Working out has become a part of my regime to make me a better me. One of the things I realized I needed to feel good while completing my fitness routine was the right apparel. Sporting the right pieces can make getting through a routine that much easier, especially during the summer months. Gaiam Canada knows how important the right apparel can be to making a workout feel good. They have come out with a collection of summer apparel that focuses on looking and feeling good. I was asked to sport some items from this line to see if I would be comfy while looking good this season.
From all of the pieces available in this summer collection, I chose to review the Riley Yoga Graphic Tank Top in Odyssey Grey and the Nova OM Bootcut Pant with Adorned Nova Print in Odyssey Grey.
Gaiam Canada Review
Gaiam Riley Yoga Graphic Tank Top
Find it hard to move around and not feel weighed down by moisture on your upper body? To keep arms and back cool this summer, Gaiam Canada designed the Riley Yoga Graphic Tank Top to get the job done.
This piece has the following features:
- A solid design
- Lightweight fabric
- Mesh material
- Scoop neckline
- Soft touch fabrication
- Text screen print
- A racer back with back keyhole opening.
It was great to wear this top while I workout a sweat. Whether I was out for a run, at home doing a workout or yoga routine, this shirt kept me feeling cool and comfortable. The breathable mesh lining helped to ventilate my back. It felt wonderful to have air constantly on my back while moving around on my Gaiam yoga mat.
The material of this shirt was also really soft to wear. It was cozy and helped to take some of the moisture away from my skin, leaving me feeling drier once my workout was complete. The text on the back of the top helped to give me that little bit of an extra boost to step up my game on my terms.
Nova OM Bootcut Pant with Adorned Nova Print
Are you always fidgeting with your yoga pants while performing certain yoga moves? The Nova OM Bootcut Pant with Adorned Nova Print has got your back.
Here are some of the fabulous features of this pair of leggings:
- They are completely opaque
- Soft to the touch
- Made out of material that dries quickly
- A stay-put waistband that helps to make you look slimmer and helps to you covered.
I fell in love with these pants as soon as I saw them. Just looking at them, I could tell that they would be comfy to wear. When I did slip them on, I knew I was right about my initial thoughts. I felt like I was wearing the softest pants EVER! At first, I worried about the length of these pants. I’m just lightly taller than the average woman, so I have issues finding pants that cover my ankles. These pants reached the ground when worn, which brought a smile to my face.
It was fabulous that the waistband was wide. When unraveled, it reached halfway up my ribcage. The coverage this pair of pants provided was fabulous. I did not have to worry about accidentally playing peek-a-boo with anyone. Once my yoga routine was complete I was dry and comfortable enough in them to wear them for the rest of the day. This is a fabulous piece to wear anytime!
I really enjoy sporting the pieces I reviewed from Gaiam Canada’s summer collection. Both pieces are so comfortable that I would want to wear them to my workout or all the time. The Riley Yoga Graphic Tank Top allowed my skin to breathe while working up a sweat. The OM Bootcut Pant with the Adorned Nova Print drew sweat away from my skin and stayed in place while moving. Both pieces are also strong and durable. They did not rip or tear as I contorted myself into different positions. These pieces have become staples in my wardrobe, not only this summer, but throughout the year!
