Comfort has always played a major part of my clothing choices, day in and day out. Which became even more so whilst pregnant and since. But even as a jeans ambassador (is that even a thing?), there come times when even jeans are pushing it and you just need something comfy, but active. Enter Ath-Leisure wear. The Matalan Souluxe range offers that brilliant go-between of ‘I’m being active’ (or am I?) and ‘I’m just relaxing’ – ‘but I’m doing both in comfort’ And I am very much here for that.
Having two boys I feel constantly on the go. If it’s not running around after them or going places for them, it’s the housework and the dog. It’s great to have clothing that caters for all eventualities. Allowing my body to stretch and move, whilst also looking acceptable dashing about in public places – like running errands and the school runs.
Matalan Souluxe sports leggings are perfect. These ones in particular. Not only because they feature two of my favourite shades – black and grey, but more so due to their stretch and high waistband, which is a great addition for keeping my mum-tun concealed. They’re full length, so perfect for this colder weather.
This cross front antibacterial sweat top, in similar marl print to the leggings is so light to wear and the material is lovely on your skin. Not scratchy like some sportswear can be. The thumb holes on the sleeves are a great feature, with the cowl like neck adding texture, without being too fussy. Plus the drawstrings aren’t long enough that they end up in your cuppa or dinner.
Some sports/leisure wear you just can’t wait to get out of, but I’ve happily spent twelve hours of the day in these items and would have gone longer, but the only thing better is – pj’s and of course, bedtime.
Matalan’s range also features many different styles of t-shirts. From long sleeved to vests. Also in an array of colours. All items are available in a small(size 8) up to extra large(size 22).
- Matalan may have provided the leggings and top, but the love and sweat is my own.
