Pick your preference before you settle on a price point. For runners who like tanks with built-in bras for extra support, you'll want to splurge. They'll have a better support system and will be made with a higher quality of fabric that won't shrink after washing -- a common issue with these tops, says Matthews. When shopping for T-shirts and long-sleeve shirts, you can definitely save. And look in unexpected places to get the best deal. Stores from Costco to Target now sell lines with sweat-wicking material at lower prices.
