I love to find clothes that feel like they have been tailored just for me. I am a curvy girl and I often find it hard to find a perfect fit; clothes that fit well, feel comfortable and look good, without compromise. I recently ordered the Starry Night capris from Designed By Sports and they are awesome. Not only are they super soft, they are designed with the female body in mind; they allow you the freedom of movement that activities demand. I often opt for plain black, as it’s flattering and versatile, but I love the subtle detail of the stars on these Starry Night capris.
Who are Designed By Sports?
Designed by Sports was created by sisters, Jude and Helen. Sport was an integral part of their childhood, leading to both sisters taking part in tennis tournaments across the country. Today, sport is still a huge part of their lives, from hockey and running to pilates and yoga.
Frustrated with the high costs of sportswear, that wasn’t always well designed, the sisters decided to create their own brand, Designed By Sports. With design, functionality and cost efficiency at their core their brand focuses on performing well, being comfortable and being obtainable.
When we design our clothing we are very particular about how it performs as well as how it looks. As a sports coach myself I am very fussy on how things feel when I’m exercising. So when designing the ranges we consider them not only from a how they look but also how the fit the purpose of the sport. Are they compressed, do they have enough pockets, are the light enough to run in etc….Jude – Designed By Sports
Starry Night Capris
The capri leggings are made from incredibly soft, but supportive material (27% spandex 73% polyester). The fabric fits around your skin, like a glove, as they are compressed making them ideal for sport, but also light (not tight) so you hardly know you are wearing them! They passed the ‘squat test’ even with my round bottom! Plus, I love the waistband as it supports you and tucks you in. (No yanking them up during workouts… they stay in place.) Plus, I love the zipped pocket that safely stores your phone.
- High waistband for support and comfort
- Rear zip pocket
- Extra thigh pocket for easy quick access
- Removable drawstring tie
- Flat stitched seams to prevent irritation (love this feature as I hate scratchy seams)
- No annoying scratchy labels – care instructions are printed on
- Triangle gusset (No camel toe!)
- Fade resistant
- Quick drying and wicking
- 27% spandex 73% polyester
It’s no wonder that these capris are well designed… the brand works with inspiring sporty women to model the range… real athletes rather than models.
These capris are awesome for sports, but are equally awesome for wearing during day-to-day activities too. I plan to take them with me when I go hiking and sailing as I love their flexibility and comfort. (I will add a photo from my adventures, when I can get away!)
