The Internet Can't Pick Just One Favorite Tank Top (Good Thing They're Under $10)

No matter what your style personality is, odds are you fall back on a plain, white tank when the days get hot. Nothing feels more appropriate for an all-American barbecue than cutoffs and a tank top (preferably accessorized with a bandana). But oftentimes, it's the staples we take for granted that we struggle to find. So Rank & Style set out on a quest to definitively answer, once and for all: Who makes the best white tank?

It's a tie, with two of Old Navy's styles taking the crown: a classic rib knit and a cami-like V-neck version. The competition was tough, but these tops — which come in regular, tall, and petite fits — beat out their worthy opponents due to the overwhelmingly positive reviews. Hundreds of satisfied customers have chimed in to sing the tanks' praises (1,553 reviews and four stars for the ribbed tank, 993 and 4.3 stars for the V-neck). Users call out the comfortable material that doesn't lose its shape, a good fit that holds, and a versatility that allows for infinite layering possibilities. The wide color offerings don't hurt, either. And with their designated "Everyday Steal!" status — each tank retails for less than $10 — you might as well pick up both and see for yourself why the Internet's obsessed.

Now, what to do with the money saved? You could find out why some T-shirts are worth splurging on. Or you can round out the it's-too-hot-for-sleeves section of your closet with the best graphic T-shirts and running tops. If you need us, we'll be letting our arms breathe until Labor Day.
