The sweltering heat and humidity of NYC have me on the hunt for airy, lightweight tops. Naturally, I’m drawn to Everlane’s Air collection, consisting of tees and tanks crafted from fine, breezy cotton. Over the years, I’ve tested various items from the Air line, so this article compiles those reviews and includes my recent try-ons.
A heads up on sizing: Typically, I lean towards a size small for tops. However, Everlane tends to have a roomier fit, leading me to opt for an XS. Thus, when I mention “true to Everlane sizing,” I’m referring to a size smaller than my usual. Additionally, this review is tailored from a petite viewpoint.

The Air Oversized Crew Tee

What Everlane Says: Made of drapey, super-light cotton, the Oversized Crew Neck Air Tee has an intentionally oversized fit and longer sleeves for a cool, relaxed look.
Sizing & Fit: True to its name, it’s oversized. I initially tried on the XXS, which seemed to fit better in the body, though that took away from the oversized look. But the XXS was snug in the arms. XS seems like the right size, so this is true to my Everlane size.
Details: As you can see, the material is on the sheer side — at least in white. The shape is quite wide, which seems to lead to excess material around the armpits. The length is also long on petite me. There’s a good deal of material to tuck in, though it’s also thin, so not a big deal. But it’s not the ideal tee for me.
The Air Muscle Tank

What Everlane Says: Made of our lightest, most breathable cotton, the Air Muscle Tank is complete with a high curved neckline, shoulder-width sleeves, and a relaxed boxy shape.
Sizing & Fit: True to Everlane sizing.
Details: There’s a slight puckering out at the armpits on me. Not sure what that’s about. Maybe because I have more of a bust than the model? Or my shoulders are not as wide? Seems like a decent muscle tank overall.
