Prana Kira Top : A Fun Twist A Workout Tank

The Prana Kira Top lured me in right away with its velvety soft fabric and fun design. Then it won me over with it's performance through all 90 minutes of a challenging yoga class.

When I slipped the Prana Kira Top over my arms and shoulders, I was initially confused because the racer back part of the tank top is designed with a twist, which I didn’t realize at first (I thought I'd put it on wrong!). Once the top was on, I caught my reflection in the mirror during yoga class and I discovered that the twist falls right between my shoulder blades, accenting my upper back in quite an appealing way.

I’ve been trying a new yoga studio in Jackson, WY that has a lot of different class offerings, including Ashtanga and hot yoga. I’ve worn my Prana Kira Top on several occasions now, and have absolutely loved how it feels and fits. The softness of the micropoly fabric can’t be overstated; I wish I had sheets and a bathrobe made of the stuff. The lining of the interior shelf bra is also brushed with a soft material, so the top just made me melt into comfort every time I put it on.

The front of the Prana Kira Top is just as cute as the back. The crossover neckline and ruching at the bust combine for a feminine, flattering fit. Because I’m small-busted, crossover necklines often don’t work well for me. However, the Kira Top is different because is has plenty of fabric overlap at the bust and the crossover part isn’t low-cut. The top felt totally secure and very supportive even through all of my various bends, inversions, and twists. Asana away!

I like the racer back style of the Kira Top because it allows me to move my arms and shoulders freely while the rest of the tank hugs my body without riding up or moving around. When I"m in the groove, flowing during my Ashtanga class, I appreciated the ease of motion of the Prana Women’s Kira Top. It also breathed and wicked moisture well during my warm yoga classes – although it, along with every other item of clothing and person in the room, did not stay so dry during 90 minutes of truly hot yoga.

The Prana Kira Top is available for Women in Meadowbook, Rose, Black, and White in sizes XS-XL. It fit me perfectly true to size, with enough length to keep my midriff covered through all my various bends and lunges. Check out my review of Prana's Crissy Knicker.

Bottom Line: The Prana Kira Top is luxuriously soft, with an attractive, form-flattering design that keeps me looking good and feeling blissful during my yoga classes. L.S. (Feb 2012)
