Something that I have tried to do, throughout my “blogging career,” is not only empower my plus sized sisters to do things they think they can’t (like run a half marathon!) but I’ve also tried to provide shopping resources. Finding clothes can be frustrating and really hard (especially if, like me, you’re seemingly constantly between straight and plus sizes) and this has been especially true of finding quality workout gear.
A few weeks ago, Sweat Pink Ambassadors were offered the chance to review Taffy Activewear, a functional activewear line for ladies with curves. I was torn on whether to pick the Essential Jacket or the Essential Capri. I went with the capris, and I’m so glad I did.
Honestly – I was worried when I ordered the 1X that it would be too big for me, but the size chart says it equates to a 12/14, so I went with it. When they arrived, they got packed into my gym bag without me even trying them on before BodySTEP, which I expected to be a fatal error. I spend so many classes hiking up my drawers because it seems like if something fits me in the waist, it doesn’t fit me anywhere else, and I’m in a constant state of being uncomfortable. My hips are really the biggest problem on my body as they are disproportionate to the rest of me, which makes it hard to dress.
I was shocked and happy when the Taffy Activewear capris fit me perfectly, and didn’t seem to move throughout my whole workout! They have room for my hips and booty while still being able to sit up on my waist. I also really like the red detail. I usually go for plain black (because I’m obsessive about my outfits matching), but I thought I’d go outside the box a little this time and opt for some color.
In addition to providing me a pair to review, they’ve also offered to do a giveaway of the Essential Capri to a reader! Enter the Rafflecopter below. Sorry, this is open to US residents only!
