I have several of these; pretty much all I wear in the Arizona heat! I typically wear one in the morning for my early morning and workout time, then shower and wear another color for the rest of the day. And occasionally I wash them. You seriously cannot smell anything on my workout shirt after having been worn a month straight for HIIT workouts. So even though they are more expensive, they are well worth it as in the end as my laundry mountain has turned into a hill, which also saves on time, water, detergent, and electricity. So very Earth friendly, too. Something very important to me. Oh, then there is the soft and comfy aspect, too ;-). Did I mention how much I love these tank tops???
