Now for the pieces I received this month. Just as a heads up, I’m a 36B bra, a size medium top, and a large in bottoms (I wear about a size 10 in jeans). I’m also only 5′ 3″, so I’m on the shorter side.

Here’s the whole look. You might be able to tell how I feel about this month’s picks by my face. To me, they’re… interesting.

yoga jersey cardigan yoga jersey cardigan yoga jersey cardigan

Gaiam Peace Yoga Wrap in Charcoal Heather, Size Medium – Retail Value $48.00

I couldn’t find this item for sale online (though it was unavailable at a few places), so I just listed the MSRP value from the tag it came with. This jersey-like open cardigan is made from a rayon-spandex blend, so it has a super easy, stretchy feeling to it. The exterior is smooth, but the inside has the almost-terry-cloth feeling of the inside of a thin sweatshirt. It’s not the warmest, but it’ll do during savasana when I’m cooling down. The designs on the sleeves aren’t my fave (I would’ve preferred it to just be all solid gray), but the cowl neck and thumbholes sure are cozy.

teeki leggings turquoise teeki leggings turquoise

Teeki Envisions Hot Pant Leggings, Size Large – Retail Value $69.00

Ugh, Teeki, what to do with you… I love the colors and creative prints that this brand creates, and the fact that they make their thin yet super sturdy leggings with recycled plastic is right up my environmental alley. The only problem? Because they’re so thin, these leggings tend to do what tights do, and slide down my middle. I can work with tights, since I’m usually wearing them to a more passive activity like work or a restaurant, and I’m of course wearing them underneath a skirt or dress. But in a situation like a twisting, turning yoga class? The wide waistband loves to roll down, which is neither comfortable nor particularly flattering. It’s such a shame because they’re so darn cute! Maybe I can just wear these as weekend pants under tunic-length tops and long sweatshirts…

gray sports bra gray sports bra back detail

Splendid Studio Bra with Sheer Back Panel Size Medium – Retail Value $48.00

So. Um.

Hmmm.

So this bra was a little bit of a mind-bender for me. There are two layers to this bra. The outer layer features gray ribbed modal-cotton-blend fabric in the front and mesh in the back. The inner layer has mesh in the front (presumably as a kind of lining) and ribbed modal-cotton-blend fabric in the back. Both layers have thick silver elastic trim, but the outer layer fits kind of loosely. Meanwhile, the elastic band on the inner layer was super tight around my broader torso. It took me a few tries to make sure I was wearing the correct side out, and I think I’ve got it right, haha!

The other obvious “oh, okay” about this top is the mesh… tail?… in the back. Now, I’m not the lithest of yogis, so maybe a more waify body type could help this feature look more ethereal and less… odd. My broad back stretched the mesh pretty taut, the inner elastic pinched at my pudge in a less-than-flattering way, and the fact that the mesh was sewn to the elastic band trim at the edges helped encourage the weird crease that you see above. I don’t want to be a downer about this design, and I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt (this just wasn’t the right fit for my body!). That said, I’m giving a long, hard side-eye to that mesh flap…

If there’s anyone who’s worn this bra and really loved it, please please please comment! While some looks aren’t for me, I know that there’s always someone who will look like an absolute goddess in those same styles. What is your body type? How do you like to style this piece?

Oh also, this is another hard-to-find item, so I listed the MSRP value that was on the tag it came with!

The Verdict: This YogaClub box wasn’t my fave—each piece had some mild to serious flaws in terms of fit and style. But I’m not giving up on YogaClub that easily! While this box was a swing and a miss, it’s really rare that I don’t find something in a shipment that I don’t absolutely love and end up wearing all the time. (The leggings I’ve gotten from this box are in heavy rotation…) And while there were things I definitely did not like about each piece, every item also had something redeeming about it (the colorful, eco-centric leggings, the cozy cardigan, the… okay, no I really didn’t like that bra). Based on my previous good experiences, I’m pretty sure next month will knock it out of the park.

UPDATE: The lovely Mary from YogaClub reached out to me after reading about my less-than-perfect experience this month. Thanks, Mary! As a reminder, you can always reach out if there’s something that you just didn’t like—they’ll help you do an exchange for something that’ll work better! As I mentioned, I feel like this was an off month for YogaClub, but I’m usually into what I get, so I’ve got lots of hope for next month’s box. Meanwhile, the great customer service is a big perk!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Everyone’s box is curated to fit their specific style, needs, and size, so what I got in my box this month might be different than what you get. But that also means you might get something that you love even more! Get started here.

COUPON: Get 20% off your first box with code ANNA20

Value Breakdown: This box cost me $84.00 (the cost of the box, plus U.S. shipping), but I estimate I got $165.00 worth of product inside. That means that proportionally, I paid approximately the following for each item:

  • Cardigan – $24.44
  • Leggings – $35.13
  • Bra top – $24.44

  1. Important FYI!: The wonderful folks at YogaClub reached out to me about remedying my less-than-ideal bra experience! Just so you know, if you ever get something that doesn’t match your style, you always have the option to reach out and do an exchange. You’re not stuck with it forever!

    Many thanks to Mary from YogaClub for going the extra mile. Again – this wasn’t my favorite set of looks this month, but I’m usually pretty impressed with what I get. And the nice customer service is definitely a perk!

    • I agree! My first box was meh all around, leggings weren’t high waisted enough, the sweatshirt they sent was black cotton waffle weave (looked super comfy but with a white long haired dog I don’t even bother with black clothing) and the bra was fine…but not great. I emailed them and they asked for more details of what I WOULD like and then sent me three choices to pick from for each item, and when I wasn’t thrilled with all three of the bra choices they sent me three more and now I am in LOVE with the box I got. Plus they said my notes would go to my stylist and be in my file so they will keep it all in mind for future boxes.

      I had been planning on cancelling and lumping them in with Fabletics(arrrgh Fabletics!) but their impressive customer service changed my mind and now I tell everyone about them!

  2. I design sports bras for a living and this is well, um…just NO.

  3. That bra!!!!!🤣🤣🤣. I want to know who actually wears that.

  4. Yikes, I was just about to sign up for this. Thankfully, Anna’s bra changed my mind.

  5. That’s a strange bra! I love the teeki Pants, but they don’t work for me either. I really wish they would make their pants with a better waistband. After updating my activities in my preferences to only running, barre, and pilates I haven’t recieved any out of the box items. I prefer my workout clothes to be high quality and functional.

  6. That “bra” looks like it had some sort of sewing error when it was made! I would be pissed if I received that outfit at that price point kindof reminds me of Nadine west but this would be the Nadine west of yoga clothes! Lol

  7. I had a similar experience with my first Yoga Club box. Everything was just slightly “off” – which means I never really wear it. I cancelled, which turned into a saga. Too bad, because the quality and brands are nice!
