Let's Get Physical - SS15 Sportswear from Primark

Since the start of Winter, my work out regime has mostly been indoors. I managed to pick up a second hand exercise bike for next to nothing, and I'd drag myself from duvet to bike seat whilst still in pre-tea-zombie mode. Whilst this was great for the cooler months, I live near a massive heath and have been keen to get back to running again with fresh air and pretty views. However as I've got so used to working out in my pyjamas, I really needed to re-evaluate my sportswear collection.

I've never been one to spend lots of money on sportswear, as I'd much rather invest in the more fun side of fashion. However Primark have hit the nail on the head with their SS15 sportswear range, with combines affordability, style and designs made to be pushed to the limit. And the best thing? The price ranges between just £3.50 to £14!

Whilst the active wear doesn't come in a specific plus size range, it does go up to a very stretchy size 20 so would fit larger, especially in the tops. (On a side note, if you're very busty it can be worth having a peek in the men's active wear department. I managed to pick up an incredibly lightweight, waterproof wind breaker for £7 a few seasons ago which has served me well whilst running in the rain.)

The current collection features a really pretty Spring colour palette, with pastel pinks and ice-blues providing the perfect antidote for grey skies. The fabric is designed to be quick drying, with some items having reflective panels and mesh detailing in addition to hidden pockets for phones, ipods and keys.

It's such a pretty collection, and perfect whether you want to hit the gym, practice yoga or go for a run. The range will also be updated every few weeks, and coordinates with bags, trainers and socks for a full collection.

It's pretty enough to have convinced me to shed my pjs and get my running back on track and I can't wait to rock it as I start my 5k training again.

Until next time,

  1. Ooooh these look really great! I hate spending money on work out gear but realise that I spend as much time in it as I do pretty dresses so maybe I ought to buy more! I'll definitely go check these out though - thanks for recommending!
