The other week I was going through Instagram and heard about this company Ellie. Let me tell you guys: I am seriously obsessing over this monthly subscription service! Ellie is a monthly subscription service that sends you WORKOUT CLOTHES. Many of you know this but I love working out. I love going to the gym so I’m always on the hunt for cute clothes I can work out in.
Ellie has two subscription plan: $39.95 and $49.95. The first plan includes a top, sports bra, and leggings. The second plan includes those three items as well as two additional accessories. Ellie sent me the $49.95 option and I totally forgot to take pictures of the two accessories I received. If you’re interested in seeing the two accessories, check out my YouTube video.
I love crop muscle tees when I workout. I actually have a similar top in the same style but it’s all cotton and grey. If you know me in real life, you probably have seen me worn it multiple times. The back of the top is mesh so it’s perfect if you sweat a lot on your back since the fabric allows you to air out your sweat.
Make power moves all December long in our Luxe Crop Tank, featuring a mesh drape back with an opening detail, high neckline, and Dry Wik finish. This top will take you from your high-intensity workouts to Sunday brunch with the girls.
Marika Sports Bra
I love the second layer of the mesh, but I personally don’t like the v cut design. This is simply because I am very flat chested and I do not want to draw any attention to my chest area. I usually just stick to plain (very plain) sports bra. My favorite part of the sports bra is the removable cups! I love having these in a sports bra so I don’t have to worry about anything poking through if you know what I mean… Haha, but overall, I do love the sports bra, It’s just my least favorite out of the three.
Our Remi sports bra was designed to stay in place during your toughest workouts. It’s complete with a mesh overlay for more ventilation, crisscross strap details at the back for extra support, and removable cups pads for a customizable fit.
I love color blocking. I’m not a big fan of pattern leggings at all so these leggings were perfect for me. It’s either color blocking or a plain color when it comes to leggings. I love the fit of these and these are squat proof! One thing I did wish these leggings have is pockets. I love pockets because when I’m at the gym, I hate putting my phone on the floor especially if I want to change the music or write down how many sets/reps I’ve done. It’s just more convenient to have pockets in leggings. Also, I love the cut of these leggings; they fall perfectly right at my ankles, which is pretty nice!
With a bold color block design, our Track Ankle legging lends a dynamic style for in and out of the gym. Details include an ankle length inseam, 3” flat waistband, and moisture wicking fabric.
This month’s box came with a jump rope from Marika and a hot/cold clay pack from Balance Collection. To be honest, I most likely will not use the jump rope at all but I will definitely be using the clay pack to its full potential. I get really bad cramps during the time of the month so I will for sure be heating the pack up.
I honestly 100% recommend this monthly subscription service to anyone who loves workout apparel. Through this service, you’ll never have to shop for activewear outfits ever again! Although for me personally, I would opt for the $39.95 option instead. I don’t think I will be using the accessories as much. Looking at previous monthly boxes, I’m just not an accessory kind of person. With the subscription service, you have five days to preview what’s going to be in the box. From there, you have the chance to opt out if you don’t like the month’s items. I would like to mention that the package is sent in a beautiful rose gold color. Also, I believe Ellie just sent me another box so I’m so excited for the January edition! Nonetheless, I definitely recommend this service to anyone who loves activewear and I personally would sign up for this service myself as well.
