Can anyone recommend longer length running tops for warmer weather?

I had amazing advice from here on running clothes for winter a few months ago (am loving the Hind running top that CMOTDibbler recommended) and I'm now back for some advice as the weather warms up.

Does anyone know of a running top that is long enough to cover my bum, is sleeveless and doesn't have one of those stupid integrated bra shelf things? Not being pink would be an advantage, too. It's particularly bad as I run with one of those belt thing's to carry my phone and keys, and it rides down (it's a bit big for me) and my top rides up and my leggings slide under my stomach and it's all most unappealing and I want it covered up!

I'm currently wearing LIdl leggings and an old walking top which is at least wicking, but is rather short, with the the Hind jumper on top. But that's now feeling a bit warm.

Why not something like this?
Have you trawled sports direct & primark?

Addidas? or Gore? I haven't tried either of them on though.
In the summer I wear skapris (courtesy of Aldi) for bum coverage, so slightly shorter tops are OK

I have some nice Ronhill ones in purple which cover my bum and my Helly Hansen t shirts are quite long too. I'm 6ft 1 so need long clothes!

I've looked in Sports Direct, TK Max and the local running shop. They are all either long and flappy or short and tight. The few that are right have integral bra thingies which just get in the way of my sports bra and look ridiculous. I'm not tall, so it shouldn't be hard, but I combine narrow shoulders / back with needing serious space for norkage, so I can't just buy men's ones.

I'll have a look at all your suggestions right now. Skapris might be an option, or I think I saw some shorts that had tight legging style shorts with a looser bit over the top, which would also work.

Trail shorts have that double layer effect. Or you can wear shorts over capris/lycra shorts. I have to do this with a lovely pair of tights that dh bought me that are distressingly see through.

You can cut the annoying shelf bit out easily btw, I've done this with tri suits

Thanks for all the advice, I've just ordered a Ronhill vest top from which apparently comes up long. And I may have also seen some trail shorts in the sale and added those on as they're a bit of a bargain...

The Sweaty Betty athlete vests are long. I get them to cover my bum.

I've got a Nike dri fit summer vest that's loose and long. It's blue too smile

Was fairly cheap from jd sports I think
