Hello everyone! Don’t worry you are in the right blog. Someone (that’s me!) is totally dressing down to her yoga pants to bring you the spanking new active/yoga wear line of my favorite British brand BODEN! For a current yoga/pilates enthusiast (yes I really wear lipstick at the gym and yoga!) and semi-retired gym rat (I now do it at home) like me, being asked to collaborate and bring to life a line of active/yoga wear to compete with the reigning brands like Lululemon, Fabletics, among others – is such a distinct pleasure. ♥
Having worked a couple of times with BODEN here and here – I was almost sure beforehand that they won’t compromise on the quality and fit of their new venture into active/yoga wear. Being a freshman in this field – BODEN surely didn’t disappoint when I immediately took these goodies out on a spin at my yoga class (plus shopping afterwards!) last weekend.
Due to my rash-prone skin – I’m quite a stickler for details when it comes to yoga wear. Count me in as satisfied with the subtle seams of their pieces preventing any chafing or rubbing against my skin. Two thumbs up goes to their wonderful “wicking technology” that repelled sweat out of the fabric, making me stay cool as a cucumber while struggling with my warrior and mountain poses. And I can’t stop gushing at the snug wrinkle-free quality of the fabric which surely withstood my other gravity-defying asanas.**
Honestly I had a hard time choosing over their pretty versatile pieces. Instead of going all head to toe matchy matchy – I decided to mix and match. Just don’t forget to order about 1-2 sizes up – I’m normally a Size 4 but I’m glad I got these lovelies in a Size 8 which minimized all those stubborn bulges around my midsection.
Do check out and join my fun and precious linkups (and meet new friends along the way!) for the week. Thanks for the invites…..love you all fabulous ladies! ♥
