Great quality tops!
PostedAugust 3, 2010
I usually wear a L in form fitting clothes (38B), but I might feel more comfy in an XL in these tops (there were no XLs when I ordered mine). I have two, a black and a white. I wash in cold and warm, respectively, then stretch each top with one hand on the top and one on the bottom and pulling, and hang to dry to keep from shrinking either of them or fading the black top. They both still look great after many, many washings. They're a little less revealing than similar tops, so I not only wear them around the house but even shopping, etc., in warm weather and they're great as a second layer in the winter.
Whereas another reviewer feel they run big, I feel they run small, so perhaps consider ordering two sizes and send one back?
In any case, the quality is great!! And the finishing adds a higher quality look than most other tops like these.

Wear these all the time
PostedAugust 30, 2009
I generally wear a medium (big waist/narrow hips), but I didn't want something too snug, so I ordered a large. There's enough stretch, and the shorts are so comfy overall, that either a medium or large would've been just fine. I can't recommend these highly enough for comfort, movability, and breathability. Love 'em! :)

 Sunflower Showerhead
Sunflower Showerhead
Sulfates and phosphates in treated city water are on the rise, and when these chemicals are present the effectiveness and life of regular filtration devices are greatly diminished. Only the Sunflower Showerhead uses a proprietary patented filtering media that works to its full chlorine-reducing effectiveness. It reduces Hydrogen Sulfide, Lead, Arsenic, Iron, Mercury, Calcium Carbonate, Magnesium, Bacteria, Fungi, Algae, Cadmium, Chromium and Selenium in addition to removing over 90% of the chlorine. If your utility adds these chemicals to your water, this is the best filtering option for you. 2.5 gpm flow rate. USA.<br /><br /> 6" diameter head with adjustable arm included. 3 lbs.<br /><br /> Filter should be replaced every 6-9 months depending on water quality.

No chlorine odor
PostedAugust 12, 2009
We have awful city water which requires EXTRA chlorine due to the amount and types of bacteria in it. (Info from a water company employee when we had our water tested.) When running a bath for my baby, now a preschooler, I used a bathball from Gaiam. B/c the water poured from the tap and into the ball, the chlorine odor in the air was still very strong (though I'm assuming the chlorine was not actually transmitted to the bath b/c of the ball). With this shower head, however, I can run a bath for my little one using the shower without ANY chlorine odor in the air whatsoever. What a relief. Thank you, Gaiam, for making this available.

Buy more than one!
PostedAugust 5, 2008
We loved Gaiam's Romper and Blanket for our little one two years ago. We used it over and over and over and over and it just never wore out. I would've bought more, but everyone else loved them, too, so these were out of stock for a long time. Learn from my mistake - buy as many as you think you'll need when you have the chance! The quality is excellent so these would also make a very nice gift. It converts very easily and this is a great price for high quality organic!

Is there any type of finish?

Is there any type of finish on these blinds? Have any chemicals been added to them? I'd like to use them in my young child's room and want the least impact on air quality possible. Thanks so much.

Machine washable?

It seems that similar, if not the same, curtains on your Australian Gaiam site are machine washable. (see: http://www.gaiam.com.au/Product_Detail.aspx?ParentCategoryID=45&CategoryID=71&ProductID=7440)
Are these US Gaiam curtains machine wash and dry, please?
