Anyone else remember about 10 years ago, before leggings and activewear were socially acceptable when women used to tease other women for wearing leggings out in public? I distinctly remember the phrase “leggings aren’t pants” being tossed around a lot.

Fast forward a decade and leggings have taken over the world. Even those of us who thought we’d never wear them outside of the gym or our own homes, are wearing them - and there’s no longer any kind of prerequisite that you have to have a top on that covers your bottom!

It’s funny how trends come and go, right? All that said, I am 100% team leggings ARE pants and I am guilty of wearing them nearly every day, along with the rest of my growing activewear collection. Between workouts and momlife, a girl’s gotta be comfy.

I am always looking for new D2C women’s apparel brands to check out, so I was excited when I came across Boldboldy, a new activewear brand that’s dedicated to providing cute, comfortable, functional activewear for all types of bodies.

Today, I’m reviewing Boldbody, giving you all the important details you need to know so that you can decide if you’d like to check this brand out for yourself.

The Story Behind The Brand

Boldbody was founded by Becky Robinson, a woman on a mission to empower other women through celebrating their individuality and loving one another. In her own words:

“I have never been one to blend in. I believe that looking good, feeling good and functionality should not be mutually exclusive. I was tired of leggings that were lacking color, underperforming, not staying up, and, simply put, just ‘the same-old.’ So I set out on a mission to create activewear with the highest quality fabric that withstands tough workouts, wicks sweat and stays put through my busy, active life. Our activewear is made in the USA because I believe that supporting our local economy is more important now than ever before. Feel good, look good, do good - that’s what being a boldbabe is all about.”

I absolutely love brands that have such a strong, positive message, and Boldbody certainly fits the bill. They are committed to empowering women and allowing them to live life out loud and feel good in their own skin, and that’s a sentiment that all of us women need more of in our lives. Less insecurity and judgment, more confidence, and community.

The Line: What Activewear Apparel Do They Offer?

One thing that I love about Boldbody is how simple they keep it. They are most well-known for their activewear sets (matching leggings and sports bras). Their colors are bright, eye-catching, and made to stand out. 

They offer prints or solids and they are always releasing new colors and patterns to choose from. In addition to their leggings and sports bras, they also offer a line of women’s tops, sweatshirts, swimwear, and they even have some men’s “beach to bar shorts,” a fun line of men’s trunks that include fun patterns and bright colors.

Boldbody Leggings Review

So by now, we know that not all leggings are created equally. There’s a huge disparity between the great leggings that we can rock for almost any activity or occasion and the ones that can only be worn around the house. Sure, you can grab a pair of leggings for $20-$30, but more often than not, the quality, fit, and durability will be seriously lacking. If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the last couple of years it’s that investing in high-quality leggings is absolutely worth it.

Boldbody leggings are high-quality, flattering, and built to last through countless workouts, nights out with your girls, and playdates with the kids. What more could you ask for?

Take, for example, their BB Classic Leggings, which are made from their exclusive soft lycra fabric. They are performance-driven, sweat-wicking, and made from a premium blend of spandex and polyester for a flattering, comfortable fit no matter what your body type.

All their leggings include their signature BB Exclusive ultra-high waist which provides a smooth, non-slip feel for all-day comfort and tummy flattering. They are built to last, meaning you can wear these all day every day and wash as many times as you wish and they will still maintain their shape, fit, and high-quality, bright colors.

Their leggings come in sizes XS to XL for their classic leggings and sizes XS-6XL in their Icon-ic Leggings, which is amazing as they cater to women of all shapes and sizes. Their leggings run true to size, but if you have any questions regarding finding the right size, you can reach out to their team via their convenient chat window found on boldbodyapparel.com!

Boldbody Sports Bra Reviews

The Boldbody sports bras are quintessential workout bras that never go out of style or functionality. They are designed for performance and quality hold with their racerback style. They are unpadded, double-lined, and never see-through. They feature their 8-way stretch and sweat-wicking material that helps keep you cool and comfortable all day or all workout long.

Their sports bras come in a variety of bright, bold colors and patterns and each one has a matching pair of leggings if you want to make it an outfit, which I love. Reviewers boast about the quality of the fit, stating it’s neither too tight and restrictive nor is it too loose and unsupportive. It’s clear that Boldbody spent a great deal of time working to perfect this design so that women of all shapes and sizes can get the coverage they want and need.

Their sizing ranges from XS-XL and they recommend that women who are between sizes choose a size up to ensure the most comfortable fit.

Reasons to Love Boldbody

There are a lot of activewear options out there, some good and some not so good - and trust me, I’ve tried both ends of the spectrum. After doing my research and testing the apparel out for myself, I can tell you that Boldbody is a 100% legitimate women’s activewear brand that’s producing high-quality clothing that supports and empowers women.

  • Their clothing is made in the USA
  • They custom design their styles and keep their line small - quality over quantity
  • Bold, bright colors that are made to stand out
  • They empower women to be themselves
  • All pieces are designed to be comfortable, supportive, flattering, and functional
  • Bras and leggings can be paired together as a set
  • The high waist on the leggings is amazing - the perfect balance between holding you in and remaining comfortable

Should You Try Boldbody? Is it a good fit?

If you’re looking for a fun, trendy way to look great in the gym, out with your friends, or at the playground with your kiddos while remaining comfortable, then Boldbody is 100% worth checking out. They have some of the best quality athletic wear I have seen recently.

Yes, they are a little pricey but trust me, it’s worth it. Especially since the articles are made in the US and are constructed from the highest quality fabrics available - they won’t shrink, fade, or wear, which means you’ll get a ton of bang for your buck.

I am for sure planning to get more of their pieces. There’s nothing more motivating to hit the gym in the morning than knowing you have a cute workout outfit waiting for you!
