If there's one thing you can never own too many of, it's basics. We're talking crisp white tees, sleek black camis, and versatile white tank tops—basically everything we're going to rely on now that layering season is underway. However, these crisp ivory pieces sometimes pose a problem: They can be sheer and see-through if you don't pick the right fabric. Because we shouldn't have to worry about our undergarments showing through—no one wants a wardrobe malfunction like that, right?— we decided to go on a mission to find the absolute best non-see-through white tank tops on the Internet.
Our method? We used our knowledge of brands known to churn out top-quality tank tops (aka The Range, Agolde, La Ligne), plus what we know about the materials that typically tend to be sheerer than others. Ribbed-knit finds are your best friend for full coverage, as is thick cotton and stretchy, workout-friendly nylon. Whenever you buy online, just make sure to check out the material in the product description. And, of course, you can count on our below roundup of the best non-see-through white tank tops to serve you well as you enter layering season. Shop the best of the best below.
