Review: BambooDreams Gumdrop Tunic & Short Set from Yala

From the time of their births, I have always selected my children's clothing based on comfort before style.  Luckily, it is not difficult to have both.  My preference for comfortable clothing for my children did not end when they got older.  This BambooDreams Gumdrop Tunic & Short Set from is everything I look for in an outfit for my daughter and then some.

This adorable outfit is made from 5% Spandex and 95% Viscose from Bamboo that is "organically grown in sustainably managed forests."  This fabric is incredibly soft and the Spandex offers a lot of give.  My daughter is wearing a 4T, which is her true size.  Both the top and pull-on bottoms fit her perfectly, but I think they will still fit her when she starts to move into a 5T.

Now that we have covered the comfort aspect, let us examine the style.  There are several details about this outfit that makes it boutique-quality.  Both the hem of the tunic and the shorts have a subtle pleated ruffle trim, which adds an extra touch of girliness to this outfit.  The kimono-style tunic boasts an empire waist with gentle pleats on both the front and back, making the tunic drape beautifully.

My daughter says her favorite part of this outfit is the striped pant.  My favorite part, aside from the comfort and style, is that this outfit can be machine washed and dried.  In fact, both pieces washed beautifully without any fading, running colors, shrinking, or even wrinkling.

The Gumdrop Tunic & Short Set retails for $49 and is available in the Raspberry/Peach and the Jade/Beach Glass color combinations.  This outfit is offered in size 12-18mos up to 4T.  To view more boutique fashions for women, men, infants, and toddlers, visit and Yala on Facebook, where you can also learn more about Yala's Green shipping practices.
