Michelle Bridges latest activewear drop for Big W is the GOODS

Michelle Bridges’ activewear line for Big W is a hit with fitness fans who want to look the part, without spending a whole lot. But the latest drop looks anything but budget…

There’s nothing more motivating than slipping on a fresh pair of leggings, or wriggling on a new crop top to motivate you to stick to your Pilates class/at-home workout/weekly run. And you can double that feeling when you know your new threads haven’t put your bank balance into precarious territory, either.

So when news of super-trainer Michelle Bridges’ latest MB Active by Michelle Bridges hit our inbox we were keen to take a look. And look we did. The new range – which is in stores and online now – looks far more exxy than the rrps would suggest.

Thanks to mesh panelling, subtle graphic prints and seamless ‘space dye’ separates you could be forgiven for thinking that these pieces cost a lot more than they actually do.

Tanks and tees come in for $20 a pop, and leggings are priced at $35 (or less, style depending). On our calculations, that just means you can buy a whole new workout wardrobe for what you might usually pay for one pair of tights.

We asked Michelle what her absolute favourite items in the range were, and she was quick to answer, saying “The seamless space dye tank and matching tights are winners in any active wardrobe, but together, they are a dynamic duo! I get so many compliments when I wear this set! The tonal rich reds and ink blue combination creates something really sleek and feels so good on the body .”
