Just FIT Activewear Review
Underwear that is made from certified space technology sounds pretty serious. In fact, the way Celestine Cheong, founder of activewear company Just FIT explained it to me in our previous feature, the technology in the garments involves some serious science.
That sounds great to me, because I am a runner with some serious underwear problems. I’m looking for a pair that stays in place, combats moisture and won’t show through leggings.
This is a tall order for a little garment, but Just FIT claims to have each of these common work out worries solved. Needless to say, I was excited to hit the roads to give the gear a test run.
For thong wearers, the Skylab can’t be beat.
The Just FIT collection is made up of three panties, and I was able to test out one of each style—The Skylab Thong, Kitty Hawk Bikini and Odyssey Boyshort.
All three feature bonded and seamless designs so no panty lines show through. And true to Just FIT’s promise, the fabric kept me relatively dry during workouts. I was still sweaty after my runs, but by considerably less. What’s more, the design of each style is simple and attractive, which made me excited to wear them.
My favorite style was the Odyssey Boyshort because it offered the most coverage and was the most comfortable to work out in. The Kitty Hawk Bikini offered a little less coverage, but I was impressed by how smooth and invisible this style was. The Skylab Thong proved to be the perfect workout thong. I don’t always wear thongs to the gym but will reach for one if I’m wearing lighter, less forgiving leggings. This one was not only invisible but it stayed put during a tough HIIT class with lots of movement—I barely knew it was there. For thong wearers, the Skylab can’t be beat.
While these styles were great for working out, I think they will also come in handy during the warmer months when it’s hard to keep cool. Under a special occasion dress or just a sundress, I have a feeling the phase change material will come in handy again!
The underwear comes in sizes UK 8 through UK 16-18. I am between a small and a medium, and found that the UK 10 in each style fit me the best.
The top kept me warm during outdoor exercise and activities, like skiing and running.
Celestine also sent me The Skyluxe 3D Low Impact Sports Bra and the Orion Base Layer, both of which are made from the same NASA-engineered phase change material as the underwear.
Its effects on my top were just as good as they were on my bottom! I definitely felt less sweaty wearing the Orion Base Layer. What’s more, the top kept me warm during outdoor exercise and activities, like skiing and running.
I wore a UK size 8, which fit snuggly so it was easy to layer another shirt or jacket over it. But it can also be worn on its own—one arm features the Just FIT logo in reflective strips for safety at night. The inside hem of the shirt features the same seamless SensElast technology so it didn’t ride up while I ran, a problem I face with most other shirts.
Visually, I was drawn to the 3D Low Impact Sports Bra right away. I love the modern black on white design and find it looks good under everything. It has flocked silicone in place of an underwire so you get natural support and lift in a design that’s easy to move it. It’s meant for low impact activities like yoga and barre, but I wore it running and felt comfortably supported.
The size range for the bra ranges from x-small (32A) to medium/large (38C). I wear a 32B and fit into the x-small with no problem. It was comfortable enough to wear all day, a feature I took advantage of on more than one occasion.
I am serious when I say that I recommend Just FIT to all woman, especially those who have ever picked up a pair of leggings and thought, “what do I wear under these?” A little help from some space technology has helped make my workouts feel a lot more down to earth.
