Following the awesome performance of the Fall collection in my last review, I was expecting nothing but the best. The rigors of practice and teaching are no problem for these pieces. They are all made with four way stretch, moisture wicking material that is quick dry, easy to care for and durable. Not surprisingly,many MPG peices were featured on National TV on the Today Show, with MizzFit. Honestly, video and pictures don’t do these clothes justice, you’ve gotta wear them to really “get it.”

The designers at MPG really know how to make clothes fit the function that they are designing for. These collection is functional, gives good coverage and support so you can focus on what you are doing, and not wondering if you are falling out of your clothes. As I use and review MPG items, I find myself wearing them more than any of my other yoga apparel. They were great for running erands before class and

I love the way the Chic pants fit. They are snug enough at the ankle, so they don’t trip you up but they are loose enough to allow for freedom of movement. The material feels lightweight yet durable, and washes well (holds its color and elasticity wash after wash). The lower waistband has a “v” shaped taper in the front that lies at the navel and lands on the transverse abs so it can remind one to contract the lower core. This cute detailing in a contrasting fabric adds to the styling without bulking up the waistline. Super comfy fabric moved with me and stayed feeling fresh even after a sweltering vinyasa yoga practice. These would be great for a Zumba class or Pilates as well.

The Eris top has great built in support without bulk and the strap detailing in the back is a functional and stylish detail. No slipping straps here! The wide band at the bottom didn’t roll up and helped the top stay in place. I love the fresh turquoise color, it is so perfect for Spring. During inversions and more strenuous asanas, it moved with me and allowed for full range of motion.

The Vivid tank top has great coverage while being comfortable. Built in coolmax bra liner keeps the girls in place without bulk so there was no chafing or rubbing arms on the sides of the top. Streamlined styling is classic and timeless, a great piece to build your yoga wardrobe around. The fabric keeps it’s shape and color after repeated washings. I can definitely see myself wearing this for a run or bike ride.
