchange, I realized I should have done blue tank with white ink!  That would be just like the facebook colors!  Oh well......... maybe that means I need another one.  =P

So I went with size S, and it is the loose fit that I like.  The tank is Next Level Apparel brand Tri Blend racerback, which is made of a blend of polyester, cotton and rayon.  I think a lot of people make custom shirts with this Next Level brand.  The material feels pretty nice and soft actually.  The length is also on the long side, as you can see on me.  I read the reviews that a lot of people thought it ran small though.  I don't think that's the case, personally.  But I can kind of see why people would say that - the material is not as stretchy as some other workout tank materials.  I'm happy with my size S.

I also got the Kettlebell Skull tank from the same seller, since I use kettlebells so much!  

I meant to get it in white tank with black ink but since I ordered both tanks at the same time, it got reversed too.  So I ended up getting a black tank with white ink.  I figured... whatever, just keep it.  I really have no issues with this color combo.  Got the tank in the same size.

A lot of reviews for this seller said that they shipped super fast.  I actually didn't find that to be the case the first round.  It took them a week to put it in the mail, and another week to arrive (they ship first class mail from Michigan).  I didn't really care, but if you are in a hurry then two weeks is a bit slow.  I understand they have to make the tanks after receiving each order, but I didn't think that should take an entire week.  When I exchanged the Burpee tank, they shipped out the replacement within 2 or 3 days of ordering though.  So maybe it just depends.  And if you live closer to Michigan, I'm sure you'd get it faster too.  

Lastly, I got a Happy Place tank from another seller called everfitte (link is for the size S... you'll have to do a search in their store for this tank in different sizes).  It's on super sale for only $10!  The saying is so true for me too!  Lol.  Though instead of Starbucks, nowadays I just go to 3rd wave hipster coffee places and get things like bulletproof coffee.  I've been hooked on it for quite a while now.   Coffee + Grass Fed Butter + Coconut Oil = Winning Combo.  Who would have thought?!

But, I still like Starbucks as a company.  So I'll represent them lol.  This tank is American Apparel, and I got it in size S too.  It is shorter than the Next Level tanks, and maybe slightly tighter.  I think I could have done size M in it as well.  But I'm happy with it the way it is!

This seller is located in Northern California so I got the tank like the day after they shipped.  It took them a week to send it out though, and I don't think it's a made to order tank since you can't choose different colors.  But, no biggie!

So, I didn't mean for this to turn into such a long post!  Lol.  I've had my Etsy account for like 5 years now but these were my very first purchases from Etsy.  I think they worked out pretty well!  I will have to see how these tanks perform and how well they hold up.


  1. The tanks are cute! But... I have to ask... is bulletproof coffee really good?? It sounds absolutely disgusting to me. I am not trying to be insulting, I am genuinely curious. I keep hearing about it but I'm not sure if I can stomach trying it. What do you think??

    1. Haha... it does sound gross! I was intrigued to try it, and I actually think it tastes good! It's very creamy tasting, and if you have coconut oil in it, you get that coconut flavor too which is great. I have gotten a few friends to try it and so far it ranges from "not bad" to "best coffee I've ever had". But no one has said it doesn't taste good yet! Give it a try! You can actually just make some coffee at home, put some butter in it and blend it together until it's a little frothy. I think adding a little bit of sugar or sweetener makes it taste better too. If you are not a fan, no big loss right? Let me know what you think! =)

    2. Thank you! You're giving me the courage to try, lol! I will keep you posted ;)
