Long gym tops that don't ride up??

I need new tops for going to the gym including spin, circuits and kettle bell classes (I'm on a mission!) I've bought some wicking tops but they all seem to ride up to expose the fat belly I'm trying to get rid off so I spend a lot of the class pulling them down!

Any ideas for nice long tops that will stay put? I'm happy with tops or vests or is layering the way to go?

I use this for yoga. The band on the bottom keeps it in place ish. It rides up a bit in downward facing dog but it never shows the skin above my shorts.

I have a karrimor racer back running vest in black. It survives a tough kettlebell session without much ride. Not so good when running though, even though that's what it's for!

I have this that works nicely

or what about this type?

Saw a gym top in Next yesterday that had a cord round the hem with a toggle to tighten it, that might suit? It had a built-in soft bra which is no good for any kind of high-impact workout, but I guess you could wear a regular sports bra too.

I've solved it from the other direction by wearing bottoms designed for yoga with a very high extended roll up waist band. That way any top does the job. Sweaty Betty does them in a Capri style.

Sweaty Betty athlete vests are great for not riding up.

Jenny Falconer XPG vest tops with a drawstring bottom. Available from Debenhams on line. So comfortable and light to wear. Also very flattering.

Sweaty Betty Mantra vests are great: come in a variety of colours, long in the body, ribbed and don't ride up. They also wash well and last for ages.

I have this Nike running dress which I wear to spin, run and Pilates. It says it's a dress but I'm 5'9" and it is more like a long top on me. The draw cord above the skirt section keeps it from riding up and it is really comfortable.

Thank you all, lots of suggestions! Will have a look through after having had yet another flashing moment at they gym this morning! Once my flab has gone I'll be buying one of them teeny tiny crop tops, haha!
