Let’s Get Physical | Lucy Activewear OOTD

Not too long ago we posted about attending an amazing event with Actress and Dancerobics Icon, Marilu Henner, for Always Discreet. We were asked to come dressed ready for a fun workout, so we looked no further than Lucy Activewear for our cute and comfortable attire. Lucy Activewear offers a wide array of stylish and flattering athletic apparel for women. Our goal for the event was to achieve a smooth look which also felt secure – there’s nothing worse than having to tug on or adjust your workout gear whether you’re in the middle of working out or just walking around. Luckily that was not an issue thanks to the Lucy Take Me The Distance Singlet and the Lucy Novelty Perfect Core Leggings.

The lightweight and breathable racer-back, Take Me The Distance Singlet, boasts moisture-wicking jersey fabric, with no-chafe flatlocked seams (seriously never even felt them), an adjustable waist Shock cord, a back zip pocket for absolute necessities, and of course, it you’re running or working out at night, the added safety measure of reflectivity.

If we could live in the Lucy Novelty Perfect Core Leggings, we would. With extra compression (thanks to the Lucy powermax fabric blend) at the lower waist for increased core support, wider side, hip and thigh compression panels for a smooth silhouette (hallelujah!!!), a higher rise that keeps every inch of you tucked in, anti-chafe flat locked seams, moisture-wicking, and a gusset inset that allows you a full range of movement and comfort.

We’re definitely putting this outfit down as our favorite workout gear, running to the supermarket gear, doing laundry gear, etc…you get the idea. Get to know the entire attractive range of athletic wear by visiting the Lucy Activewear website. We’re sure you’ll find your perfect gear whether you’re into yoga, running, training, or just enjoying the outdoors.

Kmart Welcomes the Impact by Jillian Michaels Athletic Apparel Collection

We’re actually surprised this new launch took so long to come to fruition (we were waiting for something like this at least two years ago) but we guess when you want to do something right and have the right retail partner, it takes time. It’s officially here, The Biggest Loser’s Jillian Michaels has finally launched a performance activewear collection for women. The America’s sweetheart of fitness teamed up with Kmart to bring you Impact by Jillian Michaels.

The Impact by Jillian Michaels collection will be exclusive to Kmart and boasts four fitness categories: core training, running, yoga, and lifestyle. Key features in the collection include moisture-wicking and quick-drying properties, flat-lock stitching, reflective details, enhanced comfort and breathability through fabric blends, fitted silhouettes, lightweight fabrics, and pops of color and prints.

CORE TRAINING

The core training offerings include power capris and leggings, turbo racerback tanks, athletic short and long-sleeve performance tops, and sports bra although the pieces are interchangeable and can be layered, no matter your workout regime.

RUNNING

Runners will love the stylish, high tech apparel which boasts reflective and mesh details, moisture-wicking, and flexible, smooth fabric. We love the wide elasticized waistbands on the pants and capris, the lightweight double-layer running shorts with built-in compression, and the sporty two-in-one shelf bra tank top.

YOGA

Yoga aficionados will love how the Impact by Jillian Michaels apparel moves with you while remaining secure and comfortable. The soft knits, moisture wicking, and high on style silhouettes that take you from the yoga studio to running errands and hanging out.

“I wanted to create an athletic apparel line for Kmart that not only performed well, but looked great, too,” said Jillian. “I drew inspiration from every fitness category and trend out there, so no matter who you are and what you’re doing, you will feel empowered while wearing the collection.”

The collection also offers great accessories. Carry your workout gear and everything else in style with the stylish Gym bag or yoga tote, keep your phone handy with the reflective smartphone armband, keep your head in check with the beanie or the UV protective mesh cap, and protect your hands against cold wind and rain with the touch screen friendly gloves.

Shopyourway members will receive exclusive, inspirational content from Jillian Michaels, and have the ability to purchase the collection through the retail platform. The collection is available now on Kmart.com and at select Kmart stores nationwide, with prices ranging from $10.99 to $36.99.

Breeze Comfort Introduces Innovative Collection of Sports Bras & Athletic Apparel

I believe I’ve mentioned a few times that I am gifted in the chest area, in order words I am a D Cup (well actually a D 1/2) so I have to be careful when buying tops (empire waisted tops/dresses are not my friend) and believe it or not, buying a sports bra is the worst. I am usually tragically cursed with UniBoob. Some of you ladies know what I mean – its the the smashing up of your girls in your sports bra into one big mound of flesh that generally looks like a watermelon or huge loaf of bread.

As I’m writing this, I am wearing the cure to UniBoob aka The Diva Sports Bra courtesy of Breeze Comfort Intimate Apparel. Breeze Comfort utilizes Ventipad™, a revolutionary invention in bra pad technology created for the ultimate breathability. Unlike traditional bra pads, the Ventipad™ has perforations throughout the padding, which allows the passage of air and moisture in the area around the chest. This delightful (and comfortable) Sports Bra is not the only salvation from Breeze Comfort.

Breeze Comfort announced the introduction of an innovative collection of sports bra and athletic apparel that debuted this Summer. The brand’s designers and scientists have come together to develop this high performance, fashion forward collection for today’s athletic woman. I did test it out for performance (jumping up and down, jumping jacks, etc) and I’m a very happy woman (with very happy and contained girls).

Prices for Breeze Comfort products range from $20.00 to $40.00 and are available for purchase at http://www.breezecomfort.com/products.

Athletic Wear – California Comfort

Living in New York, we’re constantly on the run and most likely in black, comfort and athletic clothing consists of jeans unless we’re running (really running not running from place to place), biking, etc then we’re in biker shorts, while in California athletic apparel is more freeing, comfortable and relaxed. I didn’t think of this until I myself starting walking and being more active to rid myself off  the winter weight.

A few athletic apparel companies that has impressed me with comfy fitness clothing include Alosport (Air Land Ocean), collection of high performance stylish lifestyle wear with outstanding function named for the elements that we live within: Air, Land and Ocean.


Divine Wear is just that – divine. A contemporary lifestyle brand with organic, ultra-luxury fabrics that are sexy and easy to wear. Divine Wear is also the inaugural brand of Pansun’s – an exciting new company with a passion for fashion that combines the business strength and experience of one of the world’s finest textile production companies with the creative energy and enthusiasm of world class fashion designers to deliver high quality apparel that’s artful, innovative and sexy.

A must have is the HoodieBuddie, an amazing invention. I love to listen to music when I’m running, the right song can give you much added boost and it’s quite annoying to get tangled up in headphone wires while running. or while doing anything actually. HoodieBuddie is available in both mens and womens and comes ina  vast amount of colors and even prints – plaids, stripes and flannel.

Using patent-pending HB3Technology™, the HoodieBuddie contains a standard headphone jack in the front pocket that plugs into any headphone-compatible device, like an mp3 player, iPod or iPhone, or other mobile device. The headphones are built in to the ends of the drawstrings believe it or not, the entire Hoodie is machine washable, yes even the headphones.
