Skimmed Milk was founded in 2017 and ultimately there aim is to provide premium fitness and athletics wear that can be worn across a range of exercise classes including yoga, Pilates, spinning (which we have tried and tested ourselves and they pass with flying colours) and whatever else crops up on your schedule!
Skimmed Milk had the idea of putting together a collection of Sports Bras and Leggings in fresh interchangeable colours (one of our favourite thing about the brand), which would always go with whatever you grabbed on the way out the door ensuring that your style is always on point- we can confirm that they have met this vision!
We completely fell in love with Skimmed Milk active wear the moment we set eyes on it. Who wouldn’t though it is truly stunning and so pretty! We love the pastel colours and we have been living in our set throughout the summer and this will definitely continue into winter anything to brighten up our wardrobe during the colder months!
We are writing this review at just about the right time though as they have just released new colours for autumn, they are so bright and colourful and just so beaut!
They have: French Blue, Tango Red, Teal, Violet and citrus! We love the Tango red and Citrus- they are beautiful!
The sets come in sizes five sizes (XS, S, M, L & XL). We went for the XS which is a size 6-8, but you can check out the size guide on the website. We always find that sports clothes tend to come up a little bigger so we always opt for the smallest size otherwise we find the leggings can be baggy.
The leggings cost £45 and the sports bra costs £35 but the pastel set is now in the sale so you can get the bra for £17.50 and the leggings for just £24.50 BARGAIN!
The sets in the sale come in four colours:
Bubblegum- baby blue
Strawberry- pastel pink
Mint- Mint green
They material is incredibly soft and feels really nice on the skin. We are quite fussy when it comes to active wear as we love comfort over anything. This ticks all of the boxes, and are high waisted as well which is a massive plus for us.
The sets arrived in the cutest packaging- a cardboard milk carton which was of course pink! We think the packaging is an important part of the customer’s journey and something we always remember. It shows the company has pride in the products they sell and have really thought about each step of the customer’s journey and to us probably one of the most important aspects.
Rachel has the Strawberry (pink) set it is such a pretty pink and Annie has the Blueberry (lilac) set which is absolutely adorable. We usually love to be matching but with these sets it really didn’t matter in as they complement each other so well.
We mainly wear our sets when we attend spinning classes, go for long walks, attend the occasional yoga class or if we are just going for a Saturday morning brunch, because who doesn’t brunch in there active wear?
Skimmed Milk also sell S’well Water bottles which are absolutely stunning and come in the most beautiful patterns we ever did see. Annie loves the Blue Granite bottle and Rach has her eye on the Blanc Crocodile one.
