Tank Top Tuesday

Oh, kittens. Today, today is a special day. Today, in honor (celebration?) of the final three episodes of “The L Word” I have a treat for you. It is the first-ever Tank Top Tuesday-Off. That's right, tank top against tank top in a battle royal for sheer cotton hotness. While scanning my screencaps, I noticed that one group of ladies in particular gets the tanky toppy love from the costume department. And, to be honest, I couldn't think of a better trio to start Tank Top Tuesday-Off (as an added bonus, it sounds a little like we want to get their tank tops off...which admittedly isn't all that far from the truth). So, without further ado, I give you Bette vs. Shane vs. Tasha. And fight tank!

Bette
Shane
Tasha
Brutal, right? So, whose tank top reigns supreme? And, just in case of a split decision, I will consider a rematch.

shane's appeal (for me) has been gone for a while...she's a hairstylist, yet she seems to have had the same hair for what seems like 15 years...it's not working for me anymore so i can't get past that to see her tank...
BUT
i believe it's a tie between bette and tasha. they both have lovely arms and they always seem to be wearing tanks that accentuate their brown skin. plus they both carry themselves as badasses - check bette in that red tank during the self-defense class (pass a tissue 'cause i'm drooling).

jennifer and jennifer by far

no match at all

Tasha!

iampecola said...

It was a close contest--they both fill out their tank tops well--but I have to give the edge to Tasha.

Tasha's tanks are like Bette's powersuits.

Anonymous said...

Tasha. Bette, while delicious in a tank, can really pull off a suit (in more ways than one). And Shane, although I have a soft spot for her, well...her tank tops are always too droopy.

Tasha looks hot in a tank top, and it seems like it's natural to her on-screen personality. And those arms...!

Tasha's pretty incredible but Bette all the way!!!

Tasha! She is cut and beautiful and her tanks fit just right...delicious.

Can we have Jennifer and Rose battle for Last Tank Top Standing? Turkish oil would be helpful too...

Trihardist said...

Bette FTW.

danamitey said...

Although I believe it is soo close that a rematch is in order
I have to say that Tasha has a good lead.
I agree that Bette rocks a tank but rocks a suit more...and shane yes...is too "droopy" she is better without the tank
Tasha...is perfect fit for a tank

Pugs said...

Count me in the Tasha/Rose Rollins camp. Shane lost her appeal once she stopped eating. But Rose with that laugh and that smile and those eyes - oh my! Drool City here I come!

Anonymous said...

rematch between Tasha and Bette! I cant decide!
(but my heart will always belong to jennifer, of course)

Anonymous said...

Tasha for sure although that workout tanktop pic of Shane ain't half bad either... yum those arms. But Tasha definitely. Hair in a bun, perfect boobies and cut... winner.

Bette! Hands down! Tasha is hot in a tank top, but the contrast of Bette's power suits, and then suddenly there she is in a tank top, with those shoulders, and those collar bones... mmm. For The Win every time!

OMG, this was HOTT! I so wanted to vote for Bette/Jennifer. Not wanting to age myself, but Jennifer in the tank, in Flashdance.... But, my vote goes to Tasha. She is fine in a tank and they fit her so well. Love the shoulder/arm. My weak spot :)

Tasha, Tasha, Tasha.

I think Bette wins, hands down. Though Tasha comes in a close second and Shane a distant third because it always looks like she's wearing some gross fat man's tank tops.

TASHA.

The arms, the shoulders. The tank tops show that off very well.

It's close between J-Beals and Rose Rollins.

BUT.

I'm gonna have to go with Rose on this one. That woman knows how to sport a tank top.

melinda6499 said...

my vote goes for Tasha!!!! she fills that tank like no other! those arms and shoulders and that skin mmmmm god!! pure perfection!! TASHA FTW!!!

Anonymous said...

Tasha looks much better.

Elizabeth said...

Tasha! Nothing can beat Rose Rollins' beautiful arms and skin and... :D

I love Shane/Kate, but she is just too skinny, and the tank tops they've put her in lately have been too sheer and too droopy. Not attractive. And Jennifer Beals is great and all, but I've never really seen the appeal...

aj said...

tasha, hands down

Norma Desmond said...

Bette. Always Bette, for me.

pyewacket said...

I vote for a rematch too because I know there are more great tank top screen caps out there of all 3 women!

But my heart and all my other major organs vote for Bette...I have been wanting Jennifer to take her tank top off for years.

What?... Shane?
But no Tina tanks?

Allow me to remind you that Tina fills out a tank much better than Shane ever could:

Tina in Palm Springs

Tina at donor party

Tina on porch steps

p.s.
Dorothy - you have 7 links to 'Jodi' posts, but just two links to Laurel Holloman?

Not a Tina fan I take it, but surely you must appreciate LuH's courage in doing 'Two Girls', etc. yes?

My favorite tank top for Shane is the dark green one. It is well fitted and shows off her arms torso and hips which are my favorite parts of Shane.

These new tank tops are not doing her any favors. I still vote Shane. Then Tasha

Oh, Tasha, no contest. Though I wouldn't mind a rematch between Tasha and Bette. Nope. Not one bit.

Bette would normally win this hands down, but, by these particular pictures alone, Tasha wins it. I , too, think you need to do a rematch between the two!!!!

Heather said...

They all look great, but my vote goes to Tasha. Great idea for the tank off!

Natalie said...

TASHA! Rose Rollins is absolutely gorgeous.

and she would even give Bette a run for her money in the power suit department based on what she wore a couple of eps ago :)

g8rlane said...

As if there is any competition! Jennifer all the way! And another reason to be pissed at Mama Chaiken this season is that we haven't seen enough Bette in a tank top!

zooey said...

BETTE.

As much as I love Rose Rollins, Jennifer Beals really knocks the tank tops out of the park.

Steph said...

Damn it, if it was battle of all-round hotness, it'd be Shane, hands down.

But, as this a strict tank top only fight, my vote is with either Bette (Jennifer) or Tasha (Rose). And, damn, I think it might be Tasha.

SydneyWade said...

Bette Porter...without a doubt. Tasha is a close second but doesn't quite meet the hotness level that BP does.

bombasticbully said...

"I've always been in love with Bette."

Really, I have been...

Bette! Bette! Bette!

Then again, my world revolves around Bette and Tina, so I really haven't taken notice of Tasha. That says a lot, doesn't it? :)

Penny Cillin said...

Jennifer Beals, for sure. Oh, those HOT arms. Mmmm. Tasha comes in at a close second, because she is awesomely hot in her tank topiness. And poor Shane is a distant third. Poor, poor Shane.

Anonymous said...

Shane and Tasha are in a galaxy, far, far away from Bette. Shane, really? Heh. They're no competition for Bette/JB.
I still have hopes that *before* TLW ends, Laurel Holloman will be featured on TTT. Now, that's a woman who can rock a tank top.
Seriously... Shane?

The fact that Jennifer is successfully competing against two women that are 15 years her junior is freakin' amazing. Jennifer has a self awareness that is so sexy. Jennifer has that unbeatable combo of understated sexiness and athletic fitness plus she's just stunning. Rose has a "soft" beauty. She is lovely. KM is just too damn skinny for my taste although I can see her charm for some.
