Running Chics: Women's Athletic T-shirt Review & Giveaway!


The last little while I've been more active then I've been in years. With my recent weight loss it's been hard to find anything to wear, since I've been dropping a size every month. While searching and reading the Internet for athletic wear, I came across an awesome  women's athletic clothing store called Running Chics. If you've never visited Running Chics before, you should. Their online selection of apparel is fun, fresh, and athlete-friendly. Their athletic apparel is cute, comfortable, and excellent quality.


Their main theme is “running chics” but they also have Pilates people, Yoga Chics, Swimming Chics, Nurse Chics, Pregnant Chics, Soccer Chics, Marathon and Half Marathon Running Chics, Golfing Chics, Teaching Chics, and much more!

I think these Little Running Chics are so adorable! The item that was sent to me for review, was the Casual Burnout t-shirt in the color fire. I selected the Running Chics logo that has a chic running with a dog on a leash. The t-shirt is made up of 55% polyester/45% cotton tee, and it retails for only $25! I can't get over how nice this t-shirt looks on. I find that with the tie-dye print, it has a slimming effect. It's great quality, and the tie-dye has a sheer effect to it. I also liked that it didn't have a tag sewed on at the neck, it's printed on instead. I'm someone who is famous for ruining my shirts, by tearing the tag off and accidentally causing a hole. Wearing this t-shirt you may want to stick to a nude undergarment, or it may show through.



Another awesome feature of their company is that they support Girls on the Run. A percentage of all their sales go to the Republic, Missouri, Girls on the run organization ran by Trish Hopkins, Council Director. Girls on the run is an international non-profit character development program for pre-teen girls that utilize a running format to teach life skills. Their mission is to “educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.”

Running Chics have been kind enough to offer one of my readers a chance to win their own t-shirt of their choice!
