Pink Soda Sport, from JD Sports recently launched a couple of new collections including some performance wear which instantaneously caught my eye of course. The other main attraction was the colour; I love khaki (…and khaki means green over here in the UK).
I ordered myself the Chunky mesh tights £32 (size 10), Chunky mesh bra £20 (size 8) and the Reps tank top £18 (size 10). I’ve not worn Pink Soda before so was unsure how their sizes came up and I didn’t want the trouble of having to send anything back to change the sizes so I played it safe with a size 10 and a smaller bra.
My first thoughts on the kit are that the quality is actually very good. The material is thick and most definitely not see-through which is a great start considering the price points. The tank is a loose fit so size was never really going to be an issue and the bra isn’t a high support bra so I was more than happy with the fit of those. I do however think I could have, or should have, gone a size down in the tights. They come up extremely high, which would be amazing if they weren’t so loose on the waist. When I’m wearing the tank this isn’t an issue but if I want to wear the bra without the tank then I have to fold over the waist to make it a little tighter but this also makes it a lot lower. Im thinking the 8 might’ve been a squeeze to get into but the fit would make it worthwhile.
My new test of workout gear if how they handle my double session of teaching Lift every Thursday morning. The class involves the use of lifting bars and covers every muscle group and exercise you can think of including squats, lunges and press ups. Even though I don’t do the classes at 100% effort (workout wise), it’s still a total sweatfest from the minute we get into the first track after the warmup.
I managed to teach my classes and then go about my business for the morning without worrying about visible sweat patches or feeling uncomfortable which is a major win for me.
Will these remain in my fitkit line up… yes for sure to the bra and the tank, and even a yes to the tights. The colours are bang on trend and the bra and tank especially are still perfect for this mini heatwave that has hit London Town!
