Today my Trimommy Fave is WHOOHA GEAR. WHOOHA stands for Women Having Optimistic Objectives & Heathy Attitudes, and their motto is Play Hard - Take Chances - Keep Smilin'. (I know...how can you not love them already!) I came across Whooha Gear at the Irongirl expo, and was fortunate enough to meet the president of the company, Julie, who, is a very nice woman, and, as it turns out, a phenomonal triathlete who totally kicked my butt with quite a bit of grace during the race!! (She told me she had to work hard to keep up with my on the bike leg, but I'm pretty sure she was just being nice!) I loved their line of clothing for active women immediately. It is cute, it is funny, it is inspirational, and it is much needed.
Julie was kind enough to send me a shirt to test for all of you. Here is what I chose:
Here is a close-up of what the shirt says. I love it. (In fact, the first time I read it, I got kind of teary....I know...overly-emotional...but hey, love me or leave me.)
The shirt is dri-balance material. Here is what their website says about dri-balance: Dri-Balance optimizes the transport of moisture from skin to the surface of the garment, 6-10 times faster than other wicking garments. The material is very soft and cottony, so I wasn't so sure about the wicking properties, but I taught a spin class in it, and felt great and definitely not dripping after an hour. I then took it off to run, and by the time I was done, it was almost completely dry. I washed and dried it with no shrinkage, and then wore it to yoga and also to bed with extreme comfort in both.
