I Tried Girlfriend Collective's New Lightweight Line and It's Perfect For Hot, Sweaty Workouts
To be 100-percent real, nothing motivates me to exercise more than some new workout clothes. The cute-but-sweaty selfie is underrated, people! Whether I'm going for a run or taking a yoga class in my living room, it's important for me to wear comfortable, well-made pieces that I don't have to constantly adjust. They also can't be hot, because the temperatures have been crazy high these days. That's why I was excited to test out Girlfriend Collective's newest drop, FLOAT Activewear ($38-$68).
FLOAT promises to be lightweight and soft: the ideal pieces for summertime "lounging or lunging" as the brand says. I can confirm that as soon as I opened my package, I muttered "oh, damn" to myself because the fabric was so smooth and luxurious. If you're worried about these leggings slipping down or the bra riding up, don't be. I'm a D cup and wore a size Large in both of my pieces; I don't have to tug or adjust anything for hours.

The sports bra is quite supportive — my boobs don't bounce while I'm running and the straps don't dig into my shoulder. The same goes the leggings; they stay tight to my body and never sag. Overall, this is my dream set and I love it so much I'm going to buy it in another colour. I test tons of activewear as a shopping editor, and this is my sincere take on FLOAT.
Ahead, check out how the set looks on me, then shop the pieces I wore. This incredibly popular collection is selling out fast, so get what you can before it's all gone.
