Sweatstyle Turns The Gym Into a Runway
Athleisure fans, take note: shopping for workout gear just got really, really easy.
Sweatstyle, a new curated shopping service that specializes in chic workout gear, aims to please yogis, runners, and cardio queens alike with their diverse range of fitness separates, which they'll ship to you seasonally.
Here's how it works: you fill out their intuitive survey, covering the types of workouts you love, your top extra-curricular activies, and your personal style, from fit preferences to color likes and dislikes. After covering the waterfront, Sweatstyle stylists put together an edit of suggested pieces from their arsenal of brands, which range from well-known labels like Lole to super indies like Vimmia.
Every three months, a treasure trove of sports bras, leggings, tanks and more will show up at your door for a fee of $20, which can be put toward your purchases — so basically you get a personal shopper for $20, which is by far the best deal we've ever heard of. We can't think of a better motivation to stick with our barre/spinning/Crossfit regime than the promise of new, pretty things to sport while we get all sporty (and sweaty).
Another benefit? Since the array of brands is pretty wide, you can kind of guarantee that you won't wind up spinning next to someone wearing the exact same tank/leggings combo (cough Lululemon cough).
A skim through Sweatstyle's Instagram is enough to get anyone excited about working out: the array of super-fun patterns and color tops is so very chic, and the editorial vibe of the selections is so, so enticing. The feature we love the most is the way you can customize each shipment. So, say you're drowining in sports bras but can't find a damn supportive tank top for yoga — let their shoppers seek out the best options and then try them all on in the comfort of your own home.
You have five days to try on and return, and you pay for what you keep. The rest goes back to them in the pre-labeled shipping bag that comes with your package, so returns are literally the easiest ever. The hardest part of the whole thing? Waiting three months for your next shipment.
