About the top (from the site): designed to maximize both form and function. Stylish contrast stitching adds a subtle touch of flair to our white performance T. Mesh panels provide superior ventilation and an added touch of style. Seams are sewn flat and offset from areas that are prone to chafe. Moisture wicking fabric ensures you'll stay cool while working up a sweat.

Thoughts after wearing: The top was really comfortable and didn't bother me at all while I was running on the treadmill, on the elliptical or stretching and lifting weights. When I wasn't super-focused on my workout, I was still a little self conscious about the sheer fabric but I understand how they would help with breathability in hot weather. I definitely didn't get too hot like I sometimes do when working out indoors wearing a short sleeve top. I did like the v-neck design as crew necks often bother me during workouts. Overall I liked the top and will definitely wear it again. I may take it with me to Florida this weekend to try out when I go running outdoors (since it will be warm enough that I won't have to wear 3 layers!).
Thoughts about Go Girl Sports: The company, based in Arizona, was started by two friends, who are both athletes and passionate runners, went live two years ago but has been their work for four years. Right now, I think the offerings are pretty limited in design, but they are planning to add shorts and capris this year. I'd love to see a few more styles of tops, too, as right now there is only one tank and the back is completely sheer. I did notice, as I was writing this, that they've added more colors from when I picked out the top, so that's really great to see. I do love that they're making comfortable workout wear and that they're doing what they love. So I wish them tons of luck and I hope you'll check out their Facebook page HERE.
