I know I’ve done a post about the Align capris, but now that I’ve been wearing lululemon’s Align capris and pants for a while now, I feel I can really give a good review.
I. Love. These. So. Freaking. Much.
Not only are they comfortable, but the feel of this Nulu fabric is ridiculous. They describe it as buttery soft, and they are not lying. It is SO soft. What surprises me the most is even with the buttery softness, these really do wick away sweat. I like to wear these under sweaters with boots, too…so they are not just my workout gear.
I tend to like high waisted pants, and as you can see in the picture, these come up just enough. The tall waist has a pocket too in the front to hold any locker keys while you are at the gym.
When you pick these up, you may think they are really thin. That’s the beauty of them though. They are not a heavy pant, BUT they still hide any trouble areas. They slim you out without being tight and uncomfortable.
You seriously have to try on these pants – and buy them. If you wear workout gear as much as I do, they are completely worth the money. (And I’ve washed these a hundred times and they still look brand new.)
I love good workout gear. I typically workout at least three days during the week and both weekend days, so workout gear that lasts is important to me. I used to say that I would never buy lululemon because…well basically…everyone else was. But I caved two years ago. And I caved hard. Now that there is a store five miles from my house, I’ve found myself shopping there almost 75% of the time for my workout gear.
These Align pants are my new favorites. I was hesitant to try them because on the tag it says “if you want to feel…naked.” Uh, I really want to feel like I have clothes on while I’m working out – I don’t know about you 🙂 But the salesperson said they are ridiculously comfortable. They were right. They are high waisted, which I LOVE. They hide your trouble areas, but the fabric isn’t thick. It does an incredible job of wicking away sweat. There is a hidden key pocket. And then, they don’t move while you are working out…no falling down while I’m running or doing Zumba. I’ll confess I own two pairs now…and the leggings for when fall comes.
I’m always on the lookout for good and supportive sports bras. I love this Beat the Heat Tank. Not only is the design great, but it conceals the girls and doesn’t show too much. It’s comfortable and is not too restricting, even with the good support. Highly recommend.
I won’t forget to mention my trusty weighted ball either. Love this thing! While I’m catching up on my TV smut (a.k.a. Real Housewives), I’ll stand and do squats, lunges, tricep extensions, all with the ball. It even has suggested workouts drawn on the ball! Helps me from not being lazy while watching TV.
