Recently I was contacted by a representative of Lorna Jane, an Australian-based activewear company, with an opportunity to do a Lorna Jane review for my mom readers.
I was not familiar with Lorna Jane, so I went to their website to check out their stylish workout clothes. I learned the brand is relatively new to the U.S. market, but going on 25 years strong overseas and was pleasantly surprised to find a handful of locations in Orange County, including one close to me at Fashion Island in Newport Beach.
After learning more about the brand, including their mission to inspire women to lead their best life through Active Living, I was curious to check out their line of stylish activewear.
MOVE NOURISH BELIEVE
I couldn’t wait to dig into the racks and try on some goodies. There is nothing better than having a few new workout pieces to add into the mix for a little extra push to get out the door.
Let’s Get to the Point
One of my first questions was about the price point, so I am going to answer that up front because you might be wondering too.
The answer is pricey, comparable pricey to other luxury activewear lines.
But for me, investing in high quality workout wear is so worth it. For the amount I am in my workout clothes, and for how versatile they are, meaning you can (and often have to) wear them from gym to life activities, it is worth it to buy quality pieces that fit and look good.
5 Stylish Looks for Real Moms
I wanted to show you a sample of different Lorna Jane looks for real moms like us.
I am not a fitness model. Typing that made me laugh, so please humor me with the photos and poses below. If you were there that day you would have heard my giggles.
I am just a real mom, 39 years old, who wants to feel good in a workout outfit I can wear outside of the gym. These pieces completely fit the bill.
# 1 – Workout to School Pickup
I like 3/4 length of the pants and the Influence Zip Through jacket it is the perfect cover up for running errands after getting in a workout.
I also found the jackets to be really flattering in cut and style. This is important when you might be running around in it all day.
The mesh tank is also one of my faves – picked one up for myself as a matter of fact! Great for layering over a jog bra for a run or class and is lightweight.
Don’t Wait 3/4 Tight $87.99
Kira Sports Bra $69.99
Dantelle Excel Tank $59.99
Influence Excel Zip Through $149.99
# 2 – Lorna Jane Yoga Wear
After having two kids, my chest is, um, less than ample.
The Lorna Jane sports bras and built-in tanks had the most fabulous removable pads to give you some shape (THANK YOU very much.)
No more “jog bra pancake chest!”
The fabric on this tank shown had just the right amount of “suck you in” factor. In fact the description on the website of the tank is, “maximum support slim-fit tank.” I would absolutely agree.
Amy F/L Tight $82.00
Madison Excel Stripe Tank $69.99
# 3 – Get in Your Mileage with a Message
I also got a pair of these amazing reversible tights. They are extremely soft and I love the drawstring.
Plus, talk about the most bang for your buck – the pink side reverses to navy.
Two pairs of workout pants in one!
LJ Reversible 7/8 Tight $96.99
Pammy Bra – White $59.99
Run for Me Mesh Tank $62.99
# 4 – Lorna Jane Lifestyle Pieces
The sales associate told me, out of all the Lorna Jane pieces, the Amy Tight (available in 3/4 and F/L lengths) is the one staple every gal must have. I agreed. Super flattering with their panel lines on the back and legs.
I also fell in love with this Miami Long Sleeve Top, the perfect piece to throw over after yoga or working out. It’s cute enough to even wear alone (no workout necessary!)
Amy F/L Tight $82.00
Pammy Bra – Black $55.00
Miami Long Sleeve Top $59.99
# 5 – Let’s Hear it for the Boy (Short!)
We paired it with another inspirational tank, “Busy Working Out,” which happened to be one of the softest garments ever.
Almost felt like a pajama tank!
Phoenix Active Run Short, $64.99
Busy Working Out Tank, $39.99
Comfort Sports Bra, $65.99
Lorna Jane gets in new fun pieces every month, designed by active women for women.
Thanks for hosting me Lorna Jane, you might be my new BFF. Smooch!
