My Go-To Natural Yoga Tops- Emelyn Designs Review

I've recently been obsessed with yoga but you know what? It's hard to find sustainable, comfortable yoga clothing! Honestly, I've struggled long and hard with wearing uncomfortable, itchy polyester-based yoga clothes during my workouts. They don't let my skin breathe, are too irritating on my skin and just feels uncomfortable on the skin.

I want to introduce to you a lovely Etsy shop called Emelyn Designs- this lovely, inspiring brand really changed my yoga wardrobe for the better, and they're absolutely fantastic! To start off, I'll tell you a bit about the brand. The brand's owned by Monica, who has always loved art and drawing since she was young. When she was 18, she started doing yoga and it bought so much to her life that she wanted to combine her two passions- yoga and art- to make lovely yoga clothing for people who want something a little extra in their workouts.

Best of all, the brand gives back to charity and 10% of the proceeds of the shirts (and 25% of the art prints) go to an animal sanctuary in the North of Morocco. Some of their proceeds also goes towards a charity called Go Light Our World, a worthy charity that o provides a variety of solar solutions through mico-loan systems to rural, impoverished communities around the world.

The first yoga tank top that I got from Emelyn Designs is this beautiful, light blue Organic Bamboo Tank Top. The tank top is designed extremely well, featuring a lovely scoop neck and an athletic cut which allows your skin to breath during your yoga practice. The front of the tank top is beautifully designed, featuring a handstand mandala which is inspired by the founder of Go Light Our World, Kayla Nielsen, an inspiring yogi which motivated Monica on Instagram. The logo is hand-drawn and printed in Montreal locally, which means that local businesses are supported through the making of this top.

In terms of comfort and quality, this tank top is one of the best I've ever seen. It's made from 70% rayon and 30% organic cotton, which means that it is soft, flexible and breathable. The fabric is light but sturdy and can stretch along your body as you move during Vinyasa flows and the like. The process from knitting the jersey fabric, the coloration (using non toxic dyes), the cutting and sewing of the tops is ethically done in Toronto. Everything is exceptionally made, and I feel really good when I'm wearing this tank top for yoga!

The second tank top that I got is the Ethical Sustainable Bamboo and Organic Cotton Yoga Tank Top - this gorgeous yoga top features another hand-drawn design which features one of my favourite yoga poses- a lunge. This powerful pose is printed on the tank top, and when I wear it, I really feel inspired to work out and break a sweat more! Again, I love how the black tank top juxtaposes with the white design in the front. Emelyn Designs makes exceptionally beautiful tank tops for yoga, and it looks elegant, luxurious and chic at the same time.

Again, the quality of the top is outstanding and it is one of the most comfortable yet practical items of clothing that I own. Bamboo and cotton is the perfect combination of strength and comfort- it allows your skin to breath while avoiding the toxic chemicals found in other materials like polyester, nylon or lycra. I really feel a difference when I'm wearing this top- it is light, flowy and hides my sports bra well. It's not revealing at all, but manages to look sophisticated and a bit playful at the same time.

Overall, I'm so happy that I got two tank tops from Emelyn Designs. Their Etsy shop is wonderful and unique, and they even sell prints for you to buy if you love the drawings on the clothing. They have t-shirts and tank tops, and I'm extremely impressed with their impeccable quality and style. Hope you enjoyed my review and do check out their shop!
