~ALO- Review & Giveaway

  One essential that is needed to practice yoga is some great clothing. Some characteristics of yoga clothing that you should look for is-

  • Somewhat form fitting
  • Breathable fabric
  • Sweat absorbent fabric
  • Strectchability of the fabric
When I first discovered alo clothing, I was not only in love with their beautiful designs, but also by their mission. alo stands for air, land, and ocean, and they believe in protecting these great elements by being as green as they possibly can. alo strives with every part of their being to help the planet and I do believe that they have achieved this!
alo Mission:

alo not only uses solar power, but also

alo generously sent me a Double Layer Yoga Tunic in Black/Granite and also a pair of Bamboo Legging in Black. As soon as I got these I tried them on and totally fell in love!

The Double Layer Yoga Tunic is made of 67% bamboo, 27% cotton, & 5% spandex. Let me just say that this is the first time that I have ever felt any fabric that is made of bamboo. Well, let me tell you it is one of the softest and silkiest things that I have ever felt besides actual silk. The bamboo is not only soft and silky, but also antibacterial, hypallergenic, and naturally wicks away moisture. I was totally shocked the first time that I wore this for yoga and my workouts! Usually my clothes are hanging on me covered in sweat, but this was not the case with my alo Double Layer Yoga Tunic! It was just slightly damp nothing like my regular clothing.

The Double Layer Yoga Tunic is criss crossed with the black fabric. Then underneath is a grey tank that is attached to the bottom to create a beautiful design. This top is also very versatile. I can wear it working out and then just throw on a pair of jeans and still look great! I actually had to do this because I was running a bit late picking up my daughter from school. I just love to wear this top any wear that I go!

I also received a pair of Bamboo Leggings and they are made of 68% Bamboo, 28% Cotton, 4% Spandex French Terry. I just love these as well for the same reasons as the top! These leggings come about to your mid calf and have two open holes on the bottom outside calf that are attached with buttons. These are super stretchy and perfect for practising yoga! You could also wear these out as well. Just put on a long tunic and you would be set to go!

I hope that you fall in love with alo as much as I have!

You can purchase the Double Layer Yoga Tunic on the alo site for $65.00. The Bamboo Leggings you can also purchase for $52.00.
 alo not only offers women's clothing, but also men's. They have a wonderful selection that you can choose from and purchase directly from their site.
