I first found FlexxFit about 2 years ago now. I was drawn in by the bright colours and affordable prices and it is one of the best discoveries I have made!
The first pair I got was the Cranberry ‘Go Higher’ (or something like that) which they no longer do, they’ve moved onto better things. I still reach for these a lot even though I’ve had them a while. The colour hasn’t faded at all and they still fit really well, however the colour does transfer a little bit when you wear a light coloured top that covers it. The transferred colour comes out in the wash though so I’m not too mad about it. They still sell this colour just in the new design and fabric.
When they brought out their new ‘Luxe’ leggings I ordered a pair with the matching crossover bra. Due to it being new product there was a whole kerfuffle which meant I had to wait ages (I think it was about 3 months in the end) for these to arrive but the customer service was impeccable. They kept me informed every step of the way and provided me with a discount code valid for the next 2 years as an apology.
The material of the luxe leggings are thick and soft, and the fit is really flattering. The waist hits at a really good point and they have a good level of compression on the stomach area.
I also have a pair of their heart contour leggings. I really like the detailing on these and the pockets are life changing! However, they don’t come up as high as the luxe leggings and so I don’t find them quite as flattering. These are in the colour ‘mystic merlot’ which is a dusty pink colour. They also do these in the luxe legging style.
I have all of these in a size small and am a UK 10/12, the leggings are all £29.99 which is great value for money and they very often have sales making them even cheaper.
Like everyone else I love a matching gym set so naturally I have the matching bras for 3 of the leggings…
I have the steel grey crossover bra, mystic merlot luxe v tape bra and the spiced pumpkin scoop neck bra. These come up quite small so I have these in medium or large, and even then it can be a bit risky when doing HIIT!
The bras are £24.99, but if you pick your timing right they have them on offer for as low as £9.99!
These are so worth the money and if I could I would have these in every single colour, I just don’t have the drawer space (or the bank balance lets be honest).
So today we are not just talking about leggings (who’s shook) because I did a haul – sorry bank account – from JUST STRONG
Firstly I need to talk about the idea behind this company because it is so great.
“I AM NOT STRONG FOR A GIRL, I AM JUST STRONG”
Because who doesn’t love being stereotyped. Going to the gym shouldn’t be about being skinny it should be about pushing yourself to get stronger. As a girl who enjoys going to the gym I do often get the comments like “but you don’t want to get bulky” no you’re right I don’t “you don’t want to look manly” who said that men were the only ones allowed to have muscles? So when I saw what this brand represented I thought it was pretty damn awesome and I am fortunate enough to be affiliated with them – that being said this will be a completely HONEST review because I gain absolutely nothing by lying to you.
Now that I’ve bored you suitably with my little feminist rant lets get into the review…
Links to everything I talk about will be at the bottom of the post
Since I do have a love (addiction?) of gym leggings we will start with those.
So these are the Charcoal Camo Just Strong Leggings and I got them in a size medium. They are 90% polyester 10% elastane. Fit wise I wish I had gone for a size small just because they are a little too big on the waist. That being said they are very flattering. The seam down the side of the leg acts as a sort of contouring which I really like. As well as the camo print there is a hexagonal honeycomb like pattern but it’s so subtle it definitely doesn’t distract from the camo print. I pull mine up so that they are just below my belly button because personally I prefer a high waisted legging. Squat proof which is always a must have and really comfortable for exercising in. I much prefer the stuff where the logo is not so obvious (as you will notice from the rest of my haul) just because I generally don’t wear things if they have big logos. All in all I rate these pretty highly and will probably order more of their leggings….just in a slightly smaller size.
Next up is the Just Strong Sports Bra…
Now this was the most disappointing. Given that it’s branded as a sports bra there is absolutely NO support so I would probably call this a crop top. Design wise I really like the band saying just strong and again the logo isn’t too big. Unfortunately I ordered a medium which is definitely too big for me (you can see it gaping at my arm pits). The material isn’t the nicest and it’s incredibly thin which is probably due to that fact its 96% polyester and makes it feel cheap. It looks fine in pictures but I can’t say I’ve worn it to the gym. A shame because I really do like the style it just isn’t practical.
Staying in the sports bra/crop top area lets talk about the Just Strong Emblem Crop Top.
Possibly my favourite thing that I got. Again I feel it is misnamed because this is much more like a sports bra than a crop top. 90% nylon 10% elastane and a much nicer feel. I got a size small and I think I’ll be getting everything in this size from now on. Very comfortable and actually surprisingly supportive although I wouldn’t try any high impact sport in it. A flattering fit definitely my new favourite sports bra. Would 100% get this again.
Having said that the Emblem Crop was my favourite I have to say this next one is also up there. The Jet Black Mesh Tee.
So cute. Its 90% polyester 10% elastane so is good and stretchy as well as being breathable. The mesh inserts on the sleeves are a nice touch and the insert on the back helps with breathability as well as looking really nice. Without the mesh it would really just be a plain oversized tee so it is definitely the key feature of this top. There is also a drawstring cord which I use to make the top a more cropped style although it is less flattering than just having it loose. I got this in a size small (I think) and it fits perfectly. Great for those days when you don’t feel like showing your tummy so far it’s got a good amount of use.
Last but not least… the Jet Black Cropped Hoodie.
I got this one in a size small but I probably could’ve gotten away with a medium. Comfy and great for throwing on when going to and from the gym or as casual wear with jeans. The pockets are a bit too small to be useful – my phone fits but it doesn’t seem secure. Even though its a cropped hoodie it hits your waist at a really nice length and with high waisted jeans/leggings you aren’t showing too much midriff. I’ve already got a lot of wear out of this one and am contemplating getting it in another colour.
And that brings us to the end of our little haul. I’m quickly going to talk about shipping… not the speediest (we’re talking 7 days minimum) but comes with a little note thanking you for supporting the brand which is so lovely!
If you do get anything from them, want to see more pics of what they look like, if you liked this post, if you want to see more like this lemme know over on Instagram:
