To be honest with you, I kind of get tired seeing fitness brands only feature size 0-2 women with 6 packs on their instagram accounts. It’s a pretty crappy feeling to never see your body type represented in the media. It can make you feel inferior, almost like you’re just wrong, when you don’t look anything like the girls you’re constantly seeing posted all over social media.
That is why I was absolutely thrilled to see Alala post some curvier body types on their instagram account. I love that they celebrate women of all shapes and sizes just trying to live as healthy and best they can. YES.
When I saw people that had curves just like me on their instagram account, I knew I had to reach out to them about collaborating. I know you’ve seen me collaborate with quite a few fitness brands because I think it’s important to share that fitness and health can look very different from the message we get from society. But I especially enjoy partnering with brands that I feel are on the same page as me on this topic so I’m really excited to be wearing these awesome pieces from Alala today!
Let’s talk about these amazing mesh and smoke print Alala leggings (the captain ankle tight). I’ve gotten compliments at every single workout where I’ve worn them! I think I probably could have sized down from my usual size but they still fit really well and are so comfortable. It’s really important to me that my leggings stay put during high impact workouts and these didn’t move around at all. I also love that they’re high waisted because I like being held in when I’m doing those high impact moves. Now I totally get the hype on Alala leggings and I need more in my life! I haven’t wanted to wear anything else to work out since receiving these. I’ve been pairing it with this mesh drawstring hoodie which is perfectly oversized and so comfortable!
Another pair of Alala leggings I am crushing on are the Heroine Tight because I love the pretty pop of blue and the blocked tight because the metallic bottom are so fun. But the piece I need and want most of all in my life ASAP is the Fuel Jacket. That rose gold and black combination is everything! It comes in a cool metallic silver as well but I think rose gold always wins.
