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 organic cotton 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).
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?
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.
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.
