As a natural fibres advocate, I decided to scout for some good fabric for my sporty life.
3. good fit
4. not losing shape after a few days (goes with points 1 and 3)
6. not synthetic
7. good for the skin
9. not breaking the bank!
And I found it! In the shape of bamboo - leggings and sport bra were my first trials, and after using them for a couple of weeks I can say that it fits the profile perfectly and it's very soft! Maybe the 'sports' bra isn't for everyone, as i don't know how it performs with real boobs but if you are on the small side like me then by all means go for it :P
The beauty of the natural product is that it doesn't smell at all not even after a long sweaty run - i will definitely buy another set of both and also look for a top (they have some nice ones on their website!!). My bargains came from ebay and I spent about £6 for the leggings and £3 for the bra - so definitely following number 9 here! Who said being environmentally friendly and good to your skin is only available if you are rich??
Why bamboo is a good choice, from theboody website:
I am very happy with my choice so far. Hope some of you will follow suit and make more sustainable choices.
