I have bought a lot of sports wear over the last ten years or so – much of it from places like TK Maxx, JD Sports and Sweaty Betty. But there’s one brand that I keep on coming back to, especially for sports bras and more fitted items, and that’s Casall. Casall’s products are slightly more expensive than the average, but they’re amazing quality and they last for absolutely ages. I still have my sports bras from five years ago and they must have been through the wash a few hundred times!
In preparation for Operation Go! next week I have been throwing out old, skanky bits of gym kit and replacing them with nice, fresh new bits! First purchases have been a black ‘Essential Tank’ and the ‘Drawstring Capri’ both from Casall. The top is tight, so I’ll have to keep breathing in, but I find that this helps to motivate me when I’m in a class! If I have on a baggy Tee that hides my sins, I don’t engage those abs and core muscles quite so violently!
I bought the Capri pants in the marl grey colour – they’re quite tight-fitting around the bottom but they don’t cut in so they’re not unflattering. No annoying flappy trouser around the ankles, and the legs of them won’t ride up when I do some kind of excruciatingly painful ‘legs in the air’ exercise position.
