I’m excited to bring you a review on Wolven Threads, an activewear company with patterns that are inspired by the sacred geometry found all around and within us.

Wolven Threads draws their creativity from natural patterns in nature and the vibrant colors of Indian art, celebration and the roots of yoga. The patterns are designed by designers Kiran Jade and Will Ryan and are made to truly reflect the spirit of a yogi – radiant, wild and free.

Wolven Threads is a sustainable company and makes leggings recycled from water bottles and plastics.
When you wear Wolven Threads, you are taking care of mother nature and the Earth we live on.

They also donate 5% of their net profit to provide yoga to at-risk youth. They’re a brand with values that I can definitely get behind.

With that said, let’s delve into our Wolven Threads review!

Wolven Threads Review: Heliocentric Legging

I don’t usually wear pink, but the design on the Heliocentric leggings were too mesmerizing to pass, hence this Wolven Threads review. I was heading to Hawaii soon and knew these leggings would be perfect the moment I saw them online.

They arrived within a few days in a tiny recyclable package. I took them out and admired how beautiful they looked in person. I was excited I’d be wearing these on my trip to Wanderlust Oahu next week!

Let’s get into the review!

Wolven Threads – Heliocentric Leggings (Try On)

#1 Size: I ordered my true size in Wolven Threads. I ordered a size small and am a size 6 in lululemon for reference. The fit was perfect. The leggings stretched out almost immediately and contoured to my body. During practice, when the fabric combined with sweat, the leggings became grippy and were supportive throughout class.

Over time, the leggings stretched out a bit, however, it did not have a loose fit. They felt more relaxed after a few wears and were still incredibly comfortable. The fit is exactly like Niyama Sol.

#2 Style:  Wolven Threads makes long and cropped leggings, shorts, crop tops, bras, swimwear and they recently released loungewear in their Spring 2018 collection.

#3 Inseam:  The inseam measures 29″ and is great for tall ladies! The leg opening bunches up around my ankles (I am 5’5″ tall) and can be worn over my heel.

#4 Rise: The leggings have a high rise fit. The waistband sits 1″ above my navel.

#5 Waistband: The leggings have a tall waistband. The waistband measures 5″ tall and can be worn folded over. There are no pockets in the waistband. Product details are printed into the fabric on the inside back of the waistband.

The waistband sits tall, but I still had to pull my leggings up from time to time. Slippage is usually the nature of tall seamless waistbands.

Should I Buy Wolven Threads?

Yes you should buy Wolven Threads! I love how true they are to their mission of being “sustainably sexy.” Not only is their fabric eco-friendly, but I also love how soft they feel on. I would wear these while lounging around and while out at brunch with my girlfriends.

The geometric patterns are fun and great for yoga and festivals like Burning Man or Lightning in a Bottle. I am definitely a fan and look forward to adding more Wolven Threads to my vault!
