Here’s the lowdown on the activewear brands you need to know about. As recently gyms have seen girls stepping up the game with new fitness gear, so it’s time to mix it up.

Yes, you read correctly. It’s time to step out of your comfort zone and get some new funky leggings in your life. These brands all push the message that sportswear can be feminine while still being practical, and that girls should be allowed to look good while working out. The brands below are full of the latest activewear attire – bringing sass to your gym class!


Gibson Girl

Only a year in development, Gibson Girl has already provided high performing, fashion forward activewear. The team has worked tirelessly, redesigning over and over to deliver to us a perfectly flattering fit. That is proportioned, ergonomically constructed pieces in order to generate the most amazing lines imaginable. So many of us are put off working out because of the way we look, but Gibson Girl activewear has been tried and tested on every body type and says that tummies look flatter, bottoms seem to lift and waists appear to lose an inch or so. You can’t say no to that!



Wetsuits are generally all fairly similar – dull, unflattering and very ‘samey’. Until now. Welcome to Glidesoul! This brand offers a whole new concept to swimwear, combining seasonal trends, bright colours and flattering fits. Body confidence is a huge factor when it comes to swimming costumes and so on, but the high quality materials and flattering fits of the Glidesoul range mean girls can feel completely body self-assured once again. Spring/Summer 16 ladies everywhere will be heading to the shores, pools, fitness studios and lakes up and down the country all wearing the latest must have. Have you got yours yet?



Despite Bodyism being around for a while now, we still see it as an up and coming brand that’s becoming more and more exciting. Why? Because of the amount of passion and thought that is put into the assembly of the products, which is shown in the outcome of the amazing activewear. The philosophy is that “men and women from all walks of life should realise their physical and mental potential”. The line is modern and stylish but still has all the qualities you expect from exercise kit.



Focused around confidence, comfort and femininity, K-Deer is a brand exploding with creativity. All of its patterns are unique and rare. The activewear, created in New York, gives women a chance to feel more feminine during exercise while wearing bold statement items.
