Have you guys heard of Ellie? It is a online workout gear company. Their focus is high quality fashionable workout gear. They put out a new collection every month. And you can buy individual pieces or become a Fit Fashionista Club member (which gets you 2 pieces each month for $49.95). Ellie gave me the opportunity to check out some of their workout gear. I was able to choose a top and bottom to review.
First of all, the top. I chose the Truth or Dare Carbon tank from the Love, Ellie collection. I love this tank. The fabric is soft, stretchy and lightweight. It has a nice design feature on the sides and neckline, so it’s not just a boring grey tank. It is perfect for body pump as well as running. It does have a shelf bra, but it is not very supportive, so I always wear a sports bra underneath it.
And then I got a pair of capris to check out.
Now, as you know, I will always give my 100% honest opinion to you all about every product I check out.
This pair of capris – The Little Black Carpi from the Little Black Collection – is actually my 3rd pair that they sent me.
My first pair, was a medium size of the heartbreaker carpi. And they were totally see through –> not acceptable! So, I contacted the company and they said they hadn’t heard of people having that problem and they offered to send me a different pant. So, I chose the Kiss Me Capri –> and they were better, but still a little see through. . . and have a higher waist than I prefer. So, again, I contacted the company, and they offered to send me yet another pair to check out and told me again that they haven’t had this problem. So, I put a shout out to other friends of mine that use Ellie to see if they have ever had this problem, and yes, they have. . BUT! they told me that the problem isn’t with the pants, it’s the sizing. I just needed to order a larger size because the smaller size was stretching too much and making them seem see through. ..
So, I got a size large of the little black capri –> and PERFECTION. Not see through, fits awesomely. And I wear them all. the. time. As leggings, working out, hanging around the house, getting a pedicure, etc. They sit right above my hips and stay put while working out, teaching body pump and running. The fabric is soft and comfy.
So, despite all the problems that I did have, I would still recommend Ellie to anyone who is looking for some higher quality workout clothes. And if something doesn’t work out –> I can’t say enough good things about the customer service I received. If you are interested in checking Ellie out, I would love for you to use my affiliate link. <—Thanks for supporting Running4Cupcakes.
And all my capri heartache is going to work out (<—haha) good for you guys, because Ellie has offered to let me do a giveaway for the medium size Kiss Me Capri! They have the super soft, comfy fabric that is perfect for working out or just hanging around. They have a cute pink waistband . . . which of course, I love!
