For something so small, the midriff causes quite a stir. There are those that like it, those that flaunt it and those that always have it covered. But no matter whether you see it as the stomach half showing or half covered, there’s no denying (when worn right) it can look damn good.

That being said, there’s a fine slither of skin between tacky and tasteful. To make it more Beyonce than Britney Spears, all it takes is a good crop and some flattering tights. Since we already have you covered on the tights, this should help you out with the second step. Whether your stomach is as flat as a healthy pancake or not, these five sports bras are well worth getting it out for.

5 Sports Crops Worthy Of Going T-shirt Free

1. The Upside

We love the Japanese-inspired Shimoda crop from THE UPSIDE. The unique patterned print pays homage to authentic Japanese designs, and when fused with the modern striped band, it makes the perfect sporty statement.

2. First Base

Safe to say this is the sexiest sports crop we’ve ever seen. With a plunging neckline and keyhole cut out back, it shows off all the right places. But it’s not just sultry; it’s supportive and sustainable too. It has removable cups, a racer back, and is made from 80% recycled materials. First Base? Sounds like a home run to us.
