My girls have good taste in clothes and shoes but I would say that they easily have more clothes than they could ever wear out. They may have a few things that they wear over and over, and wash a number of times but they don’t actually wear them out before they are passed along or grown out of. Dance clothes and other activewear however, get worn weekly, sometimes a number of times in a week and get laundered frequently so sometimes they do wear out. We’ve gone through dozens of pairs of tights, dance shoes and plenty of t-shirts too over the years.
A few years ago, I was introduced to the activewear company Triple Flip when it opened a store in my area. They are a Canadian brand – yay! – with clothing specifically for young girls, tweens and teens. Their mix of apparel mix is a combination of their signature line of custom stretchwear and streetwear, as well as fabulous brands sourced from all around the globe. They specialize in the things that girls want and need in their busy lives and have a great mix of remarkable products. My girls have both tried a number of different active wear brands over the years, yet their clothes from Triple Flip, especially their shorts and leggings that get worn and washed continually, are some of the best active wear that they have owned.
During our Spring Break trip to Palm Springs, we did a lot of hiking and walking as our condo was situated right along a golf course. Although it was fairly hot during the day, in the morning and the evening we spent some time exercising and taking advantage of the beautiful scenery. Both of my girls brought their Triple Flip activewear, Chloe in the studio shorts and a power tank, and Isabella in the supplex sprint capri leggings, and the home-run top. My girls are both on the upper end of the Triple Flip age range, except that the company has sized their product from sizes 1 through 6, which eliminates the reservations that some kids can have over sizing. Isabella and I both wear the same size in tops now, and there are plenty of Triple Flip activewear tops that fit me also – the home run top is made of nylon and spandex stretch that is super soft, so its a perfect layering piece to wear to the gym too.
I am always happy when my girls are happy and comfortable in their activewear, and I like to get things that will last, wash well, not pill and can get passed down when we are done. I have become more conscious of over-buying clothes, and buying cheap clothes that don’t last and therefore, fill up the landfills (if you want to read more about it, click HERE).
Thank-you Triple Flip for providing us with quality Canadian clothing that is both cute and perfect for active girls like mine. If there isn’t a store near you, Triple Flip has a comprehensive online store and ships internationally.
