Palm Beach Athletic Wear Review {#FitFluential} plus FREE TRX Training, a Giveaway for Wellness Coaching and a $50 Palm Beach Athletic Wear Gift Certificate!

by Lisa on September 24, 2012

 

When I was offered the opportunity to do a review for Palm Beach Athletic Wear, I jumped on it—the clothes looked great online, and I’m always looking for new brands to try!

Kristen from Palm Beach Athletic Wear sent me the gear at no cost, and I agreed to do a review. The opinions here are 100% my own.

Yesterday, I mentioned my resourcefulness in managing my own photo shoot for this review…well, I’ll be honest, my resourcefulness far outweighed my photography skills using the iPhone, tripod, and camera timer. It was a little too bright, the surfaces were a little unpredictable, and I clearly have no skill with camera angle (or timers) in this arena. But I tried to pull together enough acceptable pics that would show you what the clothes are like and how they fit. (And I’ll post some outtakes tomorrow just for kicks!).

Kristen sent me the following:

  • Coral Pink Multi Way Tank (size small)
  • Gray Basic Short (size small)
  • Element V Headband (one size)
  • Palm Beach Athletic Wear Logo Tank (size small)

My reaction:

 

I love the top. It fits really well and stays in place. Size Small was perfect, and it’s the right length (many tops I’ve bought recently have been really long).

There is a shelf bra, no padding, and along with dimrs, I’d wear this top for any workout or to any class (spinning, yoga, etc.). I read that you can cross the straps in the front too, but I didn’t know that till just now. I like the idea, but it’s not really my style (although

I’m sure I’ll try it and see).

The shorts are great too. I am SO picky about fitted shorts. They can’t ride up. They must be super low rise. They have to look flattering from all angles (and let’s face it, those things can be hard to find in short fitted shorts). These shorts fulfilled all of my requirements–I did all kinds of workout moves (yoga, TRX, handstands, etc.), and they did not need to be adjusted. I did fold the

top down, and this worked great—many of my workout bottoms come unfolded as I work out so I have to keep fixing them, and these stayed put. Note: they’re still low enough un-folded, and work great both ways.

 

The headband rocks. I love headbands for working out, especially in the mornings when my hair is not looking its finest. I have kind of a big head (at least that’s what my sister always told me), and so headbands often slide backwards and stop doing their job (or fall off during yoga). As a result, I usually buy headbands with the grippy things on them—this headband did not have a grip, but it didn’t slip at all and it wasn’t too tight. Note: the headband has red in it, so it doesn’t really coordinate with the coral top, but I wanted to wear everything together–just don’t buy those two things  thinking they match!

20120924-135041.jpgLast but not least, the logo tank is super soft. If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with ribbed tank tops. I do sometimes wear cotton ones to work out in (even though it can be a little soggy when I sweat a lot), and I also wear them to bed, and with jeans or shorts, and well, most of the time (and I don’t expect that to change since I’m skipping winter this year!). As a habit, I don’t wear a lot of apparel with big logos on it but I do see myself wearing this around the house or to workout in (I have some great Mizunos that will match the blue!).

 

There you have it. My review of the goods, and a few pics.

What do you think? Are you ready to place an order? Kristen also sent me a bunch of 10% off coupons, so if you want one, let me know in the comments and I’ll pick some people to send them to.

Here’s the other fun part about this post…
