Workout wear with Simply Beach – Review
My gym wear has become a little stagnant over the past year or so. For the amount of time I spend there I really felt like I needed to step it up a gear. The workout wear we have around today is some of the best – with so many fitness brands out it’s hard to find the best quality pieces without buying tonnes to try out. Today I’m going to have a good old chat to you about Simply Beach. Now, you may be wondering ‘ermm Imogen you’re talking about gym wear not beach wear?’ Yes, Simply Beach have an awesome workout wear section! They feature tonnes of designer brands so you know you are getting high quality pieces.
MY FITNESS JOURNEY
So you may know I’ve been well into fitness over the years. I tend to go full in and then go through little phases of falling out of love with the gym, they don’t tend to last long but I always come back to it. This next week I’m starting something very exciting. There’s an incredible PT on instagram who approached me about trying out her fitness and nutrition plan. When it comes to the gym and taking it seriously it’s always good to have a plan in place in order to achieve your goals. So, I’m giving it a go! Look out over on my instagram for the before and after results to come over the upcoming weeks! I’m excited to see how my strength builds that’s for sure!
I chose these Seafolly gym leggings and the matching long sleeved top. It’s in this super soft lycra material which makes them hug your body. The leggings come up just above the ankle on me and I’m 5’2, I think this also maybe because I like to pull my leggings pretty high waisted but they do come as cropped. The only issue I had with the leggings were that the inside of the lining is pink which is ok if you have pale white skin but I’m not sure these type of leggings would suit WOC 🙁 Assuming you want to go for the look that the holes are see through. I personally would have loved them to have a pattern of holes with no lining underneath. The overall quality of the leggings are extremely nice, I tested how squat proof they are too and they’re 10/10! The top is a nice fit, I like that it’s long in length rather than cropped. For me, it’s a nice change because a lot of the gym wear you get now tend to be quite cropped and the crop length isn’t for everyone. I’m wearing a small in the top and a medium in the bottoms. Just for reference I’m normally 8-10 on top and a 12 on bottom.
Let’s discuss the packaging for a minute. Simply Beach did not disappoint, you know when you receive an item in the post and it just has that extra special, luxury touch to it? Well, Simply Beach have done exactly that with the packaging! Super sleek and pretty. It came in a black box and the items were individually wrapped in tissue paper. Perfect for a gift!
At the moment Simply beach have got a massive sale on and the set I’m wearing is on sale eek!
