Straits Apparel, born and bred in Gibraltar is an up and coming sportswear brand who hope to create sportswear fit for everyone.
Im excited to be an ambassador for this brand because its not often you get to work with people with so much energy and zest like its owner:Christina. She has so many great ideas for the brand and I can’t wait to watch it grow.
Fun fact: each set is named or inspired by local history: Keys, Defence, Castle sets are to name a few.
CASTLE SET – PISTACHIO
This set is my favourite one to date, the cut on the leggings is really high and figure hugging and everything is held in place tightly (important) even though the material isn’t ‘compression.’ – basically, te aguanta la barriga guys que es lo que cuenta.
The bra is really comfortable and also holds everything in place wonderfully. It has removable padding but i like leaving them in because it makes them twins look a bit nicer *hides face*
I usually i wear size 8-10/S-M on top (bra size: 36DD) and a size 8/S on bottom – these are both size S.
As you can see from the pictures, the colour is truly gorgeous – this one is called Pistachio but it also comes in 3x other colours: Azur, Black & Mauve. (The azur one is also so beaut and definitely have my eyes on that one next).
The highlight of this set for me is the back pocket which is big enough to hold your phone – i went as far as to test this set on a run with my phone in the back pocket and I give it a 10/10!
FORTRESS SET – SAND
This set is lovely, the cut on the leggings is a little bit lower which made it a bit more uncomfortable for me (i like them super high) but the material is far tighter and has more of a compression feel. So much so, that i had to upsize on this one and get a size M instead.
The bra is comfortable but doesn’t have a strong hold, i would say that its perfect for weight training – rather than high intensity workouts.
On both the bra and leggings I’m wearing a size M.
The colour is really nice, however I much prefer darker colours for training because i always stain all my lighter colour leggings, so if you’re like me… buy a darker colour in this range. These come in Sand, Mocha and Graphite colours.
