Hey wild girl! We know you like taking risks, but - when ordering online - it is always a great idea to thoroughly read the product description. Ours is below ↓
This is a special-edition print featuring the city of Vancouver and marathon motivation for every mile, designed especially to be ready in time for the BMO Vancouver Marathon happening May 5th. What's really cool is the motivational messages are truly meant for YOU - as you race you'll be able to look down and read them right side up. To everyone else they just look like stripes in the print! Place your pre-order now to guarantee your size and you'll be able to pick them up from Bewildher's booth at the race expo.
These leggings are a pre-order as part of our slow-fashion initiative. You get over 20% OFF when you pre-order and they'll be ready to ship/pick-up May 3rd. The pre-sale discount ends April 30th. Any remaining pairs will be available for sale at the BMO Marathon Expo May 3rd and 4th.
WHAT YOU GET
- A no-slip grip elastic that sits on your hips where it won't pinch and prevents them from slipping.
- A thin elastic at the top so they never stretch out.
- A conveniently placed waistband pocket big enough for your phone - and keys, cards, gels and cash.
- A high-waisted fit that's both flattering and comfortable - you won't feel like an encased sausage, we promise!
- Made from a high-quality compression material that smooths out bumps and helps support bouncing muscles.
- A crotch fit that doesn't crowd your lady bits.
- A gusset - that little triangle piece in the crotch - to provide a greater range of motion. Ours is lined with an anti-bacterial material.
- Fabric that is H20 friendly! The leggings won't get heavy when wet and they dry really fast - so run in the rain and jump in all the puddles!
- Vinyl transfers with text "I run this city" and "Vancouver" down each leg. ***Disclosure*** These transfers will either be reflective (fingers crossed) or silver metallic. There is a peel-off concern with the silver reflective option but we are in full-on testing mode as we know how cool that would be! If "Vancouver" has no relevance to your location just request "No Vancouver" in the comments when you place your order.
WHAT YOU GIVE
- There are approximately 3.4 recycled plastic bottles in every pair, certified by the Global Recycling Standard.
- We plant a tree in British Columbia for every pair we make, in partnership with One Tree Planted.
- 1% of every sale is donated to non-profit environmental initiatives.
- Every purchase raises $1 to help a teenage girl attend wilderness camp, in partnership with Girl In The Wild.
- The anti-bacterial fabric treatment is made from sea shells recycled from the restaurant industry.
- The graphics are transferred onto the material using recycled paper.
- Our printing process is called "cut panel sublimation" which means no dye is wasted, no harsh chemicals are used and the print will be in the same place on every pair.
- The seamstresses who will sew these leggings are paid fair wages.
- All hang-tags are made from 100% recycled paper.
- They will be shipped in a box that's 60% recycled - and looks nice so please reuse it!
ABOUT THE FIT
- HIGH-WAISTED: These high-waisted leggings fit to the smallest part of the waist for a flattering fit on their own or under a fitted t-shirt.
- ANTI-CAMEL TOE: The crotch is designed to sit away from your lady bits, helping to prevent camel toe and take the pressure off a sometimes sensitive area - we got your back momma's!
- NO - SLIP FIT: These are made from a 4-way stretch compression material and thus should be put on like a pair of nylons - scrunch them down and slide them up - rather than pulling from the top. The stretch should be going around the leg, but not pulling down. When pulled on correctly the internal grip elastic works wonders to keep them from slipping - a runners dream, no more hiking up mid-marathon! Please note in really cold dry weather - temperatures below zero - they may slip slightly until some body heat is generated from activity. If this happens just reset after your warm-up and you'll be good the rest of your workout!
OUR 'PEARL' MATERIAL IS . . .
- 300gsm mid-weight 88% recycled polyester / 12% spandex.
- Silky-smooth and has a matte-glossy look just like a pearl.
- Long-lasting and looks new wash after wash.
- Sea-friendly featuring an all-natural anti-bacterial treatment.
- The trifecta of technical must-haves; compression, wicking and anti-odor!
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Machine wash cold gentle cycle, tumble dry low or hang to dry. ***Important*** Please cold water soak before first wear to set the ink. Sweating in the leggings prior to soaking them in cold water could cause the ink to shift. Once the ink is set this will not occur.
PRODUCT LIMITATIONS: Due to the graphics being printed onto white material it is highly recommended this product only be worn with solid nude colored undergarments. Darker, brighter and patterned undergarments may show through. The print is also a surface treatment, so it is best to avoid rubbing against hard and abrasive surfaces that could wear off the ink and damage the material - such as sliding down rocks, contact with velcro and crawling on knees. As mentioned above we are hoping to do the text in silver reflective - as requested by our fans. These are an iron-on transfer and the non-stretch transfer doesn't always work well with stretchy material. We are testing and have our fingers crossed - if you order these leggings and the corners of the text peel up, please bust out that iron collecting dust in your closet and press them back down.
