My life these days revolves around work; creating new FORME workouts being one of the things that takes up most of my time. Target® asked to work with me after my last post with them, and this time I tried one of their new pairs of leggings and a sports bra during one of my classes and while designing the new workout at my house. I popped into the Target® up the street from my house and fell in love with the leopard print full leggings and the seamless padded bra from Target® C9. In my last post, I commented that I was upset that the majority of the collection was a cotton-based fabric, as cotton isn’t great for workouts. This time, I was pleasantly surprised to find ample selection of performance-based fabrics, a 88% polyester/12% Lycra. I chose the C9 Women’s Leggings in leopard print and the Seamless Bra with Removable Cups and really liked both pieces.
The bra and leggings were really comfortable. The rise of the waistband was nice and high; it came up to my belly button, which gives full coverage for squats and lunges. I wore them all day while I worked from home choosing songs for the new playlist and choreographing the workout, and I was comfy and able to top up and try things at any time. I also taught 2 back-to-back FORME classes that evening, and I will say that the leggings stretched out a bit. I’m a traditional size 4 and bought a small, but I found myself tugging them up throughout the workout. I couldn’t have sized down, as my legs wouldn’t have gotten into an x-small. I got so many compliments on them, and they are really cute! I would buy another pair, but I would only use them as a fashion legging or for lounging about my house. The bra? I’d buy it in a million colors and wear it every day. Target® C9 has a major win here.
Out of 5 stars, I’d give the leggings a 3.5 and the bra a 5. Room for improvement on the leggings, but feel free to call me, Target® design team, I’ll help you fix it!
