We're firmly in the dog days of summer — how are you tackling the heat?
For all the days you have to do be out and about and not, say, wearing a bathing suit and lazing in the pool, we recommend an easy, breezy tank — ideally one that's flowy enough to not cling to your body and make you even less comfortable than you already are. Amazon's No. 1 bestselling tank top does just that, and it's just $17.
The Xieerduo Women's Tank Top is made out of a soft and stretchy polyester, rayon and spandex blend, which makes it perfectly lightweight and breathable for the summer heat. It has a flowy sharkbite hem, and is long enough to be tucked into shorts, skirts and jeans, or worn over a pair of leggings.
Available in 19 colors and ranging in size from small to 3XL, there's bound to be a variety on hand with your name on it. Shoppers in particular rave about how flattering this tank is. As one of them put it: "Love this tank! Very comfortable and don't have to worry about showing anything, rolls or other. Goes with everything. Bought two colors!"
Plus, unlike inferior tanks, it's not overly revealing, which makes it perfect for, among other occasions, wearing over a sports bra at the gym. "This is a great upgrade to a typical tank top," notes one of more than 7,000 five-star reviewers. "It offers more coverage in the shoulder and thicker material. It is fitted in the shoulder area and upper chest but flows freely in the belly. I tuck the front in just a bit and it’s the perfect cool casual summer look."
Most importantly? It's totally opaque. "Not sheer at all!" a shopper reported. "Even went back and bought the white one, and with my nude bra can’t see through it!!!"
One happy customer declares that it easily stands up to the sweltering clime of the Sunshine State. "This tank top is everything I wanted for my morning walks. Lightweight but not too thin, a little stretchy but not clingy. The material is soft and breathable, perfect for summer in Florida! It washes and dries very well, going through both machines with no fading, shrinking, pilling, etc. I especially like the V-neck and the little notch in the seams at the hips (believe me, I don't want to accentuate my hips)."

A family in eastern China filed a police report after their two-year-old daughter mysteriously fell to her death from the eighth floor of a residential building. It happened after the toddler was taken to that floor because she was accidentally left behind in a lift by her nanny. According to the June 14 surveillance footage from Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang province, the toddler, nicknamed Little Cherry, was left in the lift by her nanny, surnamed Wu. The woman was engrossed in her mobile phon
MUMBAI (Reuters) -The Indian rupee hit record lows against the U.S. currency on Tuesday after higher oil prices raised concerns of sustained inflation, although intermittent dollar selling by the central bank helped limit losses. India imports more than two-thirds of its oil requirements, and higher crude prices add to the country's trade and current account deficits (CAD) and hurt the rupee by pushing up imported inflation. Oil prices rallied for a third day as major producers Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates looked unlikely to be able to boost output significantly, while political unrest in Libya and Ecuador added to supply concerns.
NATO allies will boost high readiness forces to "well over 300,000" troops as they strengthen their defences in response to Russia's war on Ukraine, alliance chief Jens Stoltenberg said Monday. Leaders from the US-led military alliance will meet in Madrid this week for what Stoltenberg said would be a "transformative" summit as it grapples with the fallout of Moscow's invasion of its pro-Western neighbour. Stoltenberg said allies would bolster some of their battle group formations along NATO's eastern flank "up to brigade level" -- tactical units of around 3,000-5,000 troops -- and ratchet up high readiness numbers to "well over 300,000". In addition, more heavy weaponry including air defence systems would be shifted forwards and forces pre-assigned to defend specific NATO members on the alliance's exposed eastern edge. "This constitutes the biggest overhaul of our collective defence and deterrence since the Cold War," Stoltenberg said. NATO currently has a high readiness force of around 40,000 troops under its command, but the more than 300,000 troops are expected to form a larger pool that the alliance could tap into in the case of an emergency. A NATO official said the new system would be in place next year and improve the alliance's "ability to respond at very short notice for any contingency" with land, sea, air and cyber assets. Stoltenberg also said leaders would agree to bolster NATO's essential support to embattled Ukraine, whose President Volodymyr Zelensky is set to call in via video link. - US spearhead - That package would include "substantial deliveries" of gear like secure communications, anti-drone systems and fuel, and help Ukraine over the longer term to pivot to using more advanced NATO-standard arms. This support is separate from weaponry that NATO members -- spearheaded by the United States -- are already funnelling to Ukraine, including anti-tank rockets, artillery and air defence to help it hold back Russia's onslaught. NATO has been building up its forces in the east of the alliance since Moscow first moved into Ukraine with the annexation of Crimea in 2014. The alliance has rushed tens of thousands more troops to the region since Moscow launched its full-scale invasion on February 24. NATO now has eight battle groups across its eastern members and Stoltenberg said some of these -- likely in the Baltics and Poland -- would be bolstered to "brigade level". Jittery leaders in the Baltics have pushed for major and permanent troop deployments that could stop the Kremlin's forces at NATO's border. Germany has said it would take the lead on a new brigade in Lithuania -- where it already has forces -- but most of those troops would be permanently stationed back on home soil. Britain's defence minister has said his country will likely propose a similar set-up for Estonia -- where it commands the existing battle group. Stoltenberg said he expected other allies to announce forces dedicated to protecting specific eastern members at the summit that starts on Tuesday evening. del/dc/jm
Opener Deepak Hooda scored an unbeaten 47 on Sunday as India hunted down 109 runs to take a seven-wicket win in a match reduced to 12 overs a side due to rain. Malik, who lit up this year's Indian Premier League and sent down three of the five fastest deliveries of the competition, marked his arrival in Malahide with a 92 mph (148 kph) thunderbolt but his only over cost 14 runs. "When you play for India for the first time, and the journey he has taken, it's important to give such a bowler and such a talent time," said Pandya.
South Korea’s decision to join a US-led pact on mineral supply helps satisfy a “definite need” to cut dependency on China for key resources, including rare earths, analysts said. Securing key resources has become a core task for major economies around the world, as minerals are a crucial element incorporated into cutting-edge technologies, green energy and national defence industries. Countries have traditionally relied on China as it not only holds the largest amount of rare earth reserves, but
Washington wants China to pressure Russia into ending the war in Ukraine, but that does not mean the US will be soft on Beijing when it comes to lifting trade sanctions or extending other economic benefits, a senior US national security official said on Tuesday. US President Joe Biden has kept in place tens of billions of US dollars’ worth of punitive trade sanctions on Chinese imports imposed by former president Donald Trump under a US-China trade war that started in 2018. Recently, however, th

Hong Kong’s outgoing leader Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor has made her last comments on social media as chief executive and will shut down her accounts once she steps down on Thursday.

When social worker Lo Kin-hei was elected chairman of the Democratic Party in December 2020 at the age of 36, he became the youngest leader to head the city’s largest opposition group. But there was little to celebrate. For the first time in its 26-year history, Hong Kong’s largest pro-democracy party had no representatives in the Legislative Council. Opposition parties were still reeling from the national security law Beijing imposed in June that year.Do you have questions about the biggest top
