Missguided launched its brand new sportswear a week or so ago, so I thought it would be best to give it the once over before you decide to buy. Obviously Missguided is known for its mega cheap prices and the Missguided Active range is no different with a sports bra costing as little as £9.00.
Now, if you’re anything like me that price screams “Stay away! Bad quality!”…. BUT it’s a lot better than I expected. I like to be honest about the sportswear I review otherwise what’s the point, so here goes! I’m not sure who did the fitting for the legging sizes, but I’d definitely recommend buying one size down from your normal size. I’m normally a size 8, and even the size 6 aren’t completely snug the whole way down. Obviously that’s not the end of the world, as long as the waist band fits and the leggings stay up, which they did when I threw myself upside-down this morning in the gym.
Oddly, the sizing of the sports bra and sweatshirt are great and if like me you don’t need much support around the chest area (sad face! 😉 ), then you’ll be fine with the bras. I personally wouldn’t recommend going for a long run in it due to support, but for a gym session it was a good’un – comfy, fitted with a pretty criss-cross back.
In terms of the styles MissGuided Active does well – there were numerous prints that I liked, but this purple beauty grabbed my attention first. I don’t think MissGuided will be offended when I say that if you’re looking for technical sportswear this isn’t the brand for you, but if you’re looking for something fun, cheap and good-looking, then I’d definitely pop on over there and make an order.
