Add to Cart: The Only Pair of Patterned Leggings I've Ever Really Wanted
Welcome to Add to Cart, in which we count down the activewear and wellness products currently on our wish lists.
On this week's edition of Add to Cart, I'm super focused on items that can seamlessly become a part of my everyday routine. I'm quite the minimalist, so I only want to add things to my life that are practical and useful. However, upon scrolling below, you'll also learn that I chose a particular piece that is out of my all-black, printless, comfort zone, but (supposedly) change is a good thing, right? Plus, even though I'm somewhat color- and pattern-averse, that doesn't mean I don't know a good item when I see one. Keep reading to learn more about sports bras, crystal-infused candles, and other wellness-inspired products I'm itching to try right now.
Lululemon Speed Up Bra ($78)
This sports bra is proof that you don't have to sacrifice form for functionality. Its flattering design was created to keep your girls secure during runs and HIIT, and it was made with C/D cups in mind. So, yes, you need this.
Available in sizes 2 to 12.
Takesumi Detox Deodorant ($22)
After my skin recently told me that it's irritated and done with my beloved natural deodorant (this is still a sensitive subject), I've been on the hunt for a new option. This charcoal deodorant, which promises to absorb unwanted odor and keep you smelling fresh, piqued my interest. I'm especially drawn to the sleek design.
Monreal London Hi-Tech Seamless Sports Bra ($80)
>If you love hot yoga like me but aren't a fan of your lower abs like me, this sports bra is perfect for you. Pair it with your favorite pair of high-waisted leggings for a sleek workout look that makes you look lean and toned.
>Available in sizes XS to L.
Varley Kingman Royal Marble Legging ($110)
Do I wear printed leggings? No. Do I want these? Absolutely. Maybe it's the mesh panel cutouts. Maybe it's the beautiful marble swirls. Maybe it's the flattering high waistline. Maybe it's the fact that I love everything Varley makes. Whatever it is, I'm intrigued and hoping to add these leggings to my closet very soon.
Available in sizes XXS to L.
Hyperice Vyper 2 Vibrating Foam Roller ($200)
Foam rolling is an essential part of my fitness routine. It's what keeps my body feeling 100% between acupuncture appointments. This vibrating foam roller is definitely on my list of things to try. I can only imagine the sweet relief it would offer my tight, overworked muscles.
Free People Soy Quartz Crystal Candle ($58)
Candles are a huge part of my self-care routine. Every day, I get home from work and immediately light five candles in my bedroom (four unscented, one scented) because it helps me unwind. This crystal-infused candle would be perfect for me, and with scents like Oak Moss & Amber and Leather & Driftwood, I'm sold.
Lively The Active High-Neck Bra ($35)
Lively is a brand that is focused on body positivity and inclusivity. That's why the brand offers bras that fit up to 22 different sizes. It recently launched activewear, and we've enlisted our team to try each of the available sizes. We have zero complaints so far.
Available in sizes XS to L.
Sweaty Betty Carve Swimsuit ($120)
Finally, the rain has stopped and the sun is out in Southern California, so I'm ready to hit the beach. However, it can be difficult to find a flattering and supportive one-piece that can stand up to the cold waters and the harsh waves of the Pacific Ocean. This swimsuit looks like it's up to the challenge.
Available in sizes XS to L.
