SOAS Aquarius Tank and Short

The draw: Appealing aesthetics

We would’ve named this kit Violet Femme … but we digress. The kaleidoscopic color scheme is fun and flattering, and we appreciated this two-piece’s chafe-free comfort and ample storage space. The longer tank, which doesn’t ride up when tucked in the aero position or running, has a built-in shelf bra, but women with medium- and larger-sized busts will want the added support of a sports bra. A silicone band at the short’s leg openings keeps them in place without any pinch.
