I'm so tired of buying new workout gear and it's not comfortable or don't work well or whatever. So I will now be writing about the clothes I buy and try to maybe help a sistah out? I lift weights, do yoga, cardio and run around with my two kids. I'd like to find clothes I can do all the above in.
My first review, the Tuff Athletics pants from Costco.
First and foremost, I must say I adore they are made in Canada. I love to support or local economy as much as I can, and a company that can offer a competitive price for workout pants and be made in Canada, good on ya.
The fit. While I'm usually a size small on the bottom, These seemed okay at first, but within minutes of working out they seemed a little big. I'm 5'2" and MAYBE could have stretched these more to be pants, but I personally prefer crops, so that's how I wear them.
The material is really nice. I love the funky print on these (mainly the reason I bought them). I saw black and straight grey too, if you're looking for something a little more basic. I couldn't see sweat marks on the outside. Yeah we all know what I'm talking about. So that's a pretty big bonus. There is a cute scrunching detail on the back too that's flattering.
The drawstring is irritating. You either have to fold over the pant to use the string or have a bit of a lump from tying it up behind it. This is where I'm not super happy with these pants. When you fold them over, like many other styles of workout/yoga pants they sit way to low. And if you have a bit of extra's in that area that you'd like "tucked" in during your workout, this won't cut it. I'm going to take the string out, which is easier said then done. That sucker is in there.
Overall, not bad for the $16.99 I paid for them, if I can get that drawstring out. I would recommend if you are maybe in between sizes, go with the smaller size.
