Hey there ladies, Coach Holly here! After many years in the gym, I’ve worn just about every brand of fitness clothing on the market. I remember when the only place to get clothes to wear to the gym was a sporting goods store— when yoga pants were called stirrup pants and we wore sweatpants and crop tops, not $98 leggings!
So trust me when I say that I have wasted a lot of time and money on the wrong clothes, and endured quite a few embarrassing moments squatting, deadlifting and sweating through transparent tights and tops. I’m here to help keep you from making the same mistakes I have, so I’m bringing you my reviews!! Be on the lookout for the good, the bad and the really, really sweaty— every week, in my “Gym Outfit of The Week” #GOOTW
Tights: lululemon, Align pant
Top: Gap Athletic
Tank: lululemon, racerback
Kicks: New Balance, 515’s
Bag: lululemon, Festival Bag
My stats for sizing reference:
These. Pants. Are. Life. You know that material that feels like butter? Like the inside of fleecy sweatpants but better, because it doesn’t make you overheat all day? That would be these pants.
SIZING: I sized down in these. Size 2. I’m normally a size 4 in Wunder Unders, Inspires, Pace Crops, Speed Tights, etc.
SWEAT TEST: These pants failed miserably in other colors like the pinks and lighter greens, but the darker colors like this didn’t show as much. I know from experience that it’s the material. They are so cottony and soft that the material just soaks up sweat, but shows it as well. The lighter teal pants that I have in this color are the same way. Within five to six minutes, I already had the “V” sweat line on the crotch, and of course left a sweaty snail trail on every bench when I got up. By the time I left, I looked like I sat in something— like a pool. Oh well! Would it stop me from buying them? No. In fact, I have backup pairs of each color.
These pants move very, very well. I especially appreciate that they don’t fall down or get baggy throughout my workout— no yanking on them all day, and they are not see through at all!
Cottony, slightly stretchy, a little bit on the long side, but doesn’t go over your booty if it’s too long on you. I think it looks really cute tied at the side.
SIZING: on point, I’m wearing my regular size 6 like I normally do in other tops from lululemon.
Lightweight and breezy, flowy, very comfortable, breathable due to it being a sort of “burn-out” material. You can wear it draped off of one shoulder or it stays well on both shoulders without slipping.
SIZING: Size small
