GOLD WINNER + EDITOR’S CHOICE
Safe – Made from excellent non-toxic materials. 83% GOTS certified organic cotton, 17% spandex.
Responsible – BAY Active’s mission is to create the highest performance active and yoga wear in organic, natural and closed loop regenerated fabrics. Their supply chain is entirely transparent, from field to finished product, mitigating waste and ensuring all operations are certified wherever socially possible, and all wages are either award, or above award.
The knitting facility they work with in Melbourne is a world leader in the recycling of precious grey water. The fit out in their Byron Bay flagship store is almost entirely created from repurposed fixtures and salvaged materials. In store carry bags are a compostable dirt bag, and they opt for either paper mailers, or compostable bags when fulfilling online orders.
Their collections are offered in an inclusive size range of 6 – 18 representing today’s modern woman, and are built to stand the test of time.
The Bay Active Forever Tights are super flattering and supportive with a firm but not too tight waistband. “I can’t believe they’re organic cotton” was my initial reaction. It’s so relieving to find beautiful, functional activewear made from a majority of natural fibres.
Feels like I’m not wearing pants at all! They fit just right and the organic cotton not only makes it a great sustainable alternative, but hugs in the right places and I don’t feel the need to re-adjust when wearing. I also love the little hidden seamless back pocket — perfect for safely storing my earpods and/or cash for getting a smoothie/coffee whilst out and about. I personally LOVE high rise leggings and these were a wonderful fit!
I love that these leggings have an extra wide panel that softly follows my waistline, not cutting in and finishing just above my belly button for the most flattering cut ever. It allows me to confidently wear just leggings and a crop which I thought having had 2 kids would never happen again! Thick, super-soft, comfy and high-quality material and also not so sporty looking that you couldn’t pop on a nice top and head straight to lunch. Absolutely gorgeous.
