Girlfriend Collective LITE vs. Compressive leggings review

Girlfriend Collective LITE vs. Compressive leggings review

Hi friends! It’s been a long time coming, but after extensive testing I’m excited to finally share my thoughts on Girlfriend Collective’s LITE leggings.

The LITE leggings are the softer baby sister of Girlfriend’s classic compressive leggings. Made out of recycled fishing nets rather than recycled water bottles, the material is thinner and more breathable for higher impact activities.

The website has mixed reviews, so I was apprehensive myself about springing for a pair—but Girlfriend generously offered to send me a pair of LITE leggings to test out since so many of you were asking about them!

If you haven’t heard of Girlfriend Collective, they were the brand blowing up the internet last year with their scammy-sounding “free leggings” (you just had to pay $20 for shipping from Vietnam and wait like 4 months lol). HOWEVER, they are not a scam (yay), and actually make high-quality athletic wear from recycled water bottles in responsible factories. They’re launching their full line this summer with their internet-famous leggings and new sports bras in drool-worthy colors.

Cupro: The magical sustainable fabric you’ve never heard of

Being into sustainable and ethical fashion has made me into a bit of a textile geek. After all, there are so many cool sustainable fabrics! Who knew you could make fabric out of recycled water bottles and fishing nets?

So when I found out about Cupro fairly recently, I was surprised that I didn’t already know about it. Girlfriend Collective sent me a couple of their new Cupro tees, and I immediately fell in love with the miraculously soft and eco-friendly fabric…so much so that I had to learn more about Cupro and share what I’ve learned about this magical fabric with you all!

I asked if I should review the Girlfriend Collective Monroe sports bra in my Insta stories, and 87% of you said yes! Sorry not sorry to the 13% of you who are freakin’ tired of me raving about this brand…gotta give the people what they want!
