If You Are A Muscular Momma

Athletic builds are common in the gym yet often times misstyled if you ask me. I am this body type, so I know. My large muscular thighs thoroughly appreciate Lycra (as denim is hard to get along with), however many athletically built FitGirls (including myself) always wear black bottoms. To that, I say “flaunt it, don’t hide it!” Prints are appealing when done right which is why I love this boldly printed capris from Adidas.  Since the base color is black and all the other colors are bold and dark, AOP Capri – Women’s it is just as slimming as all my black leggings. In fact many people stop me in between reps to find out where I got them from.

When it comes to my upper body — the area I love to show off — I go for arm revealing and form-fitting options always. I absolutely adore the Ruched Sweetheart Tank from 15love. It’s the most flattering and figure hugging bra top I’ve seen in a long time. The ruching along the torso draws attention to a small waist and the heart shape top supports my B cup very nicely. I love how I don’t have to wear a sports bra with this! The built-in bra is super supportive and since the straps are adjustable I can create the perfect fit every time I wear it. 

Quick Tips:

Up top think…

Built in bras with adjustable straps are the move.
