Happy Monday! I can't believe it is Thanksgiving week and already the Black Friday sales have started. I just got an email from Net-A-Porter and I'm eyeing this Phillip Lim bag that's 40% off.
Anyhow, I dug up some old photos I took when I tried on the Yogi Racerback III to compare to the new version. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and typically a size 4 in tops. Sometimes I can fit a size 2, but rarely.

So here I'm trying on the old version in size 2 and you can clearly see while the front looks fine, the back of the tank near my hips was way too tight in the size 2. You can see it in the mirror reflection in the below pic. I never did try on the size 4, because I don't think this style would have worked on my petite frame. You can see it in my face, I was not impressed.

Now we have a new updated version of the tank. I ordered the size 4 this time to try. While I did like the fit more than the old version, I still think the tank does not flatter a petite frame.

The front looks fine. It's a good length. The hem is straight across instead of the curved hem in version III. I actually prefer the straight hem more. The neckline is still a little too low for my tastes, but if I'm wearing it to workout, I'm okay with showing the bra. I wouldn't wear this out casually though.
The view from the side looks okay, but it does flare out underneath my butt for some strange reason. It's not too bad, but it is noticeable. If you're looking for a longer tank to wear with leggings that also covers your bum, this would definitely fit the bill. But for me, I am returning it since I wouldn't be able to wear this out casually and I already have enough workout tanks. If the neckline was higher and if the hem was slightly shorter, I would have kept this.
They also removed the pocket from the tank which I prefer. I don't like pockets anywhere on my chest. I can't see there being a purpose for a pocket on a tank other than for decoration. And I don't think it added anything, so I'm glad it's gone.
What do you think of the new version? Would love to know!
