Cute And Comfortable Activewear From Marika

I've said it before and I will say it again. One thing that can always be a motivator when working out, is making sure you have comfortable and cute workout gear. That in itself can sometimes be a mission, especially when brands stick to black and white and smaller sizes. So when I find a brand that adds a little touch of uniqueness, whether it's color or design and makes sure to add bigger sizes for women with curves, I'm sure to go back to it, time and time again. 
That's where Marika comes in.

If you shop at TJMaxx or Marshalls then I'm sure you are pretty familiar with Marika.
 It is a brand that can be found in the Activewear section. You can also find them at
One thing that always calls my attention to them is the softness and fun prints. Yes, they also have black and grey but they will add fun pops of color or a cute design. It really makes a difference. 
If you grab a pair of their leggings you can feel the softness and stretchiness, something that I'm always making sure is a part of my workout clothes. 

Just look at their Abby Lazer Cut Ankle Leggings
Yes, they are black but that little lazer cut design makes a difference. It adds a hint of cuteness and more breathability. They made me want to go for a quick run, just so I could wear them.
The moment you touch these leggings you will feel the softness, and even though they are ankle length you can still use them during the Summer days. Made out of 90% Polyester and 10% Spandex means that they will move with you comfortably, no matter what you are doing.
You can also find a media pocket in the inner waistband part. Which is perfect for stashing your house key.

Being able to workout and feeling comfortably means a lot to me, especially when I'm still fighting with being completely comfortable in my own skin and with Summer here it can be hard to find tops that are breathable enough, yet help me feel comfortable while going out for a run during these very hot Summer days here in NYC. Before I start talking about this tee, let me just tell you that it is buttery soft. Yes, I'm using the word buttery. It is amazingly soft, which makes it that much more better for these hot sticky summer days. The tee material is 95% Rayon and 5% Spandex
Making it a super stretchy and breathable top, it is definitely one of my favorites for working out or just running around doing errands.
It is also available in Black :)

Having big boobs can be hard when it comes to shopping for workout bras. It's like brands think that us girls with bigger boobs don't want some cuteness or flirtiness to our workout bras and that can get to me sometimes. I will find a cute workout bra and then see it's not available in a bigger size, will make me steer clear of the brand because that means that they aren't catering for all sizes. And we all definitely come in different sizes.
Marika sports bra go up to size XL and are available in fun flirty styles.

With Summer here that might mean that it's time to put away the cold weather workout gear, if you haven't done so yet and buy some lighter gear for these hot days that are already upon us.

Right now they are offering some fun deals and you don't want to miss out on what might become a staple for you.

What is something that you always focus on when buying activewear?
