This is a collaboration with Athleta. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that work with Meet at the Barre.
When I’m not in work clothes, I’m most likely in my barre workout clothes. I have been teaching barre for just over 4 years so I’ve had the opportunity to try out a ton of workout lines. I demand a lot of my barre gear. They have to be comfortable enough to teach multiple classes in, don’t lose their stretch, wick away sweat, and the quality has to hold up. One of my favorites especially when it comes to pants/leggings are Athleta. They have a great price point, the quality holds up over time, and they are some of my go-to favs for all things barre.
These Mesh Shine Salutation leggings with Powervita fabric are so soft! I veered away from my traditional black pants and went with this pretty lilac color. They aren’t too low but not super high waisted, they pretty much hit in the perfect spot. They have just enough stretch but good compression. They do not lose their shape and are super dry wicking. I reach for these now as much as I can. To help accommodate my bump, I just sized up but they run true to size.
I have been trying to stay fit throughout my pregnancy. My goal has been to take 3 barre classes a week in the studio. I then supplement other days with at home workouts and some walking around my neighborhood. It is definitely getting a little harder to move my bowling ball of a child around but I’m really trying to make a conscious effort to stay in shape with this pregnancy. I know it will help with my delivery, keep this kiddo healthy, and bounce back on the other side. You know half the fun of working out is having cute clothes to go along with it. Not only are these fashionable but they are so functional and will stand the test of time. I demand a lot out of my barre clothes and Athleta always stands up to the test. I also really love the support of this bra and it’s on sale!
I highly recommend you consider these performance tights from Athleta. They are soft, dry wicking and worth every penny. Plus, I love the cuts and innovative design. Make sure to check them out! Tell me who is your favorite workout brand? Have you had a chance to snag any Athleta pieces? I’d love to hear your thoughts on the brand.
