Oh lululemon, I don’t know how you continue to make the cutest workout clothes, but season after season, you do!
Earlier this month, I received an email from lululemon with an invitation to try out some of their latest apparel and I’m pretty sure I took no less than 10 seconds to respond.
As a group exercise instructor, personal trainer and fitness lover, I wear workout clothing all day every day and jumped at the opportunity to add some functional, adorable and flattering workout apparel to my wardrobe… Especially since the majority of my previous workout tops and sports bras were quickly becoming too tight and a handful of my capris and leggings were beginning to dig into my sides more and more as each week of my pregnancy passed.
I felt like a kid on Christmas morning as I selected a few new tops, crops, pants and bras. With so many colors, patterns, cuts and styles out there, the choices were plentiful and I felt very grateful to have the opportunity to choose a few gorgeous pieces of apparel to replenish the smaller and more form-fitting workout clothes I am no longer able to comfortably wear.
Here’s a breakdown + review of some of my latest lululemon favorites!
Lululemon Springtime Favorites
When it comes to workout tops, I am a tank top lover through and through. I sweat a ton when I teach spinning classes and gravitate toward lightweight, breathable tops like the 105 F Singlet tank.
It’s long enough to cover most of my booty (and that’s saying something since I have a very long torso) and I’m hopeful it will be a great tank I can wear as my baby bump grows since it’s not restricting and very comfortable. I paired it with the strappy Energy Bra (love the extra coverage in the front!) and the In The Flow crop in heathered pigment blue.
The crops are a personal favorite because of the thick, forgiving waistband. They are a pregnant woman’s dream, as they don’t dig into my sides at all and simply hug my body without constricting my belly. Heaven!
To add to my desire to expand the number of flowy tanks in my fitness apparel wardrobe, I also picked up the mint green Yogi Racerback tank that I’ve been living in!
It’s soft and thin without feeling flimsy and currently on sale! (Since lululemon’s sale items never last long, I also think the the Modern Racerback and What The Sport tanks look quite similar.) It’s been a great tank for every workout I do on a regular basis – spinning, barre, strength training, fast-past circuits. The tank moves with my body and keeps me cool. Win, win.
I was also fortunate enough to pick up one of lululemon’s Vinyasa Scarves which I was especially excited about since I’ve heard a handful of women rave about it at my local Pure Barre studio.
The scarf can be worn 10 different ways and while I typically wear it looped around my neck twice, I’ve pulled it over my head to shield my hair from the rain and love unbuttoning it at home to wear as a comfy shrug as well. It’s great for chilly outdoor activities during the fall, winter and spring but I also really like simply throwing it on top of some of my more casual outfits to run around town!
In the above photo I paired the scarf with the silver Rest Less Pullover top (also currently on sale). I selected this pullover after reading tons of positive reviews online that highlighted its flattering fit and thick, durable material. During the winter, I was in the market for a top that would be a great outdoor running or hiking top – one that’s warmer than a basic long-sleeve tee but not as hot as a jacket – and this top seemed like the perfect choice!
I’m also wearing a pair of my beloved Wunder Under pants. They are so smoothing over the booty and way more flattering than your average pair of black leggings. In the past I’ve purchased the reversible Wunder Unders to get more bang for my buck and this time around I did the same and selected pair of reversible Wunder Unders with a feminine floral band on one side and a plain black band on the other.
The final look I put together centered around a pair of mesh tights that immediately caught my eye.
The Inspire Tight II is made with Luxtreme® technical sweat-wicking fabric and offers support without causing friction or chafing.
The mesh detailing and cloud-print waistband are not lost on me since I think they make a simple pair of gray tights 10 times cuter!
And I love the little zipper pockets – they’re perfect for stashing a house key during our morning and evening walks with Sadie.
The thick headband I’m wearing is the Fringe Fighter headband and I was honestly a little surprised by how much I liked it when I slipped it on! I wear a headband almost every single time I work out to fight flyaway hairs and typically gravitate toward skinny headbands, but I really liked the way this one stayed in place and kept the hair and upper forehead sweat out of my face when I wore it to teach spinning.
Sadie loves it, too! Haha!
Thank you again to lululemon and ShopStyle for the opportunity try out some wonderful new fitness apparel. I am very grateful!
Question of the Afternoon
- Do you have any lululemon favorites that you swear by?
Lululemon’s Wunder Unders are the jam but I also really, really like their workout tanks, mostly because they’re flattering, feminine, functional and usually quite long, too!
