Ellie Women’s Fitness Clothing “Solar Flare” September 2020 Review
At the beginning of each month, Ellie releases new collections. You can choose which one you want or skip that month if you don’t want any of them and you won’t be charged.
This shiny envelope held our invoice and some samples.
Nuun Sport Tablets – Buy a 10 Serving tube for $7.00
I received three Nuun Sport samples which are these fizzy tabs you pop in your water for some added hydration before, during, or after a workout. I’m looking forward to trying these!
This month I chose the Solar Flare collection based on this super cozy-looking pullover. The color is described as “heather wild plum” and it’s so pretty and just as soft as I had hoped. It has just the right amount of stretch to it and the open crisscross detail at the back is a fun detail that also gets a little bit of airflow going for you. This will be great to wear over a tank when I’m warming up or if I decide to head outside for a workout this fall. I also think I could get away with wearing this over some regular leggings for an everyday look, too!
These leggings are actually butter-soft and have a good amount of stretch to them while those shiny rose gold sparks at the bottom add some flair. Even though I could probably comfortably size up (Quarantine hips! What’s the statute of limitations on this excuse, btw?) since they were a bit tight on my hips, I wore these for a good part of the day comfortably without them riding down or feeling too tight. I really love these and can see myself reaching for these often! As for the foil accents, they seem like part of the fabric and don’t seem as though they will rub off, although I may just hang these to dry instead of throwing them in the dryer.
Ivy Sports Bra by Marika, Size L
While normally I would shy away from taking a photo in a sports bra, this longer style combined with the high waist of the leggings proved to be a bit more modest than I expected; in a good way! I love that this bra has the fun shiny sparks detail on it and it is just as soft as the pants. I actually put this on directly after a shower and it went on smoothly, which if you’ve ever done that before, you know it can get tricky depending on the bra! This one is really comfortable and has some nice mesh details that I think will add to the comfort. The front panel is loose and lifts up to reveal a more fitted section that has removable inserts. While I appreciate the padding inside, they did come all bunched up, which is a huge pet peeve. Luckily, once I sorted them out they stayed in place!
Verdict: I really loved my Ellie selection this month and apparently so did everyone else since it is now sold out! The material was soft, stretchy and so comfortable. I also think that I can wear the sweatshirt any time since it’s very simple and doesn’t scream workout gear. This subscription is such fun since you get to pick exactly what you want and there’s always a nice variety. The retail value of the athletic leggings and sweatshirt alone comes to $118 ($41.99 with sale prices) and that doesn’t even include the great sports bra, so I am really happy with the quality of the styles I received this month for $44.95!
