Synergy Organic Clothing Mystery Bundle Review- March 2017
Synergy Organic Clothing is a company dedicated to creating opportunities and empowerment for individuals in their supply chain. Their clothing items are made primarily from organic cotton (sometimes there is a small percentage of other fiber, like spandex, and they have a recycled poly line now as well). They are currently offering either a mystery item for $20 or a mystery bundle of 3 items for $50.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

There isn’t an information card with this mystery box.
Cara Top – Listed Value $32
This top wasn’t listed in their catalog but this item had a tag with a name and a written-in price, and the value is in line with similar tops from their shop, so I’m going to go with it. It is very comfortable but I think it is either too big or just generally unflattering for my figure type, I can’t decide.
You could only choose one size for the mystery bundle so I went with S because I figured any bottoms in S would fit me better, and that was true. But I really think I need XS on top since I have a small bust and narrow shoulders.
I am probably going to try wearing this with jeans and a cardigan so the excess of material on the sides and under the arms isn’t as obvious. Because it really is quite comfortable.
Sahara Full Skirt in Atmosphere/Ivory – Value $25 (on sale, but no longer available; MSRP $55)
This is a lightweight skirt (but not see through) and it actually does fit very well. I am 5’5” and I think it would be super short on anyone much taller than I am. The neutral colors will go with a lot of different items in my wardrobe, too (I like to do neutral bottoms and bold tops). Just be careful in the wind, as I found out when climbing the stairs to my deck. Thankfully the neighbors were not around.
Striped Dress in Fig – Value $61.60?
This exact dress is not available in the Synergy catalog so I have linked to a similar one (with a slightly different skirt type).
I like the colors but I don’t think the style is doing me any favors, mostly because of the loose style of the top again. The wide shoulders and the extra fabric make me look a lot bigger on top than I really am. (Also, for the record, you can’t wear a regular bra with this because the neck opening is very wide.)
I might try to save this one by wearing a pashmina or wrap or shawl, although it is kind of the wrong time of year for that.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $118.60 for the items in my Synergy Organic Clothing mystery bundle. That is definitely well above the cost of the bundle, even accounting for shipping, so I got my money’s worth. Unfortunately, although everything was super comfortable and also well-made, it turns out that several of the items weren’t so great for my body type. (There are fitted garments in the Synergy Organic Clothing shop, like this dress, which I love, but it was just luck of the draw that I didn’t receive any of them, I guess.)
What do you think of the Synergy Organic Clothing mystery bundle? Did you receive the same items or different ones?
