Motionwear Review and $25 Gift Card Giveaway – ENDED

v-waist-shorts UPDATED – Congratulations Ariana you are the winner.

After a lifetime of gymnastics, my daughter finished her competitive gymnastics career about 10 months ago. She did high school cheerleading over the summer and fall, then swam on the high school swim team this winter, but now it is spring and she misses the gym!  She recently went back to gymnastics – just for classes – but when I asked her what she needed most for workout, she said SHORTS. Luckily for her, I was given the opportunity to do a review of the most popular shorts from Motionwear – the v-waist team short. It is elastic free, has a flattering and very comfortable v-shaped waistband and a 2-3/4″ inseam.

So, what did she think? The Motionwear V-Waist shorts have quickly become her favorite! She says they are softer and more comfortable than the velvety ones she used to wear. They have been washed and worn numerous times since we got them and they have shown no signs of shrinking, pilling, or losing their shape.

When my daughter did gymnastics competitively, she had quite a few Motionwear leotards – and they always washed well, fit comfortably and best of all – they lasted. Motionwear has a wide range of gear for gymnastics, dance and cheer – from the basics to the highest quality competitive wear.

Here are a few photos my daughter’s friend took of her practicing in the Motionwear V-Waist shorts this week at the gym…
