New Year, New Workout gear with HydroChic

January 17, 2018
Wednesday Wellness

I love workout clothes and you can usually see me in those even if I’m not working out.

Recently, I’ve been fortunate enough to try some new active wear from HydroChic.  I love the way workout gear has evolved from the leotards and leg warmers of the 80’s to activewear that even looks good enough to wear to brunch or coffee.

I had not heard of HydroChic but when they approached me to try their products I was very impressed when I received them.

HydroChic Product Review

What did I like?

  • UPF50+ – living in Australia, especially Queensland we have the highest rate of melanoma (skin cancer) in the world so sun protection is a must.
  • Light and comfy to wear –
  • I liked that the tights weren’t too loose or too tight.  HydroChic refer to this as the Goldilocks principle.
  • Great colours
  • Variety of swimwear and activewear including skorts
  • The top and tights are CHLORINE PROOF so if you do want to use them for swimming the colour won’t fade and the fabric is long lasting which means value for money.

For more details on materials used and why you should select from the HydroChic range just click here.

I love bright colours and always feel more motivated to get moving when I’m wearing something that is comfortable and that I feel good in.

I selected  the Sleeveless Crossover Swim top in Geo /Black Binding Colour, matching Performance Wave Runner Swim Tights plus a Black Sports Bra – Racer back. Buying online can be a problem with getting the correct size, especially converting from Australian sizes to US sizes. The handy conversion chart on the website allowed me to compare my measurements and as you can see by the photos they fit perfectly. The top and tights are Size S and the sports bra is size M.

I will be using mine for running and working out but I could easily dive in to cool off on a hot day!

The versatility of BOTH the chlorine proof and chlorine resistant options make the HydroChic collections ideal for any sport. Our customers wear HydroChic to swim, to the gym, to hike, bike, surf, boat, run, play tennis, and much, much more.

Both the pants and top have pockets which is perfect to carry your car keys etc when running.  the bra fits perfectly and doesn’t cut into my skin but still holds me firm.



Why not checkout their range and treat yourself to some new active wear? You will certainly feel inspired to keep fit.

I love the look of these Hydrochic clothes, too and you look fab, by the way!! These would work well for me here in California with all my water sports!

    These look great Sue and as I will be looking for some new workout gear once we move I will certainly check out Hydrochic!

      Jan, they are very comfortable and I was surprised that the sizing was spot on, considering I had ordered on-line. Not long until you move! x

    Sue you look amazing in all your running gear, but there’s nothing like bright colours and pretty patterns to make you feel on top of your game. You look ready for your next marathon in that outfit!

    • Reply Sue Loncaric January 21, 2018 at 17:01

      Yes I chose the bright colours and they certainly do give me a lift that is for sure. Another marathon? Hmmmmm never say never LOL:)

    You look great and ready for action. What a great range of sizes they have XS to 5 X, that is often hard to find a range like that.


    • Reply Sue Loncaric January 23, 2018 at 07:49

      Thanks Kathleen! Yes it is good to see a range that covers all sizes and suits all sizes. They don’t fit skin tight so you can actually breathe. I’ll be wearing mine for running so when the weather cools watch out because that rainbow running by might be me 🙂 Have a beautiful week. xx
