NOLA Chic Reviews: Born Tough Official Sportswear

Today I am writing a review for Born Tough Offical Sportswear. I received a Born Tough Women Contoured Hooded Tracksuit that my niece, athlete, and model Nene Barber is wearing in the featured pictures.

The tracksuit was intended to be worn and reviewed by me, but due to sizing issues. Instead of sending it back, I gave it to my niece, who was leaving on a flight out of New Orleans. And she was more than happy to take it off my hands. The size Large fit snug to size 5-6 body. I’m a size 10-12 with hips, butt, and breast and would have needed a double extra-large; sadly, the large is the largest size available.

The tracksuit combines fashion, function, and performance, making for the perfect addition to your wardrobe. It doubles as a trendy outfit and can be worn even if you don’t make it to the gym. The fashion-forward tracksuit could easily be worn with a pair of shoes, heels, or boots.

My niece stated she loves the style and fit of the Born Tough Jumpsuit. She’s 5’9, and the jacket and pants were nice and long. I’m 5’10, and it’s hard to find athletic wear that’s long enough, so this is a good thing. She liked the thumbhole designed sleeve stating that the detail added protection between her palms when grabbing and grabbing bars. She mentioned the thumbhole design provided some warmth for her hands from the cooler weather that awaited her in Chicago that day.

My niece also mentioned that high-quality stretchy material was soft and comfortable, which made for the perfect airport fashion.

She called me thanking me for the jumpsuit; “Hey, Auntie Dee, thank you for allowing me to model and wear the jumpsuit and good thing for these sleeves because it’s cold up here, and I did not have any gloves. And to say I worked out in it before I left, the material was completely dry, odor-free, and kept its shape. I think I will order one in a different color. Is shipping free.

Before her flight, she worked out at the outdoor gym at St. Roch Park in New Orleans on a dreary humid day. She worked up a good sweat, stating that not only did the material absorb the moisture, but it left her feeling dry and odor-free.

I’m the mother of a college athlete, and after years of washing smelly gym clothes, I can appreciate this quality. And I plan on purchasing him a few items from Born Tough based on this quality of the product.

The Born Tough Jumpsuit has a tight fit and hugs the body. The foot opening was tight as well. My niece had to do some pulling and to stretch to get it over her foot, but once it was on, it made for a great contoured look.

To sum up, my review Born Tough is not only for a workout, but the design allows you the option to do things before or after your workout.

The jumpsuit is made with high-quality material and is soft, super comfortable, lightweight, and easy to wash and fast drying.

It provides the athlete with excellent functionality and performance durability.

Born Tough is pretty affordable, and from what I observed, there’s always a discount code that can be used for additional savings.

I highly recommend ordering a size up or two, especially for women with curves. Please check the size chart before ordering.

A native of New Orleans, who left her beloved New Orleans to spend twenty years of living in the land of Minnesota Not So Nice. Minnesota was full of opportunities but would learn that the soul of the state and the people who made it was just as icy cold as the temperatures. After the years and my 40th birthday flew by, I decided it was time to pack up my youngest child and come back to my roots, my birthplace the city that not only birthed me but gave me life. I would not be who I am without my New Orleans beginnings. I am all things that would challenge the belief of growing up in New Orleans. I was a 16yr old teen mother of a premature baby born with a severe medical disability. And only With the help of my mother, was it possible for me to BE! I was able to endure and survive the obstacles laid before my child and me. In a city that was built by my family, but did not allow for us to reap the benefits I overcame. Charity Hospital was my second home — a building filled with miracle workers who made it possible for my daughter to have life. I have lived a life of rainy days with peeks of sunshine, that are my children, including those not of my womb. I'm the proud mother of three and a grandmother of three. My dream was to live the life of the nursery rhyme of ”The Old Lady Who lived in a shoe,” and for the most part, I did. I cared for several children over the years as a special needs foster parent. I would learn that my love was not enough for some children, but I loved them through their pain. I'm not sure if I ever had a case of true love or came close to what love looks like on television, but I had my share of men and the mirage of love. I survived two abusive marriages. Though I longed to return to New Orleans on a daily bases, I must admit my move was one of the best decisions made for me. I am a college graduate; I was a successful entrepreneur. I coowned a soul food restaurant and catering company in Minnesota for 12 years. I developed the talent of creating custom cakes after the murder of my beloved cousin Melvin Paul. He survived Katrina only to go to Minneapolis six months later to be murdered over a parking spot dispute. But with the challenge of creating a simple wedding cake, I was able to find healing. I created the House of Cakes in honor of him. Minnesota life had me pretty materialistic. I worked to the point I do not remember much, but work and handing my children love money. I thought by having the big house on the hill, a husband, having a family, the ultimate provider and being involved in all things that matter, plus having the funds to match would cure me of what I was told was a generational curse of lack of everything from money, love to even self-love. But for the most part, that life poisoned my heart and soul. I was blinded by visions fed to me by the media. I was told I wasn't anything unless I was better than the Jones's. I lived being ok with a broken, bleeding heart. Life like this did not exist in my family while living in New Orleans from what I viewed with my eyes and soul. We may not have had all the things I acquired over the years, but we were happy, we were together. Family outside of New Orleans wasn't family anymore. We lived separate lives and had awkward moments when we bumped into each other in public. I hated living in Minnesota even though life their helped me in so many ways. I felt deep down the only way to repair it was to get back to my roots, my soul, my home, myself, my New Orleans. I'm here, and I love it. Even being in the so-called Blighted Area of New Orleans and not having all the financial and material security, I'm happy. I am determined that She, yes, New Orleans is a woman is just like me; together, we will overcome and will rise from all that tried to kill our spirit. Nothing like starting from the bottom and making your way back up!. I just know in my heart that New Orleans will provide for me. There's a bank account with funds in it owed to me by way of back pay for my ancestors. And I will receive my inheritance, and I will continue the traditions and customs of the old to keep the heartbeat of New Orleans beating. I'm down in the boot, living the life that feels right to me awaiting my destiny...
