My Favourite Sportswear Brands

I’m an activewear addict and have been wearing and developing an opinion on all the different brands for years. From sports bras to trainers this post will give you my insight into the best high-end and low-end activewear ranges on offer and my key pieces I’m loving for the coming spring/summer season.

Adidas 

Probably my favourite and most trusted brand of sportswear available. With tops starting at £15 and bottoms at £20, there is something for everyone. The ‘Climachill’ range is my particular favourite, as aluminium dots within the fabric direct heat away from the body, keeping you cool while training. The material is comfortable and lightweight and these tops are the only tops I wear!

Adidas by Stella McCartney is another range that adidas offer that I love, due to the style. This is more of an ‘Athleisure’ range for me, allowing me to look more human when I come out of the gym – if that’s possible! Although the quality of the clothing is still brilliant for training.

There are a few pieces that are on my wish-list from Adidas at the moment, the blue and the reds are nice and colourful for spring and I love to wear loud colours to the gym – why not? The adidas sports bras are always so comfortable and supportive and this lovely khaki  colour took my fancy!

NMD R1 solar red £109                       CMMTTD X bra £44.95

Sweaty Betty

What can I say about Sweaty Betty? This amazing brand has never let me down and I love every single item I own from them. The leggings are my favourite and I honestly don’t wear leggings from any other brand. They hug your body and shape your legs. I don’t know how it’s done, but they make you look amazing, especially the Zero Gravity range! The quality and fit of every item is always perfection and they even do XXS leggings, which is amazing for someone like me, who has always struggled to get tight fitting leggings. The only downside is the price, but you are paying for the amazing quality and investing in some Sweaty Betty staples that you love, may help you feel that bit more confident in the gym. What I’m lusting after:

Hamsa Fashion Sweat £90                    Urdhva Reversible Yoga Leggings £85

Upbeat Padded Workout Bra £45         Mukha Yoga Cami £60

The lovely sweat is perfect for putting over an outfit if you have plans after the gym and I absolutely love the bright yellow sports bra. The asymmetric cami is unique from other plain cami tops and adds some interest to an outfit.

H&M

Fabulous for a high street retailer. I love how more and more clothing brands are venturing into the activewear department and H&M’s is particularly good. The prices are super affordable and the pieces are amazing quality and have a unique range of styles. I love:

Fleece jacket with hood £24.99        Seamless sports top £19.9              hmprod hmprod

Sports tights £29.99                            Running tights £24.99

The colour block leggings are a cheaper dupe for ones from a much higher end brand, they look almost identical! I love the fleece jackets for running and the lining keeps you nice and warm.

Lucas Hugh

A super lux sportswear brand that offers unique styles and ‘integrates body responsive performance with a high-fashion look’. The high quality fabrics and unique patterns on Lucas Hugh pieces make any gym outfit look incredible. The designs work with the natural curves of the body ensuring a very flattering fit. They also do jumpsuits that I think are brilliant for yoga or worn under a baggy tee for after gym appointments! My wish-list includes:

ll205bfront t110w_front

Blackstar leggings £240                       Lucas Hugh tank £85

astrofront op0202mfront

Astro T-shirt £140                                   Aurora one piece £210

As sheer is ‘in’ at the moment, why not carry this trend off in the gym? I love the statement tank for yoga or light bodyweight training! All so expensive but all so beautiful.

I hope this helps some of you that might want to invest in some new gym kit or who are maybe wanting to get started with training but not sure what to buy!
