i bought some cute tanks from express... they have lace on the straps... they'd be cute for layering.

When it comes to tank tops, I'm a cheapy. I figure even the priciest tank top can only last but so long...

For "wifebeaters" in the States -

- Target has some nice ones in their active department by Prospirit. $7.99. $5 bucks a pop if you get them during a sale.
- Old Navy has good ones in several different cuts. I get the "perfect fit" cut b/c it's a bit longer than the others. I think their generally around $10.
- I haven't tried JCrew's tissue tank, but I am a fan of their "Favorite" tank which run about $12.99 I believe. They're a bit thinner than the Old Navy/Target tanks.
- And finally, I agree with Luna. Express always has good staples & would be a good option for an embellished tank.

Additionally, I haven't owned them myself, but I hear good things about C&C California T's and tanks. There just a bit pricier. Good luck

thanks so much for ur help! i've tried c&c tanks before, but because i am kinda short, the lengths of their tank tops tend to be too long on me...which is a shame, because i do like their thinness....i will go check on old navy next time i go shopping...generally, i avoid old navy because i just get too overwhelmed by their racks and racks of clothing, but i am willing to give it a try!

I had to post - I have fallen in love with Old Navy's Layering Camis:



I probably have about 10 now. They are long, and of thin material, and so cheap that you can afford to stock up. As far as I'm concerned, camis like this are the cheapest of luxuries.

I also wear Perfect fit tanks from old navy.. I layer them all the time... they're the perfect thing to wear with a printed circle skirt in the summer.

Plus.. they're not cheaply made.. I still have some that I bought 3 years ago... and I wear them a lot.. even in the winter (under stuff)

^ Who would've guessed that Old Navy would make such great essential pieces?

I haven't tried those layering camis... do they have built in shelf bras? Or are they just tanks?

They're just tanks... a soft, thinner material. They're the "tiny fit" style, so extra long and body-hugging. 2/$10 now. I wear them under everything.

I guess what I posted isn't exactly a traditional tank top. But since the thread is about that, I stick to J Crew's favorite tank tops. They're longer, as well.

they're long, which is a HUGE plus for me, and soft, come in a bunch of hues and make good layering tanks...i live in 'em..

Agreed. The longer length is super important to me, as well.

James Perse are good- they come pretty long and theres a big selection of sizes
but Hanes are a hell of a lot cheaper and still good. Also, Jockey makes some simple, nice wifebeaters.
