As far as sports bras go, Calvin Klein will always come first. There are two main designs: One style is extremely supportive and made with thicker material, which is ideal for keeping “the girls” secure while working out. This is especially helpful to those with larger chests. The other style is a thinner material that is so heavenly soft sometimes I have to check to make sure I’m still wearing it. I wear this style to work out in; however, I do think it is generally better used for daily wear and sleeping.
When you hear the words: “Calvin Klein”, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Most people would likely answer underwear, or more specifically, the quintessential underwear models. Calvin Klein is a brand that has been extremely successful over the years with claiming ownership of select categories of clothing. In the 80’s it was jeans. Brooke Shields said, “My Calvins” and the world saw jeans. Nowadays, we’ve stripped off our jeans and when I say Calvins, you think underwear. Although the iconic gray boy shorts are undeniably fantastic, I believe that an alternative, yet similar, area of Calvin Klein deserves an equal amount of recognition.
If you do yourselves any fashion favors during this new year, exploring the Calvin Klein performance wear line should be one of them. Over the past month, I’ve become obsessed with their athletic pants and sports bras. Leave it to Calvin to design workout clothes that I opt to wear over a fabulous, full outfit. The pants and shorts are perfect to work out in because they are tight enough to stay in place, but also comfortable enough to move around in, restriction free. Even if you’re not headed to the gym, they act as a chic pair of leggings or lounge wear.
You may be thinking, is this girl really recommending I buy designer work out clothes? Yes, I am! Because guess what, they are not designer priced. I got all of mine from Macy’s for $40 at the most. That’s cheaper than the brands they sell at athletic stores, and it includes additional chicness, and an insane amount of comfort. I cannot stress enough how happy I am to have found these pieces. Buy yourselves an outfit, or fifty, and you’ll understand why you won’t catch me rocking much else.
