PopFlex Active Wear Review By Berryduchess

PopFlex Activewear Review

My PopFlex Active Wear review is finally here!!! I’m thrilled to share it with you just before 2017 ends and so read more below. 🙂

The Brand

PopFlex Active is a business owned by Cassey Ho (also the creator of Blogilates) and her  goal:

My goal with POPFLEX is to have the highest degree of quality at a price point that will not barricade women from enjoying top-notch, high-tech fabrics and artistic design. 

Ordering Process:

The ordering process is easy. Just do the following:

  1. Go to PopFlex Active website.
  2. Click the SIGN IN at the upper left corner of the screen.
  3. Create a New Account if you’re a new client and simply choose Log In and supply your username & password if you’ve already created an account before.
  4. Just follow the easy steps and after you’ve set up your account, you are now ready to shop online.

For new clients, I think they offer a discount code worth 10% that you can use on your first order. Tho’ I’m not sure if this is a seasonal/promotional thing. It usually pops up on your screen so you’ll never miss it. 😀

After you confirm the order, you’ll be directed to the page shown below and they provide a link on how to check your order status.

  • They don’t come in a box.
  • The activewear are placed in an individual, clear plastic with tags on.
  • Comes with a Welcome Card from Cassey

  • Sports Bra 
    • Under Armour – Large

Danger Tank in Night & Cabernet

Danger Tank_Night_Review_berryduchess

In my opinion, US 10 will be fine but considering the PMS days when my chest is tender, bigger and at their most uncomfortable state – a size bigger (Size 12) is a good call. These are very important factors to take note because if you wear the wrong size, not only that they can hurt you, but the discomfort can annoy the hell out of you, that can lead to a decision of skipping your workout for the day.

In my opinion, US 10 will be fine but considering the PMS days when my chest is  tender, bigger and at their most uncomfortable state – a size bigger is a good call.

Features:

  • Removable push-up bra cups
  • Shrink and fade resistant material
  • Breathable, sweat wicking fabric
  • Ultimate stretch and recovery
  • Stamped on size & care label – so no itchy, bulky tags.

Available Colours:

  • Night/Black
  • Cabernet/Brick Red

Danger Tank - Cabernet by PopFlex Review by Berryduchess

PROs:

Fit & Quality:

Okay, so let’s begin with the premise that each body is unique because we’re not like dolls/mannequins manufactured in a factory, okay? So in my case, It’s like I’m a size 12 on the bra cup, but a size 8 on the fabric around the middle part. I hope you’re getting my point here. 😭 Is it a big issue? NOPE.

I simply love the design of these tank tops because they are beautiful, sexy yet very feminine.

Design & Performance:

  • Again, these were aesthetically pleasing without compromising the performance.
  • I simply love the design of these tank tops because they are beautiful, sexy yet very feminine.
  • Since the design cinches the waist, it’s forgiving on the hips. I say it gives an hourglass illusion and we all want that! 😀

Wishing Star Capri_Plum and Danger Tank Review_berryduchess

CONs:

I like that they used a large zipper on the back but it’s not the best when you’re doing floor exercises. But i’m giving Popflex a point here because they made sure to point out that the Danger Tank is “best for workouts like running, kickboxing, HIIT where you are not constantly on your back, as the zipper on the neck may be sensitive for some wearers.”

Again, these are beautiful tanks but I’m not sure if I can wear it in a gym…yet. It’s a personal choice really. I find it super sexy for chesty ladies and if you’re not used to the attention, you may feel a little uncomfortable. Again, PERSONAL CHOICE ladies, okay? As long as you’re comfortable with what you wear, you do you.

Wishing Star Capri – Plum

Wishing Star Capri_Plum Review_berryduchess

According to PopFlex website, this style runs slightly smaller, so it’s best to order a size up and I got a Size 10. 

Features:

  • High quality, buttery soft Moss fabric with slight compression
  • Shrink and fade resistant
  • Breathable, sweat wicking
  • Ultimate stretch and recovery – no sag, ever.

