Try On Report: Candle Light Tank, Stand Strong Tank and Power Y

by Cristina

My day started well. It started like this..

Christmas at Starbucks

And then a product notification for new tanks. Hmmm, promising start to the day.

Candlelight TankCandlelight TankAlternate View

  • Strappy, open back tank designed for yin and hatha class
  • Made with certified organic cotton fibre and LYCRA® fibre blend that provides natural softness, breathability and stretch for shape retention
  • Moderate support and coverage
  • Body hugging fit and long length
  • Straps cross in the back for full range of movement
  • Mesh bra construction with built-in pockets for removable cups
  • Preshrunk

And then my toddler discovered how to unbuckle herself from the stroller and escape making trying on clothes almost impossible.

The Candlelight Tank (size 8). I liked it because it was super soft. Much softer then the Organic Cotton of the Gathered Racerbacks or any other Organic Cotton Lycra blend I’ve felt from Lulu. Very, very soft tank is what I’m saying. I’m undecided if I like this tank enough to buy though. The Ombre stripe on the side of the light grey one (dark grey one is all solid) was interesting but maybe not so flattering. The straps in the back were pretty and very similar to the Free to be Bra. Slightly complicated getting this on, but then again I was getting flustered by a loose toddler opening dressing room doors. Mesh bra – I like just wearing my own bra so this was a slight turn off. that being said, with the pretty back detailing you need the built in bra. The fit was a lot like the Power Y but slightly more forgiving around the torso.

The Stand Strong Tank (size 8). I like this tank except for the fact that it’s short and not as a-line as other tanks. I like my tanks to be nice and long and this one felt much shorter then I like. It’s quite a comfortable with supportive straps and simple yet flattering design. I think the back seam detailing may bug you a bit if you’re on your back doing mat work but it’s not irritating at all just moving around upright. This one is Haze but they also had Black, Wish and Very Violet.

Power Y (size 8). Just to see if I liked the color on and I do. a lot. I wish the Static Wish CRB was more like this Static Wish Power Y as I find the CRB’s much more versatile to wear and there cheaper. I don’t think I would wear a Power Y all that often as I have a Fox one that I don’t wear very often. I tried on the Very Violet CRB on as well and I love that color on me. It’s fantastic. So that may be something I snatch up on upload on Thursday as it’s just easier for me to online shop now. as you can see from the photo above.
