Matalan Activewear Review*


As most of you will know, I’m a little bit of a fitness fanatic, and when I say that I mean I absolutely adore it, and one of my favourite things is having gorgeous workout clothes to make me feel incredible while I workout. You can never have too many and I’m always on the lookout for clothes that are value for money, but are also worth the money that you pay. I for one know that a lot of people cannot afford to spend a lot of money on workout clothes, and Matalan have just bought out one of the most beautiful ranges I’ve seen. There is a lot of choice too which can sometimes be the most difficult thing ever when it comes to finding workout clothes.



This is my fabulous outfit from the incredible team at Matalan! Now I am sure that you will want to know all about how this wonderful pieces and how they stood up to the Amie workout test. Ready? Let’s go.


The Sweat Test

Now honestly when I workout I do sweat a lot and it is important that I wear clothes that are quick drying but also durable, the last thing you want when you workout is to be drowned and have your clothes sticking to you and being dragged down. These clothes however did incredibly well, they were quick drying, they were durable, not only that they also kept me warm if I was outside working out like doing my yoga so it gave me the best of both worlds.

With the arm band which allows you to put your mobile phone in there safely while you workout, that also lasted the sweat test, it was fabulous, my phone stayed safe and it was really easy for me to be able to change what music I was listening to if need be.


These are so comfy! The fabulous thing about these is the fact that they move with you, the material is so light, and with the hoodie, it really does have a breathable fabric that doesn’t make you feel like you’re in a cocoon so that you can’t move. I would 100% recommend these as workout clothes.

With the arm band however it is incredibly comfortable, it does take some time to get used to during a workout, however it is brilliant and it doesn’t slip at all!

Overall Thoughts

These items are perfect for workouts, if you’re just starting out on your fitness journey, or you’re a fitness fanatic then there is something for absolutely everyone in this collection.
