one all out tank, three body shapes

I find the All Out Tank to be a beautiful fit on many women, with many different shapes.  From ladies with curves, to straighter and athletic figures, the All Out Tank beautifully adorns an array of different body types.

Here are three different women with three different body types, all of whom love the All Out Tank. Between the three of us, we have used this tank for yoga, bootcamp, running, and dance, so don't worry about where to wear it, we found a lot of places where this tank performs well.

This top works well for pear shapes!

Having a smaller chest (A-, B+ cup on a good day) and waist, and an athletic badonk, this personally is one of my favourite tops.  This tank frames my figure, and adds a bit of oomph upstairs.  I also love how this top hugs my waist without suffocating it, and then bells out a bit at the bottom so to not cut me off at my hips.  My hips are smoothly elongated into my torso, and your eyes are not distracted by two different halves of my body. I am 5'7" and am wearing a size 8 in the All Out Tank, and this is my normal size in tops.

My friend Heather is 5'6" and a size 6 in both tops and bottoms, her figure is petite and fairly straight. The All Out Tank works really well for her in yoga. This tank enhances what she has, and she loves it for this very reason.

Last but not least, Anna is 5'9", she wears a 6 in tops and between a 6-8 in bottoms, and has an athletic and slender body type. Anna is almost a happy medium from my body type to Heather's. The All Out Tank is Anna's favourite for Barry's Bootcamp and yoga.

I love the bust and neckline of this top. I think it fits many different chests in different ways, but I find it to be very flattering.

The All Out Tank fits very similarly to the older Athletic Deep V tank, with the updated feature of a more relaxed bust-line that you can adjust to your comfort.

If you are looking for a flattering tank, that can perform in many different activities, the All Out Tank might be what you're looking for. To that I have too add, if you have a larger bust like a D and above, then I would try something like the Inner Strength Tank, Run: Sunrise Tank, or even a Cool Racerback.

Happy sweating and Namaste.

Why we made the All Out Tank:

  • Adjust your bust with this all sport tank
  • Made with luon on bust for max support and a luon light on the body for breathability
  • Bra constructed on the outside for customized fit and no abrasion on the inside
  • Mesh bra construction with built in pockets for removable cups
  • Mesh back allows for max breathability in those high sweat areas

I am 70 yrs old with a petite frame but have “muffin top” at my waist which I am working on vigorously at the gym. I need to update my workout wear. Suggestions??

I guess I am like Whitney, but several inches shorter and you do not look like an A+/B- which I am. This post did make me go try it and I bought one in Lagoon! I’m usually a 6-8 in the tops, but was surprised the size 6 was really unflattering on the chest so I sized up for the “girls” to have some room and it’s less fitted. But I’m excited for this cute new top!

Also agree with Nina (on the FB thread) – all three girls seem similar body type. A size 0-2 , 6-8, 10-12 ration would be better for “all type” post.

I don’t mean to be a stickler, but in the future when you demonstrate clothing on a “petite” sized model, it would be nice if that model was actually petite (5’6″ is not petite, petite is generally considered 5’4″ and under).

As a shorty myself, it is not so helpful to see something that is on an average sized woman.

They all look like they have similar body types. What about size 2′s and size 12′s??

i love the tank, but really? 5’6 is really considered petite? these three people have essentially the same body shape.

Comment by joyce — March 27, 2010 @ 11:17 pm

I agree with some of the comments. The title of the post refers to three different body types, but there really isn’t much variation. After reading it and looking at the girls sporting the shirt, I seriously doubt my full chest will work in this top, and I would be disappointed to discover so after reading this. It’s certainly very convincing, but please consider variety in body types when that is the goal of the post.

Hi agree with e. Lulu you should show us real different shapes. Some of us does work out everyday, but are still biggert. I love my Lulu size 10 & 12, show me you are proud of custumor like me !

Comment by Dee — March 28, 2010 @ 1:04 pm

I agree with the body type comments above – I myself am a pear shaped body type, which means my upper body is smaller than my lower – a size 6 upper and a size 6 lower is not pear shaped.

Comment by Krisit — March 28, 2010 @ 1:15 pm

yeah, these women are pretty much all very similar body types. how about someone who’s a size 10 or 12? or someone who is extremely tall and straight shaped?

Different body types? Throw Yao Ming in there and you’ve got it made :D

Comment by Brendan — March 28, 2010 @ 5:35 pm

I’m with everyone else on this one! A petite girl is not 5’6′!

Comment by sarah — March 29, 2010 @ 6:27 am

Give me a break – “different” body types would be to throw somebody in the mix who isn’t a size 6 on the bottom. Oh and how about those of us with some oomph up top? 36C *IS* the most common bra size…

Thank you for your feedback everyone!

I definitely hear what you are saying loud and clear, and will take this into consideration with my work reviews going forward.

Thank you Whitney for posting tops that aren’t even available on the website for us all to see. Your posts are always informative and creative. I am petite and I get the idea of how that top will look on me. I will be going to buy the “All Out Tank” today! I am a size 2 in bottoms, 6 in bras and 4-6 in tops. That should prove to you all that sizes in lululemon dont reflect the shape of someone’s body. Im 5’1 and I wear a size 6!

I think I’ve found a perfect gift for my wife’s birthday. Our daughter is now 2 years old and my wife is *almost* back to her pre-pregnancy weight, however she still frets about losing those last few pounds. This top is stylish and will make her feel good about herself.
