apifeni Activewear is the revolutionary activewear that was born out of Danielle Dobin's vision to meld activewear together with shapewear. Danielle, a former lawyer, fitness enthusiast and mom of two, had her "apifeni" (pronounced "epiphany") after having a baby when she realized that there was a dearth of activewear that was both functional and flattering, especially for moms and women over 30 who prefer a little more coverage. So she created her own!
All the apifeni bottoms utilise the ShapeTech™ waist technology, a nylon/spandex/elastane blend that provides compressive support from the hips to just below the sports bra, making the core appear a whole size smaller!
SoftTech™ (a supplex nylon/lycra blend) is the high performance fabric that is used in these activewear bottoms.
So whether you are just getting back into shape after pregnancy or just having a bloated day these are the pants for you. Additionally, they maintain the flexibility to move in whatever direction you do. No more worries about exposing skin while bending over a barre or doing a yoga inversion.
I had the chance to attend the apifeni Trunk show earlier this week at Equinox and chat with Danielle who was at hand to give me a personalized fitting. There were a host of gorgeous, colorful tops. I tried on the Sporty Tank in, what Danielle told me was a color made specifically for her line, the apifeni pink. I loved the top! I found it to be very flattering, lightweight and comfortable.
Next, I wanted to try the bottoms and see what this revolutionary ShapeTech™ technology was all about. I tried the Vinyasa capri pants. The compressive ShapeTech™ fabric came right upto my ribs and gave me a smooth, seamless silhouette, with no bumps visible underneath my top. Also, I found that the pants did a great job of holding everything in around the hip and thigh area.
|Modelling is clearly not my forte!|
I can't wait for my own pair of vinyasa capri pants to arrive so that I can put them to the test and report back. I fell in love with the Sporty tank and bought one on the spot and am quite happy with the purchase!
For those of you in the NYC area there are two additional trunk show dates where Danielle will be available for personalized fittings.
