Women’s Active Wear: The Racerback Tank Top and Other Popular Styles

Not all tanks are created equal. Something as simple as a sleeveless top can come in a wide assortment of styles, for just about every kind of look. The best kind of tank for a variety of fitness activities is the racerback tank top. This type of tank is usually related to activewear because the back shoulder area is left open allowing for maximum flexibility and range of motion.

District® Clothing has four styles of racerback tanks for women. Learn a little more about each below:
