Hard Tail

Hard Tail Logo
Hard Tail® believes that real progress goes hand-in-hand with the empowerment of women everywhere.

Twenty-five years ago, founders Dick and Patty Cantrell, launched Hard Tail®, a pioneering lifestyle and active-wear line celebrating female athleticism.

At its core: a girls-can-do-anything philosophy, inspired by the couple's three daughters. Their vision was not only to create an innovative brand rooted in relaxed California living, but also one that would motivate young women to defy stereotypes, break barriers, and achieve their dreams.

Found in a variation of fun tie-dye color schemes and patterns, yoga pants, dresses, tanks and even bras saturate the line for an iconic workout identity.

With unshakeable patriotism and unforgettable style, you’ll love the way you look and feel all workout long. Proudly made in the USA, Hard Tail® offers a lightweight and easy transition from pre- to post-work out looks. Created from a signature cotton and Lycra® blend that promotes soft and comfortable wear, the Fold-Over Flare Pant, the brand’s best seller, among many other styles, makes it a must-have for hot yoga outfits.

What started as a small company working out of the Cantrell's Los Angeles home in 1992 has evolved into an internationally-renowned, family-owned and operated business, recognized as much for its focus on California manufacturing and classic designs. Hard Tail® is committed to strong females everywhere.

Sexy Long Skinny Tee

Love this Tee. I disagree with the previous posts about sizing. I actually think it runs a little big but love it nevertheless. I could have probably purchased a small versus a medium but it is a great fit. Nice and LONG and the best part about it is the fact the arms are so long. I always have a hard time finding long sleeves that are long enough. You can scrunch them up a bit if they are too long. I am 5'8" 135 lbs 36DD and, again, I purchased the medium but I could have worn a small as well. Highly recommend.

My favourite most comfy & soft tank. It’s great for layering under long skinny tees with leggings & covers your bottom. I want one in every color.

They fit fine (5'5", 130# = Medium) and are super cute, but the ties on the backs of my legs would drive me nuts. Had to return them.

I like the hardtail line and have two pair of yoga pants in medium. I'm 5'7" 128 and the mediums in this pant were too small for me. I've sent them back for a large.

I love these pants. They are crazy comfortable. I’m between a size 6 and 8 and ordered the medium. They fit well. I maybe could do the small for a less baggy fit. They are made of rayon so wrinkle easily but the wrinkles come out pretty quickly once you put them on. I got the plum color and it’s beautiful.

Perfect fit for me. I ordered 3 v neck and 3 round neck. I loved the length of the sleeve because I can never get shirts with sleeves long enough except some Free People. It does cling, but I scrunch it up and it covers any little bulges. I’m 5’11, 145 and 74 years old. Both the large and medium fit well. I like sleeves tighter to show off well toned arms, so the medium was great but the large was good too. Looks great with jeans and cargo pants.

These pants are very comfortable and flattering if you have a big bum/hourglass figure..Im 5'2, 30" waist 40" hip/bubble butt and the small fits perfectly. Their long enough for my boots too.

Hard to tell with leggings sometimes - but comfortable - although while they are capris - I am 5’3 and there was a little bit of a flare at calf level - not bad as I could pull up a bit

I ordered a medium based on an earlier review and am very happy with the fit. While still generous in the body, the fitted sleeves balance out the look. I am 5'9" 175 lbs.

I love this top! It’s perfect with leggings or skinny jeans! Super comfy, and great fabric! I purchased a medium since it is a tighter style! Fits perfectly! I would highly recommend buying this top!

I really like this top but I'm returning it because it runs really small. HardTail makes great yoga and comfy clothing, but I'm 5'6" and a small 4, but it gripped my body. I was looking for something that was a little looser, flowed just a bit.

Feels very nice. Good material. Colors true to photo . My medium is about 32" long at the inseam, so I had it tailored up to 30".

I’m usually a size 2/4 and have to get a medium in hard tail bottoms for them to be remotely comfortable. But I do love their tie dye looks.

I love this skirt! I am a true size 6 (5'10, 140 lbs) and I originally bought the medium based on the size chart recommendation. It was way too big. I exchanged the medium for a small, and that was much better. I possibly could have even gone with an xs, but decided to stick with the small. Love the color and the length. It's very comfy and so cute! Would definitely recommend!
