When I posted my Instagram fitness brand test a couple of weeks back I did not expect to receive the feedback I got. You all seemed to absolutely love the idea and I got a lot of messages asking for part II. So here were are. This is part two of my Instagram fitness brand test. And this time I tried two brands that you guys recommended to me on Instagram.
BumBum is a German lifestyle- and fitness brand focusing on girly and cute designs and comfortable fits. They are mainly known for working with big influencers on Instagram. They not only sell gym wear but also bikinis, shirts and lifestyle clothes. I was kindly sent a set of leggings, bra and crop top for review. The fabric is really nice quality and super soft. The set I own is partly made from cotton. Hence I would recommend it for lighter, low impact activities, such as yoga or hiking.
For those, I do love clothes, though. The fabric feels really nice on your skin and gives you plenty of room to breathe and move. I was pleasantly surprised by the price considering how nice the clothes feel. However, if you like doing sports that leave you sweaty I would not recommend the brand as I personally feel like the pants did not give me enough support and the fabric is not super absorbent and breathable.
Price: Leggings 50€, Shirt 25€, Bra 30€
Additional Info: Suited for lighter low impact activities, such as yoga or hiking.

Oceans Apart *
Oceans Apart is another brand that seems to be everyone’s darling on Instagram. They work with a lot of fitness/lifestyle influencers and have managed to build an empire through their social media accounts. The brand is not the most affordable and a lot of you guys wanted to know whether they are worth the money. So I set out and chose a set from their website for review. When the clothes arrived I was instantly taken aback by how incredibly flattering they are. The fit is unlike any other I have ever tried before and they are super comfortable to wear at the gym while also looking really nice. I have one set that I love to wear while doing yoga as it’s a bright color and stains a bit at the gym.
Now that it’s summer I do not want my pants to show any sweat marks so I usually tend to rather go for a black pant. The bras are really nice as well and make your cleavage look incredible. I love that they are cut a bit broader and cover more of your body. This makes it easier to wear them with leggings only at the gym. I must admit that I was really critical in the beginning due to their Instagram hype and price. However, this brand was probably the biggest surprise for me. I would 100% order with them again. A friend of mine recently told me that she has two of their pants and they started to lose shape after a few washes – I personally cannot validate that (yet) but have still taken a star for this in the rating.
Price: Leggings: 90,- € & Bra: 50,- €
Info: Clothes are true to size and really stretchy. If you order the set it is a lot cheaper than choosing bra and leggings independently. However, then you must be fine with having both in matching colors.
