I’ve been eyeing Arthletic Wear for a while. They’re a Serbian based company run and owned by twin yogis and artists Milena & Jelena Aleksic. Arthletic Wear was funded through crowd sourcing via Kickstarter. Their style can be described as feminine yet whimsical! My favorite leggings are the Kimono, Blue Panda and Ice cream and donuts leggings!

I have been reviewing products for years. I like to inform my readers about yoga products, especially because I wear yoga clothes almost 90% of the time! Every yoga brand is different and has their own sizing and fit standards. Before you spend hundreds of dollars on a outfit that is coming to you from across the world, you want to make sure it’s going to fit. So glad we have the internet to help us with decision making nowadays. 🙂
Arthletic Wear just released their new line for 2016 and I am obsessed!!! Below are some of my favorite pieces.
I received the opportunity to review their Kimono leggings and Ariel top.The package was shipped on May 13th and arrived on May 23rd (10 days). Not bad for international shipping! Below is a slideshow of my unraveling and try-ons! I am a size 8 in lululemon tops and size 6 in bottoms. I requested size LARGE in both Arthletic top and bottoms.
- Beautiful prints: Each print is hand drawn and the colors are VIBRANT! The designs look amazing in person and in photos.
- Great quality fabric: The fabric is opaque and soft to the touch. The fabric fits like a second skin. The design is also excellent. There are flat seams to prevent chafing and the pants fit at mid-waist (hides muffin top). The weight of the pants are VERY LIGHT.
- Great fit: Once you determine your size, the fit is great! The bow in the back is great for aesthetics but will present a problem with supine or savasana poses. I am 5’5″ and the leggings were long enough to be worn over my heels with the hem directly sitting under the arch of my foot. The waistline is high enough for me to not worry about crack attack!
- No pilling! The fabric is smooth and wears like a second skin.
- Excellent customer rewards program: Earn points for completing social media tasks and get 1 point for every $1 spent.
- Sizing is off (big time): I wear a size 6 in lululemon and decided to size up to a L in bottoms. I fluctuate between sizes and brands all the time. This is not a big deal to me but it could be if it’s your first time buying size and going by their size chart. I wear a size 8 in lululemon bras & tops and ordered a large as well. After trying on the top in a large, I’ve determined a medium would’ve been a much better fit. I am also a 36B for size reference if that helps. As for the leggings, I bought a size medium pair of Arthletic pants off eBay and they fit SO MUCH BETTER! So if you’re a size 6 in bottoms and 8 in lululemon tops, DEFINITELY go for MEDIUM in Arthletic. The large was just too loose in some areas (especially waist and knees). The medium fit perfectly and looks a-ma-zang!
- No Bra Cups: There are no openings for bra cups for the Ariel top. I do feel a bit exposed and “nipply.” However if you really want to create openings for bra cups, it’s an easy DIY fix.
- The bra is a bit flimsy. For $50 a pop, I’d want more functionality than just a pretty design. I felt that the construction lacked the quality that was given to the pants.
- No Gusset!
