Feel Fit Signature Bralette and Full-Length Leggings
Spend all day in Feel Fit’s fabulously chic khaki green set running errands, lounging around, taking the dog for a walk, whatever really. The soft, delicate and super flattering Signature Bralette comes with medium support thanks to the carefully constructed supportive underband. The Signature Full-length Leggings are equally as supportive as the high-waistband has a built-in foldover top to ensure it never digs in. Both pieces are size inclusive ranging from XXS – XXL and have a soft silky feel. You’d never know the ultra-flat and pilling-resistant fabric is made from Econyl which is regenerated nylon made from recycled fishing nets. Feel Fit also participates in a tree planting scheme in pursuit of carbon neutrality and comes in completely compostable packaging which we couldn’t love more!
Luxury Legs – Dear Denier Lena Seamless Rib Leggings
Copenhagen-based Dear Denier has created the perfect body-sculpting leggings made with no seams to bother you and a 3D weaving technology for the best possible fit! No matter if you’re running, running errands, into yoga or squatting in the gym, the flexible fabric allows for full body movement. The extra high waistband is also hand-sewn meaning it will not roll down or pinch. With sustainability a top priority, these leggings are made with only recycled materials in a zero-waste factory and even come in the cutest recyclable and reusable zip lock bag. A good pair of black leggings are non-negotiable and these ones from Luxury Leggings certainly have our stamp of approval.
Lorna Jane Voltage Excel Sports Bra
Unleash your inner animal with Lorna Jane’s Voltage Excel Sports Bra. With a compressive feel, moisture management and cross-back detail, you can bounce between sets or tasks all day with ease. We knew this Australian label had to be included in our round-up as we’ve worn their clothing before and enjoyed them for years to come. The abstract Zebra print can easily be styled up with a blazer, dressed down with a sweatshirt draped over the shoulders or worn under gym wear for maximum support. Pair it with the Voltage Excel Full Length or Voltage Excel Bike Short for a matching set look. You can shop online or in-store at major retailers including John Lewis and Selfridges.

Zozimus – Foundation Bra & Go-To Leggings
New brand Zozimus was created by best friends, mums and fitness instructors Nuala and Jo for women who like to go from “gym to gin.” The Foundation Bra is great because it’s a cross between a bra and a tank making it the perfect mid-length size, which can be hard to find. It has a gorgeous scoop neck, removable pads and a racer back for support in all the right places. Pair it with their matching navy Go-To Leggings and you have the perfect gym-to-day outfit. The best part about an activewear set is there’s minimal thinking involved, meaning you can throw it on and look effortlessly chic without having to think about what to wear. This super versatile set can be worn together or individually so you’ll never get bored!
Chief & Turtle – Foresee Sweatshirt
With the unpredictable English weather, a good quality sweatshirt is essential for layering. This Australian-made sweatshirt by DK Active is effortlessly cool with a classic relaxed sweater fit and long sleeves. It feels super soft on the skin, made from 100% organic cotton – better for you and for the environment. In fact, all of the products hosted on Chief & Turtle’s website are made from some of the most exciting new fabrics in the sustainable market and you can shop by values, country of origin, fabric and certification. It even comes delivered in an invisible bag that completely dissolves in hot water! Their eco-friendly range means you can shop guilt-free while smashing those fitness goals.
Falke Yoga Top Round-neck
German fashion brand Falke is globally known for its luxury hosiery but a couple of years ago, they branched out into activewear using high-quality specialised materials to help regulate body temperature and provide optimum support. You might have spotted the brand before in department stores such as Harrods or their beautiful stand-alone boutiques scattered throughout London. Their Yoga Top is made from a high-quality mix of silk and cotton ensuring a very comfortable fit with a flattering scoop neckline. It’s perfect for low-impact activities with a side mesh structure to ensure it’s breathable and effectively cools the body. It’s available in off-white and grey and is on sale now for £69.50 so make sure you get in quick!
SLO Active – Yulex Zip Front Swimsuit
SLO Active is pretty cool as it powers your workout and the planet. Made in Italy at a small independent, luxury fashion factory, the Clean Lines collection is crafted from Yulex Pure – a plant-based and sustainable alternative to conventional, non-renewable neoprene. The Yulex Zip Front Swimsuit accentuates the body with contoured panels and sewing work to provide a flattering feminine silhouette and avoid any uncomfortable bunching or pinching. The lining and exterior face fabric are made with solution-dyed 100% recycled jersey, which is durable, stretchy and water-resistant. The best part is that with every purchase made, SLO will donate to their ocean charity partner, Earth to Ocean. If you prefer to get wet and wild with your workouts, you need to check out SLO ACTIVE’s range.
Pretty Polly Activewear Long Sleeve T-shirt
Add a pop of colour to your workout with this bright blueberry Activewear Long Sleeve T-shirt by the British brand, Pretty Polly. This affordable seamless top features patterned mesh panels for breathability and trust us when we say the sweat-wicking technology works – we test it during the UK’s 2022 summer heatwave. The fabric is super soft and comfortable, made from recycled yarn that will decompose in approximately three years when properly disposed of in landfills. The biodegradable yarn has a beautiful softness which gives the top a sense of luxury with balance and comfort combined. Pair it with black leggings or the matching full-length or three-quarter leggings and feel the fabric move with you.
Universal Performance Bra Top & Body-contouring Leggings
Universal Performance has released a range of limited-edition yoga sets made with an anti-bacterial solution designed to destroy sweat and the smell of body odour! But you wouldn’t know it, made from recycled polyamide, it’s so soft on the skin it could be mistaken for loungewear. The Seamless Active Low Cut Bra comes with a high ribbed waistband and removable inner bra pads and is completely seamless (goodbye chafing!). Pair it with the Seamless Body Contouring Active Leggings with built-in internal bonding for full support and you’ll have the confidence to push yourself above and beyond during your next workout. Not just great to look at but also great for the environment, the small batch range comes delivered in fully recycled material or eco-friendly, carbon-neutral sugar cane.
TLC Sport Zip Front Cropped Tank
This Zip Front Cropped Tank is giving us major Kardashian vibes at a fraction of the price! TLC has been around since the 80’s serving us looks ever since with every garment designed by real women, for real women. It’s all in the detailing with this smooth-fit paneled crop that acts like a second skin and comes with an adjustable zip front. The sculpting fabric is also 100% sweat endorsed as it’s quick drying while also giving a bespoke stretch. We love how versatile this top is from squeezing in a gym workout to pairing it with a pair of jeans for an afternoon out – the possibilities are endless. All garments are made in TLC’s own factory in Cairo and you can shop material weight, fit, size and silhouette, length, compression strength and for leisure and daywear as well as active wear!
