While this pattern was in it’s pre-testing phase and we were trying to come up with a name for it, our incredible testers dubbed it the “24/7 Tank”, since they can see themselves wearing it all day, all night, on repeat. And when your testers give you a brilliant idea, you go with it. So we did!
Let’s talk all about the 24/7 Tank and introduce y’all to the latest and greatest pattern to hit the P4P lineup!
- Pick up an athletic knit and use that shelf bra, add in clear elastic into the thin binding and you have the perfect long line sports bra.
- Switch out the athletic knit for swim knit and use swim elastic and you’ve got yourself an adorable tankini swim top!
- Make it comfortable in a soft modal fabric and make the shelf bra in just something soft with no powermesh or cups and you have the perfect sleep tank.
- Leave the shelf bra out completely and use an everyday knit… you have the perfect tank for summer or for layering under in cooler months.
Some of our favorites are: athletic knit, swim knit, ribbed knits, double brushed poly, yummy rib knit, rayon/modal/bamboo knit, ITY/DTY knit, etc.
The youth sizes range from 3m – 14 and the adult sizes are for the full, newer size chart, extending from XXS – Plus 5X for the Adult Hourglass Figure.
