What we call a swimming pool today, used to be called a swimming "tank" back then. Hence a "top" meant for wearing in the "tank" was named as tank top. Racerbacks are specifically the tanks with a T cut at the back allowing for a greater arm movement in sports and athletics. From their introduction in the early 1900s, the racerback tank tops have had their fair share of limelight. From Sarah Connor in Terminator 2, to Lara Croft have donned the racerback. Even male characters such as Stallone in Rambo 2 to Vin Diesel in FF series have worn one.
