When Sundried reached out to me offering some activewear pieces, I couldn’t wait to give them a whirl.
I’m an obsessive walker thanks to living in Windsor and clock up 15k steps plus most days on the FitBit, plus I love my weekly PT sessions with my good pal Libby, which keep me on track and help keep me feel fit and healthy.
Frustratingly as a sufferer of PCOS (polycystic ovaries), my weight fluctuates week to week so my wardrobe spans UK 6-12 clothes with my ideal size on my hourglass frame being a UK 10. My priority above all is not size however but health. Feeling well and not out of breath running and ensuring the risk of diabetes and other illnesses which comes with PCOS are prevented, is my number one goal.
I’m not going to lie either but pretty activewear really motivates me to get out there running and power walking.
Activewear for me is not just about the sports factor either, it’s day wear for me as I live in comfy leggings and sweaters as a mumboss, and only ever get dressed up if I have meetings in London or photo shoots. School-run to home office aka my dining table sees me in the comfiest of leggings, big tees and soft hoodies- and I live in my trainers too!
Sundried is LITERALLY the comfiest of activewear I’ve worn. It’s a premium British ethical activewear brand inspired by the dedication of triathletes spanning seamless silhouettes to triathlon suits, running tights, sports bras and more.
Sundried pride themselves on their ethical production, partnership with The Low Carbon Innovation Fund, recycled fabrics, and their signature ‘wash cool, sun dry’ aftercare policy to help protect the planet.
Soft, well made, without any awkward camel toe (cringe), I didn’t want to take these items off. You could to be fair, sleep in them if you wanted! That’s how soft they are!
I plumped for this pretty blue grand tournalin hoody (£80) in a small (UK 10, US 6). The Sundried Grand Tournalin Women’s Hoody is designed to fit like a second skin, constructed with muscle support zones to the back and biceps to flatter your form and provide a comfortable fit with complete freedom of movement.
Extra long sleeves with thumb holes provide practicality and added protection. Super lightweight premium materials mean this hoody can be worn in summer or winter and the soft Merino wool provides exceptional sweat-wicking technology. Amazing.

I paired it with the Sundried Ruinette 2.0 Women’s Leggings (£50) in a small (UK 10) which also features a seamless design so they feel like a second skin but which still enables complete freedom of movement whether you’re power walking to school or getting your sweat on in a spinning class.
The compression-style fit is super flattering and gives a locked-in feel.
