    "A bunch of old water bottles has never looked so good!"

    Girlfriend Collective believes in ethical manufacturing and recycled materials. In addition, the brand believes that health and wellness come in many shapes and sizes, and that representation matters. The colorful designed tops and leggings are made to fit all body types.

    Miellyttävät ja toimivat shortsit

    Todella hyvä istuvuus, lahkeet eivät rullaannu ylös ja vyötärö on riittävän korkea ja silti todella mukavat päällä. Shortseissa ihana laatu, joustavat ja täten tosi mukavat päällä ihan arjessa tai oleilussa, mutta samalla kuitenkin toimivat erinomaisesti myös esimerkiksi reippaassa juoksussa. Täydelliset, seuraavaksi tilaan nämä taskullisena!

    Comfortable, flattering, and goes with anything!

    These shorts are my go-to for wearing around the house, quick errands, and short bike rides. They are high-quality and I love that they are made from recycled materials!

    Bike shortsit

    Mukavat päällä, plussaa korkeasta vyötäröstä. Näitä on hyvä käyttää lyhyen mekon kanssa.

    Hyvä ja napakka istuvuus

    Mukavat ja tarpeeksi korkeat shortsit kesäkeleihin.
