Final release of Dark Bloom!

So Cassey has worn this top in her earlier videos and I’ve been wondering: “Is she ever going to release it??!” I love POPFLEX’s halter tops with the built in bra–so thankfully my thoughts have been answered:

POPFLEX Peony mini haul review

I decided to take advantage of the awesome Spring sale that’s going on at POPFLEX and snagged myself the Goddess top in Navy and the Set the Bar bra in Navy/White.

Screen Shot 2017-03-20 at 11.48.00 AM

What I love is how quickly my items shipped to me! Plus, I live in Hawaii so regular packages (like from Amazon) take FOREVER to get here. I ordered my stuff on Monday and the POPFLEX team got it shipped to my by Wednesday. How awesome is that?! I honestly think they have the best shipping speed and customer service out of all the online shopping sites that I’ve experienced 😀 (oh god Old Navy’s was TERRIBLE but that’s a rant for another time).

I did a quick photoshoot and review for you guys, in case you’re interested in buying any POPFLEX during the sale!

First up is the Goddess Top in Navy:

I decided that even though I’m a size 4 in their bras, my boobs may be x-small but the rest of me is a little bit wider, so I sized up to a 6! And I’m glad I did. In the photos I paired it with my Draw the Line Peony leggings, which I highly recommend because they’re super comfy, have breathable black mesh on the sides, and have really cute Peony print POCKETS. I’m all about them pockets. 😉

IMG_2340

The front has a really nice silhouette

 

IMG_2333

The side is a teeny bit revealing

IMG_2331

I like how it flows down the back and how well it covers the booty XD

 

 

Pros:

  • It’s super flowy and I love the little cutouts on the sides that flow down at the back.
  • The backing is beautiful with the Peony print straps to show off your back.
  • The top is made out of their bra material while the bottom skirt part is made out of their Swan tank breathable material. (I reviewed their Swan Tank here)
  • I can’t speak for girls who have larger chests, but the bra part is compressed enough to hold everything in!
IMG_2344

band is a bit tight

IMG_2342

see the difference in material? I like that the material is more breathable in the tummy area, though.

IMG_2314

There may be some side boob going on for other people, but since mine are so small, I’m not that concerned. It does look a bit funny that the black inner is poking out XD

Cons:

  • The band in the middle is kind of tight (for a good reason, though, but still) and feels a little bit awkward when you first wear it.
  • Taking the top off is a challenge! I felt like a contortionist trying to pull it off! Another reason why I’m glad that I sized up.

Overall:

  • I recommend going one size up due to the band tightness and bra. Even though mine is a little bit big on me, I’m glad I sized up.
  • I’ve yet to test it out in a workout, but I’m sure everything stays in place.
  • This is a good top if you want to show off your back 😉

Next up is the Set the Bar bra in Navy/White:

This is a bra that I’ve wanted since it first came out, but always waited to get. I fell in love with the colors and the mesh design! So when I saw that it was on sale, I digitally threw it into my cart and was so happy to get it in the mail 🙂 I read that this bra runs tighter than the heart strings bra, so I sized up to a size 6 (I’m like a 32A–really small boobs lol).

 

IMG_2364

hehe you can still see the POPFLEX tag on the right side XD I forgot to snip it off! 

 

Pros:

  • The color! I love the navy/white combo
  • Stylish and breathable mesh cut-out
  • Holds everything in place (I mean, I don’t have much to hold, but they definitely feel in place!)
  • The backing is super cute and supported. I like how thick the bands are.

 

IMG_2374

Back and arms are all thanks to PIIT!

 

Cons:

  • Underneath the armpits area, similar to the Mermaid crop bra, is very tight! As you can see from the picture below, they don’t give that much room for my back/arm flab. lol. Another reason why it’s good to size up.
  • Because this bra is tight, just like with the Goddess top, you have to contort yourself when taking it off! A good thing is that the straps are so thick I don’t feel like I’m going to tear anything. But it’s still a workout in itself to take it off XD.

 

IMG_2378

Not much armpit space

Overall, I’m happy with my purchases and am excited to wear them for all of my PIIT and POP workouts!

POPFLEX Fly Away Run Shorts Review

When I first tried these on, I realized that they run pretty large, so I had to wait and exchange my Dark Bloom run shorts size 8 for a size 6. I was so excited to get my exchange in the mail! I wore it to the gym and it was super comfy. They look very flowy, like flower petals, and have black mesh underneath for some extra coverage.

Below is the front and back of the shorts. The lighting is a bit more yellow-y due to my taking these shots at home at night, but the colors are pretty vibrant in person!

IMG_2181

The front has a really long string tie to tighten the waistband, and as the POPFLEX Stylist tip recommends, you can cut the string to a desirable length.

IMG_2186

I think cutting it, folding the edge a tiny bit over, and sewing a backstitch with black thread will work! I’m a newbie at sewing, too just FYI. 

