The blog world is obsessing over Pink Soda Sport, the latest active lifestyle collection for women who want to look great whilst working out. I've spotted them everywhere, you can't flick through an instagram feed without spying Pink Soda Sport. The brand is available to buy at JD Sports and when they offered me the chance to try out the collection of course I was excited, just look at it, it's all beautiful! Animal print designs, bold pinks and turquoise accent colours and an eye-catching geometric heart logo, what's not to love? But the true test of good active wear is how comfortable it is to exercise in and how well it lasts...
My favourite item has to be these grey-to-pink ombre leopard print leggings and matching sports bra. They're both stretchy, breathable and comfortable. I'd happily wear these leggings out and about during the day too with a long black top and leather jacket. You can head straight to the gym! But I'm more of a 'yoga at home' sort of person, and I'll certainly go for a long walk/hike in these leggings.
The zip up hoody and slim fit jogging pants are just as comfortable, lined with a cosy soft fleece. I love the pink trim around the hood. Perfect for mooching around the house in, there's not much chance I'll be getting anything done in these other than watching Netflix on the sofa. I'll happily downsize my old lounge wear now I have these to relax in.
These crackle print leggings with a wide turquoise band around the waist are amazing too. They come with a handy hidden zip just above your bum for holding a key when you're out running. I ordered everything in my usual UK 10 and found it all to be true to size, fitting snugly without being too tight. The hoody and sweatshirt were quite loose fitting but that's how I like to wear my lounge wear, if you prefer things a tighter fit, opt for a size down in those items. I'm impressed with the quality and I'm hoping this active wear will wash well and last. I've always been told to wash your gym wear on a low heat and hang out to air dry. I'll be following those rules and I'll let you know how I get on!
The best part is this collection is so affordable. I've seen lots of pretty sports wear, now more than ever before brands are designing functional and fashionable active wear with women in mind but it's usually so expensive! Pink Soda Sport sport bras start from £16 and the leggings are £28.
