Albion Fit Petal Pants – Giveaway!

I received complimentary clothing from Albion for review purposes. This is not a sponsored post and all opinions are my own.

It’s not often that I experience love-at-first-sight with a piece of clothing, but when I do, it sure does hit me like a ton of bricks. I’d been having a hard time getting Albion Fit’s Petal Pants out of my head since the moment Kaitlin sent me a link to them one day during our usual G-chatting.

I’ve worked with Albion Fit in the past to review the Go Long Crew top, and thankfully they wanted to work with me again to review a pair of bottoms to help promote the new fall collection. A very special pair of bottoms…the Petal Pants! They arrived and I was surprised to find they were striped; I’d only looked at the photos like the one above, which made them seem heather gray, and not the more detailed photos. I always prefer patterns over solids though, so it was a pleasant surprise!

I will quickly get my cons out of the way. Firstly these leggings retail for $64, and I must say that is quite steep (but if you want to purchase a pair I will have a discount code for you at the end of this post!) especially for leggings that are not made of any sort of sweat-wicking material (EDIT: I’ve been informed by Albion that this material does contain sweat-wicking features!). My second con is more based on personal preference…I much prefer workout bottoms with a wider waistband that also comes up higher. To me that just makes everything feel more “tucked in” while I’m moving around.

However my cons definitely end there because not only are the Petal Pant leggings adorable, but they also perform extremely well! My number-one workout legging pet peeve is having to hike them up constantly. I wore these leggings all day on Sunday, which included a two-mile jog and a walk with a friend, and never had to do that. They’re also ridiculously comfortable and soft. The material, while not very effective for sweat-wicking, is still of high quality; I never wanted to take these leggings off! I also loved the mid-calf length.

I ordered a size small and they came up higher on my calves than they do on this model, probably because I’m 5’5″. (Source)

Petal accents are everywhere in Albion Fit’s fall line and I’m in love with that delicate touch. I adore girly fitness apparel – we all need to feel a little pretty while sweating like beasts, right? Speaking of girly…for the rest of October, all pink items are on sale to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Albion Fit offers swimwear too, and unique offerings at that. I love the “pinup” look of their bathing suits and also the wide variety of styles and cuts available. I’m pretty sure most body types could find a flattering swimsuit from Albion! Though I must admit most are pretty pricey.
