After a very long hiatus, I’m back and ready to tell you all about my favorite brand- Girlfriend Collective. Girlfriend collective first caught my eye years ago when they were offering to send you free leggings. I thought it was too good to be true and passed on the opportunity; given that I now own 4 pairs of their leggings I kick myself at night for missing it. If you’re not familiar with the brand they started in 2017 initially with leggings and now carry a myriad of products that are made out of recycled materials (predominately plastic). You can learn more about them here: https://www.girlfriend.com/pages/about
My first set was a pair of leggings and their Paloma top in plum. The Paloma is a cute scoop neck with decent stomach coverage and shows a little bit of cleavage. The top and bottom are both pretty compressive which provides a level of feeling supported- however the first class I wore these bad boys to was a boxing class and my boob almost punched me in the face I would advise that if you’re a little more blessed in the chest to size up from what your normal size is. I also own their Topanga bra which is more of a halter top style- no cleavage but better coverage. I also have the Dylan bra which has built in cups so it’s the most supportive of the three styles that I own. Their leggings come in different lengths which is great for a shorty like me. I find that the 3/4 length leggings hit me at just the right spot, they’re full length on me (I’m 5’2″). I generally wear their items for lower impact activities such as yoga, barre and SoulCycle; I have yet to take them on a run but I will try this summer.
As a true fanatic I have a pair of their pjs, sweats and recently purchased a puffer jacket. Have you tried them out yet? Let me know below!
P.s. apologies for the mirror selfies with this year I haven’t had as many chances to get out and about. I had some hesitancy about posting them but would rather give you an honest view and a review with photos 🙂
