When developing our ever-expanding range of activewear and women’s gym tops, we’re consistently asking questions around what you really want, and changing our ranges to try to solve your workout clothing dilemmas.
We found that although there are many women who love a slim-fit gym vest, there are also those of us who like a looser fit over tums and bums. In answer to your requests, we designed the ‘Radiance’ gym vest - a style which shapes the bust in an empire-line cut, and flares out over the waist and hips.
We wanted to introduce you properly to this cleverly-designed gym top, so that you can get to know it a little better.
The Key Features
1. Empire line cut
This clever style fits snugly over the bust to give a highly flattering shape on the torso. The sides cut slightly lower, to give you ample room for movement whilst you move and a more flattering style. The more fitted style over the bust means that you'll feel more secure and 'held in' in the important places whilst you're moving.
2. Baggy, flared shape
Importantly, this top fits loose and long on the torso, meaning that it has extra benefits like being tummy hiding and bum covering! We spoke to many women about what they would like in a gym top and many of you told us that you would like more loose-fit gym wear. In addition to our ever-popular Swagger Tee, we created a sleeveless vest top which also fits loosely over the body, and kicks out in a flared shape over the hips and bum, giving more coverage over waist and tummy.
3. Unconventional 'racerback' shape
The shape of this top resembles a racer-back style, with a twist! The back of the top features two branded Boudavida straps, with additional elastic to provide a little more 'give' and a better shape. You'll also see we've included a stylish keyhole detail on the centre back - perfect for additional breathability and great for keeping you cool.
4. Fast-dry, high performance fabric
The ultimate sports performance fabric, this polyester blend jersey (89% Polyester, 11% Elastane) has been developed to 'wick' moisture efficiently away from the skin so that sweat will evaporate more quickly as you workout, helping you to keep your body temperature down whist your heart-rate is up.
Finally, 5% of every sale will go to a women's sport project that you choose
The 5% that we donate to women’s sport is at the heart of everything we do. We passionately believe that life is about mind, body and soul combined, and that exercise and adopting a healthy lifestyle are essential to living an enriched life. We endeavour to support women from all communities in sport, and encourage and support women to live a healthy life through exercise and wellness.
