What Makes a Good Tank Top?

22, Jul, 19

Tank tops for women are an essential part of any woman’s summer wardrobe, but not all tank tops are the same. You should not settle for a tank that makes you feel uncomfortable and less confident. When purchasing a tank top, you want to be sure you choose a good one, but what makes a good tank top?

At Heirloom, our standpoint is that clothing should be high-quality, and no matter the item, they should be designed properly and fit comfortably. Here is what women’s tank tops should offer you.


There’s nothing worse than wearing clothes that make you wish that you could just get home and change into your nightwear. When looking for a good tank top, you want to make sure that you make comfort a priority. If you can’t go throughout the day without feeling uncomfortable in your new tank top, you’ve probably invested in the wrong top. The best tank tops for women will have a soft-stretch fabric and tag-less design to ensure max comfort.


As you continue to look for good tank tops, another aspect to pay attention to is the design. One flaw in the design could end up ruining the overall comfort of the top. Tank tops for women should provide the wearer with a slim feminine fit; a fit that allows you to stretch, bend and lean with ease. A soft-stretch fabric, mentioned earlier, will also help hold the wearer in without binding them. With a design like this, you won’t find a better tank top.

Proportions and Sizing

There are undoubtedly some tank tops for women out there that come in weird sizes that just don’t seem to make any sense. However, we offer our customers a sizing chart to help them find the right tank top. There are things such as the extra coverage that our smooth neckline and long-length provide that women should be aware of as they try to find the right fit. Additionally, sizing up or sizing down is something to consider based on how you are looking to use your tank top.  Doing these things should help you find the best fitting tank top.

These three things are the most important things to look for when you’re searching for a good tank top. If you’re ready to invest in quality clothing this summer, make sure to check out our selection of tops on our website.


Choosing the Right Shirt for the Right Occasion

22, Jul, 19

Considering tops for women (and men) are typically the main focus of an outfit, you want to be sure you pick the right one, but how can you know what’s right when there are so many tops for women to choose from? In your own closet, there may be times when you feel there are almost too many different options. Below, we have some great tips that will leave you prepared no matter the event you are attending.

French Style Tips

Ines de la Fressange, a French fashion icon, recommends always dressing a tad bit down for the occasion. When you dress down a bit, it makes it appear as if you are not trying too hard to impress others. Doing so will likely leave you with a balanced look. The late Coco Chanel gave similar advice: “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” This tip was Chanel's way of making sure she wouldn't over-accessorize.

Now, these tips depend entirely on your personal style, but they are a sure way to avoid overdressing. While there are plenty of tops for women to choose from when deciding what to wear at your next event, it might be best to simply consider what makes you most comfortable. In other words, if you feel more comfortable dressed up, ignore these French-style tips and wear what you want to wear!

Make Your Outfit Interchangeable

An excellent way to make sure that you are dressed appropriately for any event is to haul interchangeable accessories in your purse or car. If you aren’t sure how to dress for a specific event, there are pieces you can bring that can instantly dress an outfit up or down. For example, a black shirt and dark jeans can be dressed up or down in so many different ways. If you are going to a professional meeting, you can wear it with a plaid blazer, black heels, and your favorite professional jewelry. If you are going on a casual date you can add a colorful leather jacket, white sneakers, and your favorite earrings.

For occasions when you do not know what to wear, these types of outfits are perfect because they are interchangeable. If you start walking into a wedding reception and realize it is a lot dressier than you thought, you can add some classy earrings, an elegant necklace, or fancy purse and you will instantly look more fitting for the occasion.

Out of all of the dresses, skirts, coats and tops for women, wardrobe staples are oftentimes the most important. If you have a good number of essential tops and fitting accessory pieces, you should have what you need to dress appropriately for any event.



The Difference Between a Tank Top and a Camisole Shirt

22, Jul, 19

The weather is heating up, so that means it is time to break out all of your tank tops and camisole shirts. If you are wondering what the difference between a tank top and camisole shirt is, we are here to help you recognize the difference and decide which top is best for you and you!

Basic Tank Top

When it comes to wearing something light for layering or as an individual piece, a basic tank top is a great option. With its smooth neckline, it offers extra coverage without being too high. It has a slim feminine fit that is going to hold you in but won’t bind you. This is perfect if you are going to be on the go all summer long. Our tank top will work wonderfully if you are looking to even a farmers tan, or if you are planning to use it underneath a sheer top or jacket.

Basic Camisole Shirt

Like our tanks, our camisole shirts can also be worn by themselves or used to layer for extra coverage. They typically come with all the same features as our tank top but are lighter around the shoulders. With thinner straps than tanks, camis work well when you are looking for something that has less material or needs to be covered easily. Ultimately though, how you wear your cami comes down to your own personal preference!

At the end of the day, our tank tops and camisole shirts do not differ that much from each other. The main difference is the size of the strap. Our tank top straps are a couple of inches in width, while the straps on our camisole shirt are about a half-inch. Once you figure out which strap size you prefer, you are set! You do not have to sacrifice style or functionality by choosing one from another. If you are still unsure, try getting both to see which one you like best!

Even though the straps are different, they both come with features you will not want to live without. Their extra length provides adequate coverage so you don’t have to worry about anything hanging out while you are at your summer barbecue or on your favorite summer hike.

No matter what you are doing this summer, tank tops and camisole shirts should be found in your summer wardrobe! Trust us on this, you will not be disappointed!
