Screen Shot 2013-06-06 at 8.02.34 AMJust like apples at the grocery there is an ever growing selection of trendy yoga clothes that can be found. We picked this one from Green Apple Active because of its eco-friendliness. It’s a V-neck, A-line cami sustainably made from organic cotton & bamboo, with just enough spandex to hold it’s shape. This mix of materials ends up as a very soft and pleasingly snug final product. The built in shelf bra has removable bra cup inserts that help achieve full coverage. The detail I like the best is the “key hole” back. Although it comes up higher on the back, it does not restrict movement and adds just a bit of uniqueness.

It’s performance is great in a Hatha style yoga class, with minimal heat and a slower paced class and handled well during inversions. After recently wearing it to a Vinyasa/Ashtanga class where we were constantly moving and flowing, it did begin to ride up a bit. But has enough length that it didn’t bare my mid-section. Thanks to the mix of cotton and bamboo, the cami soaked up all the sweat and didn’t stink. The colors have stayed true and held it;s shape after washing. As always – I NEVER put my yoga clothes in the dryer, so there has been no shrinkage. :-) Also, remember to remove the built in bra padding before laying out to dry so they don’t end up curled and lose shape.

This is definitely one sweet apple, no Nutella required. YUM!

Love & Light,

Edith
