Tank tops are a great addition to any girl’s wardrobe. They come in a multitude of different colors and in every size possible. They are a cute way to dress and look very casual. Perfect for layering and definitely a must have piece in a wardrobe.
There are some things to consider when we wear tank tops so that we can show them off to the best advantage. Take into consideration the straps of your tank top and wear a bra that does not show. If your tank top has really thin spaghetti straps then choose a strapless bra. If strapless bras just don’t work for you then consider getting one with clear straps so that they are not visible next to your tank top.

For tank tops that are very tight fitting you should select a bra that is seamless and one that does not wrinkle under the top. Tank tops have a way of revealing every bump underneath and you really want to keep things as smooth as possible.
Tank tops look very cool when worn with a pair of shorts. Pick a solid color tank top and pair it with a patterned pair of shorts for a great effect.
