Working out is never that fun for me. Sweating? Yech. But staying healthy is important and what help gets me motivated? Cute workout clothes! Enter lucy – my recent favorite go-to source. One of the keys for me is that whenever I throw on lucy pieces, they actually make me feel slimmer – and therefore, motivates me further to get sweating!
From my favorite yoga class to Fitness Blender cardio videos to a quick run, I’m all about a good pant that doesn’t slide when you’re moving. The Perfect Core Pants (I prefer the Legging or Capri Legging) has been upgraded recently, and I was super excited to try it out. New additions? There is extra compression at the lower waist, which is great when I’m concentrating on working my core, as well as wider side, hip and thigh compression panels to keep you looking smooth and slender. I definitely felt the compression, without it being oppressive on my body.
Also, if you haven’t invested in a good workout bra, let me just say that it is SO helpful, especially if you’ve got a larger bust. You can totally get away with wearing a simple one, but getting the support you need makes working out a lot more comfortable. The lucy Perfect Core Bra is a great racerback style that has power mesh lining in the front with a light internal foam cup – great for support – and flat seaming to discourage irritation. Of course, it has the brand’s signature powermax technology that keeps moisture and sweat at bay.
Lastly, who doesn’t love a cozy top to warm up or cool down in? The Surrender Cowl is my latest favorite – combining super soft sweatshirt material with a sleeker cowlneck sweater form. The cowlneck gives it that extra cozy factor, which is definitely wonderful since the weather is still cool!
