Animal Prints Are Back!

Making a huge comeback this season are Animal Printed leggings and crops. If you were ever a lover of the Animal Trend well its back in full force.

Our Animal Printed styles boast scrunch booty detail, a high waisted fit and superior fabric for moisture control while you work out. Zero show through so you can train stress free knowing that your gym tights are squat proof. Coupled with that is the added UV Protection component in the fabric. This is so that your beautiful activewear can last for years and still look as fresh as when you purchased it without signs of fading. Anti pilling technology ensures you won’t get that unsightly balling that appears on cheaper gym apparel.

Brazilian Stylists are always thinking about the fit of their designs and how this will accentuate the female physique. This current trend from Brazil has a super emphasis on the bootyyyy!!!! Designs that make the booty look curvier due to cuts in the fabric and carefully placed contours in various colour palettes.

How to Care for your Activewear

If you live in your activewear, you’ll probably need to wash it fairly often, so in order to keep it in pristine condition, special care must be taken during laundering. By treating good quality activewear as an investment, you’ll be able to wear your favourite leggings, yoga pants and crop tops for many years to come. Here are our best tips for keeping your Brazilian activewear in great condition.

Wash after work outs

It’s best to wash your activewear immediately after workouts, as this will reduce the likelihood of permanent sweat stains forming. Leaving dirty workout gear in your washing basket too long can lead to lingering smells that won’t come out in the wash and the bacteria present may even cause the material to deteriorate faster.

Air dry

It’s best to hang out your activewear to dry naturally, as the heat of clothes dryers can cause the material to lose its elasticity and break down faster. If you must use the dryer, be sure to put it on the lowest possible setting and let it run for no more than 20 minutes to guard against shrinking and loss of shape.

Separate whites and colours

Always wash your activewear separately from your other laundry and make sure you separate pieces by colour. Even if you are washing multiple pieces in similar colours, it’s best to put each piece in its own individual washbag to prevent dye transfer.

Stick to cold, gentle cycles

By only washing your activewear on cold, gentle cycles, you’ll be able to prolong the life of your favourite leggings and crop tops. Cold wash cycles will further prevent colour fade and bleed, and also shrinkage. What’s more, washing in cold water makes it less likely for any stains to permanently set.

Avoid bleach and fabric softener

Bleach and fabric softener should be avoided when washing your activewear as they may cause the material to break down or lose elasticity. Instead, opt for gentle detergents and specialised stain removers for any stains present.

By following these tips when washing your activewear you can expect it to retain its original quality for many years. Remember, quality activewear from the best Brazilian brands, such as Hipkini, Super Hot and Oxyfit, will last you much longer than department store alternatives and will actually save you money in the long run. BrazilActiv stock a huge range of beautiful Brazilian activewear made from quality supplex fabric, designed to last you years’ worth of workouts.
