Reviewing Lauren James Activewear







YALL.  I can’t believe this day is finally here!!  Launching this activewear line has been a labor of love for so many people at Lauren James!  Since this is a whole new product category for us we wanted to make sure it was absolutely perfect!  We called our activewear line ACTIVATE because the word literally means “to make active” which is exactly what we want this activewear to do!  

I know activewear is sometimes hard to buy online so I wanted to review all of the pieces myself and give you my honest opinion on each one!  I also had a lot of the girls on our team try on the pieces so I can give you an idea of which pieces work best for different body types!  And since this was a new thing for us, we only have a limited quantity available.  So if you see something you like, order it quick because it will probably sell out fast!! 

For reference, I am 5’8” and typically wear a size medium in Lauren James!



Set In Motion Leggings:

Black– My overall favorite activewear piece!  These leggings are perfect for any activity or for just lounging around.  I wear them so much that I had to get multiple pairs!  They are seriously the perfect legging!!  They are high waisted, super stretchy, full length and fit true to size! 

Grey– Different fabric than the black due to the heathered coloring.  These leggings have more compression than the black which makes them feel like they run a bit smaller.  I recommend sizing up if you have muscular legs/thighs.  The grey leggings are also more breathable than the black so I like to wear these when I’m running because they don’t get hot!  


Anything But Basic:  

These are so cute and have some amazing details!  I recommend these for yoga, pilates, hiking and lounging!  These have mesh details and pockets on the sides which is perfect for your cell phone! There is also a back zip pocket on the waistband for your key if you’re out on a hike!  They do run a bit big in the waist so if you are between sizes I would size down.  



Front Runner Short:

These are super comfortable and fit true to size!  There is also a compression layer underneath the print and hidden pocket on the compression layer AND a zipper pocket in the waistband!


Make The Cut Scallop Short:

These are very lightweight and don’t have a liner so they are perfect for light workouts or lounging around!  I like to wear these around the house or running errands too! These also run a tiny bit shorter than the Front Runner short!


Sports Bras

Got Your Back:

This design is super comfortable and perfect for all sizes! (It’s my personal favorite for working out!) This style has adjustable straps and built in light-weight padding.  Probably the best option for larger chests out of all of our bra styles!  


Ahead Of The Curve:

This style has a deep V cut in the front so it’s probably better suited for small/medium chests.  It has removable pads and adjustable straps too so you can wear it however you feel most comfortable!  The laser cut detailing on the back is SO adorable too!  I love this bra for high impact workouts!


Better With A Bow:

This design is cute under a top or on its own!  It is longer than our other bras so it’s almost like a hybrid of a cropped tank and a bra.  This design is fuller coverage but runs a bit small so if you have a larger chest you might want to size up!  



Final Mile Tank:

This tank is super fun because it looks like a basic tank in the front but it has some amazing detailing in the back!  It is SO cute with the Better With A Bow sports bra because the bow peeks through the cut out at the top!  I also love the draping in the back because it adds a little something extra to an already cute top!  I love to wear this tank when running or at the gym lifting weights!


Tie Breaker Long Sleeve:

The material of this top is absolutely amazing!  It’s lightweight and ultra soft and works great as just a cover-up or as a workout top.  The wide open back and draping is perfect for showing off your cute sports bra underneath and the bow at the top is an extra special detail!  I love to wear this top as more of an athleisure piece!  Both of our tops fit true to size!


I hope that helped!!  Don’t forget, if you see something you like, order it quick!  We have a very limited amount of our activewear so they will sell out fast!


XO, Lauren
