Get Fit With American Apparel

Saturday, February 28, 2015
When we see spring and summer fast approaching, everyone seems to be on a exercise/health kick and I am just the same. The new year, new me quote might be cheesy but it is applicable to most of us at this time of the year. I have been slowing getting into excising again after stuffing my face and hibernating over the past couple of months. One motivating factor for me is new workout gear; I was kindly allowed to pick an item from the online store BuyTshirtsOnline and I thought that it would be a great oppertunity to pick a workout item. 

I chose the *American Apparel Sports Bra (£10.78, Nocturnal Black) in a size Medium. I haven't bought anything from this brand before so I didn't know which size to choose from but using the size guides online, I picked a Medium which actually fits me really well (for reference I am a UK 8-10 and a 34B generally). It is a tiny bit too big but on the whole it fits very well. I love the design, it is basic but comfortable and supportive to an extent; I would definitely say it is more of a light/medium workout bra - not for running or strenuous exercise!

The material is not fully stretchy, it is quite thick and durable. It is composed of mostly nylon as well as elastane. I've been wearing it with loose basic t-shirts from Primark and my H&M workout cropped leggings as well as Matalan joggers. I exercise at home (I would never go to a gym) and I mainly use my yoga dvd but I have been following the Gillian Michaels 30 day shred again which is one of the best workout dvds I have tried - I definitely see results! A new one that I am trying out is the Davina 7 Minute DVD which is pretty good so far. 

Overall, I am really happy with this sports bra, even though I wasn't sure of the sizing, I can definitely recommend this American Apparel sports bra. BuyT-shirtsOnline have amazing prices on American Apparel items. I have my eye on their raglan shirts, running shorts and tri-blend shirts, here is my mini wish list:

Have you bought clothing from American Apparel? Have you bought anything from Buy Tshirts Online?
