Sattvic Bra - Best $5 I Ever Spent

 
 
Sattvic Bra
Did any of you get one of the $5 Sattvic bras that were in Loot? I bought a couple, one during each time they showed up in Loot. I love them, maybe even more than my Flow Ys. I layered it under my All Out Tank the other day for spin class. The All Out is a nice tank for low impact hot workouts but because it's so low cut I become distracted with the amount of cleavage I'm showing.  The Sattvic didn't actually add any more coverage in the front but it held the girls in place so I felt more secure and stopped thinking about my chest. The strap in the back definitely showed beneath the back of the All Out but I didn't care. I've tried layering a Flow Y under the All Out but the bottom elastic band is a lot more bulky than the Sattvic and the tank doesn't fit right. The Sattvic is seamless and the bottom of  is a just a continuation of the the bra so it fits under tanks with built in bras a lot more comfortably than Flow Ys. Another great thing about the Sattvic is that is has adjustable straps. It's made of bamboo and I found it very comfortable and cool to wear in spin. Now that I've test drove one while working out, I'd be willing to pay full price for its successor.

Hi Lulu Addict or anyone else that can help. I know this is out of topic. Was wondering what colours the clam diggers came in. I know there are currently 3 colours. Black, static and coal? Is it coal or heathered charcoal? Thanks.

Did the bra fit TTS? Not sure what sizes correlate to their XS, S, M and L sizing here

@ Zanna - One of the facebook sites - Kingston - has a photo. It's heathered charcoal.

@ Anon- I thought it fit true to size. The large is a 10.

I bought a few of these myself. I agree - a nice surprise. I have not worked out in it yet - it has been more of a bra for around the house, under a remix, etc. In my opinion the size small would fit a size 6 or bra size 34 A-B (can't comment on how it would work for a cup size any larger than that).

I bought one for $5 - thought is was a bargain. I bought an XS, which is perfect. Usually wear a size 4 in Lululemon's tanks and bras.

Just letting you know that the Pearl District FB has some new product photos (tang light space dye, more real life of the cool tunic, etc).

Wow, didn't know about that sale! If I ever see it I will snap up a few. I can try a few sizes for that price to see what's best!

I gotta agree... I wasn't sure about the sizes either so I ordered both an XS and a S (hey, they were only $5) ... I am normally a 6 in the sportsbras (32D) - the XS is a 4 and fits a little snug, which is great when the girls need a little more holding in; the S is slightly larger but still good for low impact or wearing around the house. Love them both and will keep them both ... I LOVE this lulu deal! Thanks, addict, for the tip!

I picked up four of the Sattvics, and I'm almost wishing I'd bought more! I love them for both everyday wear and for workouts (heck, I'm wearing one right now). I got them in XS, which correlates to a size 4. At $5 apiece they're a steal, and I agree with you--I like them so much, I'd be willing to pay full price for one or two more if they come back again in different colors.

I just grabbed one based on your reviews -- I got one last time for my daughter and she likes it but likes the crossover better -- but hey shes 12 -- what does she know, right?
