For Women, By Women
The inspiration and design behind Alo is led by a
team of women who truly understand a woman’s
body and what yoga wear should be - beautiful,
flattering and comfortable. The incorporation of body

fabrics like organic cotton, bamboo and nylon
spandex is seen in everything we do.

allowing them to feel beautiful and confident in all
that they do.

we continually work to do our part and minimize
our carbon footprint. We share this message on
all Alo clothing in hopes to inspire further change
and to get people thinking about how they too can
define their own green.

Alo’s graphic tees
are printed on our
bamboo fabrication,
which is a unique
blend that is not
only eco-friendly,
but incredibly soft,
with just the right

Promoting a Healthy Lifestyle

I don't belong to a gym, however, I do try to work out at home when it fits in with my schedule.  It's not so much that I care HOW I look, it's how comfortable I FEEL. I have worn old t-shirt, which drive me crazy when they move . When you are on a treadmill, there is the constant up & down friction. If you are working out on the floor, then you run the risk that it exposes everything. Fit and comfort are of the utmost importance when working out! 
It was generous of them to offer to send me a jacket and the solid stretch pant. At that point I was thankful, but not overwhelmed. That was BEFORE I received them! I cannot tell you how great these are!!!! I put them on and they fit me like they are custom made for my body. For me that is most important. However, I get RAVE reviews on the fit! Everyone comments on them. And if they are female, they want their own pair! The jacket that Alo Sportswear sent was wonderfully comfortable and soft. It wasn't to form fitting and it was a nice longer length.  

Also, not really important, but a very nice touch was that they gift boxed my order! It was all packed in a nice gift box and wrapped in beautiful pink tissue with a card. It was quite lovely. I HIGHLY recommend ALO Sportswear for high quality, great fit, nice packaging, and great price points!
