This tank is a favorite at The Nest. Per usual, it starts with a superior fabric: in this case, a Plya Knit Hole Punch that Kara calls "A dream," and, "It stretches but still holds its shape." With just the right amount of Lycra, the tank has body for your body. It's a modified muscle tank silhouette, with a slight A-line shape, and also providing more coverage in the back (making it one of our most versatile spring styles). Bottom line, we wanted to create a style for Kara Goucher that helped her go from the run to the gym to the rest of her life in one fluid motion.
- Plya Knit Hole Punch (polyester / spandex)

I LOVE the look of this tank and it's going to be in heavy rotation for barre class and short runs. I wore it on a 2 mile run and could begin to feel some chafing under my right arm, so I don't think it's going to work on longer runs. The Snap color is so delightful, and the look, feel and hang of the tank is great. But probably not going to be a go-to for normal to long runs. I am 5'2, 115 lbs and wear a size 2 (good fit although might be tight on the chest if you have a larger chest size). 4 stars though, for yoga/barre/cute summer top.
I LOVE this tank. The fabric is soft and cool and the fit is relaxed yet fitted. My one and only issue is that the arm hole chaffed my arm, near my armpit on a long sweaty run today. Ouch! Otherwise, this is one of my many Oiselle go-tos.
On the whole, like this tank. Could use a lower neckline. Size down for a more streamlined fit
I wanted another tank to run in the hot , humid summer . This shirt is so comfortable. It is airy and light. The comfort is like the Flyte and Flyout tanks which I live in for running in the summer. The material is different , but soft and airy. You do not even realize how sweaty you are till you lean against something. The sizing is the same for me in all the tops, a 10 or a large. Now do I get another Flyout or do I get a different color of the Kara tank. I bought the Grounded one and it is a gorgeous blue.
I wanted so badly to love this tank... I absolutely love the snap color, and the fit on the model looks perfectly loose, but not draped/baggy...
I specifically bought this tank because I wanted something light and airy for running in the heat and humidity here in Puerto Rico. Sadly, the material is heavier and stiffer than I expected from the reviews. It’s strange too, because the material itself super thin, but wearing it feels almost like wearing plastic - it’s just not breathable. I expected it to be similar in weight and breathability to the flyout fabric - it’s not. I’m really hoping that with wear, it loosens up to become more breathable and move better!
As for the fit... I was a little unsure about the slight A line cut, but it’s actually not too bad! I do wish the cut had a slight curve in the waist/mid torso area so it was a bit more flattering, but I do like that the cut makes it looser fitting than the majority of Oiselle tanks.
Overall, this tank looks really great on! Probably in cooler weather, the feel of the fabric wouldn’t be so noticeable, but hoping it becomes less stiff with time. 🤞🏼🤞🏼 In the meantime, I’m gonna have to save it to wear on cooler days or for non-running activities.
For reference, I’m 5’6”, about 180lbs and ordered a size 10. (The current seasons sizes seem like to run smaller than past seasons; I normally order a medium or size 8 in Oiselle tops, but have had to size up this season.)
Love this tank! The quality, feel, and comfort are everything! For reference, I’m 5’5, 115 lbs, apple shaped and I purchased the size 2. The fit is PERFECT. It’s a bit roomy around the waist without being baggy. This is the most flattering tank I’ve ever worn. The orange is a bright and beautiful neon. So fun for summer!! I wish it came in black. Please offer more colors!!! It’s absolutely perfect for long runs in our scorching hot L.A. summer days. The fabric keeps you cool and is super light. You nailed it with this one, Oiselle!!!!!
As the other comments stated this top is light and airy. However, I’m quite busty, and this top fit very awkwardly. Hits at waist in the back, rides up in the front, looser in fit. Had a terrible smell upon taking it out of package. Had to return.
This tank is everything for summer runs - light, stretchy, ventilated, quick drying! It's not too tight, so it hangs away from my torso, and not loose enough that there's extra material flapping on the run. Runs true to size for me, which is convenient when you want it in every color.
