City Chic Activewear (CCX) has just recently launched (and is available both in store and online) and can I tell you, it’s fucking fabulous!
You should all be aware of my issues with trying to find suitable activewear that not only suited and protected my body type – the girls need a lot of support – but also stuff that makes you feel good when you work out.
I’ve made it pretty clear, that gyms aren’t for me. After years of trying to be “that person” I made the decision end of last year to stop forcing something that didn’t come naturally to me or that I didn’t enjoy. So even though I’m not a gym person I still keep active by walking or doing my 7 seven minute workout and yeah, i’ll be honest I want to look as good as the next woman.
City Chic Activewear has a great range depending on your body shape and confidence levels. Tanks, Hoodies, Jackets, Sports Bras and short and long leggings. I opted for the 3/4 leggings – and discovered that these actually give you the illusion of longer legs, which for a shorty like me is AWESOME! The fabric and style is quite slimming – I went for an XS in the leggings and they were a little baggy in some areas and quite high waisted. With my recent weight loss, I’m still finding my feet with new sizing. The leggings have a built in secret zip pocket in the back – perfect for keys, coins or your IPod. I find that spending so much time on my phone for work, sometimes I need a break and this way I can still listen to my music without the interruptions or temptation of text message, calls or social media. There is nothing more relaxing or refreshing than getting some fresh air, tuning out and listening to your favourite beats.
As I mentioned earlier, looking after the girls is paramount when I’m exercising or those things bounce around with the possibility of a black eye lol. I jest, but it’s often painful if they’re not secured properly. I was a little skeptical when I first tried the sports bra on, however with lightly padded straps and a firm underwire this sports bra is incredibly comfortable and supportive.
#BE BOLD Always a fan of the slogan tees and mesh is on trend not to mention automatic air circulation for cooling. This is one activewear piece that I can wear with denim cutoffs or black skinnies. Damn I love versatility in clothing.
All in all, super impressed and I have to be honest i’ve worn this little set up a bit since receiving it because you know “doing everything in your activewear” is all the rage hehe.
Next on the list is the Longline Hoodie singlet and Mesh Hoodie xx
