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?!
Bras/crops tops made from a tree and organic cotton are beautiful things! Our Birth of the Sun 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 ;)
It contains 5% 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?
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 eucalyptus 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!)
95% eucalyptus tencel and 5% spandex, 100% cotton threads, low impact dye, water-based non-toxic ink.
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.
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!
This top is just what I hoped it would be. My bra size is 30DD so I am most comfortable when I always have some support. I usually wear sports bras but I wanted something that didn't put pressure on my neck. I ordered a XS. This is the perfect option for days I don't need as much support as a sports bra but still need a "bra". It still holds me really well without squeezing me or having any pressure points. The material is so soft and the moon's on the front make me feel cute.
Wear my top all the time! So comfy and versatile
I absolutely love my new Purusha top!!
The top fits well. Snug, but not tight. A large would also probably fit in a more comfortable looser way, but medium fits well too! I will be buying more! Addicted!
Very comfortable but still enough compression that it can be worn without a be. My bust is 34-35 / 32D and the small works great. Could probably also do a medium with less compression. All in all my favourite new top!
