I spend entirely too much time in workout clothes. Granted, I do workout every day (even while on vacation), but an hour sweating it out with my trainer doesn’t constitute spending the entire day in spandex and lycra and other sweat resistant clothes.
But I still do it.
Shopping on Zappos.com the other day I ran across the brand Lucy. I’m really not sure why I’d never heard of it before – there is literally a storefront less than two miles from my house.
They had a ton of great stuff that looked good online, but I found this fun chevron printed tank ($55) and thought I’d give it a go. Because chevron always makes sweat look better, right?
I’m pretty selective with my workout gear – it’s got to fit well, compliment my body shape, and it’s most definitely got to be able to hold its own in the gym or on the running trail. Function first, fashion shortly thereafter.
This particular tank (named I Run This) is moisture wicking, quick drying/breathable and ideal for high-energy activities. I’ve said this before, but I tend to run errands after a hard gym session, so a quick drying tank or shorts is almost a necessity for me. I may not smell amazing sitting at Starbucks, but at least I won’t look sweaty or feel well.
Since I am so selective with workout gear, I only branched out with this brand because Zappos.com offers free shipping and free returns, so if it didn’t fit or I didn’t like the look and feel of the tank, I could return it without any hassle.
