TRM's Christmas Gift Guide :: Soybu Performance Apparel {Giveaway Ends 11/23}

 
Since I'm a mom and often quite busy, a simple, on-the-go look is crucial so I don't have to fuss with my wardrobe in the morning. I'm sure many of you can relate! I've found an amazing company that has the perfect performance apparel to get you out the door and even works to transition you to your morning yoga routine (without needing to change!). Guys, are you listening? Your wife/fiance/girlfriend/mom would LOVE to open a box of some yummy apparel from Soybu!

Soybu performance apparel is inspired by life and deisgned with the active, stylish woman in mind. They offer flattering fits, superior quality, and eco-friendly fibers like organic cotton, bamboo, soy, and recycled polyester. Whether you're looking for stylish performance apparel, sporty lounge wear, or a comfortable on-the-go ensemble, Soybu has you covered with sustainability, responsibility and exceptional pricing.

I received the Lotus Pant, Nirvana Hood, and the Full Circle Tank. Each one is made from 44% Conventional Polyester, 44% Recycled Polyester, and 12% Spandex. Browsing online I thought the Lotus Pant and Nivana Hood were a slicker, perhaps shiny, material. However, they are a matte black color, and feel like a super soft brushed cotton. The material is also relatively thin, although very high quality and breathable making them an amazing option for performance apparel. Heck, the more I wear them the more I feel like I should go work out! Baby steps, baby steps. :) The sizing is definitely correct for each one. I requested a size small in each piece and each one fits very well. For reference, I'm generally a size 2 or 4, 5' 7" and 120 pounds.

The Lotus Pant is a very comfortable style of bottoms with a medium rise, fitted thigh and slight bootcut hem. Soybu uses flatlock seams which means optimal comfort. The seams down the side of the legs are actually placed a little more towards your backside for a very flattering, rear-accentuating fit! The contoured waistband is a no-flip style so it will stay where it's supposed to be - finally. I actually have a very hard time finding workout/yoga-style pants so I was actually very surprised to see how well the Lotus Pants work for me!

The Nirvana Hood is a slender fitting hoodie with curved seams for, once again, a very flattering fit. Hoodies tend to be short in the arms and body for me. But this one is great! The bottom cuff hits at my hits and doesn't ride up despite vigorous activity. The wrist cuffs are actually cut extra-long but can be easily rolled up if you need them shorter. The material makes this hoodie a great option for a little extra warmth without hindering activity or motion. My only complaint about this hoodie is that front pockets are a bit small for keeping your hands warm and won't necessarily hold your phone and keep it from falling out. The website description describes invisible zippered pockets but I have looked all over this hoodie and there are none to be found! Otherwise, I really like this hoodie!
The Full Circle Tank is a beautiful top. I received it in white which was the only color available at the time other than black. Right now I also see it available in Kale green and Periwinkle blue now too! The white is not necessarily completely see through, but enough to make me want to wear an actual bra underneath. I'm small-chested though so I practically disappear in any bra-less top anyway! However, the shelf bra feature is very supportive, and even hugs my small chest instead of creating a big gap. I love the back which has somewhat of a razor style, allowing for more range of motion and comfort. The Full Circle Tank has a flattering and comfortable fit, plenty of length, and stays put!

I'm really impressed with how Soybu apparel fits. No straight, bulky seams and the spandex adds just enough stretch for a smooth look against the body. Everything seems to be perfectly contoured and shaped with optimal comfort and a flattering fit in mind. I also love how Soybu can go from performance apparel to sporty lounge wear at home with ease. The pieces I received are versatile and have such a luxurious feel that makes you feel great! I would highly recommend Soybu apparel as Christmas gifts for all the ladies on your list this year. They'll love you for it!
