Marks & Spencer Good Move Active Wear
[affiliate] So, I’ve spent this morning ordering yoga wear from M&S’s new range, Good Move. I literally am that woman in Sweaty Betty breaking out into the aforementioned sweat at paying £95 for leggings. FOR LEGGINGS! I hate leggings anyway and finding loose active wear for yoga is nigh on impossible and I know this because I’ve been searching all year. I’ve got some great yoga tops from H&M and a couple from other brands but my comfort zone is loose and light. Although some of the items really hit the spot for me (about to show you what I’ve ordered) I literally don’t understand why all the bra tops are cropped. Take them full length because the day won’t come that I’ll be prancing about in a cropped top and leggings. The only thing I want downward is my dog.
This outfit is bang on for me – those loose, quick dry bottoms nip in slightly at the ankles so that the fluidity of the garment is all in the upper areas so that movement is easy. The tapering at the bottom makes legs look streamlined. And they’re £16 HERE. I have a similar pair from M&S from a few years ago, then they disappeared so I think these are the same but back under the Good Move label and I’m so happy to find them! Better yet, they’re size 6 to 24. Non aff is HERE. As yet, they’re only in black but I’d love a khaki pair.
I’ve ordered the top in both pink and white but I’d have it in almost any colour.
I like a fiddly back – it feels more yoga-ish somehow – and yes, we could all just do it in our raggy old t-shirts and tracky bottoms but there is something to be said for dressing the part making you feel more in tune with the process. I really like the fact that this has a t-shirt sleeve – I don’t always like showing my upper arms (especially if my armpits haven’t seen any wax in a while – come on, it’s January – no wax has been near mine til this morning since at least November!), so this loose style with a small sleeve is perfect. And £17.50 feels really very reasonable HERE.
If you like leggings, even I’m (lightly) tempted by these – if I could edit this picture, I’d make the top in the leopardy print and go down below the waist (still with the back twiddles) and the leggings black with a leopardy pocket or something. If Uniqlo can make built in bra long style tops, I’m pretty sure M&S can. Anyway, there is a top in this print (I nearly ordered but it didn’t have t-shirt sleeves) and the leggings are £29.50 HERE. If you love the gym or running, I’m sure they’re great for that. Non affiliate HERE.
Surprisingly, the collection isn’t shown on women of all sizes – unusual for M&S who are good at using models of all shapes and ages. My body doesn’t look like these women and yet I can still see myself wearing the clothes which is a sign, I think, of a nice range.
