When I first started running, I would wear old tee-shirts and some running tights. I knew there were better options for tops for running, but I didn’t really want to spend the money. So when Albion Fit contacted me to try out some of their fitness clothes, it seemed like the perfect time. I had a fun time picking out my outfit since pretty much everything on their site is really cute.
I did not have as much fun taking pictures of myself wearing these. Blech. Just pretend my smile isn’t completely forced.
I ended up getting the Illusion Capris and the Seafoam Love Racer Tank. In all honesty, I prefer loose tops when I run. Having had three babies, my mid-section is not so slender that I’m super confident wearing a tight tank. That being said, if I’m going to wear a tank top, there are certain qualities that it MUST have:
1) It must not creep up when I’m running. Thinner tank tops tend to sneak themselves up until my belly starts peeking out. No–not cool. It has to stay put.
2) It should have a built-in sports bra. To wear a sports bra as well as a form fitting tank is a lot of tightness going on and I’d rather not have that.
3) It should be thick and tight enough to keep my body in place and keep me feeling contained and secure.
This Love Racer has all those qualities and believe me, when going on a 4 mile run, it didn’t shift at all. Same goes for the capris I got with the added bonus of having a little waistband that can fold up to keep the little baby belly in place.
I have to say, I can’t believe it took me so long to realize how fun fitness fashion can be! Now I have lots of fun outfits to work out in. And believe me, it is so nice to be able to get high quality workout clothes.
