Lululemon Designed Leggings to Make HIIT Class Better
And by better, we mean less sweaty — not easier (sorry).
Everlux supremely quick-dry fabric is the latest innovation to come from Lululemon‘s super-secretive research and development lab, Whitespace.

So far, the fabric is offered in three styles: the In Movement 7/8 Tight ($98), In Movement Crop ($88), and In Movement Short ($48). I wore a pair of the silky-feeling In Movement 7/8 tights through a Barry’s Bootcamp class, and can attest to their drying powers — it looked like only the top half of my body had been been through the gruelling 50-minute HIIT workout. I’m a big fan of the high-rise fit, and found that I was most comfortable in a size down from what I normally wear. Now if only they could design a fabric with some sort of energy booster in it…
