I love exercise clothes and frankly, I own a lot of them; BUT, you can never have enough ;). When I was offered the opportunity to try some clothing from prAna, I was over the moon.
I have always been curious to try their clothes. As the daughter of a naturalist, I do my best to buy environmentally friendly products. Not only does prAna use recycled and responsibly sourced materials, they treat their employees well. They are constantly evolving and working to protect the environment while providing an amazing product.
I decided to go all in when trying their clothes. Of course, I wanted something I could wear for yoga, running and power classes. It also seemed like a good opportunity to try something new.
Speaking of new….I’m working on my headstand
Leggings were pretty far out of my comfort zone, but as the last person to the leggings party – I gave them a try. I love them!! I was nervous about unflattering lines and maybe a little cellulite showing its face. Not with the prism leggings! They were snug enough to keep everything in place while being easy to move in. The seams are perfect, creating a flattering silhouette! I am very picky about my bottoms and plan on buying more of these leggings
I’ve worn the leggings for all styles of fitness as well as running errands and getting the kids where they need to be. I didn’t run outside in them as capri season has passed here, but I’m looking forward to trying them in the spring.
For a top, I selected the Phoebe top. This fell right in my comfort zone – only so many risks at once ;). I wish you could feel the material through the screen, it is so soft and amazing! The design couldn’t be more flattering and all of the colors are beautiful.
I’ve been asked a lot about sizing from my students. In my opinion they run true to size. I’m always nervous about buying fitness clothes. It seems more often than not, I have to go up a size. This was not true with prAna. I looked closely at the sizing guide and double checked my hip width. The guide was spot on.
I love finding good, responsible companies that provide durable, stylish clothes that I can wear to work (exercise in) and run errands, grab lunch or whatever in the same clothes. I am definitely planning on adding more of their clothes from the early winter collection (hint, hint for those looking for gift ideas ;))
