    Promising review: "Hands-down I love this and it is the nicest tunic top I have ever tried on. The material is sooo soft and kind of silky feeling but it's not silk material; it flows and falls so comfortably. The slits on the side do not bother me as my yoga pants or leggings are always high-waisted and even if I was wearing it with jeans I would still wear a very thin tank or bodysuit underneath." —Beachy1

    Promising review: "I have been searching for leggings that are comfortable, breathable, and thick for a long time. My daughter wears super soft Lululemon leggings, but I refuse to pay $100 for leggings. So, I’ve been searching for leggings that are the quality of Lululemon with a price point that I think is reasonable. I’ve tried every brand you can think of (even other Amazon brands) to no avail. That is, until I found these! Thick enough that I feel comfortable wearing them in public, soft enough that I can lounge in them and breathable so I can walk in them. Just perfect!" —SDH

    Promising review: "Honestly, I didn’t have high hopes ordering a dress off Amazon let alone a plus-size dress! This exceed any expectation that I could have had buying from a retail store. It’s incredibly soft! And it’s not sheer, so I’m glad I won’t have to wear a slip underneath. I personally sized up, because I know how this shape fits me; it fits perfect! I also love that I can dress it up or down. I will be back to buy more from Daily Ritual!" —Nikki Rupert
