Gear Review: Soybu Clothing

Earlier this year, I hit up the 4th Annual Blend Retreat when it was hosted in Boulder again (yay!) and one of my favorite pieces of swag was the Soybu Killer Caboose Leggings included. They were stretchy in all the right places and didn’t droop into the dreaded ‘diaper booty’ like so many leggings do. These leggings even stood up during a 4 mile hike in Utah!

Because I loved the legging so much – and really love supporting local companies – I reached out to Soybu to ask about hosting a giveaway so help get their product into your hands, too!

Founded in Colorado, Soybu is an active fashion apparel line built on the principle that the only sure thing in life is its unpredictability and the clothing reflects this, able to transition from studio to street and everything in between. Given that this is the general attitude of Colorado where our outdoor clothing also doubles as everyday wear, Sobyu is a perfect fit for both Coloradans and active women everywhere who want to feel good and look good in their activewear.

(I enlisted my friend Alex Lin to help me snap some photos in downtown Denver.)

Featured: Mira Tank, Taylor Hoody + Jennisa Capri

Local Love: Soybu // lgsmash.comAs a gal who works in a casual office and frequently wears athletic clothes to work, I love that this outfit fits just as well at 8 a.m. as it does at 7 p.m., after a long day at work and a lunch time bouldering session or late afternoon run.
Local Love: Soybu // My favorite piece of this outfit are the Jennisa Capris, hands down. As with the Killer Caboose leggings, these do not budge! The seaming helps keep the capris snug all day long and I love the gray pattern. The length of these capris is also spot on – the low-calf hit helps make these short legs look a tiny bit longer. (I might be tall…but no long legs over here!)

And for my long-waisted, short-legged sistas, the Mira Tank is a great choice. Before selecting a full outfit to review, I asked the Soybu team which of the tanks was the longest as it’s really tough for me to find a tank that fits properly and they recommended Mira, Cierra and Ariel. Wearing the Mira, I don’t feel the need to adjust it or pull it down every few seconds like I do with other, shorter tanks. As you can see in an above photo, it hits well below my hips.

I also really love that Soybu is affordable and great quality! While there’s a time and a place to pay $$$ for active wear, I really appreciate a company that makes great clothing, that fits and looks great and doesn’t break my bank.
