Onzie! Review from Jels

I have seen Onzie on Anthropologie's and Nordstrom's websites, and they were so kind to mail both Mer and I an outfit to try out! Here is my review.

I chose the Capri Crop in Illusion print in size Large. The crops are so thin and silky, almost swim-like fabric. Although they are a print and thin, they aren't see thru! I wonder if I could have sized down, as the waistband was a little on the looser size. For me, I'd prefer a higher rise, as these were a little low and, truth be told, I do not have a flat belly. So it would totally work for those who enjoy a lower rise waist. The colors are super saturated and very unique. I did see a girl wearing these crops when I was down at the harbor this weekend, and they looked super cute on her! So it looks like people are taking notice of Onzie's awesome patterns and unique color combos.

For the top I chose the All In One Tank in Cali Palm/Black, also size large. The waistband is soooooo comfortable, and I love this print! The straps are small, so with my 36DD chest they started to dig in a little after while. But that is true for all skinny straps on me, not these in particular. This top would be awesome for hot weather, hot classes, or anytime when you want to feel the breeze while not baring it all.

The folks at Onzie also included their Elastic Tank Top, which is a One size Fits All piece, and both Mer and I are going to show you how it fit on our very different body types. I wore their Criss Cross Bra in Grateful Tie Dye underneath, and this pattern might be my favorite one in their collection! Love the faded turquoise and greyish purple, and it looks awesome peeking out from under most anything. As far as bras go, I'll be sticking to non-bouncy activities in it, as it's less support than I need for gym. The tank top feels like wearing nothing, and I love the giant elastic racerback! For me, the fit was looser in the underarm, as my chest filled out the looser parts in the front. I think it would look awesome on someone with a slightly smaller chest than me, as I love the drape on the models featured on their site.

All in all, Onzie is offering some very colorful and unique pieces, and I LOVE that it's all made here in the U.S.! Amazing. I love that someone a few counties south sewed these pieces. Pretty sure you're all gonna be seeing a lot of girls around town rocking these prints, cause we all want to wear fun clothes to sweat in! Thank you so much to Onzie for allowing us to try their brand out and share it with you.


  1. Love the elastic back tank...looks great on you! Thanks for the review.

  2. Hmmm... Sorry Jels, I think you should stick with Lulu (as will I). The colours are garish (the bra is pretty though), the fabrics look cheap and they can't even come up with their own designs as they've totally knocked off Lululemon designs. No thanks.

  3. The Onzie pieces look great on you-- and I also love the tie die print! I'm a fan of Onzie as well-- in particular, their side string shorts are my favorite for bikram yoga :)

  4. Yay! You tried Onzie! I loved my Onzie pieces! Love your bra! I almost got that color!
