The Beyond Yoga sample sale is this weekend at Smashbox Studios in Culver City. The luxury athleisure/yoga brand is known for their body-positive messaging with sizes XXS-XXL. This sale is two days and only happens once a year. Plus, any sample sale that does not make me drive to Hollywood or Beverly Hills is already a winner in my book!
I’d never bought Beyond Yoga gear before, so I went into Nordstrom the weekend before to try on a few styles. Since this was my first time hitting the Beyond Yoga sample sale, I wasn’t sure what the fitting room situation would be like either. Even though sample sizing can be a little off, trying on the brand ahead of time gave me a better idea about their sizing and fit. Turns out, there is a shared dressing room with mirrors at the sale. For the more bold, there are full-length mirrors at the end of some rows where you can try on out in the open. Careful, some are next to windows facing the street.
Products are on rolling racks organized by size and grouped by style. Beyond Yoga employees said they will be restocking styles throughout today and tomorrow. If you’re a size small, you have hit the jackpot. Over half the sale is size small or extra-small. Medium, large, and extra-large have about 2-3 racks each. Try stuff on! I bought three different size leggings. Some leggings in my regular size wouldn’t go past my thighs, but then others in a size down were roomy.
There was a ton of Kate Spade x Beyond Yoga too! Bras, tanks, tees, jackets, leggings – you name it. Again, most were size small. The Kate Spade collab products are the same price as everything else.
Samples & Defects
Here’s the really exciting part, there are bins of defective items and true samples for $5! My mom was a sewing teacher, and I have my sewing machine in my apartment; therefore, $5 for $100 leggings that have some popped stitches? Score! Some of the samples are in really rough shape though. Again, I recommend trying on all of these. Some leggings that appeared to be flawless turned out to have a run down the entire leg that only showed when I put them on. I bought seven pairs of leggings for just $35! Yeah, they’ll take a little TLC, but they would cost over $700 retail. For that price difference, I’m happy to make some minor repairs.
Rompers/Jumpsuits Dresses $25
There is a parking garage across the street from Smashbox Studios (yay) that’s $16 for 4 hours (boo). There’s also some free street parking in the area if you can find it.
No large bags are permitted in this sale. Cash and cards are both accepted.
