Moon Spell Organic 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 organic cotton are beautiful things! Our Moon Phase 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).
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, low impact 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.
My sister-friend is modeling the clothing- it’s Robyn! She's wearing size S and is 5’7”, 27” waist, 35” 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!
It was a long wait for this top and it was worth every second of it. Knowing how much time, care, and kindness went into the production of it is so valuable to me. It fits exactly like I wanted it to and is even better quality than I could have hopped for. So glad I bought this bra and I can't wait to get some matching leggings!
Love this top! It has just enough stretch that it’s super comfortable but also holds me in! The print is also amazing! The only problem is it’s slightly thin to wear as a bra top alone but such a simple fix.
I knew from photos & past reviews that this top was cute but I didn’t realize how much I’d love it! Granted I usually don’t wear a bra, I have found this top to be more supportive than I thought it would! And I love the moon design!
My expectations were already high waiting for my new top to arrive yet I was still blown away at the beauty of the piece! Such an honor to show up to class knowing I’m practicing yoga and standing behind the truth of loving the earth by wearing Purusha!
