Ellie Women’s Fitness Clothing “Full Bloom” October 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 my invoice for this month.
Heidi Hoodie Pullover by Marika, Size L
This month I chose the Full Bloom collection because I loved the floral pattern and I thought that green hoodie looked like it would be a nice cozy layer on top. I have to say, I loved reading the comments on my last review about how many others like to just lounge in these, too! In 2020 workout clothes are mandatory while the workout itself is optional! As for this hoodie, it’s a little tighter and more athletic than I expected, but I really love this unique blue-green color. I like the rounded hem and the thumb-holes which are great for cooler weather or wearing it underneath a jacket. It also pairs nicely with the pants in this outfit.
Printed Eclipse Legging by Marika, Size L
In addition to the colors and the fun floral pattern, the other thing that drew me to this collection was the fact that these leggings have pockets! Since I like to lounge in them, it’s handy to have somewhere to put my phone while I’m moving about the house. I also like that these leggings are high-rise. After having 3 kids and loving the way maternity leggings covered my belly for a more slimming effect, I have learned to love high-rise leggings.
Layla Long Sports Bra by Marika, Size L
I really like the way this bra fits. It has a tighter section underneath with a fitted band under the bust and then the layer on top is nice and loose. It provides support but is still comfortable to wear and it’s pretty full coverage too since it’s longer than most. I like that it has a deep back which makes will be great when working up a sweat. It also has removable cup pads and a dry-wik finish.
Verdict: This month’s Ellie selection didn’t wow me as much as last month‘s (it was just so cozy and soft), but considering this is for working out instead of lounging, I think it was still a good choice! The florals just weren’t as pretty in person as I expected, but I still really love the colors and think it’s something cute and different. I also love that the pants have pockets and it’s a comfortable outfit. I couldn’t locate retail values for any of these, but I think it’s a decent value at $44.95 for athletic leggings, a supportive matching bra, and a cute hoodie to throw over it!
