Vuori Activewear - My Expectations Vs. Reality
Editor's Note: I ran through dozens of leggings over the past two years. I’d order inexpensive pieces in basic colors so I wasn’t surprised when they fell apart after only 3 months. But now that I’m venturing out to the gym again, it’s time for a serious upgrade. When I started my search I was bombarded by big status brands on social media. But then I found Vuori - sustainable activewear that provides stylish, performance-driven clothes at just-the-right price point.
As always, my primary concern is the cost - hence all those cheap leggings I ended up trashing. Of course, I’d heard of Lululemon and Alo Yoga but I’d never actually visited their sites because I was sure they’d be way beyond my price range.
But I needed a better value. I thought the higher the price the higher the quality, but allegedly there are still some brands making high quality clothes for solid prices. I discovered Vuori’s affordable priced options from a blog.
My final hesitation was Vuori’s environmentally friendly fabrics. I suspected that the sustainable materials might be thick or rough and might not be a flexible, giving, comfy fabric. But Vuori’s so sure I’ll appreciate their stuff, they have an Investment In Happiness product-guarantee. If I don’t love the product, I simply send it back for free.
So, as a creature of habit I ordered 2 pieces - the Rib Studio Legging in Azure and Vuori’s classic Daily Legging in Cinnamon.
When I received an email from Vuori with my tracking information, I got super excited about the arrival of my new luxurious-looking leggings.
Wow. What a delightful surprise to pull on my cinnamon Daily Leggings. The quality is second to none! They breathe - and while the fabric is ultra-soft, it feels like it will last a while. Not to mention, it’s stretchy in all the right places and effortlessly sophisticated.
Vuori offers incredible cuts and styles for both men and women; high-end luxury without Lululemon or Alo Yoga’s status-prices. Designed for next-level performance, Vuori uses durable materials and moisture-wicking, odor-free, UPF 30+ tech. Each piece is functionally built to withstand the toughest workouts then take you to the local cafe for a meet-up with your friends.
Built to endure, reasonably priced, nonchalantly chic, Vuori makes me feel so confident it’s now my one-stop shop. I’ve since picked up their fantastic Mindset Bra and matching Rib Studio Short.
I’m obsessed with Vuori’s inclusive sizing for all bodies. Inspired by Coastal California, their gear comes in vibrant colors from corals to camo and even the Studio Pocket Legging in grapefruit - simply divine.
But it doesn’t stop there, they have an ACTV Club where you can build your strength both mentally and physically. So while I invest in top-tier pieces, I’ll also invest in the future of the planet.
Buttery-soft, high-tech fabrics meet effortless, modern design, it’s bye-bye to ratty old performance wear, I’ll only buy Vuori from now on.
