Tops are often the hardest active wear piece to buy. Sleeves are irritating, straps fall off our shoulders, and breasts play peek-a-boo. So we opt for an old tank or tee that we can toss after a few months. The result? Dag. Enter: lululemon In A Cinch tank. It’s the perfect cut top that’s cinched in at the back to minimise bulk and movement during your workout.
