NUBE - Sustainable Activewear Review

The Athleisurely Review

Los Angeles, California

I AM SO EXCTIED about this weeks legging review! I am seriously obsessed with this company and the leggings they are making. Definitely my new go-to’s!

WHAT NUBE IS DOING TO HELP THE PLANET: They make their own fabric using recycled plastic! How cool is that. They are super transparent about their entire process which is so fun to see exactly how the recycled plastic bottles are turned into leggings here in LA. You can see the entire process HERE.

FABRIC: I can’t get over how thick and luxurious this fabric feels!

FIT / SIZING: I tried a small and a medium because I am usually in-between sizes and I am a small in these. Normally when leggings have a compression factor, I like to size up so I don’t feel suffocated, but the small fit great.

BOOTY FACTOR: Great compression that lifts and holds everything together. L.O.V.E. They are also not see through at all!!!

WHERE TO WEAR: I wore these to a super sweaty Plate Fit class and they held up amazingly. No slipping or sliding at all. The sports bra is made for low impact activities, so I would wear it to a class with no jumping like any barre class.

P.S. I also have these leggings in the Sound Blue color and am in love. Their rose color is SO pretty too.

AARY ATHLETICA - Draw The Line Tights | Sustainable Activewear Review

The Athleisurely Review

Carmel-by-the-sea, California

Hi guys! I had a crazy busy past two weeks, but The Athleisurely Earth Month is back!!! Today I’m featuring this super cute set from Aary Athletica.

WHAT AARY IS DOING TO HELP THE PLANET: Aary uses eco-friendly packaging that is made from plants and their labeling is made from sugar cane bagasse. They take part in the DHL Go Green Solutions initiative, and plant a tree for every item purchased!!! (They also have an eco-friendly fabric coming out soon that we are SO excited for.)

FABRIC: The fabric has a high quality feel that I love. They do warn that the detailing is printed onto white fabric, so when it stretches out can appear to be a little faded. I chose to size up to a medium because of this, and haven’t noticed a problem with that at all. They also have a little mesh detail on the bottom that looks super cute and doesn’t itch like a lot of mesh fabrics can do.

FIT / SIZING: I love their thick waist bands that hold everything in! Length is my favorite, 7/8. See above for more on how I sized.

BOOTY FACTOR: Medium compression that is the perfect amount of support that doesn’t feel too tight. :)

WHERE TO WEAR: I’ve been on a Barry’s Bootcamp kick lately and these definitely keep up with the high intensity workout!

P.S. I sized up to a medium for both the sports bra and the leggings, but would love to try the bra in a size small because it did feel like it had a little extra fabric in the front.

Will Lane - Jennifer Legging

The Athleisurely Review

Manhattan Beach, California

Happy Thursday! I’m a day late for today’s review so lets keep it short and sweet!

This week’s brand is Will Lane Athletics. I love their minimalistic style and the nude tone of these leggings. P.S. - these leggings are under $100!

FABRIC: Their fabric is light, airy and breathable. I love the mesh that they use. I’ve come across some mesh fabrics that can feel too tight and itchy to the skin, almost plasticky. Will Lane’s mesh is not like that at all, you can barely even tell there’s a difference between the legging fabric and the mesh portion. It adds just the right amount of breathability.

FIT / SIZING: I got a small and they fit perfect. They’re not too tight and they don’t dig in or give you a muffin top. You could wear these all day and they wouldn’t get itchy or uncomfortable.

BOOTY FACTOR: Since the fabric is on the thinner side, they don’t have a sculpting factor. On this particular pair, the backside is nude colored fabric that is see through so make sure to wear the right undies!

WHERE TO WEAR: Somewhere sweatyyyy. Hot 8 yoga or spin. These do great when the heat is turned up.

p.s. The bra I’m wearing is called the Kali Sports Bra. I love the detailing in the back and how bold the front is. I love wearing this to events as a stand out piece. I also own the Marcella Sports Bra and it is my go-to cozy lazy Sunday bra.

Nux Active - London Legging

Hood River, Oregon

Leggings - Nux Active, Sweatshirt - Beyond Yoga, Bomber - Charlotte Russe

It's finally fall at The Athleisurely Life! I was introduced to Nux for the first time last winter and it was love at first sight. Finding companies that I'm instantly in love with and inspire me are what keep me going.

FABRIC: The fabric is nothing like I've worn before, it is breathable and thick at the same time, with different textures throughout. They also have a compression factor that I love, hugging your thighs in just the right spot, which keeps any unnecessary jiggling at bay. ;D Last but not least, they are completely not see through. WOO HOO it's your favorite pair of granny panties time to shine. 

BOOTY FACTOR: The Body Engineered jacquard design of the London Legging contours your legs and booty to make them look great at any angle. 

FIT / SIZING: The London Leggings are ankle length, which I'm totally into right now. They might feel a bit more snug than what you're used to because of the compression factor, but now that I know that's how they are supposed to fit, I love it. Their seamless design makes sure to not cut in, and they also have a comfort gusset that works wonders. You can move all you want in these babies.

WHERE TO WEAR: Perfect for any activity, but since they are a bit thicker I like to wear these on cooler fall days to yoga or barre.

See you next Wednesday!