On the picture in the left, it’s a little hard to tell, but there’s a fold of fabric that goes diagonally over the fabric covering the back, and that fold does go all the way up! So if a breeze were to ruffle the shorts, it may reveal a bit too much lol. So if you need more coverage, wearing some black bike shorts, or black POP shorts underneath totally works. Because the shorts are so light, it doesn’t feel bulky at all!

IMG_2183

Paired the Flyaway shorts with black POP shorts 2.0 for extra coverage.

The material is really like surf shorts, and it actually did wick away all the sweat I had when I worked out at the gym. What’s nice is that there’s also a velcro pocket in the back ( I love pockets!). I’m hoping the velcro is sturdy and doesn’t accidentally rip off if I’m opening the pocket too fast.

IMG_2176

Overall, this is a pretty pair of running shorts to wear! (ooh I totally just rhymed)

If you have any questions about some of the items, lmk! By the way, use this size chart here (since the Dark Bloom collection uses an updated size chart and runs a bit smaller compared to the Peony and Mermaid ones)

Screen Shot 2016-11-16 at 9.39.13 PM

I’m a size 4 (32A) in their bras and a size 6 (hip size 37-38″) in their bottoms for the Peony collection

I’m adding some items to my cart, too 😉

Screen Shot 2017-03-20 at 11.48.00 AM

I sized up the Set the Bar bra because they tend to run a little bit smaller.

 

Pictured below are some Peony collection items that I’ve previously reviewed: Swan tank in Navy, POP short in Peony, and Pointe leggings in Snow White)

 

 

Dark Bloom Haul!

It’s extremely gloomy and gray today, so getting my POPFLEX in the mail early really brightened my day! I rushed to open each package and tried everything on. I noticed that the sizing changed pretty drastically from the Mermaid to Dark Bloom, as everything ran smaller than before (like with the Wishing Star Capris that I reviewed HERE).

*DB: Dark Bloom

 

img_1893

POPFLEX haul (starting from left top): Curious Crop top, Heartstring bras, Zenith Zip bra, Flyaway run short, DB Wishing star capri, Adventure Zip leggings, DB POP shorts.

 

 

I’ll post better pictures later, but here’s a brief review of my haul:

img_1888

Enchanted shrug in Plum + DB Zenith Zip bra + DB POP shorts

I tried the bottoms on first! Everything fit as expected, as I went a size up (size 8) and it was pretty comfy. The color of the Dark Bloom print, along with the cabernet Adventure Zip leggings were so pretty!

The black tank (Victorious Tank in night) fit pretty well, and I like the soft material that it’s made out of. The Adventure Zip leggings surprisingly fit kinda snug vs the Your Royal Highness leggings (that I reviewed here ) in the same size, which I thought was weird. The Zenith Zip bra is probably my favorite bra out of the bunch, as I don’t have to do my usual contortion act to get my broad shoulders over the straps. Just zip up and I’m good to go.

img_1896

Here is an overall kinda quick review 😉

*something to note* Whatever has the Dark Bloom print has a similar material to the BodyPOP watercolor shorts, so it feels slippery and smooth.

BRAS

  • Heart Strings bra (night, cabernet, DB) size 4
    • A little bit tight. If you have wide shoulders and a small bust, I would size up. Overall it fits my small chest (size 34A), but I had a difficult time getting it over my shoulders. What’s frustrating is that I was a size 4 in their previous collection (Peony, that bra was my favorite!) but according to this picture, there is a bit of a width difference:
    • img_1892
  • Zenith Zip bra (size 4)
    • again, fits my boobs but a bit tight around my shoulders.
    • Also feels a bit tight around the arm pit area.
    • Love the zipper, which reduces my struggle to put on/remove the bra by A LOT.
    • Print is amazing, as usual.
    • I recommend sizing up, especially due to the tight arm pit area.

TOPS

  • Victorious Tank in night (size 6)
    • Comfy and soft, felt pretty true to size
    • I like the swooping, curved hemline at the bottom.
    • The deep V cut lets you show off your sports bra without being too hoochie mama (lol).
  • Curious Crop Top (size 6) in DB
    • Glad I went up a size, as I figured my wide shoulders would cause issues.
    • The neckline is pretty tight, so I recommend sizing up
    • No zippers or clasps, so pulling this on was no minor feat!
    • makes my arms/shoulders look pretty good
    • Once it’s on, it’s super pretty and the straps are wide and sturdy–I can probably do PIIT28 in this and have everything stay in place (though I’m small-chested so I can’t speak for different chested girls)

BOTTOMS 

  • Adventure Zip legging (size 8) in Cabernet
    • a little snug than the Highness in size 8, but fit well
    • love the POCKETS and the fact that I can unzip the leggings whenever I need to take them off!
  • Fly Away Run short (size 8) in DB
    • Definitely go a size down! The band is stretchy but pretty wide. I need to exchange mine for a smaller size.
    • I love the design of the shorts and how they look like flower petals 🙂
    • The material is similar to surf shorts (quick to dry, light, and stretchy)
    • The shorts don’t have a liner (the part that looks like underwear) so if you need more cover, you can wear black POP shorts or compression shorts underneath
    • Read the Stylist tips on the product page–the drawstrings are long so you can cut and customize it to the length that you want.
  • Wishing Star capris (size 8) in Dark Bloom
    • true to size, comfy
    • They’re beautiful, that’s all I can say.
    • I love that the wishing star parts of the capris are made out of the DB print, too!
    • The only downside: NO POCKETS 😦 they’d be perfect if they had pockets. Oh well.

