Since I created a capsule wardrobe I am more careful what items enter my wardrobe. As everyone says quality over quantity, but what does it mean? Every item in your capsule wardobe needs to work hard for you, it shouldn’t be thrown away after a few wears. This is exactly why I fell in love with OrganicBasics. I would never think of a simple looking t-shirt can be so soft and work hard for you. To make your decisions easier I decided to review Organic Basics products.
Sustainable Brand Organic Basics Review
I was so excited when package arrive, I was expected it nicely wraped in a paper bag, but it arrived in a plastic, I was a little bit disapointed until I looked at it closer and learned the bag was actually 100% recycled poly mailer. Good company makes a good choices.
When I opened the bag there was nicely sitting 3 little colourful paper bags. Each little package contains single item or set when it is sold as a set.
When I touched this t-shirt I couldn’t believe how soft it was. I was expecting something more like synthetic materials even when I new OrganicBasics items are made of organic cotton. Just because I didn’t know I made up my own imagination about the material. This t-shirt was something what I never think of I never even know something so soft can exist. And what actually means SilverTech? It is antibacterial thread for odor control. You don’t need to worry, this t-shirt won’t let you down when you rush for important meeting. I tested it really hard as I always rush throught the stations. It didn’t stick after all day. Normally I feel uncomfortable after a few hours, but not in this tee. T-shirt contains 12% silver yarn, 6% elastan and 82% organic cotton.
I prefer looser fit, but I wanted to try something different. In description is, slim fitted t-shirt fits true to size. So I went for size Small. I am 160cm tall and 59 kg just for reference. It fits exactly as described. As I am quite short it comes little bit longer but not too long to leave too much extra fabric around the hips and when I tack it into the trousers it still looks tidy. For longer ladies it will be a perfect fit to sit nicely on the hips without showing the skin. Or just to keep your midle part covered and warm. Elastan gives it a bit of stretch but no too much, t-shirt is not skin tight at all. When it comes to sleeves the lenght nicely cover arm pits but is not restricted for movement. You know when you bend and something restrect your move. This t-shirt doesn’t give you any of that. You can move as much as you like. And last but not least I need to mention the crew neck. Some nearly killing me, but SilverTech has a slightly lower crew neck what nicely shows a bit of skin and doesn’t restrict your breathing.
After a few wears I know I need a black as well. And definitely will go for Small again.
I wanted to try SilverTech starter pack but as it comes with sports bra, what I don’t like to wear everyday, I went for Organic cotton set. It includes bralette and hipster bikini.
As with the t-shirt even bralette is so soft and comes in a thick cotton. What is great. By the first look I thought it will be high on the front but it is not at all. Thanks to a thicker band it is really comfortable bralette with a true to size fit. If you are not sure about the size or you are between the sizes I would recommend to go for a size bigger, it has strong band and 3 levels of fastening so it has enough adjustment. Cups are large enough to cover the breasts properly. I don’t like when bra cups are small and doesn’t give enough coverage and support. Not to mention it doesn’t look good under the t-shirts. Overall it is definetely bralette what you need in your underwear drawer.
Same as bralette it is made of organic cotton. It comes with thick waist band what gives it nice feeling and doesn’t create the unneccesary folds. Panties are perfectly cut, meaning cover nicely and comfortably whole bottom and they are nicely cut at the front – not too low not too high. Doesn’t dig into the skin. Comfiest cotton underwear I ever worn. With the undies you need to be careful and honest about your size. As much as I would love to wear a size Small I followed measurement and went for a size Medium. They fit perfect. So if you unsure just follow brand measurements.
