Satva Eco-Conscious Activewear for the Lazy Mama

[Disclaimer: I was given a top and pants from Satva in consideration for this review. All opinions are my own.]

When I was contacted to receive and review some Satva organic cotton yoga clothes, I was intrigued.  I love that the cotton is organic and Fair Trade Certified™, and that their dyes are low-impact or natural. But... I don't do yoga. I do, however, do lazy! And even lazy people can be mindful and eco-conscious about their clothing and food, and support companies that give back to their farmers!

I'm short but wide-boned, so stretchy clothing fits me best, since anything wide enough for my hips or shoulders is often too long or too loose everywhere else. But I don't want to look like I'm just wearing my PJs when I go to pick up the kids at school! (Because apparently I'm an "adult" now.) So I have to wear "real" clothes when out and about. But the second I get home, off come the jeans and on go the stretchy pants!

Lounging Around
Satva sent me an Ambar Strap Back Tank (in Molten Lava, Medium) and Mantra Leggings (in Ocean Depths Eastern Tile print, size Small. I could have gone up a size in these pants I think, but otherwise they fit perfectly!) And they're GORGEOUS! I could totally wear these out in public without looking like I didn't bother getting dressed when I left! Which is great, since then I can be comfy lounging around at home, and I don't have to bother getting dressed when I leave...

Check out the back of this tank! It's so pretty - reminds me of a butterfly! I was worried I wouldn't have a bra I could wear with that intricate back, but no worries - the Ambar tank has one built-in! I cannot wait for the weather to warm up so I can show this off!

Around the House or Out and About
Whether I'm snuggling my kittens, reading a book, plopped in front of the TV, waiting for my coffee to brew, taking a snooze, or just lounging around staring off into space, the Satva organic cotton clothing line would be perfect! Or, you know. For exercising and running errands and going out in public and stuff too.

  1. 50 dollar shirts and 60 dollar pants and the biggest they go is a large? Seriously?

    Well, it's a site full of cute clothes that don't fit 50 percent of women in the world, but at least they're cute?

  2. Wow, love those pants! Way cool. The top looks nice, too. Lookin' good, Kendra! :)

  3. I only shopped there once and bought one bra on sale and with a coupon. So at least the price was somewhat acceptable and not a total rip off. But I realized my mistake too late, since Satva has the worst return/exchange policy of any internet clothes company I ever shopped at. Basically, if the item ends up not fitting you or just plain being uncomfortable to wear, you've wasted your money, because you can't return or exchange anything that's on sale, or clearance, or was bought with a coupon. Though, I bought the bra a size larger than what I normally wear, it turned out to be too tight everywhere (I barely managed to squeeze into it and had to take it off immediately). It also has very large prominent seams that rub my skin the wrong way. Not only would it be impossible to do any yoga or other types of exercise in this bra, but I can't see myself wearing it for lounging either. Satva has no product reviews, so I had no idea what I was going to get and I can't leave my own review now that I've had experience with their products and service. It's not a company I trust or will ever shop at again. And I don't recommend it to anyone either. There are much better organic brands out there.

    1. Thank you for sharing! I'm hearing that their "customer service" sucks from others too!

  4. Terrible experience! I ordered few items, 2 tops in size small and bottom in size medium. I normally wear XS on top and Small on bottom. When I received the order, all items were to small and they had elastics that cut through my skin and are very uncomfortable. I returned all three items and explained to customer representative that these items are not done according to the size measurements listed on their website. I checked size measurements from their website and even ordered large size than necessary, but the items were still uncomfortable. Satva will not refund for two items that were sale items. This is a nightmare, I cannot beleive this level of customer service! It seems that keeping this money from them is more important than having good reputation. There was no chance to try the items on since this is an online purhcase. Their return policy hurts customers and it seems like this is a not credible company who doesn't care about custmoers. This is a very stressful experience, and I do not recommend to buy their clothing.

    1. Sorry to hear that! Mine were tight too, but I assumed it was all the Cheetos and Frappuccinos I eat... But yeah. Sounds like their customer service sucks!


Go ahead! Tell me how awesome I am. Or ask a question. Whatever.
