A tank dress is easily one of the best items women over 40 can wear during the summer! It’s easy to throw on with sandals or sneakers and be ready in seconds! Or dress it up for a sexy date night with strappy heels. Plus, depending on the style, tank dresses are very flattering. But the best thing about a tank dress? You can wear a regular or racerback bra! Nobody (especially women over 40) wants complicated undergarments when our lives are as busy as they are! Find my favorite tank dresses for summer below…
#1 | Tie-Dye Tank Dress
This dress by Michael Stars is AMAZING! I love the hot pink…it’s one of my favorite colors. But the best part is the white along the sides of the dress is strategically placed to shave inches off your waist…it’s SO slimming. I’m not kidding…it’s magical! I also love the midi length (I’m 5’4” for reference), which is very appropriate for women over 40 who don’t like to show too much leg! You can wear a regular racerback bra with this dress…see one of my favorites here.
#2 | A-Line Tank Dress
What I love about this tank dress is the A-line silhouette. It’s fitted through the top for support and then starts to flare out around the hips making it super forgiving in all the right places. This silhouette will mask bigger hips, butt, and thighs. The square neckline is also very flattering and unique. And can we talk about the length…? Yay for longer skirts! This exact dress is sold out but I linked a similar option!
This tank dress is more fitted, but it’s SOOOOO good! It’s a waffle knit material, but still breathable and it’s also midi length and has a cool racerback. I love the contrast between the black/gray material on the seams and the body. It’s sold out right now but I linked a similar option!
I featured this dress in my work from home outfit video. It’s so comfortable and I love that it hits below the knee. I threw on a cardigan with it to stay warm around the house but it’s perfect with just sneakers for a casual day out this summer!
