I recently bought some new exercise leggings. I squealed when I received a beautifully wrapped box in the post. I felt like a kid on Christmas Day opening it. Inside was an electric blue, waved, tissue paper sealed with a lovely sticker, wrapped around my wonderful, new leggings!
As a yoga instructor and lover of all things fitness, exercise clothes take up a massive part of my wardrobe. What do I look for?
I’ve tried and tested them all from Pennys/Primarks finest to high end famous brands. I’ve learned one thing – Cheap ones fade, become baggy and worst of all get see through! No one wants to squat in those! It’s one thing if you are down the back of a studio in your local gym but a whole different story if you’re up the front being the teacher and people are staring at your crotch for the majority of the class!
I was delighted with my Jamica print leggings from Elle Belle Fit. This company was founded by Kate, an Irish girl from West Cork, who moved to Australia 4 years ago and developed a passion for all things health and fitness. She has always loved fashion and fell in love with the beautiful fitness brands in Australia. She made it her mission to bring these beautiful designers to the very fashionable ladies of Europe as she firmly believes you can look great when you work out and quality is QUEEN! All the brands on ElleBelle Fit are handpicked by her for their beautiful designs and amazing technical performance. You can follow her on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and drool over the stunning styles and range of fitness clothing.
You can buy a pair of these leggings yourself here for the great value price of €60. People often comment that this is expensive but when you think about it if you are anyway into fitness you will wear these at least twice a week and so to me that is a bargain! The online shop is also packed full of other wonderful leggings, shorts, tops, sports bras, jackets and much, much more. Check it out here.
The only negative I can think of is as they are so lightweight and breathable they may become see-through eventually. As I’ve said I’ve washed them numerous times and still no fade or sign of going that way so I’ll just have to wait and see. I’ll keep doing the squat check in front of my husband and report back if they do!
From the professional service, lovely packaging, value for money, wonderful designs and comfort and durability I can highly recommend not only these Jamaica leggings but also Elle Belle Fit and all their staff.
