A few weeks ago I contacted Lucy Activewear in regards to helping out with the Team FIGHT raffle. Not only did they offer to help (so stay tuned for the next raffle!) but Kristy at Lucy Activewear said she wanted to send me a pair of Lucy Impact Knee pants to try out. She said they were the most comfortable pants she’s ever worn.
Well I beg to differ.
Because they deserve a title much more awesome than “most comfortable pants ever”. I instead, would like to call these the “most butt flattering while still maintaining performance quality” pants I’ve ever worn. Yes, they are super comfortable. But did I mention, they make my butt look fantastic?
Regardless of vain gluteal aesthetics, these pants performed incredibly well. I’m often one to err on the side of caution when it comes to my workout wear, and buy from a company that I know will perform well. Sugoi, Nike, Under Armour, Brooks, etc. All companies that you KNOW have done their research and know what athletes need in active wear. So I was skeptical about the performance of the
butt pants impact knee pant from a company I had just recently heard of.
The pants have put in 3 hours on the elliptical, a 30 minute run (foot won’t allow more) and a couple of days at school/working in the lab. (in other words, they have been washed a lot already, and still look brand new). Sweat wicking performance was great, and the most important thing for me…they stayed put. Maybe it’s the crazy childbearing hips, but I tend to have this problem with my pants and shorts riding up or sliding down. But not once did I have to yank the impact pants back up while performing the death grip on the elliptical with my other hand(I’m always afraid I’m going to sling shot myself off of it…which is essentially probably more embarassing as having a saggy workout pants butt).
85% polyester;15% spandex makes these pants thicker than your run of the mill running tights, (which I really appreciate, holds things in place!), but mesh insets at the hip and calf keep you cool. The pants also have really cute reflective detailing, and a zippered pocket at the back waistband. I’m not exactly sure what you are supposed to put in that pocket, but for what it’s worth, I managed to fit a GU and a car key in there.
Lucy activewear offers clothing for every active woman, from yoga, running, basic gym wear, even casual “explore/travel” clothing. Their clothes are performance designed, but incredibly feminine and flattering. I for one, have to wear workout clothes almost everyday (the benefits of being an exercise sports science major at school!), so it’s nice to be able to find clothes that make me feel more like a hot tamale than a tom boy.
Speaking of which, I’m totally putting the Karma Racerback on my birthday wish list , yeow yeow, that shirt is hot! (next month I turn the big 2-8, in case anyone was wondering what to get me! Juuuust kidding. But it’s really a shame Rich doesn’t read my blog, haha!)
But I digress. Ladies, check out http://www.lucy.com/
Happy running, you hot tamales 🙂