Available Colours:

  • Plum
  • Night

Fabric:

  • Moss: 87% polyester, 13% spandex
  • Power Mesh: 84% nylon, 16% spandex

Wishing Star Capri_Plum_Review_berryduchess

PROs:

Fit & Quality:

  • Good fit and they were not kidding when they advised to order a size up, so better follow that.
  • The material is soft & but in my opinion, Lululemon leggings are softer and this was based on the leggings that I’ve tried on before.

Aesthetically pleasing without compromising the performance.

Design & Performance:

  • Aesthetically pleasing without compromising the performance.
  • I didn’t experience any folding on the waistband while doing yoga/pilates position.
  • The mesh was not itchy or scratchy at all.

CONs:

I have nothing for this product. 🙂

Adventure Zip Legging – Cabernet

Danger Tank & Adventure Zip Leggings in Cabernet by PopFlex Review 2 by Berryduchess

Popflex advised the same for this legging but I decided to follow my usual size (US 8). The side pockets can fit your phone, even the large ones like the iPhone 7S+/Galaxy Note 8.

PROs:

Fit & Quality:

  • Tho’ I didn’t get a size higher, it was still a great fit.
  • The length is just about right.

  • It was comfortable and I didn’t experience any folding on the waistband while doing yoga/pilates position.

Pointe Legging – Snow White

POPFLEX_POINTE LEGGING_SNOW WHITE_Review_Berryduchess

A white pair of leggings….yes. I did it. I got my very first pair of white leggings.

If we talk about body insecurities, I’m very sure that my legs will be one of them. Why? because they are LOGS, baby! I kinda have manly legs so you see, getting a light-coloured legging was a taboo for me. But this time, I decided to break that and purchase the Pointe Legging in Snow White in US 8.

Features:

  • Pockets!
  • High quality, ultra soft double sided “moss” fabric with a cotton-like feel
  • Shrink and fade resistant material
  • Breathable, sweat wicking fabric
  • Ultimate stretch and recovery – no sag, ever.
  • Stamped on size & care label – so no itchy, bulky tags.

POPFLEX_POINTE LEGGING_SNOW WHITE_Review 3_Berryduchess

PROs:

Fit & Quality:

  • I find this to be a bit loose but I’m not sure if US 6 will be the perfect fit as it may be too tight. But I can work it out with US 8.
  • The material is soft & but in my opinion, Lululemon leggings are softer and this was based on the leggings that I’ve tried on before.

Design & Performance:

  • Aesthetically pleasing without compromising the performance.
  • It was comfortable and I didn’t experience any folding on the waistband while doing yoga/pilates position.
  • The mesh was not itchy or scratchy at all.

See my workout video here.

CONs:

Length

The length is a bit long for my height that no matter how I pull it up around my waist, it was still long. And because of that, there’s a ruching/folds towards the ankle. Then I checked their official photos from the website and noticed that it’s just how it looks on the model. Of course, it’s not really a huge deal, but reviews should include the complete deets so I’m sharing my thoughts on it. 🙂

VERDICT

I understand that it’s a bit scary to order online, especially if you haven’t tried their clothes but these are true to their size. If you’re still unsure, just check the measurement of your current sportswear and see the match on their website.

Overall, I am happy and satisfied with my purchase. I feel that you’re getting great quality at half the price compared with the famous yoga apparel brands. And boy,  they can really be pricey! But these PopFlex Active Wear are in the same price range with other sports brand like Under Armour.

As a customer, I felt that each apparel was designed meticulously & tested to see if they will really work. And I appreciate that a lot. This brand cares about their clients.

Will you recommend it?

Definitely! In fact, I got a lot of praises while wearing them and I make sure to let them know that I’m wearing a PopFlex Active apparel.

There goes my review for the PopFlex Active Wear and excited to share more of this kind of reviews in the future. So what do you think?
