The Yoga Travel Tree team has been working with Onzie to get our readers real-live feedback on they're awesome and stylin' products. They shipped us some of their favorite Summer 2014 pieces, and we test drove them so you'll know what's what, and what's not!
Onzie products are sustainable, durable and versitle. They're designed to take the heat of hot yoga, stay on through the bendiest of back-bends and tackle that Zumba class you're secretly addicted to. The 2014 Summer Line features new colors on our favorite products, new designs for even more choices and they're as chic as ever. I feel so fancy in my downward dog.
At YTT, we like to keep it real. We’re not yogis who sugar coat our feedback, so what you read is what you can expect from these Onzie products!
Sarah’s Activities: An all around athlete and cardioholic, Sarah’s workouts include swimming, spinning/cycling, running, yoga, CrossFit, weightlifting and anything else that’s difficult. You can expect that her workout apparel get’s put through the ringer.
Brooke's activities: The face of yoga at YTT, Brooke's a true asana-addict, and all around athlete! Yoga every morning, plus a post-flow gym session that includes everything from heavy weights to track sprints is her MO! Sweat it out and live it up.
First Impression: Trés chic! It looks runway-ready and the color quality is to-for-for! Yoga bra, strappy goodness. Now, where does my head and arms go?
Fit: Pretty good, better on me than the bra too I reviewed in the spring. The extra straps around the back give a more secure feeling, and the neckline is super flattering.
Performance: I'm athletically built (think stick figure, people) and while this is plenty of support for yoga or spinning, I would never think to wear it on a run. Ouch. Out on the town however, is a different story!
Score: 4 out of 5
First Impression: Sick colors and the little bit of mesh is a spicy addition.
Fit: Pretty good, a little tight in the waistline, and they sit a tiny bit low for my liking (I’m a high waisted kind of girl) but the leg fit is fantastic. Lot’s of compression, lots of breathability.
Performance: Pretty good. The waistband has the tendency to shimmy downward during some yoga poses and on runs. If you can get over having to pull them up every once in a while, the wicking fabric is fantastic for any hot activity, like Bikram yoga, and they actually stay put a little better once they get a slightly damp.
Score: 4 out of 5
First Impression: Super cute! I got contrasting black and pink and the colorblock look is rad. It’s also plenty long for my tall self.
Fit: Fantastic! Love at first wear! It’s long enough, flowy flattering and looks like it’s not even a workout top. I would combine this with the elastic back bra and go out for a night on the town!
Performance: Great for running, lifting, spinning and anything else where you don’t go upside down. During pretty much any inversion (even downward dog) this top nearly falls right off! It’s still cute though.
Score: 4.5 out of 5
First Impression: Love love love love.
Fit: Cue the Shania Twain: “Man, I feel like a woman!” These puppies hug the curves in all the right places. Don’t take this lightly, I don’t have many curves to hug. The one fault in the fab is that they’re a little too short, fitting more like boyshort undies than yoga shorts.
Performance: They stay in place, thats for sure! The high waist keeps them put, while the yoga booty-highlighting cut doesn’t leave much room for them to go anyway. While I consider myself a pretty confident gal, these might only be for home practice, or a Bikram studio, where yoga clothes are basically underwear and by wearing these guys you’ll be the most conservative yogi in the room.
Score: 4 out of 5
First Impression: I got the black with teal cover and I really love the design.
Fit: The bra is very supportive, though probably not supportive enough to go running in. My girls need support! and The bottom waistband is pretty loose.
Performance: I found it sliding up near my torso a lot during any type of inversion - down dog, shoulder stand, head stand, etc. I think this is best for looking yoga-cute out on the go, but perhaps I should have gotten a smaller size to eliminate the slidage.
Score: 3.5 out of 5
First Impression: Awesome pattern and I love the sassy net stripe down the sides! The material seems ultra-wicking and light.
Fit: I'm short (5’2”) and these are crazy long on me. Probably have about 3 inches of extra fabric even if I wrap it over my heel. They also really cinch at the waistband which sits at about hip height. If you have a belly at all, you'll have a lovely little muffin top to show off!
Performance: Since they were so long I wasn’t able to actually try them out! I imagine they would be super sweat-wicking and unrestricting, although the waistband might be a little uncomfortable.
Score: 2 out of 5
First Impression: Really cute, even for just wearing around.
Fit: It fits like a going out top more than a yoga top. While it’s a cute tank and fits pretty well, it’s more fitted toward the top and hangs a little tighter around the hips. When paired with the Tuxedo Leggings it hugs the mini muffin top the leggings create in a really sexy way. #sarcasm
Performance: Awesome everyday tank, but terrible for yoga. It definitely floats up to the bosom area during down dog or any other inversion. Maybe if you’re a restorative or yin junkie it would be perfect, but I love my upside-down poses!
Score: 3 out of 5
