I’m obsessed with workout clothes. Now that I’m a boot camp instructor and trainer, they’re my work clothes- which means I get to buy more, right? Ellie is known for combining fashion and fitness, providing women with trendy fitness clothing that can be purchased individually or as a monthly subscription.
Before I begin the apparel review, I have to mention their packaging. I get really excited when I get packages in the mail. So when I see a delivery truck pull up and bring out a shiny, hot pink package, it was a whole new level of excitement. How adorable is this mailer?
I’m no model. I do not look like the perfect girls in workout clothes pictures, so I get nervous buying them online. I have thick legs, a short torso, and 3 kids (which includes twins)! Actually, this picture of me in the outfit was the only one where a little head or hand wasn’t in it with me. I can assure you fit moms that the clothes by Ellie Workout Wear ARE for everyone. They are so comfortable and easy to move in. Mine are constantly in the wash so that I can wear them again as fast as possible.
The first item I tried were the Little Black Capris. These looked, well.. little, when I pulled them out of the package. However, they are very stretchy, and I fell in love when I tried them on. They are super soft, and are made from moisture-wicking, breathable fabric that feels like cotton.
Let’s just be honest- everyone wants those “lift and hug your bum” workout pants – and these are it! These have a 4-way stretch, are chafe-resistant, and have flat seams. I get so many compliments on these Little Black Capris from clients. The Little Black Capris run $44.95.
I chose to review the After Dark Tank because I fell in love with the back. I was amazed how supportive a tank with spaghetti straps as a back could be. I’ve taught classes, gone to a conditioning class and lifted weights with no “slipping”, adjusting or pulling up the top. That’s the ultimate thumbs up in my book! It has slideable straps as well as “contour seams” in the front, which help to keep the top in place while you are moving around.
The After Dark Tank is a microfiber fabric that is moisture-wicking and breathable – great for whether I am at the gym or out running. In addition to the beautiful straps on the back, it has blue sides with bright turquoise stitching on the sides which really pops (see my photo above). The After Dark Tank runs $49.95.
