#TrendingWithMyUS: Girlfriend Collective

Wish you could find activewear that looks great, feels even better, performs under pressure, AND actually helps out the environment? You'll love Girlfriend Collective

Founded in 2015 by husband and wife team Quang & Ellie Dinh, Girlfriend Collective makes sustainable, eco-friendly, and ethically-made activewear for women that want to not only look great but feel good about the purchasing choices they make. 

Five Girlfriend Collective models pose in new spring colored tops holding flower bouquets.

From the start, they've set out to be as transparent as possible in every aspect of production and shipping. Their recycled fabric is made in Taiwan with recycled plastic bottles, fishing nets, and other waste, and certified Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, the world’s leader in testing fabrics to regulate harmful substances. Their clothing is cut and sewn in their SA8000 certified factory in Hanoi, Vietnam, that guarantees fair wages, safe and healthy conditions, and zero forced or child labor.

And their packaging? 100% recycled and recyclable, of course! They've also thought ahead with their Recycle. Reuse. ReGirlfriend. Send them your old Girlfriend items when you're done with them, and they'll recycle them into new gear and give you $15 towards a future purchase. 

But equally important, their leggings, bras, tops, and shorts look and feel AMAZING, and are made for real women of all shapes and sizes. In fact, they never retouch or alter their models' bodies, period. (Catch up with them on Instagram to see for yourself!)

Black Compressive High-Rise Legging $68

Compressive, squat-proof, and ultra-high rise, the Black Compressive High-Rise Legging is GF's #1 bestseller. They're soft, universally flattering, and each pair diverts 25 plastic bottles from landfills. 

"These are by far my favourite leggings I've ever had! the compressive material is perfecly fitting, soft, and they stay in place during workouts! the high waist is also super flattering" says Lula in her five-star review.

Prefer a splash of color in your leggings? Foam Compressive High-Rise Leggings have all the bells and whistles you get with their bestselling black leggings featured above, but in a breathtaking shade of mint that we can't get enough of.

"I love my leggings in daybreak. The color is so vibrant and fun. The more I wear them, they comfier they get. It's so wild that they are made from recycled water bottles. YES TO EARTH CONSCIOUS CHOICES. I feel so confident wearing them." says Eena C. in her online review. 

Moss Topanga Bra $38

Looking for a sports bra for low-impact workouts and lazy Sundays? Try Girlfriend Collective's Topanga Bra in moss. With a high halter neck and criss-cross back, it's perfect for all your favorite low-impact activities, and it features a UPF 45+ rating for protection against harmful ultraviolet rays. Equally fabulous, each one diverts 11 water bottles from landfills!

"I’d wear this thing everywhere if it were socially acceptable. It’s a little tight around the band, but I think that’d be appreciated if I had bigger boobs that needed that support. The moss color is GORGEOUS. It also covers down to my mid ribs, so I can get away with wearing it and some high waisted leggings to the gym." says Megan H. in her glowing online review. 

Midnight Paloma Bra $38

For a bra that's both full coverage and flattering, we love GF's Paloma Bra in Midnight. It has a scoop neck, racerback, provides ample support for medium-impact workouts, and can double as your new favorite top! Made from recycled water bottles, it also diverts 11 water bottles from landfills!

"I was really surprised at the level of support given that there is no wire or structure to the bra (I have tried tons of sports bras from a variety of companies). The material is made in such a way to give you a good amount of support. I use this primarily for yoga, Pilates and strength training. It is super soft and makes me feel so good when I’m wearing it. Highly highly recommend." says Shobhita S. in her five-star review.

The Perfect Tank $26

Say "bye" to sleeves and "hello" to sustainable style with The Perfect Tank. It's lightweight and sheer with a boxy fit and oversized armholes—perfect for layering with their leggings and bras. Made from 100% cupro (waste the cotton industry leaves behind), it's 100% biodegradable and saves 682 gallons of water compared to traditional cotton tees. 

"Gorgeous fabric with a lovely drape. The armholes are dropped but not too low, the shirt is not too tight, feels breathable. I almost feel bad working out in it because it’s so perfect!" says Mikhaela M. in her online review. 

Saguaro High-Rise Bike Short $48

Girlfriend Collective's high-rise bike short in Saguaro styled with brown boots

A good bike short will fit well, stay put, and flatter your figure. Girlfriend Collective's Saguaro High-Rise Bike Short does all that while giving some love back to the environment. In fact, each pair diverts 17 water bottles from landfills and prevents 12.61 lbs. of CO2.

"Sustainable, body inclusive, high quality bike shorts? What more could I need!! I love that this brand showcase thick girls, because that is what really convinced me to buy from girlfriend. I struggle with shorts ripping and the fabric thinning pretty quickly because my thighs rub together. I love these shorts, because they prevent chafing and while many shorts/leggings I've had start to wear by the nth use, I can tell that these are high quality and will last after wearing them multiple times. I'm in LOVE!" says Olivia B. in her online review. 

Black Maternity Legging $88

Comfort is always important, especially when you're expecting. Girlfriend Collective must really get it because their Black Maternity Leggings are truly one-of-a-kind. Breathable, flexible, and soft, they provide great coverage, have a next-to-nothing feel, and an over-the-belly high rise waist that easily folds down when you need a little extra space. 

"I am in LOVE with these leggings. They are extremely comfortable. They are the first thing I change into when I get home from work. I also love that they have continued to fit as my belly grows. They are incredible!" says Claire R. in her five-star online review.

A water-resistant pullover with a boxy cropped fit, hideable hood, and pockets, it's super cute and sure to be a wardrobe favorite. It too diverts water bottles from landfills, 34 per windbreaker to be exact!

"I literally could not wait to get this in the mail after seeing it online & I wasn’t disappointed with it in person. The color & fit are both flattering, plus it’s so freaking nifty how they made space for the hood in the collar! I feel like a total badass when I wear it!" says Ryan A. in her glowing review.
