|Zobha Avery Tank in Phantom Heather|
Zobha is one of the few yoga/activewear brands that has their own, distinctive vision. If you look through their website you'll see they offer tasteful, feminine designs that are not lululemon clones. I've really liked their materials, too, from the first time I tried them four years ago. They are the brand that has material that has come closest to (old) luon in weight and feel (especially softness), I've found. The quality is also very nice and my old tanks have not sueded or pilled. The colors are a bit more earthy, less neon, but very richly saturated. Zobha is one of the brands I tell people to look into when they ask for lululemon alternatives.
Zobha sent me a couple of new pieces to review and they are going to give away a $50 e-giftcard to my readers. The winner will be chosen at random from the comments and you can earn an entry by commenting and another by liking their Facebook page and commenting that you did that. You'll have to delurk a little bit and give yourself a name other than just plain 'anonymous' so I can tell people apart. Calling yourself 'Anonymous 1234' would be fine. I'll pick the winner next week on the 11th.
In addition, Zobha is having a 25% off everything sale today.

The Ruched Capris were also super soft. I found the material a little more lightweight and not as compressive-feeling/stretchier-feeling than luon. They were decently opaque but I tend to have a problem with super soft/super stretchy materials in bottoms because I need the dimple-smoothing properties of a stiffer fabric like luon. As far as coverage (i.e., dimple smoothing) these weren't the best for me. I've bought other Zobha bottoms in the past that have stiffer/thicker fabric but it's hard to tell from the descriptions which bottoms use which fabric. They fit is really nice and the crops are very comfortable. I thought the fit was TTS to their size chart. I think these are nice crops for yoga, the gym, or casual wear but if you need help from your crops with smoothing out cellulite you might want to try bottoms with another fabric.
Don't forget to comment in for a giftcard entry. And don't forget about the big sale today.
