Fashion Must-Have: The Perfect Tank + My OOTD

I probably own black tank tops from just about every plus size store that I frequently shop from. I have an entire drawer of them. Why so many? Well, it's actually very difficult to find a good one. Who knew a basic wardrobe staple could be so difficult? Many seem to be way to short and not give the coverage I desire, or they far too long and bunch up under my clothing when trying to layer them.  Why can't they just be a good length and stay in place? 

Another major issue is the material many brands and designers choose. Some stretch out so easily after wearing, but they do not easily return to their original shape. Other do not stretch enough and just feel way too tight. Many times the material is just way too thin and I can see right through it...that means I have to layer another tank with that tank if I want to wear it out. ugh! 

However, I think the search is finally over. I think I found "the one". So exciting! I tried my very first SkinnyTees "And A Little More" tank. Craziest thing about this tank...it fits perfectly, yet only comes in one size. It feels like the perfect fit each time I wear it. It feels like it was custom made just for me. I'm pretty sure this is The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants of tank tops. My mind is blown!
When my tank arrived, I was pleasantly surprised at the cute packaging and the great little extras they included to help me to care for my tank. My package included detergent, a laundry care bag and a super cute Skinnytees reusable shopping bag. Too cute!

Since its arrival, I have been wearing the tank in different ways to get a really good feel for the quality and abilities of it. Yesterday, I wore it to the park for an afternoon walk with my husband.

Even with all that walking we did- climbing hills and all- this tank stayed in place. How does that even happen? This tank is seriously a miracle.
When I was looking through the photos we took at the park, I noticed that the tank stayed in place and smooth the entire time. No bunching, no riding up, no stretched out fabric. It was just there with a great smooth silhouette.  I was completely surprised that this top maintained such an amazing appearance.

This tank is super comfortable and super easy to style. It's easy to layer with other pieces during the cool months. It will also look great on it's own during the warm months. The straps are perfect for wearing your fave bra with the tank, you don't have to worry with an annoying strapless bra or constantly monitor the bra strap situation while praying that your bra straps stay in place.

For this look, I paired it with a new BB Dakota from Gwynnie Bee coat and some skinny pants. The length is great for wearing with pants. It doesn't feel too short or too long.  The coat is a new addition to my life also. I just received it, and the tank seemed to compliment it perfectly.

Here are a couple more pics of the coat (I'm obsessed!):
