Pilates Wear - Zobha Grace Tank
Zobha Grace Tank
By Amy Leibrock

When I first found the new Zobha fitness apparel line online, I was captivated by its elegant styles and colors and classic eveningwear details. Now, with samples in hand, I’m happy to report that the line is more than just a pretty face. Founder and yoga instructor Jamie Hanna’s goal of creating clothes that embody the element of “grace” that attracts her to yoga shines through in the fabric, fit and performance of the pieces I tried.

My favorite is the Grace Tank ($56, sizes 2-10). It has a flattering scoop neck and long waist that won’t ride or roll up, and the cut around the shoulders is perfect for showing off strong Pilates shoulders. The variety of other top styles will cover and flatter a variety of body types and seem to run true to size. And you’ve gotta love the names—Audrey, Jayne, Ava—that evoke icons of Hollywood style.

The fabric, a wicking blend of Supplex and Lycra, has a cotton-y feel and matte look that made me feel zipped-up but not bound in. I do have one word of warning for Pilates regulars—the Straight Leg Capris ($60) are cut a little too low and will quickly ride down during a typical Pilates workout—try the Essential Pant Capris ($64, sizes 2-10) instead; they have better coverage. The line also includes a few hoodies ($64-$66) and seamless “yoga panties” (thongs and boyshorts, $16-$18), and they have maternity, men’s and children’s lines in the works.

BONUS: The folks at Zobha were kind enough to offer Pilates-Pro.com readers a 15% discount on website orders. Get yours by entering the code Z0815PPro at zobha.com from now until May 31, 2008. Happy shopping!
