Soybu: Eco-friendly Performance Wear All Day Long (**GIVEAWAY**)

 

 

A Soybu Oasis dress was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

Sleek design and comfort are not two words that are put together in the same sentence when describing women’s apparel. However, this conundrum has been redefined in www.soybu.com. The vision of Soybu is simple – to empower women in their busy, active everyday lives so they will look and feel feminine, stylish and comfortable. All day. Everyday.

Their performance apparel is creatively designed to move seamlessly between the activities of everyday without sacrificing quality or style. With a blend of eco-friendly fibers in their long-lasting apparel, and minimal impact on the environment, this company is always keeping our planet in mind – just one aspect that sets them apart from the competition.

Their design philosophy is that a full life is about balance – balancing exercise with leisure, and work with fun. Their designers apply this philosophy to the creation of apparel that combines the technical performance you need for your workout, with the style you want for business, travel and play. Their collections are brimming with special details that make the clothes fit better, look better and wear better. It all starts with performance – everything they make is rigorously fit tested to meet your standards for style and technical attributes.

According to ancient philosophy, people around the world regard the peace symbol as a means of attracting good things into their lives. They take this wisdom to heart and stitch it into every item of clothing they make with their eye-catching logo. Based in Denver, Colorado, Soybu has been creating exceptional and inspired performance apparel since 1998.

Eco-Friendly Facts

  • All of their recycled polyester comes from post-consumer recycled bottles (meaning, the factories don’t buy bottles just to recycle them, they have been actually used and recycled). By using recycled bottles, they keep them out of landfills and keep supporting the recycling process.
  • Based on an individual sized water bottle, they save about 20 water bottles from a landfill on a pair of pants and 12 on a tank.
  • The amount of energy it takes to turn bottles into polyester is significantly less than turning oil into polyester.
  • They blend their fabrics strategically so to keep the eco-friendliness of the recycled poly, but also to maintain the garment’s performance and durability. If the clothing is more durable, it lasts longer, and you won’t throw them away in landfills as frequently.
  • You can wash recycled poly in cold water and achieve the same cleanliness without the energy.
  • They do not waste any fabrics… everything is used from season to season in creative ways.

MY THOUGHTS

I had the extreme pleasure of receiving one of the Soybu Oasis dresses to review. I was extremely excited about receiving this just because my collection is far from expansive. As a mom it is extremely important to find apparel that is not only trendy but comfortable and functional to wear as well.

I absolutely love this dress although it is not forgiving. The dress fits like a glove and so I am glad that I am in good condition and was able to comfortably show it off!!  It is a perfect “go-to” dress that easily transitions from day to night.  This ultra comfortable, super versatile dress has ruched 3/4 sleeves and the perfect hem length. Constructed of their durable Soybu Stretch RE-FLEX, it is 44% Recycled Polyester / 44% Virgin Polyester / 12% Spandex.

Just to touch the dress, you could tell quality and durability of the material. Super soft, yet flexible….the perfect wear for the everyday mom!!

I tend not to be the one to wear a whole lot of color and naturally migrate to colors such as gray and brown, so the selection was perfect for me. A fun added bonus was the matching hair-tie With a Soybu purple bead on it. This complements the grey dress perfectly, and was necessary for my sometimes unruly curly hair! I truly loved the dress and would love to style some of the other clothing items from their other lines!
