A (long) while back I was able to connect with Alex from DA Active, a company specializing in women’s lifestyle-inspired activewear. I have been dying to show you what Alex sent me to try out! A couple of the pieces are the exact same as the one’s Electra reviewed a little while back. It was a complete fluke, I swear!
Before I start, “DA” stands for “do it again” – from their website, “put positive things into your life…then do it again.” I love that.
First up: the Braided Tank (in lilac)
I fell in love with this style as soon as I saw it on the website. It is so different from anything else I own. I really love the braided detailing in the back and the longer length of the top. It doesn’t ride up when I’m running or lifting weights. And the colour? Pretty perfect if you ask me!
Next up: the DA Jacket (in lilac)
Once again, I really loved the colour of this. I like that I kind of have a little matching set. The jacket is perfect to throw on before or after the gym and like the tank, has a really nice length. I wasn’t sure what size to get when I ordered this, as Alex had told me that the sizes run small. I usually take a 0-2 in everything but she suggested I get the jacket in a size 6. The sleeves are a little on the big side but it’s really comfortable and I don’t feel restricted in it at all.
Finally: the DA Fold Over Pant (in grey marle)
Okay I know I said I loved the first two pieces but these pants are amazing. I cannot even describe the feeling of the fabric. They are stretchy but they feel so soft at the same time. They were too long for me so I had to get them shortened (bonus for you tall women – I know it can be hard to find pants long enough!) but it was totally worth it. I don’t even feel like I’m wearing pants when I have them on! Is that weird? My favourite feature is the fold over waist. There is no digging or pinching of the skin. The band lies really flat and is super flattering. There is also a little pocket on the inside (shown above) which is great to carry ID, money, etc. I love pockets!
These three items had me sold on DA Active! They are cute, comfy, and very well-priced (in my opinion) for the fantastic quality. The tank retails for $44, the jacket for $63, and the pants for $69.
Thank you so much, Alex, for the opportunity to review the fantastic pieces of apparel! They are amazing!
