Society6 Yoga Mat Review

I’ve been getting back into yoga lately with the whole lockdown thing going on, almost practicing every day! I know a lot of other people are too and might be looking into getting a new yoga mat. Especially from Society6 since they have so many cute and unique designs created by artists like myself.

So I bought a yoga mat from Society6 with one of my mandala designs on it and thought I’d share a review of it today for those on the fence about getting one.

What I love about my yoga mat from Society6:

  • The artwork is vivid, crisp, and makes me happy to look at (especially since it’s my own art).
  • It has a nice, grippy texture (see close-up below).
  • It’s not too thick but squishy enough to be comfortable while lying down on the ground.
  • It comes with a carrying strap for easy transportation to and from the yoga studio.
  • Very affordable for the quality.
  • The perfect length for yoga practice (70″ long by 24″ wide, 1/2″ thick).

Quick note: When I first unrolled the yoga mat it had a strong chemical smell.

I assume a combination of the yoga mat material with the printing process made it smell that way.

To remedy this, my yoga teacher recommended rubbing essential oil on it. After doing that and airing it out overnight the smell did go away. Apparently this is common with a lot of yoga mats.

Beyond this initial unpleasant experience, everything else about the mat has impressed me and I absolutely love using it. Back when I was still going to in person classes, I always received compliments on the mat and people asking me where I got it from.

Society6 Leggings Review

I purchased a pair of leggings from Society6 a little while ago. After wearing them and washing them a few times I thought I’d write up a little review for those of you who are wondering what they’re like!

I have to say I absolutely LOVE these leggings.

They’re stretchy, comfortable, and the fabric is soft and silky to the touch.  The thick band around the top is sturdy and helps prevent muffin top, which is always good. I’m wearing a size Small in the image and usually wear small or medium in leggings, depending on the store.

The print, my White and Navy Blue Elephant Pattern, looks GORGEOUS. It actually looks a lot better and brighter in person than the preview images on their website.

See the contrast between the preview photos and the ones of me wearing them?  They look so different! The bright blue colour is actually much closer to my original image.

These leggings are great for working out and doing yoga but also just for lounging around the house and being comfortable.

Here is the product description from Society6’s website:

Nobody will judge you for wearing them all day, every day – they’re that comfy. That’s because these tights are constructed with breathable, antimicrobial polyester spandex that keeps you dry while staying cool.
