Vol 2 - Three Questions To Ask Before Buying Sportswear

Three Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before Investing in Sportswear.

When you're on the lookout for the perfect sportswear item to add to your collection, there are a few things you should stop and consider before splashing your cash...

1. Will it last?

While this question might not be the first that comes to mind when browsing, it's one that should definitely be considered, for two reasons.

Firstly, to save you money! If the item isn't durable, then it won't be long  before you will have to buy again. You'll end up throwing away that pair of shorts  that have torn at the seam or the faded gym top that looks older than it is.

When looking into sportswear brands, ensure they test for wash and durability during exercise so you know you are buying sportswear that will last.

Secondly throwing your sportswear items in the bin is neither good for your wallet nor the planet. By wearing Balmanno, you are not only buying sportswear that will last, you're supporting us in our mission to make the world a better place, one workout at a time.


2. What kind of fabric is it?

The support for sustainable brands is continuing to grow. Environmentally conscious consumers are looking to brands to offer sustainable solutions for the products they know and love. Looking for a fabric that is both breathable and eco-friendly is fast becoming a key motivator when deciding where to spend your money.

At Balmanno our sportswear is made out of 100% recycled plastic. It's then spun into fabric which is light-weight, breathable and fast drying. While our designs are made with the environment in mind, we don’t compromise on the quality. 

3. Does it make you feel good? 

Last, but by no means least, buying multi-purpose clothing is a great way to reduce waste and save money. While it's important to buy sportswear that is designed to support your exercise regime, it's also important to ask yourself if the clothing makes you feel good. Does it make you feel confident? If the answer is yes, it's more likely you will get the most out of it.

Over the last year we have all swapped our jeans for track pants and sportswear has fast become the outfit of choice. With comfort as a motivator, sportswear has become much more than gym wear. We have designed our clothing with this in mind and created stylish, minimalistic pieces suitable to be worn anywhere. Our clothing is form-fitting, breathable and has stretch, allowing you to look good while performing at your best.
