Top 5 Activewear brands in 2016
18 August, 2016
It’s been quite some time since I spoke about clothing on the blog, albeit still something I am super passionate about (says my 3 draws full of activewear), but I am back into it with my top 5 activewear brands and what sports/classes to try with them…
Just look for your “fitness jam” below and click on the links for my personal choices!
BONDS SPORT – GYM & YOGA
Pictured above are my Bonds threads, being one of the Bonds Brand Ambassadors does in fact mean a lot of Bonds wear, my draws are full. Their bright colours are an attraction but also I find that their support crops work really well for most workouts – dance included. Their sport range really is a fun array of pieces, however their lycra pants are a little more for light workouts like a weights session or yoga.
Try these pieces: Leggings, Top
LUR’V – RUNNING, BOOT CAMP, CROSSFIT, BOUNCEFIT
If there was ever a brand that made you look hot damn good whilst being sweaty, then Lur’v is your go to. Their collections seem to go from brightly coloured flamingo and palm trees to sleek and simple 2 pieces. I love their range because you can mix and match with the whole collection and never stuff up your look – they have done the ground work for you!
Try these pieces: Crop, Legging
FIRST BASE – BOXING, SPIN, HIIT
I am not going to lie, I wore my First Base leggings to death, I think they have been through around 180 washes! They do slip a little in the crotch but the athleisure wear pieces are REALLY comfortable and really down my style alley! I do basically all workouts in the crops and pants, however as I say, I have to pull the pants up a little. It’s a common problem when you have black shiny legs though from all accounts of activewear. These guys are my go to for casual wear and in general looking freakin’ cool in activewear.
Try these pieces: Jumper, Legging, Crop
LORNA JANE – THE JUNGLE BODY, DANCE, ROCK CLIMBING, CIRCUIT TRAINING
Best. Leggings. Ever. I don’t care what happens in my life, but it seems better when I am wearing LJ Leggings. They are my go to leggings, always, all of them, every single pair! They all fit perfectly, I NEVER pull them up and they sit on that ass like they have been painted on. The Jungle Body workouts are a perfect example, with full body workouts you move SO much. So…if you want leggings for high intensity workouts….the most effective thing you can do is walk into an LJ and just buy them!
Try these pieces: Leggings, Crop, Jacket
LIQUIDO ACTIVE – GYMNASTICS, REFORMER/MEGAFORMER, AERIAL YOGA
I am going to forgive these guys for their leggings…I mean I find it hard to find leggings that ACTUALLY go full length for me anyway with my gigantor legs, but the comfort that liquido bring totally out does my pouty face on length. They are on the brighter side of life when it comes to activewear however their comfort is simply amazing. I wear them for everything.
