THERE’S nothing worse in life than getting sweaty, sticky and smelly while working out. Well… that might be a slight exaggeration, but here at Pillow we’ve been searching far and wide for a solution to our exercise woes.
And a solution we have found in the shape of Bamboo Clothing, who very kindly gave us some kit to try out.
Bamboo specialise in performance clothing and base layers made from ingenious bamboo fibres. In their own words, bamboo is not only better for you, but it’s also better for the environment.
Bamboo fibres have moisture wicking properties, are highly breathable in hot weather and keep you warmer when it’s cold: all making it the ideal fabric for work out gear. Bamboo is also 100% biodegradable, and is the fastest growing plant in the world, so it’s planet friendly too.
So, the time came to don our new leggings and hit the gym…
And we weren’t disappointed. Bamboo’s clothes are super soft and stretchy, keeping us comfy and cool. The leggings are extra long in the leg, making them super flattering. (I am 5’9 and they were plenty long enough!) Bamboo’s signature base layer also didn’t let us down, locking in enough heat to battle the bitter February wind as we headed outside.
After a long, sweaty session (ok, maybe not long) we still smelled fresh as a daisy thanks to the ingenious antibacterial nature of bamboo fabric. It sounds bizarre, but trust us- you’ll notice the difference compared to your regular cotton-lycra gym tops.
Bamboo Clothing most definitely has the Pillow Mag seal of approval. It’s comfy, it’s unfussy and it’s anti-smelly- what more could you want?
With gym wear this perfect, there are no excuses left for skipping that spin session…
