Albion Fit :: Fitness & Leisure Apparel -- Review, Exclusive Discount & Giveaway {Ends 5/26}




I love it when an apparel company understands what women want when it comes to fit, comfort, and functionality. With the fast pace of today we need clothing that works for a variety of tasks, therefore limiting the need to change our outfits several times a day. From a quick jaunt to the grocery store, a coffee break with friends, or a low-impact workout, Albion Fit has you covered for morning until night.

"Albion's mission is to provide women with the most luxurious, flattering, and hassle-free fitness and leisure apparel on the market."

I originally stumbled upon Albion Fit while looking into modest swimwear companies. What I found was not only some adorable one-piece suits and adorably feminine tankinis, but stylish workout clothing from a family-owned company. They are also committed to the environment and community through green manufacturing processes, and fair labor practices for a sustainable work environment.
I had the pleasure of receiving the review the Go Long Crew with Thumb Holes in Jade to review from Albion Fit. Just like this top's description, the Poly/rayon/spandex blend material is definitely a silky texture and is really comfortable against your skin. I requested an XS although I could've easily gotten away with a Small size for a more free flowing fit. However, as a lightweight layering top I prefer the more fitted look, although the material is still plenty stretchy so I can move freely during any activity. The length of the body is plenty long, a feature that can be difficult to find in tops. I also like that the crew neck isn't too high or constricting.
This top has a lot of versatility, so I'm excited to get lots of wear out of it. It's great as a cool, transitional top as the weather warms up, but also as a layering piece for cold weather. On cooler, brisk morning walks this summer, the Go Long Crew will be perfect for throwing on over a camisole or sports bra for more coverage, without adding extra bulk or weight. Going casual or for a more fitness apparel look is so easy!

My entire life I've always been one to get cold easily, so I tend to always pull long sleeves half way down my hands. I'm to the point where I purposefully buy long-sleeve tops that have extra long sleeves so I can easily do this! With the Go Long Crew, the addition of the thumb holes is quite simply genius. It quickly solves my problem of shorter sleeves that don't keep my hands warm. I have long arms and yet didn't feel like it was difficult or a stretch to pull the sleeves down to put my thumbs through. I can also still wear the Go Long Crew without my thumbs in the holes if I don't want to.
I realize that computer monitor settings can cause major variations in color, but I was pleasantly surprised to see the color Jade actually be darker and more like a deep teal with a green tone than a lighter aqua blue like I thought it would be. It's a beautiful color among a great variety of colors available in this style. Through editing I think it's going to appear more blue than it actually is (I tried to get it right!). It's definitely more of a teal green to me.

Needless to say, I love my new Go Long Crew from Albion Fit. It's well made, definitely afforable, and a great versatile piece for your wardrobe whether you workout often or just enjoy lounging in comfort with a nice book. Next time you're in the market for women's fitness and swimwear, be sure to check them out!
