Review – Kylo Ren tank top

One of my first Force Friday purchases was this Kylo Ren tank top from Hot Topic. I paid US$24.50 (as part of a ‘buy 2, get 1 free promotion), though you’ll need to check for available sizes. I bought mine in XS, it measures approximately 44cm across the chest (underarm to underarm), 43.5cm across the lower edge (straight across, side seam to side seam), and 54.5cm from front neckline to front hem. The fabric is 100% polyester, which is very slightly see-through when wearing bright colours underneath. The armholes are cut smaller than other muscle cut tank tops I’ve bought recently, so it doesn’t show undergarments at the side. Both the front and back lower hems are curved, which is a nice style. I was drawn to the strong, dark pink of this design (an interesting choice rather than red), and the smoky affect around the bottom – I haven’t found this artwork used on other apparel yet. So much of the apparel released on Force Friday used the same stock promotion imagery, so it was great to see the Hot Topic range use different designs – this top was in my first order that day!
