Now we were the first to laugh at the now famous active wear viral video yet, it’s hard to deny the benefits of the uniform de jour of Mums everywhere.
C’mon, what’s not to love? Easy to wash, easy to dry, easy to wear, no ironing required and as at home in the gym as it is on the street or at Aldi – the benefits of lycra and spandex are as obvious as they are undeniable.
The only down side? You can only wear so much black or Lorna Jane (awkward when your entire Mother’s group are wearing the same leggings to the café). Enter new active wear brand Your Island Supply.
Launched in late 2017, the brand is created by a husband and wife team Duncan and Dhanya who live, eat and sleep the ethos of the brand. The couple are activated as – dividing their time between Noosa in Queensland and Manly in NSW, the surfing enthusiasts saw an opportunity to create tropical-inspired, functional active wear and have run with ball.
According to Dhanya,“I wanted to mix things up a bit. I see so many women wearing plain leggings when they train in and out of the gym. I personally wanted to wear colourful vibrant active wear that made me feel happy when I wear them and in turn motivates me to exercise.”
And so it was.
The result are offerings that are multi-coloured, loud and tropical-luxe and range in length, including 7/8 length and ‘crop’. We’ve included a few of our favourites for your drooling pleasure.
