Tasc Performance: Bamboo That Performs

Activewear brand Tasc Performance caters to people looking for eco-friendly wear—which happens to be an emerging trend in the active retail world. The clothes in this line are made out of organic cotton, viscose from bamboo and elastane. I won’t lie, I hesitated when I saw cotton on the materials list. It’s not the ideal fabric to sweat in. But I’m here to let you know that you should get sweaty in this gear. It’s not flaw-free, but it is feathery soft and performs as well as other top brands. This line is also very affordable, too. Plus, each piece from this line is a blend of organic cotton and sustainably sourced bamboo. In addition, it is certified to be free of harmful chemicals, making it a potentially good option for consumers with sensitive skin.

Basic Racer Tank


This ultra-soft tank is the perfect tOP for working out or even just wearing out during warmer nights. I wore it to an outdoor music festival, and I loved how well this breathed. I never felt overheated once. It is also lightweight, but molds to your body, too. The scoop neck and racer back are flattering styles that would probably look good on most people. Best of all, this tank is UPF 50+ so it offers some protection from the sun. It’s plain, but it gets the job done.

Surprise Stripe ½ Tights – in Black Storm

What I loved most about these capris was the style. The gray dye stripe running down the inner pant leg helps elongates the leg and is such a fun, unique design element. The diagonal stripe on the thigh also flatters, but it does dig into the leg a bit. This pair probably wouldn’t be a good fit if your legs have a tendency to swell during exercise or if your quads are really muscular. These are soft, but I didn’t find them quite as breathable as the tank. But despite that, this pair was moisture-wicking and smelled great even after working out. Beware: these DID NOT pass the bend test. I’d avoid any yoga or any other bend-heavy exercise unless you want to give everyone a clear “rear view.” Or just wear all black briefs with these.

Bambooty Thong

I’d for sure size down with these as the panties seem to run big. My typical size large fit, but did feel like it was just about to fall down. I tried shrinking these in the dryer, but that didn’t really work. True to the rest of the line, this thong was very soft. So soft that it’s the kind of underwear that you forget about when you’re wearing. These definitely trapped more moisture than I would have liked, but they’d be fine for a typical not-too-sweaty workout.
