The lovely folks over at Boody Wear SA sent me this fab outfit the week before my overseas trip, so I thought I would put it to the test before I shared my thoughts with all of you!
Boody Wear is an Australian brand that is eco-friendly and made of Bamboo. It was brought to South Africa in 2015 and the range has expanded since then. I was very intrigued about the Bamboo material and how it would feel on my body.
I can report, it is super soft and super comfortable! I had to do a squat test of course, and it passed!
I decided to pack the sports bra, vest and leggings for my trip, even though I was going to be in the snow. I didn’t know if I would be warm enough in any leggings, but since I’m so used to leggings, I didn’t pack anything thicker, my legs just don’t like it!
I wore other leggings and then I wore these leggings. Honestly, my legs were SO much warmer on the days where I wore the Boody leggings, and surprisingly, those were the coldest days. I didn’t even pack them thinking they would have anything to do with the warmth, but it was such a pleasant surprise! I may have worn them a few days in a row…
The sports bra is more of a comfort crop that I would use for yoga, I wouldn’t do walking or high impact exercise in it because it doesn’t strap those suckers down! But it really is comfortable, to the point that I actually wore it back on my long haul flights and I hardly even noticed I was wearing it.
The vest is super light, soft and easy to wear. It falls nicely when its on. You know what I mean, when it fits perfectly and doesn’t gather here or there, making you feel uncomfortable or that you look a few kgs heavier because it’s giving you muffin top (insert eye roll here).
All in all I was really surprised at the quality of the products, and also the warmth they gave me. I’m pretty sure it would work with your body to cool it down in warm climates and keep it warm in cold climates.
It’s a thumbs up from me!
