What you are about to read is one hundred percent true and scientifically proven information.
When your workout clothes are cuter, your workout is more effective and enjoyable.
I mean come on ladies, back me up here on this one! If I have slim to no motivation to hit the gym, I change into my workout clothes. 9 times out of 10 that gives me enough girl power to get my sweat on. If you don't feel the same way, it's probably time for you to reevaluate the clothes you workout in. Your fitness wear should make you feel CONFIDENT and ready to tackle what's in front of you, including but not limited to a solid workout.
If you're wondering where you can get your hands on some cute, supportive, and flattering workout gear, you need to check out the tiny but mighty workout brand, Kiava. When I rave about this brand to my friends, they've all never heard of Kiava before, and I'm here to change that for women near and far. This brand is of the utmost quality and won't break the bank like some other brands have the ability to do. Plus, free shipping over $100!! What more could you want besides squat proof leggings and free shipping??!?!
I am so lucky to get to brag about this brand, and I'm even more lucky that they sent me some pieces to rave about and review for you lovely readers! Workout clothing is an investment and SHOULD be high quality. No one wants saggy leggings or a sports bra with no support and I promise my honest words are here to help you avoid that! I wouldn't support or recommend a brand I didn't love or believe in!
Now let's get started on these reviews! For some quick info about my body type to help you with sizing, I am 5 feet 5 inches tall, my bra size is a 34C, and I weigh about 145 pounds!
The Battle Rope Bra (Medium - High Impact Support)
Ladies, this bra is going to give you all the love and support you need! When I first tried it on I immediately fell in love with how freeing it feels in the back! The braided straps are not stiff at all, they are super stretchy and move with you without any digging whatsoever. I have become a huge fan these past few months of bras with minimal straps in the back, it just feels so free! I ran 2 miles in this bra after I received it in the mail and had no issues at all - definitely a bra that can hold up during cardio.
This bra is 90% polyester, 10% spandex, and I got a medium! It comes in white, black, and magenta, all of which come with removable pads! One little detail I really appreciate about their bras is that their branding is stitched into the bra as opposed to a label that is just on the outside that might have the danger of coming off in the wash. It's the little things that I appreciate!

I got this bra in white because it perfectly matches the…..
Black Marble Capri! (21 inches)
Oh. My. Goodness. This fabric is a cardio queen's dream! Kiava's luxe fabric is 77% polyester and 23% spandex - more than enough spandex to withstand running, HIIT workouts, cycling, and even a good old fashioned leg day. And I mean of course they're squat proof, did you even have to ask??? They have super deep pockets on both sides that are big enough to hold your phone, minimal branding on the calf, stay in place during movement, and have super flattering stitching that really makes my quads pop.
I wear either a 2 or a 4 in jeans depending on the brand, and I got a small in these leggings. They fit PERFECTLY. Because I am a tad bit short, these capris have more of a 7/8th length on me, and I'm not complaining at all! It's the perfect look for summer, especially considering how breathable they are. When I sweat, I SWEAT, so I am super appreciative of how sweat-wicking these bad boys are. I would SO recommend these leggings, especially if you are a runner.

I saved the best for last!!!
Fierce Crop Top
I LOVE crop tops!!! Something about them just makes me feel so slim and confident! Kiava seriously knocked this crop out of the ballpark. I am seriously about to wear the heck out of it. The mesh detailing is such a beautiful feminine touch without being too revealing and allows for nice ventilation while working up a sweat.
This crop is 90% polyester, 10% spandex, and… drumroll please… has a built-in bra with removable pads!!!! Why put on a crop over your bra when you can have two in one?!?! The crop lands right above my belly button and is just so so so flattering. I cannot rave about it enough! I got a medium in this top and it fits me like a glove. You could definitely say I feel fierce in it.
I know you're dying to get your hands on this beauty! Link to cop this crop is right HERE!!!
All of these items surpassed my expectations and I have zero complaints about their quality! I tend to gravitate towards darker colors but even the white battle rope bra makes me feel confident in my own skin! I cannot sing the praises of this brand to you all enough and you definitely need to get your hands on some of their gear! Check out their full website HERE and be sure to follow Kiava on Instagram HERE to stay up to date on all their sales, releases, and giveaways!
Remember that health & fitness is a JOURNEY, not a destination, and it's never too late to start today (and it wouldn't hurt to look cute while doing so either)! Why not you and why not now? Let's get better together!
