ABOUT THE FIT & FUNCTION

  • No-slip fit: Our heat-activated grippy elastic helps these stay-put power from the start line to the finish line. For best results put these on like a pair of nylons, scrunch them down and work them up, placing the grip elastic where it feels best – on the hipbones. The stretch in the material should feel like it is going around the body and not pulling down from the bottom. If too big they may slip a little prior to warming up; generate some body heat, reset and they will stay put for the rest of your sweat session!
  • High-waisted: Our wide waistband creates a smooth look under tops and a stealth place for two cell phone-sized pockets – no one needs to know you brought your phone until it saves the day.
  • Beat the bloat: If you suffer belly bloat during workouts as we do, you will love the lighter and more stretchy material used for the waistband. No more feeling like an encased sausage.
  • Anti-camel toe: Designed by a new mom, these are meant to sit away from this sometimes-sensitive area of the body. Tip: the stay-put elastic is very grippy and these could ride up if the waistband is pulled up too high, just place it lower to prevent this from occurring.
  • Fur-friendly: dirt and pet hair easily brush off this materialhowever claws can get caught in knit materials so be careful as per our T.L.C. instructions below.
  • H20 compatible: These do not sag and get heavy when wet, making them ideal for running in the rain, hot yoga, SUP, under your ski pants and more, plus they dry super fast.
  • Inseam Lengths: 32” for all sizes
  • How they feel: medium weight, compressive (snug like a hug) and silky smooth.
  • How to wear them: this fabric is not completely squat-proof and is best worn with seamless skin colour undergarments.
  • Perfect for you: make sure these check all the boxes by visiting our product comparison chart.

DESIGN INSPIRATION

Wildflowers like these still flourish in the fields where the battles of WW1 and WW2 were fought. Despite it's vibrant hue, the red poppy is worn on Remembrance Day in Canada as a grave symbol of the brave soldiers who gave their lives. These flowers were a common sight as they flourished in the churned soil ridden with fallen soldiers. We hope this print will spark introspection and conversation on war and world conflicts, both past and present, and what collective actions we might take to stand up for others while first striving for peaceful conflict resolution.

It was designed by our founder on the news her grandfather, a WW2 veteran, was expected to pass away. It's creation was an act of practicing gratitude for her grandfathers service in the war and a desire to better understand what he fought for and why, and would she fight for the same cause, and how? In the process she learned many military members serve as peacekeepers, something she strives to be.

A PRINT FOR THE PEOPLE

For every purchase we'll be donating $1 to the Poppy Fund in support of Canada's veterans and their families. Bewildher has made additional donations to woundedwarriorscanada.ca and The Aboriginal Veteran's Scholarship TrustAre you a veteran?

MORE ABOUT THE SYMBOLISM IN THIS PRINT

The symbolism in this print is controversial and may be viewed as offensive to some depending on their history and experiences. We feel it's important those customers wearing it be aware of the significance of the symbolism. The peace sign, as shown in this print, was originally designed by Gerald Holtom for the British campaign against nuclear disarmament. Many military members were and are against nuclear warfare. Our use of it is honoring the efforts of the Canadian veterans against nuclear warfare memorial. However, after it's creation this symbol was later adopted by the American peace movement against the Vietnam war, in combination with the "V" peace-sign hand gesture, and may be viewed as offensive to those American veterans who served in that war.

The red poppy is also viewed as offensive to some veterans who believe it's message has deviated from it's original meaning and is now being used by political figures to glorify and justify war. Some of these veterans wear white poppies instead, as a symbol of peace. They assert there is a difference between the wars at the beginning of the 20th century, in which Commonwealth Nations fought against fascism and unthinkable atrocity, and the wars of aggression today, which can sometimes seem unjustifiable. This print is showing the flowers that grew on the battlefields in their true colors during WW1 and WW2, and we hope all those who wear this print think critically of their meaning.

As a brand we believe the more we seek to understand, prior to taking offense, the stronger our ability to work collaboratively with others becomes. While individual opinions, experiences and methods may differ, what's important is the common goal of making the world a safer and better place for all.

"Peace is not just absence of conflict, peace is the creation of an environment where all can flourish." - Nelson Mandela
