Liquido began In 2001 as a small family shop in the Brás neighborhood in São Paulo, Brazil. Their intention was to produce and sell high quality fitness clothing and swimwear at affordable prices for their customers. The name Liquido was chosen because, just as water is essential to life, the founders of Liquido believe good clothing is a bare necessity that all people deserve.
Through word of mouth and social media, their reputation soon grew and the increasing popularity allowed them to open several stores open throughout São Paulo. As demand continued to grow, the company needed to expand and invited other entrepreneurs to join the Liquido brand. The company now has over 80 stores throughout Brazil and is sold on the world wide web.
Liquido is known for designing limited edition prints and activewear that can seamlessly transition from studio to street.
Since Liquido’s inception, yogi and entrepreneur, Renata Facchini, has brought the brand to Australia and the United States. Liquido now offers everything from yoga pants to high-impact sports bras, and distributes worldwide. The brand is coveted by those in both the fitness and fashion industries.
Liquido’s goal is simple: to create high quality, bold activewear that will foster confident and strong women!
Liquido Active Review: Wild Cat Yoga Leggings and Dare to Be Bold Sports Bra
I received an outfit from Liquido Active to review on the blog! All I can say is it’s 100% RAWR! Liquido hand-picked an outfit to make me look and feel fierce! I received their Wild Cat printed leggings in ankle length. They also sent me a Dare to Be Bold sports bra that I am 100% obsessed with. I was ready to prowl my way around the gym.
Dare to Be Sports Bra Review
This is my first time trying out a Liquido sports bra. I was stoked about the high neck which is on trend for 2017 and 2018. The fabric is black and does not bleed. The bra runs small so I recommend sizing up in their bras and tops. The back of the bra has a strappy design that is very attractive. The sports bra is not lined but very lightweight, making it great for sweaty activities and including swimming.
Wildcat Printed Leggings Review
#1 Size: Per Liquido’s size chart, I sized up. I wear a 6 in lululemon and chose a MEDIUM in Liquido Active bottoms and top. The medium fit me great around the legs and the waistband. Depending on Liquido’s fabric, I have experienced slippage. Their prints fit me very well, while their solids feel a little looser. Ultimately, I recommend sizing up in Liquido Active.
#2 Style: Liquido makes leggings (7/8 and extra-long length), shorts, bell bottoms, extra long leggings, tanks, tops, bras and some outerwear. They also have a men’s activewear line.
#3 Inseam: The inseam on my Wildcat leggings are 25″. The leg opening sat just above my ankle. If you love to give you ankles some room to breathe, Liquido definitely fits the bill. Liquido offers leggings in both the regular and extra-long length.
#4 Rise: The leggings come with a standard rise that can be worn over my navel. I am 5’5″ for reference.
#5 Waistband: The tall 2.5″ waistband sits at my naval. The waistband is not made with elastic.
- Fabric Content: Active LYCRA® Fiber Technology (90% NYLON/10% Spandex)
- Fabric Feel: The fabric feels smooth and soft.
- Fabric Performance:
- The fabric quick drying and moisture wicking.
- The fabric has 4-Way Stretch and allows it to contour against the body.
- The fabric is very stretchy so you may need to size up.
- I would consider the fabric pill and abrasion resistant.
- Opacity: The Wildcat leggings are white backed, however they are 100% opaque (not see-through)!
- Fabric Features:
- Care and product tags are sewn inside the waistband of the pants.
- No visible logos
- No pockets
#7 When to Wear: Liquido leggings are perfect for all types of sports and activities. I love wearing them especially to yoga and casually around town.
#8 Cost: Liquido’s Wildcat leggings cost $84. They offer a teacher discount (25% off regular priced merchandise) and a sales section.
#9 Gusset: Liquido bottoms do not come with a gusset. There is a + shaped seam with overlocked stitching in the location where the gusset should be.
#10 Stitch Seam: Liquido leggings are constructed with a plain/overlock stitch seam throughout the waistband and inseam of the pant.
#11 UPF Protection: All liquido products have 50+ UPF protection.
#12 Made in Brazil. All of their items are handmade and sweatshop free!

Should I Buy Liquido Active?
You should definitely buy Liquido! I love how vibrant the colors remain even after 10 washes!
The only downfall I have experienced with Liquido is that different fabrics and patterns have different textures depending on how they are manufactured. I’ve experienced some printed leggings (such as the and butterfly prints) to become very stuff after a few washes.Luckily they always have limited edition prints that sell out quickly. They seem to have improved their printed process with more recent collections, so that may not be a concern any longer.
