10 sessions in for Pilates class, hooray! I can feel the effects already – not getting tired easily, less backaches, and I feel stronger. I haven’t experienced any problems as I did before when I was going to a regular gym. Ten sessions in and one thought leveled up: if you can perform, all the more to japorm! (wise words from Jackie Go!) And the more I can japorm with the discovery of The Shape Shop.
Patti Manuel Go has always been on the lookout for flattering, stylish and affordable active wear since she likes working out. Choices in the metro has always been futile, so she decided to come up with a fitness fashion line that would enhance and flatter different body types. Together with business partner Pinky Yee, their goal is to produce an active wear line that is both purposefully designed and aesthetically pleasing. With the addition of Ella Laxa Pangilinan, the brand now reaches out to younger customers who are fashion forward and body conscious. Sola by The Shape Shop offers innovative, flattering, comfortable and affordable workout clothes for fitness junkies. This collaboration is now available at Aura Athletica in PowerPlant Mall.
Some may argue that you don’t need any special clothes to work out. Personally, I think wearing something nice during a workout makes you feel good about yourself already, thus, allowing you to perform better! Using clothes specifically for active workouts is not only comfortable, it is also hygienic! You want to sweat, but you don’t want to smell like sweat, right?! Here’s what I liked about The Shape Shop’s products:
- two words: bra pads!
Most of their tops have removable pads, so you don’t need to wear a sports bra anymore. You can also add more pads to your liking.
- Pieces are thoughtfully stylish
Pockets, cut-outs, straps, nets… small details that make an impact. These leggings can take you from the gym to an errand in the mall! All of their leggings are high-waisted for extra coverage and support.
- It is a local brand!
While the fabric is sourced internationally, The Shape Shop is thoughtfully designed and crafted in the Philippines!
- It won’t hurt your budget.
The cut, material and design does look posh, but the prices are very reasonable.
I can’t wait to see more designs! I heard they will have long-sleeved tops and jackets available soon. Drop by Aura Athletica to see all of their collection!
