Ok, it’s confession time: I’m a workout video junkie.
I’m the girl who stays up late at night watching infomercials and actually orders the stuff shown on tv. On top of that, I probably own enough workout equipment to start my own small fitness studio. Because my workouts for the past year or two have been done exclusively in the comfort of my living room, my exercise apparel was beginning to look a little pitiful.
In any case, I recently decided to join a gym to switch things up a bit. And of course, I immediately realized that my usual workout attire of Hanes Boy Shorts and ratty college t-shirts weren’t made for public consumption. And so the quest began for cute, affordable workout gear. Much to my surprise, Forever 21 delivered full-force on stylish and functional designs.
As a woman with an ample bustline, I was particularly stoked to find cute sports bras that held ‘the gals’ in place. Now, I probably wouldn’t wear them for high-impact aerobics, but for things like yoga, weight-lifting, and spin class where’s there’s not much jumping around, their sports bras do the trick just fine. But what got me most excited were the cute warmup jackets and printed leggings.
As far as sizing goes, I find the large tops and bottoms work best on me. But if you’re larger than a C-cup, like me, then I recommend checking out the plus size range of sports bras for a better fit.
Have any of you ever tried Forever 21’s activewear? If so, what were your thoughts? And if not, what brands do you stick by?
Heads up: I did not receive monetary compensation for this post, but the leggings, sports bra and yoga mat were gifted to me by Forever 21. The jacket was purchased by me months ago with my own cash, along with many other pieces from Forever 21’s activewear collection. I’d never lead you guys astray and truly do love these items enough to pay for them out of my own pocket!
