This summer, it’s hard to find a tank that actually has a back. And with the reign of these and low-back tops comes a bevy of super strappy sports bras, made for showing off your lats in style.
Straps used to just be for support. Now, they’re thick, skinny, overlapping, criss-crossing, cut out, tied up, and more.
Just leave extra time to get in and out of these. And don’t wear them to beach boot camp, lest you end up with the craziest tan lines, ever. —Lisa Elaine Held and Sarah Sarway
