My Style: Zumba Apparel (Pt. 1)


Today, I'm very excited to share a collaboration that I've been working on for a few weeks! Throughout 2014 I'm going to be participating in the Zumba apparel bloggers program, reviewing the latest trends and work-out gear from Zumba apparel! Seeing as I regularly attend a Zumba class every week, this seemed like a perfect fit. After reading the email I immediately knew I wanted to work with this amazing company. Sure, it's a little out of my comfort zone and certainly not what you're used to seeing around here, but it's going to be fun and different. My plan is to style the items not just for my Zumba class but also other opportunities for being active - including just walking Millie! I truly hope you enjoy this series!









My first package for the program included the So Bootyful Long Legging, Gotta Jam Sleeveless Hoodie, and the Back Me Up Reversible Bra Top. I was a little intimidated trying to decide on sizing but ended up going with my traditional sizes for these pieces. I was thrilled that each item fit comfortably and was super flattering. Here's my review for each piece:

Leggings:
For me, the leggings were just a little long, but fit perfectly everywhere else. They're tight but you can move (ahem, dance!) comfortably in them. I don't have to constantly pull and tug at them - huge plus! The fold-over waistband is a great feature (very flattering) and to put it bluntly, makes your butt look really good.

Hoodie:
The hoodie was something I wouldn't normally pick out on my own, but I was so glad they included it in my first mailing. It's a fun addition over a tee shirt or sports bra and adds a little attitude to my usual work-out clothes. It's light weight enough that it doesn't get in the way while you work out.

Bra Top:
Best athletic bra ever! It's very fitted (at least on me) and gives amazing support for working out. The material is incredibly breathable - made with Z-Dri technology. And I love that it's reversible!

Whoa, I hardly recognized you with your hair up! You look great!

I took Zumba once and felt like the whitest girl e-v-e-r...but those leggings would be really good for just hanging out, I bet!

How fun! Laurie is a HUGE zumba fan -- in fact, it's helped her lose more than 30 lbs over the last year! Such cute clothes for a great workout.
