As summer rolls around, it’s important to focus on creating a wardrobe that will keep you cool and comfortable throughout the hotter months. During the summer, sleeveless tops are staple tops for women that spends a lot of time outside. With the freedom a sleeveless shirt gives you, they are oftentimes the most efficient way to beat the summer heat. Before you settle for just any sleeveless top, you have to consider which type is best for you.
You might be thinking, “As long as there is no sleeves, what is there to decide?” However, when it comes to sleeveless tops for women, there are two types to choose from, camisoles and tank tops! Here at aungcrown, we offer both of these types and can tell you what makes each of them a good option!
Camisoles are a great option for those who are looking to layer in the summer. These shirts offer a slim feminine fit, making them a light and comfortable option for layering. Its long length helps to cover low cut pants and skirts, and the thin straps make it a comfortable tank to wear underneath another shirt, jacket or blazer. In addition to its layering capability, camisoles can be used as standalone tops for women. Whether you are exercising or going to bed, there are a lot of standalone uses.
Even more than camisole shirts, tank tops are often worn more as standalone shirts. Whether you use your tank top as an active shirt or not, the thick straps offer more support and just as much of a smooth neckline as the camisole. Tanks are some of the best tops for women because their sleek look and comfortable fit. You can find tanks that work nicely for layering or some that are flattering enough to wear on their own. If you’re going to be using your tank tops as a standalone shirt, make sure that you order a size up.

The Guide for Tank Tops
Tank tops for women usually offer a slim fit but ours also offer soft-stretch fabric that doesn’t bind, a long length that covers low cut pants and a smooth neckline for extra coverage. To really take advantage of all these benefits, you’re going to want to make sure that you don’t just guess your size, rather really investigate on which size is going to fit your body type the best. Here are the official measurements for women’s tank tops.
Our tanks range from S to XL sizes, and it’s up to your measurements — as well as your personal preference — that will decide what size is going to be best for you. For example, if you’re looking to use your tank top as a layering shirt, you may want to go with a snugger fit, meaning you’re going to want to match your measurements as accurately as possible or even size down. If you want to use your tank top as a standalone shirt, match your measurements to the Fit Guide or even consider sizing up from your current size for a more relaxed fit.
