We look at 15 white tank tops at different price points to see how they compare side by side.
The simple white tank top is one of the sexiest tops ever invented, especially if you cut off the bottom and don’t wear a bra. For example there is Tove Lo in her “Disco Tits” music video where she takes drugs and dances with a puppet.
On a man the white tank or ‘wife beater’ is a little sketch because it’s technically an undergarment. But on women the look is a basic that has to be updated regularly, because it goes with everything. And you don’t want gross pit stains on your cami or tank.
