When high fashion designers like Mary Katrantzou collaborates with a sports brand and a luxury e-tailer launches a section on their website exclusively for really expensive sportswear (that we constantly spend half our paycheques on), you know your workout gear will never go back to its boring ole’ black tights basics. We have no problem rockin’ yoga tights on the regular in Singapore either of course, and we’re thrilled that Lululemon Athletica’s finally opening a standalone store in ION Orchard this Sunday, 14 Dec after operating out of two showrooms in Singapore for several years.
If you’re planning on treating yourself to some wicked workout gear, here are our top picks we recommend you purchase. Trust us, these will become staples in your wardrobe, on, and off the gym floor.
In The Flow Crop II
Whenever we slip these cropped tights on, we feel like there’s a divine being in our presence that magically lifts our derriere to levels the Kardashians would envy. Suddenly, all those excruciating kettle bell squats at the gym are well worth it.
Ta Ta Tamer II
Unlike your friends who can live life wearing tiny little bralettes without underwire, your girls need more support. Lululemon’s Ta Ta Tamer, a sports bra that comes in bra sizes and not in generic smalls, mediums and larges, will easily be a staple in your workout wardrobe. It’s great for more high impact activities like cross fit and hiking.
This bra is not the most sensible for the kind of workouts that our editor puts herself through, but it is this very bra that tops her lust list when the store opens. While it may give the minimal support when you’re rocking out some burpees, it’ll be a great piece to wear with a high waisted skirt and sneakers, wouldn’t it?
Seamlessly Covered Tank
Don’t let your girls spill out of your top while you’re trying to do a headstand; this tank makes sure all your bits are kept in place so the only thing you’re concerned about is your posture. Have we mentioned how flattering the cut is?
Lululemon Athletica, ION Orchard, 2 Orchard Turn, #B1-11 Singapore, 238801
