I get a catalogue through my door for "bamboo clothing" or "bam clothing", had anyone ordered from here before? Any experiences to share? Thanks x

I've seen a few recommendations for the t shirts on here

Haven't used them but I love bamboo as a fabric,

I currently have bamboo socks on if that helps.

I love bam. Usually get it for Christmas gifts. Socks, t shirts, hoodies, leggings... all lovely quality and they wash and last well.

My sister's bought quite a lot of stuff from there. If you're at all inclined to be sweaty/whiffy, bamboo is a godsend, as it just Does Not Smell. It's also very breathable, 'wicks away' moisture from your body/feet, and feels lovely and soft on.
BAM's not cheap tho.

I bought my son some who has sensitive skin and he said it was very comfortable. It washes really well
I bought a hoody last year and I love it - excellent quality and very very soft and comfortable. Again washes well

Good quality stuff. Soft and lovely. I am wearing one of the vests now. DH has lots of items too- pants, T-shirts, hoodies etc. Read the catalogue carefully where it tells you the weight as some items are fine (thin) and others much heavier.

Yes, my dh loves their stuff. I bought a couple of jackets (a bit like a fleece) and a nice top. I find it usually runs large except for the leggings, which were so small in the waist that they made me feel ill.

Love the socks
Love the T shirts, especially the long length ones.
Planning to get done sports leggings and a hoody.
It’s warm or cool as you need it to be, very soft, holds its shape etc
Love Bam.

Bamboo is viscose. It is just marketing.
I like viscose though.

I love their clothes. It’s like wearing a soft fluffy cloud. The socks especially are so cosy. I wear their stuff for relaxing at home or when I go for a run. Not cheap but so worth it and their sales are good value.

Viscose is made out of wood pulp, which could be bamboo. So bamboo is a type of viscose, but not all viscose is bamboo.

You can nearly always get bamboo socks from TK Maxx which brings down the price a lot. If not in the main sock section, they can often be found by the checkout.

Did you get the free socks? Best socks EVER. I am a convert. I might actually just buy all my socks and leggings from there from now on.

polyhymnia Thu 19-Oct-17 10:37:37

Yes, I too got the free socks and about to order more because I like them so much.

Love the socks and leggings, plus I have a few casual tops which are great. Not so keen on their sportswear though, they claim to be sweat wicking but they don't compare to brands like Nike or sweaty Betty. Great for lounging around in though!
