YMX Mandarin Tank

Mandarin back

My new favorite top is this YMX tank, the Elemental Air Mandarin tank. It looks beautiful and feels great. I have some tops just for dancing Nia, some just for running, and some just for hanging out; this top can handle it all. This one is highly recommended. 


Fit

The top fits true to size. The fabric is silky, so it fits best to hang a bit, which means some people may be more comfortable sizing up one size. In my usual size, I’ve got plenty of room in the shoulders and across the bust without it getting shapeless or boxy through the middle. It’s long enough to keep me covered when I’m moving, even moving my arms high as we do in Nia.  I know a top fits well when I don’t think about it once while I’m teaching. This is that top. 


Function

The fabric is light and smooth, so there’s no chafing on a long run. The fabric doesn’t show sweat marks, either.  MadKool fabric is extremely light-weight and I have not yet had any YMX top develop any snags or pilling. It’s machine washable and doesn’t stink (hey, life gets sweaty). 


Fun

This top has gotten the most “where did you get that?” and “wow, that’s a great top” comments from students. The high collar makes it just a bit different. The colors are beautiful and though that pink is pretty bright, it’s not right up against my skin, so it’s easy to wear. If you live in a hot climate, I could see wearing this to work in the summer. It’s bright, but the design, like the Peony, doesn’t scream active wear or “I’m going to yoga as soon as work is over!” I like the scoop neck better than a V neck. This is high enough for full coverage yet not so high that it looks stuffy.  A support bra doesn’t show through, not at the shoulders or through the fabric.
