Good loose fit
PostedNovember 8, 2011
This is a nice workout top. It isn't tight at all, looser around the stomach. I recommend it with a sportsbra.

Nice style, kind of short and linty
PostedJune 20, 2010
I like this style, particularly to wear as pants under dresses, it's really nice (my favorite dresses to wear with these are the Prana Lola ones, they match just right). I particularly like the waist on these. There are two things that aren't my favorite but I'm still keeping them and wearing them often.
The first: I am 5'6" and I find the size small pants a little short. It may be because of the boot cut, but they flare out JUST above my shoes, not over them at all. The fit was fine other than the length, and I'd be hesitant to switch to a medium and get baggy pants, so I'm sticking with them.
The second: they are a lint and cat hair magnet! I have the patch-pocket pants and washed them together, those came out lint and hair-free but these were covered. So they require a bit more maintenance in terms of defuzzing.

Good price, useful
PostedJune 20, 2010
I like this headband because it doesn't suddenly pop off my head like some other ones, I think because of the fabric in the back. The price is right, just make sure you throw it in the wash before wearing (mine washes fine) to get rid of the initial smell and to soften it up.

Great blanket, just think about color
PostedJune 20, 2010
I have two of these blankets, one in mulberry (regular price) and one in shale (clearance). Both and very soft, cozy and wash well, but I have to say, I really recommend the richer colors of these blankets. The mulberry looks lovely and luxurious, and it's a really unique and rich shade so it stands out; the shale is okay, but sort of blah, and so the blanket as a whole just doesn't look that special or very different from what you can find anywhere. I can have both of them out for company and people ask about the mulberry one but no one has ever shown any interest in the shale :P
If I were ordering from the clearance again, I think I'd go for the stream-colored one. Heck, I still might, I really like these blankets.
So, I really recommend these blankets, but I'd go with the "wow" colors as the colors are a big part of what make the blankets stand out in my opinion.

Simple, comfortable, loose
PostedJune 13, 2010
I got this in two colors and they are both great. It is great for low-impact activity, yoga in particular. I like that the fabric doesn't hug too tight, it's just loose enough to stay put without clinging like a lot of yoga shirts, and the band that makes the shelf bra is soft and you hardly notice it. It's much more comfortable than wearing any other kind of bra for exercise. This tank is good for someone with a little bit of a tummy who doesn't feel like wearing spandex to exercise. It's very, very comfortable and pretty modest.
I ordered in size small and the fit is fine. I am 34C and a size 4-6.

Nice, a little high-waisted
PostedJune 7, 2010
These are comfortable pants. I enjoyed wearing them to yoga. They come with a little bit of a chemical smell that I haven't found with Gaiam's other things, but I suppose that will wash out. The pants are high-waisted. This can be nice for yoga, but some people don't like that look. These go up above my belly button and then are still pretty baggy in the legs. I'd err on ordering a smaller rather than larger size if you are somewhere in between, since the waist is adjustable and the legs are loose-fitting.

Beautiful, just don't expect miracles
PostedJune 6, 2010
This is a lovely, lovely clock, and works well for meditation. I have had one for more than a year. A few things: you can't really close and open it a ton or you can cut some of the cords inside and damage it, so I leave mine open (that is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5). The battery lasts forever in this thing and I have never had to change mine and I haven't plugged it in for about 6 months.
Now, I thought it might magically make me wake up better, as I am a very heavy sleeper. Ultimately, what I ended up doing is setting this clock 10 minutes before my other alarm clock. It ROUSES me and that's nice and I like it. I couldn't use this clock on its own, though, as it's a little too easy to ignore. My boyfriend really, really likes it though, way better than my other alarms, and it really only takes one big ring from another clock to finally get me out of bed, which is better than it used to be without this clock.

Perfect for "deck yoga"
PostedJune 6, 2010
I love this. I get lots of compliments on it and I put it on my deck so I can do "deck yoga" on a softer surface. The larger sized rug can accommodate 2-3 yoga mats on it (2 comfortably) so I can do yoga with a friend on this rug. Since my deck is uneven and hard, it's a great second layer to have under our mats.

I recently ordered a unitard and it has a sheen to the fabric. I'd like to get some tights, but I don't want the sheen. Are these shiny?

Our recycled-polyester gym bag includes a vented compartment for sneakers, an outside slip pocket for a water bottle or cellphone, and bottom straps to easily carry your yoga mat
 

I don't usually carry a yoga mat. Will the straps on the bottom be bothersome if not in use?

I have carried mine for awhile as a camera bag. I've never used the yoga straps and haven't even noticed them.

Is the fiore duvet cover beige with red flowers or red with beige flowers???

I'm trying to choose bedding for our new home and already have a pottery barn down comforter. I am seeking a duvet and hope that this one's red!

The duvet cover is beige with red flowers. The quilt is red with beige flowers. They are the opposite of each other.

Quilt

Can the quilt be used by itself, or do you have to purchase the duvet cover as well?
Top 10 Contributor
Top 10 Contributor
It looks nice with the duvet cover but it's nice by itself, too. I think it looks particularly good with the pillowcases as well, and if you got both you could skip the sheets and duvet and still come up with a really nice look if you were able to match your sheets to it.

The quilt says it's reversable. Is it white with red blossoms on the other side (not shown in picture)?

The quilt has the reverse of the sheet and duvet pattern. The sheet set and the duvet cover are white/cream with red flowers on them. The quilt is red with white flowers and it is the same pattern on both sides.
