***Disclosure:For Two Fitness® sent me a Sweating For Two® racer back tank top to review. All opinions are my own.
Following along this blog, you’ve seen that I’ve done my best to stay active and have enjoyed good success with running up to and including my 35 weeks of pregnancy. With restless leg syndrome kicking my butt, I’m opting for more rest and focusing on only doing what I can as my energy and sleep (or lack thereof) allow me. It was a tough decision on the one hand because I can still run, it still feels good and I still have the stamina to go 2-3 miles (with walk breaks thrown in). On the other hand, I’m at a crucial point in this journey where I need to focus my energy (or lack thereof) on getting ready for this baby, spending quality time with my boys before the chaos of adding another child to the mix comes and trying to be a good, reliable wife to my hubby who has been forced to shoulder a lot of extra stuff because of my health issues.
Through it all though, I’ve been lucky enough to be part of the For Two Fitness® family as a brand ambassador. It really was a no-brainer for me given that I already owned two racer back tanks and could vouch for the quality and comfort of the product. I started wearing it as soon as I had announced my pregnancy and it has been a staple in my gym bag through the last few months.
Here’s a bit about For Two Fitness® for those who may not be familiar with the maternity company:
“You are dedicated to the health of your pregnancy, and we are dedicated to you. For Two Fitness® is the premier maternity fitness apparel brand, offering performance apparel that functions and flatters like nothing else. We are committed to celebrate and support moms who are striving for healthy, fit, pregnancies. Discover for yourself why celebrities, professional athletes, and moms everywhere love For Two Fitness® performance apparel!
Our Perfect Pregnancy Jacket and Hoodie are long enough to cover even the most pregnant belly. Clever pleated pockets and side ruching accent the belly and flatter your figure. French Terry and Lycra mix for supreme comfort and stretch, as well as recovery. Two outer pockets, and two inner pockets. Contrast zipper. Goes with everything!
Our fabrics are high performance, soft, moisture wicking, and originate from the same mills as the fancy athletic apparel you already wear. Maternity clothes are expensive as it is, so we work hard to keep these high end, specialty garments affordable. In fact, many of our price points are lower than standard high quality athletic wear counterparts. Many of our repeat customers are fitness professionals with very high standards.
We offer basic neutrals and vivid, on-trend colors that pop. Our slogans and graphics are perfect for pregnancy announcements, and for feeling great in your ever-changing body. You’ll exude joy and confidence in your For Two Fitness apparel, and no will wonder “Is she, or isn’t she?” We also carry a Signature line without graphics, which will soon become your everyday staples.
We design our own garments in-house, and our slogans are registered trademarks, so you won’t find these cute tops anywhere else. Don’t be fooled by imitators.”
I think it’s pretty obvious from all the Instagram pics and shots I post here that I really do love these tanks. Given the opportunity to post an additional review and to receive a third tank in one of their new colours was easy for me. I LOVE the colour of the tank they sent me. It’s beautiful and, like my other two, comfortable, supportive and flattering. I’ve already gotten several compliments on it.
I like the racer back straps because it really helps the tank stay in place and doesn’t leave me fidgeting with it. The fabric is very soft, washes extremely well and doesn’t fade out (as a point of reference, I used my pink Running For Two® tank all through my second pregnancy and the colour is still vibrant after 2 pregnancies). The tank stays in place which is lovely because at this stage in the game, the last thing I want is to be constantly picking at my shirt, pulling it down or (worse) having 3 inches of flesh belt bedazzling the world around me. No one wants clothing that doesn’t stay put. Pregnant women are definitely no exception.
If you are an active Mama-to-be or know of one, I honestly cannot recommend these tanks enough. They are an absolutely perfect gift idea and they are beyond cute. At a time when most women don’t feel overly cute, a little definitely goes a long way 🙂
