As someone who does yoga at least twice a week, I was very excited to try a new top that was geared towards participating in yoga and see if I liked it better than other athletic tops I wear. I am reviewing the Aurorae Racer Back Yoga Tank Top in a size Medium and color Black, but there are sizes XS-XXL and quite a variety of colors.
My biggest gripe when I pick out a top for yoga is having it be loose. I hate the feeling of my stomach being exposed and chances are when you are doing yoga you will expose your stomach unless you have the right top and this is the tight top. It is made long so that it covers my torso completely (my torso is on the long side too) and stretches in to place settling at the top of your hips. The bottom of the top pretty much stayed exactly there the entire time of yoga class.
My next biggest concern with yoga clothes is if the top of the shirt comes forward when I am in downward dog and end of having my nose in my shirt. You just can't breath or relax when it looks like you are a turtle with your head in its shell rather than a downward dog. This top does not do that at all. The only part about this shirt that I wanted to point out is that make sure you wear a sports bra underneath that adequately covers your chest as the top part moves a bit with all the movement (granted I go to a power yoga class, so we move rather rapidly).
Overall, I am very with this top because it isn't loose and it nice and long.
