Indigo Blossom Organic Yoga Bra
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 organic cotton and indigo are beautiful things! Our organic cotton top is crafted from organic cotton so you don't have to worry about exercising and sweating in something synthetic and chemical-ridden. The organic cotton is certified organic and fair trade OEKO TEX (fancy speak for it's awarded for being ethical and pesticide-free). On top of this pure and all-natural goodness is... the INDIGO DYE! OMG, let me tell you about the magic of indigo! It's a plant dye with a rich cultural tradition (it goes back thousands of years), and it's so safe that when I'm through dyeing it I use what's left to fertilize our garden. It's pure magic in every way, and you can just relax and enjoy this top knowing every inch of it is organic and pure. If you're looking for the holy grail of sustainable yoga tops, this is it!
WHY THIS BRA TOP IS SLIGHTLY LESS AWESOME
It contains 8% 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 organic cotton is grown in the USA! The organic cotton is knitted into fabric in Los Angeles, CA. 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!)
92% organic cotton 8% spandex, 100% cotton threads, organic indigo dye, water-based non-toxic ink.
BORING (BUT IMPORTANT!) INFORMATION
This top is THICK cotton so we didn't go with the double layer on it like our eucalyptus tops. It can definitely be worn instead of a bra if you're up to a C cup. BUT you know what ladies, if you're bigger than a C and wanna rock this without a bra please DO IT. It's comfy and supportive without being too compressive. Boobs need to breathe.
It's me, Hayley, modeling the clothes! I am wearing size S and I am 5’1”, 26” 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!
Wow. Beautiful color. Beautifully sustainable.
As soon as I put this on I thought “I am definitely ordering from Purusha People again!” This, along with the indigo bells, were my first purchase and they are comfortable, thick, well made, unique, and fit so well. The top is stunning with the print on the back. I have been phasing out synthetic clothing from my wardrobe in general, and have found the style and quality I am looking for in activewear from Purusha People, thank you!!
I love the material and the color is BEAUTIFUL.
Love this top! It is definitely on the tighter size because there’s not a lot of elastic, but it’s still comfortable. Love the product, just wish I got it sooner!!
Love this top. It’s so beautiful and will be great for summertime and working out. I did go with my true size and it was definitely on the tighter size. There’s not a lot of elastic there’s not a lot of wiggle room. Overall love the product!
