Juniper Moon Eucalyptus Yoga Bra Top
WHEN SHOULD YOU WEAR IT?
Everyday. I'm not kidding! I've sworn off bras at this point and ONLY wear these. If all my Purusha yoga bra tops are in the laundry no bra is being worn that day. If you feel subconscious showing your tummy, this little bra top is like your secret fun piece underneath, and somehow it makes you feel super positive about your bod as it flatters in all the right places. I'm a breastfeeding mama with a C cup (btw my boobs are NOT perky) and I can still wear my bra top jogging and get super comfy support. Can you tell how much I love this item?!
WHY THIS BRA TOP IS AWESOME
Bras/crops tops made from a tree and organic cotton are beautiful things! Our Empath top is crafted from eucalyptus tree wood pulp so you don't have to worry about exercising and sweating in something synthetic and chemical-ridden. Don't worry though, eucalyptus feels like silk and doesn't at all resemble tree bark ;) The organic cotton is certified organic and fair trade OEKO TEX (fancy speak for it's awarded for being ethical and pesticide-free).
WHY THIS BRA TOP IS SLIGHTLY LESS AWESOME
It contains 6% spandex, which is a petroleum-based ingredient. Without it, your bra top wouldn't stretch and no one- you or the planet- would benefit from a product nobody wants because we refused to add a stretchy element to it. Until we can all exercise in loose woven flood pants and tunics (unlikely), or until someone invents a plant-based stretch fiber (yay science!), this is the best we've got. So much better than 100% plastic though, don't you think?
WHERE DOES IT COME FROM + WHO MADE IT?
Our eucalyptus is sourced from sustainable tree farms in Austria and neighboring countries, where the trees are grown for fibers so you don't have to fret about deforestation. The organic cotton is certified fair trade from India. The eucalyptus and organic cotton is knitted into fabric in Canada. Nadya, my best friend, and my super talented seamstress, hand sews each and every piece in her home in the desert in Southern California. I (Hayley), hand dye and hand screen print everything in my basement in Northwest Connecticut. (Very, very glamorous, I know!)
66% eucalyptus tencel, 28% organic cotton, 6% spandex, 100% cotton threads, low impact dye, water-based non-toxic ink.
BORING (BUT IMPORTANT!) INFORMATION
This top is DOUBLE LAYERED! Yes, cap locks for this! I can't begin to tell you what a game-changer two layers of delicious plant-based goodness is! It's seamless on the inside so it's ultra-comfy and mildly compressive to give you support while still feeling relaxed. It's pretty much the dream top.
One of my other BFF's is modeling the clothing- it’s Nicole! She's wearing size S and is 5’8”, 27” waist, 34" bust. It runs true to size. Size down if you want a more compressive top.
THE LAST BIT OF SUPER IMPORTANT INFORMATION (I KNOW, IT'S A LOT, SORRY!)
This piece ships in 4-8 weeks because we don't carry ANY inventory. Don't freak out, I PROMISE it will be worth the wait. Think of it as bespoke yoga wear, custom made for you. But, why?! Cue crying emoji. Because: 1. We can't afford to stock multiple items in 9 sizes for 40 different styles (we're handmade y'all, not a factory!), and 2. It's better for the environment to produce less and not make a bunch of stuff without knowing if anyone will ever buy it. The top harm to the environment in the fashion industry is throwaway fashion, so we're avoiding this all together by only bringing clothes into this world that people really want. By the time your clothes are done you will be amazed at your patience and probably feel pretty proud that Amazon Prime hasn't destroyed your ability to wait for something special! Go you!
Love Love Love
I’m almost 40, breast fed and wear a size 34 D bra and just figured I would wear a bra underneath. I am so impressed by the support it offers! I’d still wear a bra to a super intense yoga class or for running but for regular exercise and everyday use it really is enough support. I love it!
i love this top. i love that it can be worn for yoga, other exercise, or just out on the town with some jeans. i am SO happy to have found purusha people because my skin reacts badly to polyester, but it's definitely loving the natural fibers. also the color is amazing!!
Totally love it. Comfortable and the fabric is wonderful.
You can tell this top is made with love and care, it's absolutely beautiful quality. Stitching is sturdy and the material is BEYOND soft and comfortable. I found the fit to be accurate for the size chart and have no issues wearing this top for yoga. Highly recommend! <3
