I absolutely love bamboo clothing for three reasons! Clothes made from bamboo are super soft (so they feel great), they drape nicely (so they look great), and they are made from sustainable resources (so they are eco-friendly). One of my favorite makers of womens bamboo clothing is Cariloha. They have bamboo t-shirts, activewear, underwear, and other apparel choices. I have partnered with Cariloha to bring you this bamboo clothing feature. They have provided a few Cariloha bamboo items in order to facilitate reviews and the reader giveaway at the bottom of this post!
The Benefits Of Bamboo Clothing
If you are looking to shop more sustainably, you are sure to love bamboo clothing. Bamboo is a sustainable, renewable resource that grows back quickly and doesn’t require the large uses of pesticides that many fabric crops do. Bamboo crops keep our soil stronger, our air cleaner, and our environment healthier.
I already think cotton is pretty soft, but clothes made from bamboo are super soft. They have a silky, luxurious texture. You will definitely feel the difference! You will also see the difference because they drape better!
Super lightweight and breathable, apparel made from bamboo viscose helps keep you feeling cooler. Bamboo clothing is naturally moisture wicking material and it is a favorite of mine for outdoor activities during warm weather. Bamboo naturally repels odors to help keep you feeling fresher.
Cariloha Reviews: Cariloha Bamboo T-Shirts And Activewear
Bamboo V-neck Tee
I love the super soft fabric blend (70% viscose from bamboo / 30% organic cotton). It turns a regular t-shirt into something a little dressier and nicer looking. The v-neck cut is perfect and not too low or too high. The color vibrancy is great and it holds its color with washing. Thanks its naturally thermal-regulating properties I feel much more cool and comfortable in this bamboo t-shirt. Great to wear with almost anything from shorts to jeans to a dressy skirt. The sizing was perfect. I consider myself to be an extra small and the XS t-shirt was form fitting without being clingy.
Bamboo Crew Tee
The fabric blend on the crew t-shirt was a little different (52% Viscose from Bamboo / 48% Polyester). I liked it just as much as it feels very soft and looks a little more elegant than your average t-shirt as well. The crew neck tee had a nice neckline and fit true to size. It was also form fitting without feeling clingy. I like the vibrant color and it holds up well in the wash.
Bamboo Pieced Athletic Cropped Legging
I wanted to try bamboo workout clothes as well, so I selected a pair of bamboo cropped leggings. The material blend (66% Viscose from Bamboo / 30% Nylon / 4% Elastane) is very stretchy and comfortable. I also love the design- so many nice features for athletic leggings. They have stylish hip pockets on both sides if you want to stow you hands while you walk or stash a tissue for while you are out and about. They also have a handy zipper pocket over your rear end so you place your phone, id, or key in a comfortable, concealed place while you run. These leggings run small, in my opinion. I usually wear a small in pants or a size 4 or 6 but the small cropped leggings felt too tight on me. My more slender teenage daughter has appropriated them and she couldn’t be more thrilled with them.
