Boudavida Activewear helping me feel more confident in the gym + Giveaway

Who has rummaged in the back of their drawer for gym kit, to pull it out and realise just how old it is? I used to spend loads on gym kit and loved buying stuff for the gym, but over the years, 3 children later, I thought my gym days were probably over. When I started working out from home months ago now, it didn’t matter that I was wearing some old gym leggings (ok, very old) and whatever top I didn’t mind getting sweaty in. But once I had built back up my confidence and started back at the gym, I realised I was in pretty desperate need of some new gym kit. Squatting in old yoga pants isn’t very wise! Also when you exercise most days, you go through a lot of kit and I was using not having enough as an excuse to miss a day.

I really did think my gym days were over, however I am now loving regular exercise. I still do a couple of workouts from home a week but I head to the gym for leg day to use the weights. Something I wouldn’t have thought I would be comfortable with. Having some nice gym gear really makes a difference. It’s also great to wear to do the School run in on this mornings where I drop the kids off first. I will even admit to going for a quick coffee before pre school, pick up instead of the gym, but shhhhh!

Boudavida recently sent me some gorgeous new kit to try out. 

Boudavida are a sports and activewear company with a difference. They don’t just want to sell kit, they want to bring fashion and function together to create clothing that makes women feel good about their bodies and inspire them to get active. Boudavida also donate 5% of every sale back into projects that support women’s and girls’ sport. 

I was sent a pair of Zoom leggings in leaf print. With a striking Boudavida branded waistband, mesh panelling and high waisted design, fashion and function are united. I can confirm they are also squat proof. 

I was also sent a Pow Tank in Granite. A relaxed, longline vest style with dropped armholes, which hangs lower on the body to give a highly flattering shape. Fast-drying and moisture-wicking for superior textile performance while you exercise. I decided to layer it over a pretty purple crop top that I already have. 

Both items fit well and feel comfortable. The top is really soft and airy but also a flattering shape. The leggings seem to hold you in, in all the right places. I particularly like the mesh detail panelling at the back of the leggings. The kit is definitely stylish and vibrant and I felt more up to date in the gym!

These Boudavida gym clothes aren’t cheap, but they are good quality and I think you will get a lot of wear out of them. Also speaking from experience, cheap gym leggings are not your friend if you squat! They go see through! I definitely think you need to invest in a pair of decent leggings and high waisted ones are also fab for a Mum tum! 

Both the leggings and top come in sizes 8-18. They retail at £72 for the leggings and £55 for the top.
