Tank tops are simply a modification of men’s vest which has usually larger sleeve joint. It is usually believed that tank tops fall in the feminine territory, but in reality, both genders wear tank tops. For ladies, the shoulder hook is so thin, whereas for men it is thicker. One category of men who frequently uses tank tops is the body builders.

It is available in various clothes like cotton, polyester etc. They are sometimes called as gym vests too.
How to choose a better tank top?
- Size – One thing to keep in mind is that always choose a body-fittank top if you prefer the look to be satisfying. It is usually available in Small (S), medium (M), large (L), Extra Large (XL), Double Large (XXL) or triple large (XXXL). Most requirements would be fit around medium to XL, whereas others are so rare in the market.
- Design – Bodybuilding tanks usually have a thick shoulder strap, which is available in various thicknesses. Medium thick shoulder strap would be a perfect show, rather than trying the full shoulder covered one.
- Comfort – Always choose the one that displays the body curves, if you are intended for little showcasing, else the tank top gives you a thorny look making you look like as if you have scavenged the tanks from the bin.
- Fabrics – Tank tops give a better freedom during the workout, helping the body sweat out, while there is a minimum surface area at the top to absorb and retain sweat that helps better evaporation and body temperature control.
