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.

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!

Röhnisch Legging Review

The Athleisurely Review

Santa Monica, California

Guys I’ve been looking for a new go-to black legging for awhileeee and I’ve finally found one. My closet is officially stuffed to the brim with leggings. So much so that I just got a second dresser to accommodate everything. With so many options out there these days I actually rarely review or wear black leggings. But as I was organizing my new dresser full of leggings I realized that SO many of them were basic black leggings, I just never wear any of them because none of them are making the wear all day cut. They are too tight, the fabric isn’t breathable, they fall down, the list can go on for awhile. When I realized this I decided I needed to find some all star new black leggings to get into my daily rotation!

Cue: Röhnisch. They are a Swedish golf & activewear brand made for women, by women. This amazing company is doing many things to be a sustainable company, something I have been looking out for more and more lately. They also support a charity in India that helps underprivileged women get education and their healthcare needs met. Overall I am amazed by this company and everything they are doing and am very proud to bring you today’s Legging Review.

FABRIC: The particular pair that I choose is called the Shiny Tights. I love that they are basic black tights but with just enough shine to be something special, without being over the top. The fabric is comfortable and breathable. Stats: 85% Polyamid, 15% Elastan

FIT / SIZING: Perfect fit. Seriously. Love the high waist and they even have a secret draw string that I didn’t even notice was there at first, in case you need a tighter waist band. They are also my favorite 7/8 length. They don’t bunch up on my short legs and aren’t capris so I still feel covered.

BOOTY FACTOR: Not see through! They also have a slight amount of compression, but just enough to feel confident in them and still be able to wear them through the whole day.

WHERE TO WEAR: SOUL CYCLE. Get sweaty in these! They fit so great and since they can be adjusted to your specific body take advantage and wear these to your most high intensity workouts and you won’t have to be dealing with any legging issues so you can focus on your workout. :D

BEACH RIOT SPORT - Metallic Heart Dotty Legging

The Athleisurely Review

Venice Beach, California

GUYS. This. Freaking. Set.

I was seeing these cute leggings and twist tie top allllll over Instagram and I had to get my hands on my own pair. I posted my first Youtube video wearing these leggings and you guys went crazy for them! So here is the full review.

This brand is from Beach Riot, a super cute swimwear company that launched their Sport Riot line in 2017 and it is to die for.

FABRIC: A polyester/lycra blend that feels thin and breathable but can still withhold some sweaty sessions. I chose this particular pair because I love the v-cut waist line, it is so flattering. The heart detailing is made from metal hearts, and one little heart on mine got snagged and bent up but I was able to bend the metal back into place, so just be cautious of that!

FIT / SIZING: I normally wear a small, but was feeling suffocated in the small so I went up to a size medium and they fit great. The top I am wearing is a size small and I have heard to size down if you’re in between sizes because it can run a little large.

BOOTY FACTOR: No sculpting from this fabric and they do not pass the down dog see through test.

WHERE TO WEAR: The leggings I would wear to any class, but this outfit as a whole I would wear to any low intensity workout that doesn’t include jumping. Barre would be perfect, my favorite is The Dailey Method. :)

p.s. I noticed while going through these photos that I completely forgot to take photos of the back! I couldn’t find any online either but wanted to note that the back is solid pink with no little hearts.
