I adore this tee! For reference I HATE wearing t-shirts while working out. I usually find them sweaty and annoying. This tee is super light, cropped and sheer, I barely notice that I'm wearing it. For all those reasons, this is now a go to top when I'm working out but need more coverage! I don't think this top if for everyone, but if you're someone who enjoys a relaxed sheer fit, this is definitely for you! (I love that my sports bras show through!)
If you'd like to see how it fits and moves, I included it in my Cottagecore Collection Youtube haul!
Very sheer, but a perfect fit crop, IMO. I do have a short torso, but love that this shirt is short, but not totally exposing the belly. The color makes it work with almost anything and I would totally get this in multiple colors!
I really liked the explore tee from the Tropicana collection (I got one in lychee) so I loved that this one came in 100% cotton! However, it's a very light cotton material, and a lot thinner than the Tropicana version. I like to pair this with the flexy crop tops so the backing can peek out. Also when I first tried it on the top back strap (of the opening) kind of stuck out and looked a little awkward (as pictured), but after wearing it for a while it started to lay flat against my back.
I go to the climbing gym a lot and don't always want to be showing all of my stomach but I also don't want to have to wear a shirt or tank top over my workout bra. This top is exactly what I was looking for! Incredibly light, you can still kind of see what your top looks like underneath, you're still covered enough to feel comfortable and it moves well with my body while I climb. A lot of the tops I found that were similar were still made out of heaver material, they would get in my way and it was just overkill on top of wearing a sports bra or crop sports bra.
I have been OBSESSED with the Explore tee from Tropicana ever since I bought it, so I was stoked to get this one. I do prefer that one to this one based on material, but I still really like this one. When I wear it with the Storybook Crop, the cottagecore fabric peeks out the bottom a little when I move (I'm pretty tall and have a long torso) and it looks really cute. It's lightweight (and a lot thinner), making it perfect for these hot late-summer days, and the color is great. It's not supposed to be exactly like Tropicana and I respect that! I will say definitely size up and don't dry this item all the way, as it is 100% cotton! I dried mine for ~10 min, stretched it a bit, and hung it up to air dry to keep it the same size.
I loved the explore tees from the tropicana collection (got them in both colors) and so I pounced on this one. The material is much thinner this time, and more sheer. This isn't necessarily bad - it's a nice effect with a colorful bra underneath, but I did find the material not as comfortable as the previous ones.
This shirt is okay. Very thin, good for exercising if you aren’t confident in just a sports bra. Overall quality is just okay. I like it for sleeping when it’s hot.
