A Tank Top is a shirt made without sleeves or with the sleeves cut off and is worn by men and women. Because it is a warm weather article of
clothing, most tank tops are usually cotton or cotton blends. They are mostly worn in summer or hot climates, since the lack of sleeves provides ventilation and the normally thin cotton fabric is comfortable in the heat. In certain sports and activities tank tops are preferred by some people: track and field, bicycling, yoga, workouts of all types when freedom of movement is needed. For women, types of tank tops include: racerbacks, camisoles, rib tank tops, spaghetti strap tanks, ruffle tanks, halter tie tanks, hip length tanks, built in bra tanks and others. Women's Tank Top necklines may include: scoop, v-neck, square neck, keyhole, etc. Men's Tank Tops styles may include: mesh, muscle, cotton, gym shirts, square cut, jersey, workout tank tops and more. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, tank tops worn alone are usually considered inappropriate wear for office, weddings, religious services. If a blouse, cardigan, blazer or jacket is worn over a tank top it may be acceptable depending on the situation.
