The Rankings

Zella Strength Performance T-Shirt
Rank & Style Approved


Zella Strength Performance T-Shirt

WHY YOU NEED IT: Lightweight, silky soft, and non-clingy, this sweat-wicking workout top is cozy enough to serve as a lounge tee too. We recommend grabbing one in each color.

USERS SAID: "I purchase as many of these tops as they deliver different colors! I love the comfortable feel of the material, and I especially love how well they wash and do NOT wrinkle. I exercise in them, dress them up, and sleep in them."

Amazon Essentials Studio Open-Back Short-Sleeve T-Shirt

LOVED FOR: Thanks to the very cute open back, this tunic is one of the breeziest in the bunch.

STYLE WITH: This top is perfect for showing off your most stylish sports bras.

Amazon Essentials Studio Racerback Tank

BEST FOR: If you're looking for a budget buy, this Amazon Essentials tank has you covered. With its flowy fabric, flattering fit, and high-quality feel, reviewers say it easily rivals pricier options from Lululemon and Outdoor Voices.

HELPFUL TIP: This top runs a little small, so we recommend sizing up for the best fit.

Athleta Ultimate Train Tee

WHAT IT DOES: Cute looks aside, this top-selling tee has so much going for it. Made with lightweight fabric that instantly pulls moisture away from the body, it dries ultra-fast and stays breathable the entire time you're breaking a sweat.

FUN FACT: This tee is made with recycled nylon, meaning it's high performing and sustainable.

Lululemon Brunswick Muscle Tank

STYLE WITH: Muscle tanks are trending big right now, so this soft and relaxed top will work just as well with denim shorts on the weekend as it will with leggings in the studio.

USERS SAID: "I love this tank so much I have it in four colors and search regularly to see if any new ones have been added. It’s very flattering for everyday wear, and it's oversized but doesn’t drown me. I love the small pleats at the shoulders."

Amazon Essentials Studio Relaxed-Fit Lightweight Crewneck T-Shirt

LOVED FOR: Who doesn't love a good high-low hem? Short in the front and bum-covering in the back, this top is as flattering as it gets.

HELPFUL TIP: Reviewers say this shirt runs large, but we recommend sticking with your regular size if you want to keep that slightly boxy fit.

Zella Strength Racerback Tank

WHY YOU NEED IT: It doesn't get any more classic than this. Breezy, affordable, and perfect for everything from barre to bumming on the couch, these are the kind of tanks worth stocking up on.

USERS SAID: "Love these tanks. They are loose, but they don't ride up when doing yoga inversions. They also give great coverage for those of us busty gals who are a bit more modest. The white is a bit see-through, but the other colors, although thin, are great."

Lululemon All Yours Boyfriend Tee

BEST FOR: Tired of stealing your significant other's oversized tees? Here's your fix. Made with soft, stretchy fabric and a relaxed fit, these are even better than your BF's.

STYLE WITH: When we're not wearing these to barre or kickboxing, we'll be living in them with our lounge leggings.

Athleta Cloudlight Stratus Tee

WHERE TO WEAR: Made with Athleta's ultra-soft Cloudlight fabric, this airy tunic is the perfect thing to throw on when you're going to and from the studio. Although, you may never want to take it off once it's on—don't say we didn't warn you.

FUN FACT: Cloudlight fabric is made with Tencel modal, a fiber produced from European beechwood trees harvested from sustainable forests where 99% of the raw material comes from certified or controlled sources.

Mippo Cross Back Yoga Shirt

WHY YOU NEED IT: Not only is this tank one of the coolest and most comfortable on the list (thank you, modal-and-spandex blend), but it's also insanely affordable given its high-quality construction. To top it all off, the trendy cross-back design makes it look so expensive.

USERS SAID: “Absolutely love this tank. It's super comfy and cute with the unique crossed back. The material is soft and thin enough to be light and airy without being sheer or feeling cheap.”
