Beautiful and functional activewear with abi and joseph

If you don’t already know abi and joseph, they’re an Australian women’s activewear brand that started from humble beginnings in Perth in 2006.

Abi, an ex-dancer and former Pilates instructor, struggled to find sports gear that looked good, fit well and blurred the lines between activewear and leisure wear. She wanted something to inspire her to live an active lifestyle, and in doing so, created a brand that now inspires many women to live a full and active life.

After years of working with Australia’s leading designers and clothing technicians developing the abi and joseph range, the brand relocated to sunny Brisbane with a fresh team to take this vision to the next level and has never looked back.

The abi and joseph range has something for everyone, whether you are a committed runner, gym enthusiast, yogi or devotee to the sports luxe fashion movement.

So, how did the abi and joseph range stand up in our Reformer Pilates studio? Professional athlete and Body Smart client Steph Bairstow has put the gear to the test over the last couple of weeks, and the results are in.

According to Steph, the Abi Racerback tank is amazing, and is the most comfortable fit and style she has worn in a long time. “It breathes easily throughout the workout, which is a definite plus if you are doing a cardio workout or working up a sweat”, says Steph.

The Ada Sports Crop also received a glowing report – “The fit and coverage was great, and the fabric was so soft to wear (although the layered seams were a little irritating). It also gave a good shape and didn’t cut in anywhere, which is exactly what you want from a sports bra”, says Steph.

Finally, the Tashi Rushed 7/8 Tight had a good feel and the fit was super comfortable, however Steph would opt for a different design or style next time, something more with a firmer and more supportive fit such as the Contour ¾ Tight which has power mesh and panelling for support which still moves with you.

Have you heard of or shopped with abi and joseph before? If not, you should definitely check them out next time you are in the market for activewear that inspires you to get out and about.
