YMX by Yellowman: Review

I was provided with this opportunity via my affiliation with FitFluential. I was given the products at no cost to myself, but was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are my own!

I’m not one that is big on those shorthand text words. You know, like “OMG” or “TTYL” or “LOL”. I just don’t get them, and I try my hardest not to use them because I think they’re silly and would rather just spell out the expression. However, I broke my own rule a few weeks back while texting Will in regards to my new YMX by Yellowman tops. What did I say?

OMFG Will, these shirts are so soft!!

True story. And then I felt lame and Will made fun of me because I used “OMFG” instead of spelling it out. But whatever.

Back to my point. A few weeks ago, YMX sent me two tops in the mail:

YMX

The Dragon Long Sleeve and the Infinite Tribal Racerback Tank

Honestly, I receive a lot of fitness clothes in the mail and didn’t really think these were going to be anything exceptional. After all, as long as a workout top fits properly and doesn’t rub or chafe awkwardly, it’s good to go, right?

But you know what? I learned something new about myself and that is this: if a top is insanely, supremely soft, I will wear it every single day and continue to touch the fabric all day long. That is exactly what happened with both of these tops because I still can’t get over how flipping soft they are!

I looked up the materials and it doesn’t appear that they are woven with unicorn hair like I assumed. Instead, it looks like a blend of MadKool polyester and spandex now comprises my all-time favorite fabric. Throw in a little UPF 30+ and I’ve now got two sweet workout tops that have jumped into my weekly rotation.

Both YMX tops have come to CrossFit, snowshoeing, running, and even to work a few times just so I could get a feel for them.

I wore the tank to CrossFit (left) and the long sleeve while running and snowshoeing (right). And yes, I’m a hot mess after snowshoeing!

I realized quickly that the tops were as comfortable and functional as they are soft. They are very fitted, but I prefer my workout clothes to run towards the slim side rather than loose and baggy. I really liked the pocket on the back of the tank, too. Most cycling shirts have a similar pouch, but I thought it was wicked useful to have while running as well. Talk about the perfect place to stash chapstick, apartment keys, or Tally’s treats! (And yes, I bring treats while running with Tals. Call it bribery if you want, but it makes here stay right NEXT to me in anticipation of her next snack!)

YMX

As I mentioned, I received both of these tops for free which is awesome. However, if you check out the website, they definitely run steep on the price point: the  long sleeve costs $98 and the tank is $69. Normally, I would never advocate spending that much money on a workout top because life is expensive and that seems like an unnecessary cost. However, I am still marveling over the softness of these tops, and I actually think I am going to buy another tank in preparation for the upcoming cycling season. Yes, I think the softness is worth that much money. Poor Will has even had to listen to me rave about the softness on the phone, and he hasn’t even seen the shirts yet!

    I am OBSESSED with YMX!! I wearYMX every chance I get — even for work:) and YES, the awesomeness does come with a hefty price tag — but I have been able to grow my collections by stalking their promotions & when I can’t help myself, the splurge is ALWAYS worth it!! 🙂

    OMG, I can’t believe you used OMFG. SMH. You are really selling out to the teenybopper shorthand phenomenon. LMAO. But I guess YOLO. Anyway, TTFN.

      Do you know that i actually had to look up YOLO a few weeks ago because I didn’t even know what it meant?! Truth.

        hahaha. Nerdy pants. (I only know because I work with women who have tinybopper kids and I’ve had to ask in conversation!)

        P.S. How do I know when you reply to a comment without signing up to get emails for all of your comments?? I haven’t figured this one out yet.

    haha. I like Kayla’s comment 🙂
    Those shirts look super cute and love that they are super soft. I’m a sucker for super soft tops. Have to go check them out!

    Cute tops! I think the most I have spent is either on Running Skirts or a $55 Nike Hoodie that is a pullover and I really dont like it. I bought it when I first started running and love the look, little did I know, I would get so hot when I run that even in Winter I prefer short sleeves or tanks… lesson learned! Those are cute though, I will have to check out their site!

    Does a wetsuit count? Because that was freaking pricey. I am super jealous. That workout gear sounds awesome.

    Best workout material ever IMHO. 🙂 Thx for great review! I am a 2013 brand ambassador so… BUT well worth the price & YES they do have sales thru the year! 🙂

    I have two YMX shirts and a yoga outfit that’s a zip-up shirt and pants that I was lucky enough to win in giveaways and I love them. It’s all I can do not to turn the yoga outfit into pajamas because it’s so soft!
