About a month ago I announced that I was a Karma Activist. For a number of years I have been searching for a clothing company that I could stand behind and recommend to all of you ... I'm happy to say the search is over!!!
Fashion vs. Function? Not with this active wear. First I'll talk about my favourite piece ... the Helena Bra. I saw all those cute strappy bras & tops in the stores ..... even tried a few of them on, but they clearly were NOT for women who had bigger breasts. You may have even heard me say that I wanted to design my own line of cute tops & bras for the bigger breasted mover. Now I don't have to!!! Cute & Strappy? Yes! But does it provide support & coverage? YES! & YES!! My favourite feature has to be the high neck. Down dog, low lunge & wild thing in front of a class with NO FEAR of a wardrobe malfunction. Lol. I wore this bra for every class I taught in an 18 class week, it didn't lose shape, support or comfort. The level of support is excellent and stood up to high performance boot camp with ease.
OK, so it holds up to a week of heavy use, but how did it stand up to the washing machine? Gentle cycle on cold, hung dry and it's just like new. No stretching, no fading & most importantly, no damage! The sizing is on the small side, which is the only downside. I am a 36C and took a size large. The largest size they currently carry is extra large.
If how & where your clothing is made is as important to you as it is to me, then you'll be happy to hear that Karma Athletics is based out of Vancouver & their clothes are still made there too! Made & designed in Canada, you'll be contributing to our provincial economy by purchasing from this company. Their practices are ethical, and employees are paid a fair wage under fantastic working conditions.
To celebrate this marvellous collaboration between Karma Athletics & myself, they are allowing me to pass on a special offer to you. If I've convinced you that you NEED to have a Helena Bra for yourself, or anything else for that matter, then you're in luck. Simply use the promo code fenixyoga10 when making your online purchase, and you will save 10% on your first order from Karma Athletics.
I also have the Golda tights & the Peggy Tank. I'll be sharing my review of those in the next few weeks, but in a sentence .... the tights are cute, supportive & highly functional. The tank is the softest top I own. I love the flowy feel and it looks awesome with the Helena Bra.
You'll also want to watch your inbox for special events that Karma Athletics & I will be co-hosting throughout the summer. We are proud. Be proud too. Stand with us. #KarmaAthletics.
