Hello again Warriors! I am continually asked where I get my workout clothing and why. Since I recently bought outside of my normal brand I wanted to give a product review on a few items I bought versus the Savage Barbell brand I continually wear daily.
My first purchase was from Ryderwear. I will say that their shoes are my favorite leg day shoe, their clothing for women... a total bust. Not only is the fabric incredibly sheer, which a lot of people are uncomfortable with, but the seriously high waist was annoying. I know you ladies LOVE that high waisted sh*t, but it really isn't flattering or good for the system. You lose some beautiful abdomen lines when we wear those high waisted shorts and leggings. The material was comfortable and moveable, this was nice. The "shadowing" on the shorts were very distracting and unflattering. My booty is not small enough to keep the shorts where they should have "enhanced" the look of how large my rear-end is. I don't need help with this. Girls who are in the beginning of their fitness journey looking for that full booty look are looking for leggings like this. Not fit girls. My sports bra was pretty large for a medium and long. Compared to my Savage bras this felt like a circus tent. My partner made a great observation that Ryderwear clothing makes even the most beautiful and fit of ladies look like a 12 year old, pre-pubescent child.
My second purchase was from Feed Me Fight Me. I love donuts and found a wonderful red outfit that matched perfectly with my donut sprinkle shoes from No Bull. When the outfit arrived I was ecstatic! Upon putting on the outfit I was highly disappointed once again. As the material is not made for ladies who have put in that booty work. Immediately my tattoos began to show through on my shins! Then I turn around to reveal my pretty bare booty and thong through my pants. (The picture is a little dark, my partner confirmed being able to see completely through the leggings in our KITCHEN). The material was once again incredibly comfortable. I am sure I would have loved to workout in them, but there is simply no way I am squatting in sheer pants. The bra fit like a glove and I felt very secure. Being a full D cup it can be difficult to find bras that fit properly, offer enough support and hold all of me in.
Now the brand I have gone with for the last few years is Savage Barbell. I love them so much they made me a sponsored affiliate. I have bought their clothing for the last three years. I have only ever had to replace one pair of leggings due to wearing them 13 hours a day, 5 days a week for nearly 2.5 years before that wear happened. They finally just worn thin in the material and needed to be replaced. The stitching was still fully intact, no holes anywhere. Just normal stretching over time and wear on the material. Savage offers great support in both their bras and their leggings/shorts. While I am still not a super fan of anything high waisted, their shorts and leggings roll over easily to allow me to keep my low waisted bottoms. Savage prices are much more reasonable as well. Pricing leggings at roughly $50 per pair versus $80 per pair from most other companies. Better quality for a better price.
The verdict, I will more than likely try another brand someday, however Savage will always be my go to and highly recommend workout clothing brand.
