Modest Activewear that Isn't Skin Tight! Workout Wear for Hijabis

Posted on May 22, 2017

We all know how difficult it is to find activewear that's not skin-tight which is why I'm so excited to tell you all about these amazing finds! When it comes to work-out pants I'm all about these joggers from Abercrombie (also in cream & white, and score they're on sale! Their full collection of joggers are here, oh and you're gonna *love* these harem pants). They're great because they're roomy in the thigh and slim through the leg to allow for swift movement.

The top is also from Abercrombie and I love all the little details from the back logo to the drawstring at the bottom hem to the contrasting black buttons on the center pocket. I'm really into their other activewear tops here and here as well as these awesome hoodies here and here.

When I was in middle school and high school I was *obsessed* with Abercrombie. As I got older I almost outgrew the brand, but I've been getting back into it this past year (remember these outfits here and here?) What initially drew me to the brand was their quality and it's great to know nothing has changed on that front all these years later. What really made me feel comfortable shopping the brand again (especially as a hijabi considering the supreme court case) was knowing they're completely under new management headed up by a woman and their new brand president is female as well. I have to admit I was relieved to learn about their new policies and commitment to diversity.

My hijab is the Premium Jersey Wrap in Camel and they're the *only* hijabs I work out in. If you're doing rigorous physical activity I recommend you use pins under your neck and at the side. They're the best! xoxo, Mel
