I was recently given a Lucy Activeware yoga outfit by my sister Siga, who got it as part of a goodie bag at an evening event. Specifically included were the Dashing Dots Space Dye Tight pants and the Dashing Dots tank top.
Besides my first impression, which was that this was a very generous goodie bag, I also have been pleasantly surprised by the quality and feel of the clothes.
The first time I put on the pants the first thing I felt was comfort and gentle support. They are made of a combination of nylon, polyester and Lycra and they have hit the fabric combination jackpot. I have now worn them once a week for a couple months. And they have performed great. They do whisk the sweat away until of course I am drenched through in a heated class, yet even then they do not feel sticky. I like that they are tight to the legs. This beats the old style pant that hangs with all kinds of extra fabric you don’t know what to do with. And I like that they made a little bit of a seem right at the ankle so that the pant leg does not creep all the way up around my calf.
The tank top is comfortable as well. The inner bra is adjustable! How many times have you put on a yoga top and not been able to breath? I let the inner bra detach from the inside on both sides and that gives me plenty of room to breathe. The tank has just enough fabric. It fits the body and flatters the body – well cut.
I have now worn the whole outfit once a week for the past couple of months and it has washed and dried easily. The materials reflect that they have been created with thoughtful technology. Having had this outfit I am ready to purchase another, as the costs are reasonable when compared with other retailers. Taking a look at their website I am impressed with the colors, prints and other styles. Besides yoga they also carry running and training styles. I look forward to padding my yoga wear wardrobe with some Lucy!
