YogaSmoga Twistie Tank Review

This is a review of the YogaSmoga Twistie Tank.

  

YogaSmoga

Overall Rating: 4 Stars

I’ve checked out & reviewed a pair of workout capris and a headband from YogaSmoga once before and found the quality & comfort of their pieces is sublime. The Run Jump ‘n’ Play Capris are still one of my favorite pairs hanging in my closet and they get a ton of use. You can check out that whole review & the photos with it here.

So, with this tank, I’ll get the teensy bit of bad news out of out the way first: tanks with a flowy/loose bottom seem to be the only ones that work for me. Tighter fitting ones (like this one) always ride up on my waist (likely because of my shape–it’s not a product flaw) and are not suitable for me to run in because they don’t stay put.

However, judging this tank just as it is designed to fit, it’s pretty freaking awesome. (Is this making sense?) Basically, I will live in this tank around the house and for things not exercise related. I just won’t work out in it often because of how it moves on my torso.

I was very impressed by the feel of the material and how the built-in shelf provides enough support that I can wear this tank comfortable out of the house without a bra–love that! The color combination is pretty & vibrant & I love the design of the straps in the back. It’s an excellent staple piece to have in your closet to wear even as a cami. If this tank would work for around-the-house AND for running, it would get my highest rating.

As expected, excellent-quality product from YogaSmoga & I’m sure many gals who are tight tank fans will adore this one.

Gym Loose Tank Top

About: 

-Loose Fit

-Sweat-wicking fabric

-Scoop Neckline

-Back cutout detailing

My Thoughts:

This top is beautiful–from the cut to the pattern and transparency of the fabric. It fit loosely, yet is feminine in that the fabric is see-through. I love the design. It’s the ideal, breathable running tank that could also be worn around town as a fun and unique tank top during warmer temps.

Studio Capsule Pants

About:

-Relaxed fit

-Moisture-wicking

-Wide elastic band

-drawstring

My Thoughts:

What a unique, comfortable, yet chic pair of sweatpants. I love the cute take on lounge sweatpants. They are tight enough around the bum and legs that they do not feel too frumpy on me. I see them as a fashionable twist on my cooler-temp sweatpants workout and hanging-out routine.

Narita V2 Shoes

About:

-Lightweight

-Mesh upper with synthetic suede overlays

-Breathable sockliner

My Thoughts:

When I first saw these shoes, I thought: throwback. I love the retro look and color contrast on these shoes. I wore these a few days ago while kicking the soccer ball around at the park with my family. They are perfect for kicking a soccer ball. They’re low profile, Simple with a flat platform where the laces are. Outside of soccer ball kicking, I find them as a comfortable sneaker to wear with sweatpants or jeans.

Gym Tank 3

About:

-Inner bra support

-Fitted; feminine silhouette

-Criss-cross back strap

-Sweat-wicking

My Thoughts:

I love the color of this form-fitting tank. It covers enough so that I feel comfortable exercising without having to be cautious. It’s also flattering, I feel, and would complement a range of body types. The inner bra support is a nice detail. I prefer to still wear a sports bra underneath–though it could be worn without one during low-intensity performance activities.

Gym 3/4 Length Tights

About:

-Unique patterning

-Flattering fit

-Drawstring waist

-Capri Length

My Thoughts:

These capris fit like a dream. They are comfortable at the waist–having the adjustable drawstring option is nice for water weight fluctuation. The material feels seamless and is ideal for optimizing performance and feel on long distance runs.

Mobium XT Shoe

About:

-Lightweight

-Breathable

-Rubber outsole

-Allows feet to move and expand freely

My Thoughts:

Love at first sight with the color of these shoes. I love how vibrant they are. They are very cushy and comfortable. I normally run in semi-minimalist shoes–thus, these shoes aren’t my pick for running. However, I enjoy wearing these shoes for performance during cross-training activities like hiking, weight lifting and doing plyometrics.

Onzie Active Wear

(pronounced “own-zee”)

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

About Onzie:

CREATION Created by a 20 year Bikram Yogi, Onzie blends the best of traditional yoga wear with modern innovation and a touch of whimsy. The result? Active apparel that is functional, flexible and flattering. At Onzie our philosophy is “keep your practice challenging, and your wardrobe simple!” Onzie’s no-frills one-pieces and separates are best worn while sweating, swimming, or simply lounging around.

Onzie products are made with love in southern California.

PERFORMANCE Utilizing Free-Flow Fabric Technology that is durable and breathable, this fast-drying material keeps bodies cool, dry and comfortable. Onzie yoga gear is perfect for hot yoga, but can also be used for pilates, spinning, swimming, surfing, running or hooping. Our clothes can be worn as everyday wear or into chlorine and salt water environments. You can transition in and out of yoga postures as seamlessly as you can the rest of your day. From straps to bottom, Onzie helps keep your body in check. You’ll feel supported from the inside and out…shaping the entire body. So embrace the awareness of your being, sense your core, and feel secure. Focus on your strength and beauty. And for goodness sake, forget about those so-called flaws. You’re perfectly you.

AMERICAN MADE Did you know that Onzie is 100% made in the USA? All parts of our process including knitting, dyeing, cutting, sewing, photography, marketing, distribution and design all happen in Los Angeles, CA.”

Elastic Tank top

About:

“The Elastic Tank Top will become your new favorite tank! The racer back design includes a fun pop of color and the deep scoop sides allow you to show off that sports bra underneath!

  • 100% Free Flow Jersey
  • Hand or machine wash cold
  • Tumble or hang dry
  • Made in USA.”

My Thoughts:

As the warmer temperatures approach, I am getting increasingly excited to wear this piece on my runs more. The weather has only allowed me to wear this tank two times thus far. However, this tank top will get a lot of wear in the future.

It does everything right. By that I mean: it stays put (whereas some tanks drift off your shoulders or move around too much), it is lightweight and breathes well, it is loose at the bottom (which flatters all body types), and it has a unique and cute accent with the elastic strap on the back. It does all of that while allowing you to absorb some sunshine on your run. I was already a fan of tank tops, but this one has me excited all over again for summer runs.

Capri Pant

About:

“With fun and unique prints, our Capri Pants are great to spice up any work out! With a low-rise waist band, they are designed to be form-fitted and will stretch and move with your body. For most women, these capri pants will stop about mid-calf length. *These select colors/prints are now available in L/L: Black, Skull, Cheetah, Illusion, Meadow, and Black Magic

  • Inseam on size S/M (in inches): 20
  • 100% Free Flow Fabric
  • 80% nylon / 20% spandex
  • Hand or machine wash cold
  • Tumble or hang dry
  • Made in USA.”

My Thoughts: 

These pants are AWESOME. They fit like a glove, which is exactly what I want when I’m headed out for a long run. Any extra gathering of fabric can prove to be irritating after several miles. With these pants, It’s just like second skin. I forgot I even had them on. I have worn many brands of tights to run in (many specifically designed for runners) and these Onzie capris trump many of them.

The fabric is also great for resisting plying and chaffing in between the legs–which comes into play with pant longevity. In other words, the best running pants (to me) are the ones that don’t wear out after a year or two of use. I see these pants being in the rotation for years to come.

On a girly note–I love the pattern and slight texture of the pants. They are a nice change of pace from your basic black athletic tight. They’re fun while still being figure flattering.
