Ellie September Fall Fitness Outfit Review
Each month, you get to choose one of three fitness outfits that you’d like to receive. (You have until the 4th of the month to pick.) You can also skip the month and not be billed.
This month, I picked the “Vinyasa Vibes” outfit. FYI, the tops I got are size medium, and the bottoms are size large.
Inter-Lace High Waist Legging
The star of the show here is definitely the leggings. I wasn’t sure how they would look on me, but they’re so eye-catching that I had to try. I’m used to lace-up legging styles that start/end at the ankle, and being that I’m on the shorter side at 5′ 3″, that’s the part of leggings that usually gets scrunched up and doesn’t lay so glamorously. The cutouts on these black high-waisted leggings (which are 90% polyester, 10% spandex/elastane) fall a little higher up, and I think they look pretty cool. The design kind of wraps around my calves in a neat way. There’s a weird fraying section at the top of the design that I’m a little worried about, but otherwise, I think they look neat. The top edge of the high waist sort of nips in just a bit, so that they actually stay put on top of my hips. That’s much appreciated!
This stretchy (98% nylon, 2% spandex) zip-up is dotted with holes to keep it from getting too stuffy after a sweaty class. It’s light and pretty warm for being so thin. I love a jacket with thumbholes, too. I feel like I’d sport this between my car and class, or throw it on before a jog on a chilly day. The fact that it’s so streamlined makes it feel just right for running/active outdoor workouts.
Audrey Sports Bra
As you can tell, this bra was a little tight on me. My back, in particular, is pretty broad, so I like when pieces have just a bit more give (or else just more coverage, so I don’t feel like I’m falling out of it). The interlaced details on the back are cool, though, and I do appreciate feeling like the bra isn’t going anywhere! I might save this bra for non-yoga workouts when I’m less concerned about comfortably twisting and moving around.
I’ve gotten into slippery situations in yoga class before, so I can totally see the appeal of these sticky gloves. My hands are a little on the small side, and I do feel like these knit 88% cotton, 12% elastane gloves are a little on the loose side to prove helpful. (In other words, the gloves might stick better, but I feel like my hands are sliding around inside the gloves.)
Straps are super helpful when you’re feeling less than bendy. This one’s rose-gold hardware and gray camo-style pattern make it one of the chicest yoga straps I’ve seen from a subscription box. It’s smooth and soft, too.
Verdict: I could’ve sized up with the bra, but everything else was pretty A+ this month! I don’t know if I’ll get a lot of use out of the gloves in yoga class (would it be weird if I wore them as actual gloves?), but everything else is going to be in regular rotation for me. I’ve gotta say, I really appreciate how seasonal the options were. Some subscriptions connect you with affordable high-quality gear, but it might not be tailored to the weather at hand. So getting a little jacket to keep me warm on brisk fall days makes me very happy 🙂
