Another fun run was tackled last night & 2 guys were chicked in the process: success ;)
Kris is in for the smoothies
Of course I'd received a new outfit from Brooks and had to don it immediately too!
When a girl gets the opportunity to try out one of her favorite brands' other pieces of apparel, she can go a bit shop-happy.
I have shared Brooks haul photos BUT I haven't reviewed my favorite pieces,
shame on me!
Here's a small sample of my favorite Brooks finds -
I'll call these "The Essentials" (aside from shoes)
UL: Versatile Low Rise Short, UR: Glycerin short, Bottom: Infiniti sports bra
(tattoos not included with clothing purchase ;)
Versatile Low Rise Short:
These shorts sit perfectly on me! With the low rise waistline, with a thicker cinched ribbing, these suit those of us who are of the shorter persuasion and work well for both running and cross training. They have a built-in pair of 'bloomers' and have plenty of movement with leg room that isn't tight at all. These have a tad more of a slimmer fit than the Glycerin short, and are about $10 less in price (MSRP $30)
• Fit: Semi-fitted • 3½" inseam • Light woven polyester with wicking body
• Low-rise and slimmer fit • Outer pockets with contrast piping
• Wide comfort waistband • 360° of 3M™ Scotchlite™ retroreflectivity
I have to say that I love the Versatile short and the Glycerin short pretty much equally. They both sit perfectly on my 'vertically challenged' frame and have a lot of room for movement. With built in 'bloomers' you can use these for running or I even wear them for Crossfit. The main difference on the Glycerin short would be the waistline - it's not cinched and has a more relaxed feel while being stretchy. Also, there is a hidden pocket on the back right. (MSRP $40)
• Fit: Semi-fitted • 3½" inseam • Wide moisture-moving waistband
• Envelope-style back pocket • Soft inner liner
Infinity Sports bra:
This is my go-to sports bra from Brooks! Being a compression bra, it has the best support for 'my girls' when I run or do any sort of cross training. I like that the straps, in a racerback shape, in the back are adjustable as well. It fits well in all of my shirts and keeps it all in place - available in A/B or C/D for a more personalized feel! (MSRP $48)
• Fit: Fitted • Great support with adjustable straps
• Encapsulated compression bra • Contour cup shapes with increased modesty
• Mesh panels in key areas • Moisture-wicking elastic band
All three of these pieces are great for all kinds of workouts and with them being basic black (they all also come in a wide variety of colors) they go well with any color top or shoes - because fitness fashion is a MUST!
What are your requirements for "must have" workout apparel?? Comfort? Fit? Color? etc?
Do you enjoy chicking the boys?
