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.

Happy Valentine's Day everybody! I know, this is a few days late but, it was intended to be a V-Day post! My actual Valentine's Day went by SO quick I completely forgot to publish this. I hope you all still love it just as much as you would if it were actually posted on the 14th! And I hope everyone had a special love-filled day. xoxo

Without further ado, I'm so excited because I finallyyyy got to try out Ivy Park leggings! The hope was turning into Beyonce when putting these on.

FABRIC: I was expecting this fabric to be a lot thicker than it really was. It feels very silky and thin. Perfect for sweaty Soul Cycle classes, but the issue I found with this thin fabric is, there is a zipper pocket on the back of this pair, and the whole pocket lining looked bulky through the fabric. 

BOOTY FACTOR: Not see through, but you definitely could not get away with wearing granny panties because the fabric is so thin. As for a sculpting factor, the actual legging fabric didn't do much, but the waist band was nice and thick, and placed in just the right spot to help a little.

FIT / SIZING: Great fit. I usually wear a size small, and their small fit perfect! 

WHERE TO WEAR: SOUL CYCLE FOR SURE. These are super thin and breathable, perfect for heated sweaty cardio sessions!
