Comfortable workout wear is usually something I take for granted, but now that I’m in the thick of marathon training and logging lots of mileage, it’s a non-negotiable.
That’s why when Moving Comfort contacted me to test out some of the pieces from their new fall collection, I jumped at the chance.
I’ve been a longtime fan of the brand for its fit and quality, but it wasn’t one of the first I’d consider for fashion-forward tops and bottoms…until now.
Case in point: The new Foxie tank ($56), which is made to layer over a racer-back sports bra (especially if you’re looking for more support).
It’s got a mesh panel at the upper back for added breathability, plus an envelope pocket at the lower back with a handy media port so you can stash your tunes and run hands-free.
But the real test was when I wore it to a boot camp and had friends come up with compliments and to ask what I was wearing. That’s how you know it’s a great top; when other people see it and want one of their own!
But my absolute favorite piece, hands down, is the new Urban Gym Capri ($60), which is made of this amazing fabric that’s so soft and feels good against your skin (i.e. no chafing!).
The best part, though, is that these capris feature Moving Comfort’s signature PowerFit waistband, which slims and stays put.
Translation: This is some seriously flattering compression support that helps flatten the tummy and prevent any type of muffin-top situation from happening.
The verdict? I didn’t just take these pieces for a spin; I really put them through the paces – from tempo runs and boot camp class to track practice and long training runs – and can vouch that this is some seriously workout-worthy gear!
