3 ATHLEIUSURE BOTTOMS YOU CAN AND WORK OUT IN THE ENTIRE QUARANTINE

Everyone is in pajamas these days. And no one is washing clothes or doing laundry. A lot of us are relying on the same cycle of a few comfy leisure wear, old tees, comfy sweats or yoga pants.

I’m finding myself in and out of my fave workout pants. You know, the ones with the extra firm support that still feels snug and  cozy, and… you can go to sleep in if you want, then wake up and go for a quick run in!

Do you have a pair of pants like that? The brand and style I have is no longer on sale or in stock but I found three alternatives for you to consider investing in today. They’re mid range in price but worth it because they can stand the test of time of repeated wash and wear.

Alo Yoga

Alo Yoga  makes a pretty good pair of high waisted leggings they call the Moto Legging. They are stylish looking and comfy. BUY YOURS HERE!

BEYOND YOGA

Beyond Yoga Cozy Long Fleece Foldover Jogging Pant: If you want a jogger that is less baggy and comes in a slim fit style, then the Beyond Yoga jogger pant is for you. It’s made of breathable fleece and comes to the ankle. They are so comfortable and plush, you won’t want to take them off. You can wear the waist band up or down. They are super soft and they have front pockets!!!! Even though they are a slim fit, they are still relaxed and supple enough to not make you feel stuffed in them. BUY YOURS HERE!

TORY SPORT

 

Tory Sport Women’s Chevron Full Length Leggings are made of neoprene and are very comfortable to wear and they are breathable and made with wicking and COOLMAX tech that keeps you cool to when you work out.

Serena Williams Returns to Tennis, Launches Self-Named Athleisure Line

Serena Williams returned to world championship tennis 8-months after giving birth to her first child, now 8-months old Alexis Olympia Ohanian, and suited up for the occasion in a black body suit that has been called a Wakanda Black Panther-inspired and Super Hero catsuit.

“Catsuit anyone? For all the moms out there who have a tough recovery from pregnancy – here you go,” the 23-time Grand Slam Tennis Champ captioned an Instagram post of herself styling and profiling in the suit about to give up a fierce serve. “If I can do it, so can you. Love you all!!”

Page Six hypothesized that the outfit selection was timed with the release of Williams’ self-named 13-piece Athleisure wear collection, her first independent line.

“Introducing Serena, my first independent clothing line for all the ladies out there being awesome,” the 36-year old, 5’9″ phenom states in the ‘about us’ section of the line’s webpage. “My designs are inspired by strong, sexy, sophisticated, sassy, sure, smart, stylish, silly, and spontaneous women who are living their best lives, or making it up as they go—kinda like me.”

She joins our other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums who have their own athletic wear lines including Beyonce who has Ivy Park…

Kate Hudson who reps Fabletics  and Carrie Underwood who has Calia Studios.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Line

Williams already endorses and is the product ambassador and spokespersons for other clothing brands and lends her names to some collaboration, like these below:

However, Serena, is her first independent line.

Editor’s Note: Personally, I am feeling them because I live in sweats and love to rock mock t-neck crop tops. So me! So the mom on the run, who manages several projects at the same time while trying to keep her household in order and still feel feminine and sexy because she may be a wife also.

The new mom won’t stop. She is also featured in the upcoming July issue of Harper’s Bazaar! Can’t wait to read it! Congrats on the new line!

From Ivy Park to FableticsWe Picked Our Fave Celeb Athletic Brand Pieces for You

celeb athletic

Beyonce is the latest celeb to launch into the athletic clothing brand with her Ivy Park named for her daughter Blue Ivy.

Bey has said the the 228-piece collection aims to promote a powerful message of self-assurance, confidence, inclusivity and diversity, the cornerstones for a generation reared on mindfulness – and it is democratic and accessible.

According to reports, Beyoncé found it depressing that up to 80 per cent of girls give up sport at the age of 13, thus why the line caters to young girls and has a slouchy and comfy aesthetic but with style. The brand was launched in collaboration and partnership with TopShop.

Within hours of the release in April, the brand sold out.

 

The collection ranges in price from $15 to $265, according to the Topshop website. Here are our fave pieces.

Actress Kate Hudson is a co-founder of Fabletics, which launched in October 2013.

The line is sold online exclusively. Shoppers can purchase individual items or join a VIP membership for lower pricing and outfit recommendations. Hudson has said of the line that she hopes that Fabletics will inspire women to embrace a healthy lifestyle. “That was a huge goal for us, to inspire women to empower themselves by getting active and taking care of their gorgeous selves, not as a fad or a quick fix, but as a way of living that promotes health, community, determination, passion and joy,” she said.

CALIA’s collection includes mid-range priced capris and pants, tops and bras as well as accessories such as tote bags, headbands and water bottles. Functionality and design were key; some pockets in CALIA gear were optimized to fit smart phones.
