Sister-to-Sister Product Review: ABD Muscle Tanks!

Sister-to-Sister Product Review: ABD Muscle Tanks!

MUSCLE your way into a super cool look for BID DAY! ULTRA Premier Tier Sponsor Apparel Sponsor ADAM BLOCK DESIGN sent me four sorority muscles tank tops for review and I am thrilled to tell you all about them. 

• About Adam Block Design • 

Adam Block Design is all about originality, creativity and customization. Any brand, any style, any color, any design. If you're looking for the unique, ABD can do it for you. Quality products, great customer service, creative design, superior printing and fast shipping are all part of your ordering experience. Greek clothing should be more than just letters and clip-art on a shirt! ABD specializes in chapter orders with a 24 piece minimum, but they also sell "single buy" ready-to-wear shirts and crowdfunded BlockBuy apparel and accessories. 

• About the Muscle Tanks •

The four shirts that I examined were each a little different, but they all had the signature deep cut-out arm holes of a true muscle tank. I especially loved the daisy design (pictured above) printed on a soft coral/orange tie dye fabric. The shirt is really, really soft, flowy and ultra lightweight. It has a thinly banded scoop neck and feminine styling. The orange sherbet color is perfect for a hot bid day in August. The design is so fresh. It's my #1 pick of the four.

Muscle tank #2  in my stack was also adorable in a more pronounced tie dye print (like the Kappa shirt above.) The overall styling is more traditional, with a wider band around a classic crew neck collar. The fabric is very soft, but a bit thicker than the other lightweight samples. This design is more boxy and it wears like a standard cotton tee. If you want a tank that's not too thin or too clingy, this style is for you.

Shirt #3 was a black muscle tank in a ultra lightweight fabric. Even more feathery soft than the coral shirt. The black shirt is made by BELLA and lighter than air. The black color keeps it from being too see-through. Really cool style and a top quality brand. 

And #4 was really nice shirt as well. Right in the "mid" range of weight fabric. A beautiful color, streamlined styling and a nice scoop neck. The perfect muscle tank for summer or bid day. Adorable. 

Muscle Tanks Bottomline

If your chapter loves the style and look of muscle tanks, you can't do any better than those from ABD! They offer a nice selection of styles, fabric weights and designs. Of course your tanks can be totally customized for your specific chapter. The screen printed design ideas are endless.

In my opinion, I loved the shirts that a tiny bit more heft to the fabric, but they all were really attractive. You can choose from extra lightweight, medium lightweight or soft standard tee shirt weight. Each style will require wearing something underneath since the armholes are so deep. Take that into consideration when you're ordering for your sisterhood.

And remember, muscle tanks aren't just for bid day. They make amazing swimsuit cover-ups too. Think about how terrific they would look for your next chapter retreat at the lake, or a fundraising paint run where sisters wear them over their sports bras. Whenever you rock them, be assured of top tier quality when you order a muscle tank from ABD!
