Taffy Activewear Review & Giveaway

A warm smile is the universal language of kindess.  ~William Arthur Ward

One of the things I love most about being a part of the FitApproach Ambassador Community is the opportunity to review products that I may have not come across on my own.  I was excited when I was asked to review clothes from a new sports apparel company called Taffy.  It’s marketed as: stylish activewear for women with curves.  Taffy is a stylish new line of activewear designed specifically and exclusively for women sizes 14-24.  All tops and bottoms are tailored to fit and flatter a woman’s curves. Taffy Activewear combines fashion and function effortlessly in order for you to get as much enjoyment from your outfit – and workout – as possible.

As I explored their website, I found out the creator of the line was a former personal trainer.  She noticed that many of her female clients over a size 12 had a difficult time finding stylish, flattering activewear, and often wore oversized t-shirts and sweats.  Knowing how important it is to look good and feel confident in the gym environment or anywhere, Katie decided to create a women’s activewear line that finally met the need for attractive plus-size activewear.  

I couldn’t agree more! I decided to review the Taffy Essential Jacket, knowing my mom would love to try it out. She loves to bike and she swims almost every day at the gym, so I knew the jacket would be perfect for her bike rides as well as going to and from the gym.  

My mom has the best smile!  She’s a nurse and I imagine her patients find it comforting to see her smile.

She took the jacket out for a spin on her bike and loved the length and that it paired nicely with her current activewear pants and shirts.  Mom also said it fit comfortably and she’s looking forward to trying out the capri’s and workout tops.

Be sure to head over to their website where you can find information on sales, as well as where to find their line in stores like TJMAXX and Marshall’s!

And because it’s St. Patrick’s Day and you are hopefully feeling lucky–enter our giveway for the Taffy Essential Jacket (in black or white valued at $64!).  All you have to do is leave a comment below–How do you plan to get moving in the Taffy Essential Jacket?  Good luck!

    I will use it to ride bikes with my daughter now that it’s getting nice-ish (above freezing!) outside. Also I’m going to start a Couch to 5K this weekend.

    So cute! Your mom looks great in that jacket! I would love to rock it during spring transition weather – riding my bike like your mom is, or out for a jog with my kids! :)

    I will get moving in that jacket by walking, running and probably wear it for yoga too!

      Actually, I would give it my Mom, as it would fit her (sorry, just realized sizing when I went to site) and would love this jacket for walking. It would be a wonderful gift for her!!

    Just started my new healthy lifestyle in Jan. of this year. I’m down 41 lbs and have 80 to go. Walking with my husband in the evenings and it gets a little chilly still. Need a jacket and this would be perfect.

    First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if
    you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    thoughts before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thanks!
