This top is snug enough to stay in place but not skin-tight. The light, breathable material wicks away moisture, dries easily, and launders well, according to reviews. Wearers like how it moves with the body.

Although it's really meant for more cardiovascular activity, the Champion Double Dry women's training tank works for yoga as well, earning kudos in reviews for flat seams that don't chafe and for the moisture-wicking properties of the "mock-mesh" fabric. Champion tank top reviews describe the polyester material as soft and comfortable, with a suppleness that promotes freedom of movement.

Consumers look for yoga tops that are long enough to cover the midriff even in a pose where the arms are raised and cut close enough that the hem won't flip or ride up during a downward-facing dog or a headstand. Many also might prefer that the neckline be a bit on the higher side to avoid inadvertent exposure in inverted poses. The Champion Double Dry training tank comes through on all these counts. Consumers posting Champion tank top reviews on Amazon report that the tank provides plenty of coverage -- almost too much, in the opinion of one reviewer who finds the shape somewhat "macho." The fit is snug and the length keeps wearers from exposing any skin. A few Champion tank top reviews mention that the armholes are a little on the tight side, causing chafing on a run, but other reviewers find them roomy and most seem happy with the fit in general.

The Champion Double Dry training tank is made of polyester that is mesh on the outside and smooth on the inside. Some reviewers note that the lighter colors are somewhat sheer and recommend wearing a substantial sports bra underneath or opting for a darker color. Amazon carries seven different color options at several different prices, with black being the cheapest -- another argument for choosing a dark color. The moisture-wicking material keeps wearers cool and sweat-free while they're working out. One reviewer asserts that it dries so quickly she can wear the tank directly out of the washing machine. Other consumers appreciate that the fabric is durable enough to keep its shape even after many washings.
