Remember the days when yoga pants and sports bras were reserved strictly for the gym? That’s okay, we don’t either. As far as we’re concerned it’s acceptable to wear activewear all day, everyday — even if you don’t plan on breaking a sweat. So naturally we were psyched to get our hands on some new gear from Avocado Activewear – and not just because it’s named after our favorite fruit. The line is sweatshop free and made from super high quality eco-friendly fabric, so you can feel good about wearing it. Plus, it’s designed to hug your curves in all the right places, so you’ll look as good as you feel.(We also like that it’s made in the U.S.A. – how many brands can say that?)

The pants we tried were lightweight and super-comfy and the fabric was thick enough to protect us from any embarrassing VPL. The sports bra gets full marks for performance (meaning it keeps the girls comfortably in place) but it’s cute enough to double as a top. Functional and fashionable, Avocado Activewear is goodness from the inside out.
