Bellum Active’s latest offering has finally arrived and naturally, I ordered a pair to try them out. Known for their animal inspired patterns and funky colours, Bellum’s Viper X leggings and Viper X top are a welcome addition to my growing collection of Bellum’s active range. The soft, flexible fabric and the thoughtfully added zip pocket and breathable mesh is why this range has become one of my favourite workout clothing brands.
True to Bellum Active’s style, the Viper X leggings and top are funky and fashionable. Not only are they fun to wear, they are thoughtfully designed; they are made with fabric that wicks the sweat away, as well as stretchy mesh, that allows your skin to breathe. This stretchy material allows for ease of movement, without the need to yank up your trousers. (I’ve had this with other brands…and it’s hard to do whilst running without looking like you’re desperate for the loo!) The material is also thick enough that it passes Bellum’s ‘squat test’. This is especially useful for ladies that have peachy bums that are on the larger side, like mine! When I squat, you won’t see the ‘full moon’ through these leggings!
“Piling resistant technical fabric, chlorine resistant and has excellent UV protection. The fabric is soft to touch with dynamic 2-way stretch and is quick-drying. The fabric washes and wears well and is the perfect choice for all workouts.” Bellum Active
The Viper X top feels silky and comfy and i love the racerback style. It is great for low-impact workouts, such as yoga or walking. However, for larger chested ladies, like myself, the Viper X top doesn’t offer enough support for high impact sports, despite the bra insert. Honestly, I tried it out and my boobs were wild. I then wore it to a hot yoga class and found the top to be ideal for this kind of activity. The bra insert held my boobs in place during this less bouncy, active class. The top itself felt silky and smooth and was stretchy and flexible, perfect for yoga.
