The North Face Tadasana VPR Sport Tank and Tadasana Wrap
The North Face makes yoga clothes! Yippee! In this review, I will take a look at the Tadasana VPR Sport Tank and the Tadasana Wrap.
For starters, I was really impressed with the Tadasana VPR Sport Tank. The tank is yoga-specific, meaning that it really stays put and keeps you covered when you find yourself in inversion poses. The fabric is stretchy, breathable, and really moves with you. Three qualities you seek when looking for yoga apparel; we all like to be in the moment, totally into the pose, and not worrying about what may or may not be hanging out while we are in a pose. The Tadasana VPR Sport Tank accomplishes this feat thanks to ShapeShifter fabric that is composed of 90% nylon and 10% elastane.
The Tadasana VPR Sport Tank features an internal sports bra, which is surprisingly supportive. Typically, I don’t get too excited about this feature because I still need a bit more support and add in a sports bra. However, this tank really does offer plenty of support and I can wear the tank solo to yoga and low-moderate impact exercise. The tank also features a racer back design with a twist (see photo below). The positioning of the straps, closer to the neck, help keep the tank in place when doing various movements with your arms, which often cause traditional tops to rise and fall. The Tadasana VPR Sport Tank has a generous length, hitting well below the hips. The Tadasana VPR Sport Tank not only performs well, but also looks great too! The slight v-neck in the front and unique back design help to set this tank apart. The tank is available in sizes XS to XL and runs true to size and is featured in 3 colors: gravity purple, pippi pink, and ludwig blue- similar to teal.
The Tadasana Wrap solves the problem of what to wear to and from yoga. The Tadasana Wrap is as cozy as your favorite sweatshirt, yet adds a little style and femininity. For starter’s, the wrap is designed for a female figure and cuts in to meet your figure, rather than remaining boxy like a typical sweatshirt. It also features attached ties that can be used to cinch down the wrap as tight or as lose as you like. For cooler days, I find myself ensuring as much skin is covered as possible, therefore tying a rather tight knot! I have also experimented with tying it in the back, which makes the top almost look like it is a blazer, although a sweatshirt version. The top features a generous sleeve length, making it all the more cozier. The wrap also features a drop-tail hem, which adds a bit of coverage to your backside. For those that are self-conscious while wearing yoga pants or leggings, the wrap hits just at the bottom of my behind.
The Tadasana wrap is made from french terry cotton with a touch of elastane (5%), which helps to keep the wrap from feeling too rigid. The top is available in size XS to XL and comes in four colors that are bound to work within your wardrobe: graphite grey, octopus blue, charcoal heather, and TNF black.
The Tadasana Wrap retails for $65, while the Tadasana VPR Sport Tank retails for $48.
