The tank top, a sleeveless shirt with low neck and shoulder straps, got its name from trendsetting women.
It was 1912. Swimming pools were called swimming tanks and women were allowed to swim in the Olympic Games for the first time. The 27 female Olympic swimmers were deemed “immodest” by news outlets and spectators because of their sleeveless attire. These "immodest" tops were named tank tops because they were worn in swimming tanks.
Join us to continue the immodesty!
