Have you ever noticed that athletic clothing tends to be boring? Just because you are active and exercising doesn’t mean you don’t want clothes that have prints and color. To help with this YMX by Yellowman makes high quality athletic wear that tries to bridge the gap between athletic and fashion wear. The patterns are based on tribal art, so instead of boring beige or black it is vibrantly colored and stands out.
I received the YMX Flower Clouds Sun Tee to review. This is a long sleeved shirt brings together tribal and Asian artwork for a colorful spring look. You can wear it as a base layer, by itself for athletic activities or even just as a t-shirt you wear to the store. I was a little unsure about this shirt when it came, because it is very bright, and I tend to be kind of boring when I pick clothes. But once I tried it on I loved it. The pattern really works and it is so busy it draws attention away from my figure flaws. I’m not usually willing to model clothes for my blog, but this one I liked enough to let my daughter take my picture and post it.
In addition to looking good, it is also extremely comfortable. It is made of MadKool fabric, which is designed to breathe and wick away unwanted moisture – all the things you need in athletic wear. It stretches and is lightweight. We are going canoeing next week and this shirt is perfect for that, because it dries quickly and it is designed to regulate your natural body temperature. You will stay warm in cool weather activities, and cool when your heart is pumping. The shirt has an SPF of 50+, so it also works as comfortable and fashionable sun protection.
I think it is a great idea to make athletic wear that looks good. It is perfect for someone with an active lifestyle since you can wear it almost anywhere. It does fit snuggly, so if you prefer a relaxed fit they suggest you order a size up from your normal size. I am very pleased with this shirt and I know I am going to be wearing it frequently – when we go biking, canoeing, relaxing on the boat and just around the house when I want something lightweight and comfortable. The YMX shirts are not cheap, and this one retails for $89. But that is a reasonable price for a shirt made of this kind of advanced moisture wicking fabric, and typically what you would pay for a shirt that doesn’t look nearly this good.