Dark Bloom Ch. 2 RELEASE

I was so excited this morning because POPFLEX released Part 2 of their Dark Bloom collection today! I was so worried items would sell out, but fortunately, I was able to get the pieces that I wanted…I kind of killed my wallet, but my heart is excited and happy to wear them to future POP classes! Here is my haul:

img_1863

Of course, I had to buy ALL the Dark Bloom print stuff! I feel like it’s my favorite print so far in the BodyPop/POPFLEX collections. I also forgot to add this pic, but they made a beautiful Zenith Zip bra:

screen-shot-2017-02-07-at-4-21-29-pm

Look at how cute that is! Now there’s a sports bra that I won’t have to contort myself out of XD. One thing to note is that the backing is sheer, so we’ll see how supportive they are.

They also brought out shiny capris and zip bras:

And for some reason, only the Shiny Capris have POCKETS! :\ I was in such a rush to get my stuff I didn’t even notice it had pockets lol. Oh, and another new thing is their running shorts:

screen-shot-2017-02-07-at-4-22-18-pm

They look like flower petals!

Phew! Did some serious retail therapy today. I can’t wait to review them all and show you guys! If you’re interested in checking out more Dark Bloom stuff, click HERE 😀 If you do buy any pieces, let me know!

New Dark Bloom Feb 7th!

February 7th is the big day!

fullsizerender-20

I’m so excited!!

Part 2 of Dark Bloom is coming February 7th—and I CAN’T WAIT. I hope we get some printed running shorts, and those BEAUTIFUL wishing star capris in that Dark Bloom print! I already love the pieces they have now, so I’m bracing my wallet for the 7th!

POPFLEX Your Highness leggings review

screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-5-37-50-pmThese leggings. are. GORGEOUS. At first I was skeptical, thinking “oh the design kinda looks like other designs that are out there.” but once I put them on and went for a run in them, I fell in love with them. ;P What I love most about the leggings is the fit and design. The material is comfy but keeps everything in place while I went running, and the mesh parts kept my legs cool and ventilated (lol). The design of the mesh cutouts is super cute, and kinda sexy, if I may say so myself. Here are some shots of the mesh design:

img_1652img_1653img_1646

img_1649

I love details. The almost chevron design on the side with the stripe gives the leggings so much movement!

img_1651

I love these, have I said that enough? lol

I think the only con is that these beauties have no pockets 😦 Other than that, they’re my favorite pair so far! Thanks, POPFLEX, for making an awesome pair of leggings. I wish I could wear these every day.

btw they’re called Your Highness leggings because they’re high waisted leggings! So they’re pretty flattering. If you don’t like stuff coming up (or covering) your bellybutton, you can always fold them over if you want.

In regards to sizing: I’m about 128lbs and 5’4″. The size 8 fit me perfectly. Make sure to follow the new size guide! They now run their sizes from XXS to 2X! Isn’t that awesome? 😀 You can check out these leggings HERE, or just click on my new Links menu above!

#DarkBloom Wishing Star Capris

I was so excited to get these in the mail! ^_^ I just had to go do a little mini photoshoot on my own, and then later on with a friend. So these are the POPFLEX Wishing Star Capris, which are something us POPsters have been wishing for so long ❤ A good number of us out there are more petite or short, so capris are awesome—and also great for hot weather places, like Hawaii!

So here they are: in Night and Plum. The make my legs look sooo long because of the side mesh! One unfortunate thing was that I noticed a little tear on my plum capris 😦  This happened after my second time wearing them, so I’m guessing that my calves were too big or something lol.

 

I am 5’4″ and got a size 6, though these felt pretty snug on me. When I did a size comparison with the previous POPFLEX pointe legging and this one, I noticed that there’s a HUGE difference! Maybe next time I’ll get a size 8 (which is my normal medium sized bottoms lol).

Here are some pros and cons before I post all my pics from both shoots 😀

PROS:

  • beautiful color
  • unique criss-cross star pattern on sides
  • wicks moisture pretty well

CONS:

  • a bit tight on calf area (if you have big soccer/running calves like me)
  • no pockets 😦
  • snug, but probably would’ve fit better if I sized up: ALWAYS check the size guide if you’re not sure! That was my con lol.

Onto the pics! If you have any questions, let me know. You can check out all of the POPFLEX stuff here!
