Nuu-Muu Review and Giveaway ...

Hi. My name is Tonia and I am a running gear addict. I feel an incessant need to look fashionable when I run. That's why I was beyond excited when Enid at Nuu-Muu gave me the opportunity to test out one of their exercise dresses.

Nuu-Muu mixes fashion with function, something I am always looking for. You can wear these dresses from trail to beach and everywhere in between. They are comfortable, adorable and flexible. With no built-in undergarment, you can choose what best fits your workout style. Nuu-Muus are self-described as the "no-fuss exercise-and-everything-else dresses" and it couldn't be more true.

I chose the "Foxtrot" to test and paired it with a pair of spandex boy shorts.

The dress fit true to size (I wear a 4 and the dress was size small, 4-6), but I found that the dress was rather short on me due to my uber-long torso. And although, I think my legs are my best asset, I think in the future I will pair it with capris or a longer pair of compression shorts to make up for the length.

The first time I wore my Nuu-Muu was during a VERY hot eight miler in Key West. And right from the start, there was a lot to like about this dress. To begin with, the material is ultra-comfortable and does an incredible job of wicking away sweat (and if you've seen me sweat, you know that this is a HUGE plus).

Another major plus is the fact that it's one piece. There is absolutely no way that my "mommy belly" was going to make a surprise appearance due to shifting clothing. And speaking of shifting clothing, there was none of that. The dress stayed right where it was supposed to be (even if it did show off my boy shorts ...

Overall, I really love my Nuu-Muu exercise dress and it will definitely make it into my rotation of running outfits.

And now, thanks to the people at Nuu-Muu, one of my readers will win a Nuu-Muu dress of her own. Here's how to enter:

Looks good on you! I also have the long torso-problem (hence the horror I am in when bathingsuit shopping...), so I'm with you on the longer shorts to wear with it. :)

Love the Olivia dress! I am already a follower on your blog, joined the Nuu Muu-facebook page and linked this giveaway on my blog. :)

Ok, it's bold, but I like the Not So Plain Jane in FIREFLY. Imagine THAT on a race course... and with that much color there'd be no danger of getting hit by a car due to not being seen... I'm just sayin'.

rebeccam said...

I became a fan of Nuu Muu : )

rebeccam said...

My favorites are "Fleur" and "Firefly".

I love the dresses. If I win, I would choose...there are so many good choices...the coco one. I have looked at the dress many time but I keep wondering just how short it would be on me. I am 6' and most dress tend to be really short.

I love the Bubbles collection! I have 3 running dresses from SkirtsSports that I adore and would enjoy trying one of these. Dresses are great for long runs when I have to wear a fuel belt because I don't have to worry about my shirt shifting up or waistband shifting down and the belt rubbing my skin.
