Mondetta Performance Gear Review + $75 Gift Certificate Giveaway


My daughter was a cheerleader and a pom throughout middle school and high school, and I think that’s when she developed a love for sports-casual apparel.

To this day, the second she gets home she puts on a comfy pair of yoga pants to lounge around in for the remainder of her day (and to wear while practicing yoga).

So when Mondetta Performance Gear asked me to do a review, I knew my daughter had to do it. She chose the Lift racerbank tank and the Chic yoga pant.

The Lift tank ($40) is made from poly-spandex fabric with breathability, and is perfect for light workouts and yoga. The fabric is moisture wicking with light stretch, and has a beautiful fitted silhouette.

My daughter’s review: The shirt fits well through the bust, and is extra long and flares out slightly at the bottom. I hate when shirts are too short, so I liked how it covered my waistband. The print is interesting, and adds a nice girly touch that is unexpected for workout clothes.

The Chic yoga pant ($58) is a polyester-spandex blend with four-way stretch. Designed to be quick-dry and moisture wicking, it’s perfect for low and high-impact workouts, dance, and yoga, and the built in gusset allows for greater movement and flexibility.

My daughter’s review: The pants are the best pants ever. The waistband comes to an overlapping V in the middle, which is incredibly flattering and makes my stomach look slimmer. The fabric is stretchy yet structured, unlike other yoga pants that bag at the knees and in the butt after a little while. (Full disclosure: I wore these every night for four nights. Still no baggy butt.) If I had to rate these pants from 1 to 10, I would rate them OBSESSED.

Overall, we were both incredibly impressed with how well made Mondetta Performance Gear sportswear is, and the attention to detail and styling is unlike anything we’ve come across thus far. This is quality activewear!
