Arêt Basewear Launches Tomorrow!
By my standards, a good bra is really hard to find. This reason alone is why I’ve been holding on to the same old ratty sport bras for years on end. I know they work. Are they cute and functional? Would I be psyched to rip off my shirt on a hot day? Not really. When I discovered Arêt Basewear, all those things changed.
I got to check out their original line of handmade tops, and let me tell you, they are rad. Made of 82% nylon/18% spandex, the basewear is lightweight, breathable and quick drying. The 4-way stretch fabric moves with you when you’re dyno-ing to your next hold or getting set up for a tough yoga pose. You don’t have to be afraid of an accidental nip slip. They look cute and are ultra comfortable. I’ve been living in mine day in and day out, to the point where my piece is falling apart at the seams. But fear not, the basewear is factory produced and iron tough these days.
They come in two styles: Toura low cut and Toura high cut. The basewear I’ve been rocking is the low cut because my ladies are as petite as can be. It’s awesome for day-to-day wear—I don’t even wear regular bras or bralettes anymore, backpacking, hiking, climbing and hot yoga. I love the Toura straps for those moments where I’m inclined to take my shirt off. It’s supportive and technical, but still aesthetically pleasing. I’ve worn the Toura and slept in it for days on end. It’s just as comfortable as the first time I put it on. The straps don’t irritate or dig into my shoulders. I’m not really a fan of it for high impact workouts; I find that they don’t keep my boobs from bouncing as much as I would like. Hopefully that problem is solved with the high cut bras, which are supposed to be more supportive for bustier folks.
Each Toura retails for $64. Your purchase supports a local, California-made brand with an environmentally-conscious footprint and forward-thinking ideas in the outdoor industry. Psyched to see what else these ladies come out with! Use code littlegrunts-basewear-10 for 10% off your purchase.
I was given the chance to test out the Toura low cut prior to release.
