As women, we all have a lot on our plates so we thought it might be fun to talk a little about how some of the products we carry can make life just a little bit easier. Today’s topic: Working out!
Let me start by saying that I am about the farthest one could possibly get from being an athlete if you ever see me running anywhere, something terrible is probably chasing me. I do understand the many benefits of exercise and I’ve tried to find ways to work out that I enjoy. For me, this looks like purposeful movement farm chores, hiking, sometimes pilates or yoga if I think to take a class, and on a day when I feel particularly motivated, lowimpact cardio, so my recommendations are geared towards what I know.
In highschool, I wore a compressionstyle sports bra over a regular bra because to me, nothing was worse than feeling distracted by too much breast movement during gym class. Fast forward to now, when I’ve become a collector of the Panache Underwired Sports Bra. I have two, and am always contemplating whether or not I really need a third. I’ve waxed poetic about my fondness for its superior motion control, but in all seriousness, it makes me want to exercise more and that has to be a good thing, right? Extra bonus this bra has an amazing size range all the way up to a UK H, so for bustier ladies looking to keep themselves supported during a workout this is a great option.
For yoga or pilates however, I’m much fonder of a nowire solution. We carry the Anita Extreme Sport, which features a moisturewicking lining to keep you cool and comfortable, and a wider elastic band to help provide lift and support. If you’d prefer something even more gentle consider the bralette offerings from Blue Canoe. Made of bamboo and cotton, they are great options for low impact activities, and the bamboo content is naturally antimicrobial.
Let’s talk bottoms for a minute. I think we all want to feel as fresh as possible and thankfully, we have a really awesome solution. Knock Out panties endorsed by Oprah, and by us here at Derriere de Soie. I love their boyshorts though we now have a basic brief, thong, and control thong, all with the same moisture control properties. An extra liner keeps you fresh when working out and can also help manage any spotting. They wash and wear well and are a lifesaver for hot days or intense workouts (or both!). We also have some beautiful stretchknit Miel bottoms, which feature GuardinTM technology to eliminate odor retention and keep you fresh in a supersoft fabric. As an extra bonus, they also make a lovely bralette with the same fabric it is best for smaller cup sizes, but provides a gentle level of support and incredible softness.
We hope this helps you in whatever movement keeps you going and we’re also really excited to announce that we’ll be partnering with Barre.[d] Studio, located just off the Downtown Mall, for a really sweet promotion keep in touch with us on Facebook or Instagram for more information.
