Another Ellie Review + GIVEAWAY!

20 percent of Ellie

That's right, one giveaway ended last week and another one is starting today! I recently received some more workout clothing from Ellie (some provided by Ellie, some I purchased myself). One of the tops doesn't fit me so I'm giving it away to one of my readers! Also, my readers get 20% their first purchase, just click here!

First of all, Ellie is a new company that provides quality athletic wear at a great price. I've been impressed with each piece I've tried out at the gym. The clothing is fashionable, functional, and much less expensive than popular athletic brands. My friend and I were talking the other day about how we do our laundry based on when we run out of workout clothes. This is a good problem to have because it means I'm working out a lot but, with the amount that I do workout, I really could use some more athletic clothing. I also like that Ellie is fashionable because working out, especially in group setting like I do, is really a social activity, so why not look good? (Don't worry, I'm not one of those that wears make-up at 6 am in the gym...)

The Little Black Capri are just as comfortable and amazing at the Electric Love capris I got last month. The waistband is wide and they are a good length. They also mold to my skin while I'm working out so it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing pants. I always do the "squat test" with workout bottoms and these pass the test! I'm wearing a size S.

The Black Swan Tank is a little tighter than my usual taste (this is an XS and next time I will get a S). I do however really like the design on the back, it is very pretty. I wore this top to my first Bikram (hot) yoga class and it was actually good that it was tight. It held sweat well in the 110-degree room. The top is also long which is great because it doesn't ride up as easily. The top does contain a shelf bra which was fine for me in yoga but you would probably want to wear a sports bra if you're larger than a B cup or doing an intense activity. 

The Kiss Me Capri are also very similar to the other capris with a wide waistband (I'm wearing a size S). I love the pink detail and it matches the Under Your Spell bra. I got the bra in a size XS and it definitely runs large so I would order a size down. I love how pretty it is and the back detail is great. The bra is not tight enough for running but great for other activities (medium support).

The Vixen top is so pretty and fashionable but I was sent a size S and it's too big on me, so I'm giving it away to one of my readers! I have a small upper-body but it should fit anyone that usually wears a size S or M in tops. It's sold out online so this is your only chance to get it!!
