Freestyle runners are either too pumped or sit with dampened spirits when monsoon arrives. They are either too excited about running, open to the possibility of a surprise refreshing rain shower in the middle of their work out, or dread getting drenched in a rain which pours heavier than their own sweat which leads to illness. While the former kind will go about their regime as is, the latter could use some motivation. We’ll provide it by telling you you can significantly reduce the chances of falling ill after a run in the rain through this one trick.
Instead of running in the rain wearing your regular cotton running wear, put on some poly spandex yarn made active wear and head out fearlessly. Why, though?
What happens when you work out in cotton gym wear?
The material of your clothes absorbs your sweat. The heat from your body and in air helps evaporate that sweat, normally, but during cool and humid monsoons the sweat gets trapped in your clothes and make them stick to your body causing you to fall sick. That’s where poly spandex yarn made active wear helps.
Polyester (Poly) fiber is known to repel water and spandex gives you desired freedom and stretch. So when you get active wear made from moisture wicking poly spandex yarn made fabric, you ensure that sweat is expelled from your body on to the surface of the fabric instead of staying on your skin. Naturally, the chances of catching a cold or falling ill due to prolonged exposure to damp clothes are reduced.
Did that lift your spirits? Run towards glory, enjoy monsoon the way it’s meant to be enjoyed!
If summer isn’t the perfect season for picnics and garden parties then when is? Since you’re going to be doing both this summer like the last, might as well do it with a bit of fresh fashion and functional garments on. Why functional? Well, you can’t go getting your legs cramped up in a tight skirt when you want to sit on the grass, and you must absolutely stay free of a Marilyn Monroe dress lift in the event of a sudden breeze flow when in the middle of a crowd. So here’s a list of fashionable and rather functional garments that we prepared keeping your need for fun and style in mind.
The Romper: if you want to show leg, let a possible breeze leave it tingling or just like rompers then rompers, also known as playsuits, are the perfect picnic wear. Since they are of mid-thigh level and above length, fitted hems on rompers would do well so that you don’t accidentally expose more than you intend to. Look for some great poly spandex or cotton spandex versions so that they provide ample stretch for free movement.
The Mom Jeans: These babies are a rage at the moment and for good reason. Don’t get us wrong we love the good old skinnies but the level of comfort offered by a regular cut mom jeans is out of the world, especially if you manage to get a high quality poly spandex one that offers the maximum comfort and superb style. P.S.- it’s also easy on the pocket.
Baggy Trousers: if it’s a formal garden party you must attend, there’s nothing like a stylish pair of baggy trousers that can keep you cool, comfortable and looking chic as if out of a summer catalogue. Linen is a baggy trousers staple but there are amazing cotton and synthetic variants available in the market for you to try on. We won’t push our love for poly spandex in this one!
If any of these summer picnic wear trends struck your fancy, then don’t fall behind, get them now!
For most, buying new active wear is bi-annual affair, there’s winter active-wear and there’s summer active-wear. Unfortunately, some people tend to buy active-wear throughout the year but not by choice; they are forced to buy it. You know why?
Well, after wearing it for some time and a couple of washes, they find that their active-wear has worn out– the stretch has left the structure, the color has faded & it doesn’t fit anymore
What if you could make your poly spandex active wear last long? Follow the below given simple steps-
– Always follow the washing instruction on the tag
– Try to wash your active wear softly, instead the use of hard rubbing & brushes.

– Avoid hanging your active wear from hangers, as it will cause them to lose their shape
– Don’t use too much detergent, as some of it gets left behind during the wash if the quantity is too much. Eventually setting in your active wear and cause it to degrade slowly due to the fungal growth in that area
– Wash mainly with cold water to make sure your active wear retains its shape and fit
