So, first a confession. Harrison DJs for Lululemon and gets paid in Lulu merchandise. I have gotten pretty accustomed to the nicest workout clothes that just do everything exactly right (really the designers at Lulu think of everything). So I've been working out in these $100+ exercise clothes that I've never paid for. But the DJ shifts aren't rolling in like they used to so now I'm back to the basics: shopping clearance and outlets and Kohl's. Here's what I have my eye on:
$7.99 Xersion Loose Mesh Racerback Tank Top @ J.C. Penney's (hello bright and yes please to mesh inserts that let the breeze in)
$8.49 C9 Champion Sports Bra @ Target (I own two of these and they are so raggedy because I always wear them and never get around to replacing them).
$11.99 Tek gear ® banded bottom racerback workout tank @ Kohl's (do not underestimate the power of the breeze coming in that hole in the back)
$12.95 Craft Sportswear Pro Cool Singlet Top - UPF 50+, Racerback (For Women) from Sierra Trading Post (mesh sides, wicking fabric, cooling layer. yes)
$14.99 Under Armour Rally Shorts from 6pm.com (I have these shorts now and they are so perfect - they don't ride up, they fit my butt, and there is tons of mobility. Just one problem: I'm pretty sure my cheeks hang out the bottom. I'm trying this pair next because they're longer)
$12 Skinny Fly Away Tamer Headband @ Lululemon (velvet lining keeps it in place, sweat wicking fabric keeps sweat out of your eyes, and the headband makes sure I don't have a zillion tiny flyaways matted to my face in sweat).
A lot of people recommended Fabletics to me and here is how I felt about my experience: $25 off my first outfit made for a great price. Otherwise I'm not so impressed with the prices. My outfit was leggings and a tank. I love the tank, not so wild about the leggings. The leggings fit awkwardly and the fabric was HOT aka not breathable, and the size that fit my booty does NOT fit my waist - as soon as I drop into down dog everyone gets a full moon. Not cute. Anyone else have similar or different experiences? Kelly has a really thorough review of her experience and she liked her leggings a lot more than I liked mine.
