The new Flow fabric earned its way into the O line by being highly functional (effortlessly moves heat and sweat, even during high intensity workouts), is extra stretchy (no tightness or binding), and is brilliant in its color (a 2-knit texture brings it to life). This tank is both simple and hard-working. Contrast stripe detailing at the neck and armholes add a design detail, while the body knit lies comfortably. Wear testers report a floaty feeling... for that flow state.

- contrast binding
- 24" body length (size small)
I picked up this tank for two reasons: 1) I live in Tennessee (= humid!!) and 2) the higher neckline. I'm thrilled with both the humidity performance and the flowy fit around my middle. I reach for this top before any other - sometimes I even prefer to rewear this one for a second workout to a clean tank. Gross? Probably. True? Definitely.
I have the Caspian blue/ white color, and no issues with see-through.
The fabric is definitely fragile. Based on some of the other reviews, I always wash this in a delicates bag - and even then got a small pick in the fabric - probably from a zipper on another clothing article. This isn't a big enough concern to stop me from buying another!
Love the fit and feel of this lightweight tank. I did notice the neckline has gotten a bit stretched out over time, which is why I took off a star. Most of my activewear pieces from both O and other brands maintain their fit and structure for many years, so it was a bit of a disappointment to see the signs of wear so soon (after 1 season)
Love the feel of the fabric, although as many have pointed out it is fragile. My main issue though is that it rides up. Some other brands will have subtle 'grippy' things on the inside hem that make a big difference in in helping it stay put. For some reason this top seemed to ride up more than other Oiselle tops I own, perhaps because of the lightness of the fabric itself?
I love these tanks and bought them in three colors. After one season, though, I have several snags in each. The yellow tank is see through, too, so keep that in mind if you choose that one. If the fabric was more durable and the yellow less translucent, I'd give these five stars.
I like this new tank! Very light / soft / comfy. it is a bit see through, so keep that in mind if you get one of the lighter colors. It is a looser fit around the mid section, which is good for hiding my abdominal fat. it's not as stylin' as the Flyte tank, which I think is their best looking tank, but it's good for when you want something different or need to hide your chubs (like after a big meal). I got it in size S which is my usual size for Oiselle tops. It is looser fitting so I probably could have gotten XS but I like the looseness for the reasons mentioned above.
I love this tank! It’s much brighter than the photos show (in the best way possible). Flattering cut, great for humid and sweaty long runs. I got the lapis
When I originally tried this one, was unsure - the shoulders fit a little weird / extra material and it was a wee bit big for my normal O size (8 / M). However, went ahead and washed it (I do throw my tops in the drier), and now it's perfect. It's floaty / loose and handles the texas humidity well, and seems cooler than flyout overall. It's my new favorite for handling the heat and humidity down here in the deep south! For reference I'm 5'3" / 135 pounds and the medium, once washed and dried, fit perfect with the right amount of "loose" to handle the heat.
I have the lapis/crackle and like another reviewer, this was much more bright and neon than the pictures show. It’s not necessarily the colors I was wanting, but they’re alright and the fabric is very soft. The fit is overall good. I’m 5’9” and 180 postpartum and ordered a M but like most Oiselle tops I wish this were longer. It’s not bad, I am just always left wanting another 1-2 inches on the bottom.
