I wanted to give a shout out to a few items I’ve recently purchased that I’ve been loving at the gym, with a focus on function, not streetwear. There have been some great finds for me despite the generally drab and plain lululemon lineup and overabundance of mesh in all the run tights.
Speed Wunder Tight Deep Sea Print
I got these Deep Sea Print Speed Wunder last week when they restocked a few sizes on the website. I had ordered them in the summer but then returned them out of fear of the crazy print but I really regretted it and had been stocking eBay for them when the website restock happened. I love this new version of printed Full-On Luxtreme which is 69% nylon and 31% elastane. This is a huge improvement over the primary polyester based printed luxtreme. The prints are now matte and the material is much lighter and more breathable. They feel so nice on, and they don’t trap heat like printed luxtreme used to. I never wear full length tights to the gym because I get so overheated, but these where fantastic. I wish I’d tried on the black version of these tights as well. I wonder if the none printed Full-On Luxtreme is this same matte nylon based material.
Sorry for the blurry pictures here but I grabbed snapshots from my gyms instragram stories, and quick snaps I took on my way out. I first got the Muted Mauve Essentials Tank mostly because I loved the color so much but I really love the way this tank fits. It’s so flowy without being matronly and the back pleat detail is really pretty. I love that the entire back covers my bra straps (I hate having to coordinate so many outfit components!). One negative thing about it is these lighter colors do show a darker bra or print thru the fabric, but I am not bothered by that. I love both the Tonic Sea and the Muted Mauve and they’ve been on regular rotation for the past 3 weeks. I may even like them better than my 105F singlets because they are more modestly cut and cover the armpits area a bit better and it has a wider racerback.
I am not a huge Define Jacket person but I had to have this color. When I received it I new I’d be keeping it because the luon happens to be very soft in this color, and because it’s so streamlined with the lack of contrasting colors, textures or contrasted zippers. It’s so soft that I can easily wear this for warmup or runs at the gym. This is my to/from jacket to the gym and as it gets colder I’ll start layering a jacket or puffer vest over it.
