Kydra Singapore Activewear Review

I tried these activewear brand from Singapore and here’s what I think.

Kydra Singapore Review

The Brand

Kydra was founded by Dingyao Wong and Jimmy Poh who had the idea of creating the “perfect pair of shorts for every city athlete" inspired by their own experiences as athletes in Singapore's modern and urban society. This led them to design Kydra’s first product, the “Kydra Flex Shorts”, in 2016. The "Kydra Flex Shorts" was a pair of men's gym shorts that could also double up as casual shorts.

We created Kydra for people like us. Our plans and schedules are constantly changing. One moment you’re in a business meeting, and next you’re in the gym for yoga. What you wear should be versatile and adaptable for the different situations you may face as you go about your day. You shouldn’t have to plan your day around worrying about how many outfits you need, when you can just bring one.

Kydra Navy Softer-Than-You Tank 3 Review

PROs:

  • I love how they played with the design of this tank. It’s  like they know that women will love this!
  • Length is perfect.
  • Chic,  Lightweight & subtly sexy.

CONs:

I wore/tested this tank during my BACK day (a lot of weightlifting/no cardio) and after my workout, my chest is soaking wet and I don’t like it. It feels like the tank soaked with sweat and stayed there. So you really need to change after a workout. I’ve experienced this in some of the big brands and I think that (it can a personal choice but ) it’s not my cup of tea. I prefer the Nylon-Spandex combination.

NAVY HERA BRA

Kydra_Navy Hera Bra Review berryduchess

Kydra Navy Hera Bra 2 Review berryduchess

Product Description:

  • Constructed from our signature fabric
  • buttery soft, medium-support bra with elastic capabilities
  • removable padding and bands that will not flip in the wash.

Material/Fabric:

  • 87% Nylon
  • 13% Spandex

Available Colour/s:

  • Blue
  • Black
  • Forest Green

When I was browsing their products and found this bra, I already know I want one because of the design. I don’t have anything similar to this and so I gave in. But I also had doubts, because remember, I got problems with Asian sizes and based on the photos, I can tell that the size runs smaller. When I checked their size for this Navy Hera Black, they only got S, M, and L so I got L.

Soft but…

In my opinion, this is NOT BUTTERY SOFT. Trust me, I know my activewear.

Size

So I am wearing a LARGE and obviously, this bra runs a size smaller. Check my photo so you can see the spillover on the armpit area and the girls are a bit squished. Yes, it fits but I can’t wear this if I have PMS. And because it’s a size smaller, the bands would flip/fold when I move.

*NTS: this cut is not flattering on my body so I really should stop buying this!

As much as I love the design (back) and functionality (medium support) it’s unfortunate that this is my least favourite from this purchase.

VERDICT

In my humble opinion, Kydra has a lot of potentials, but at the same time, they need to improve on things like sizing. Their sizes will best fit the small/petite frames but not for those with large frames like myself. 

So I’m excited to see this brand to grow and be more inclusive.

I strongly believe that activewear should be flexible (size included) because fitness comes in different sizes. Not everyone wears a size 0-4 and just because one got a large frame, doesn’t mean they don’t exercise.

3-out-of-5-stars

If I were to rate the products that I bought from them, I’d give it an average of 3 stars. 

There goes my review for the Kydra Singapore activewear! Thanks for your time and until my next review.
