At Oiselle, our vision is to help all women feel strong and free through the joy of running. Our mission is to design great product, build the sisterhood, and improve the sport. May we all experience the transformative power of sports and community.
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.
I was hesitant to buy this, after the long sleeve version snagged in my first wear, but I love it. It’s a slightly sheer, weightless top with a fitted but slightly relaxed fit; perfect for hot weather training and racing. The arm holes fit nicely (no gaping), length is perfect and the reinforced hemline does a great job preventing ride-up.
I do think the price was too high for something so delicate but I got mine on sale and will be buying several more for winter base layers and next summer’s cover ups.
Kudos to Oiselle also for using biodegradable packaging!
Wasn't sure if Flow Hoverfit material would live up to expectations, and it did! I wore the Flow tank on a humid summer run, and even though the tank was drenched, I never felt weighed down by the sweat, and the tank did not cling to me when soaked, unlike the a traditional technical shirts. I liked the Flow tank so much that I ordered another one as soon as I got home from the run!
I can understand why other reviewers mention the delicate fabric and how it might snag. Unfortunately, I think it is the tradeoff needed for its lightweight breathable nature.
These tanks are excellent. I own 4 of them now. I tried one on a whim, looking for something with more coverage on top. I loved it and have come back for 3 more. Along with running, I teach Yoga and wanted something that wasn't low cut in front, but also light weight. I appreciate a great sleeveless tank and the colors are awesome. I agree with other comments that the fabric is delicate. I am careful with them, and haven't seen a snag yet. I wash with other synthetic workout gear and it has worked great.
