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.

Yummy + Trendy - Mindful Legging Review | Sustainable Activewear

The Athleisurely Review

Estancia Hotel | La Jolla, California

Hi guys and welcome to the first Athleisurely Earth Month Legging Review! Phew that’s a long name! 😬 For the month of April, in honor of Earth Day being in April, every Legging Review posted this month will be featuring a brand that is making a difference for the planet.

Today’s set is the Mindful Legging from Yummy + Trendy. This top and leggings were made from recycled water bottles! Yay!

FABRIC: Made from recycled water bottles! The fabric is light, stretchy and cool to the touch.

FIT / SIZING: I am wearing a size medium. The fabric itself is very stretchy, but the stitching isn’t. It is a high waist legging but not super high waist, more of an in between height. The ankles were also a little loose which is super rare, I usually find that ankles on leggings are very tight! The length hits at my favorite 7/8 length.

BOOTY FACTOR: They are see through so be sure to wear nude undies! No compression.

WHERE TO WEAR: I have been on a Core Power kick lately and these are perfect for staying cool in sweaty sessions. Core Power isn’t as sweaty as some hot yoga classes I’ve been too so I’m not sure how this color of fabric holds up in the sweatiest times, but I will update you once I test it out!
