Teen Review of Racer Sports Bra

We’re thrilled with the recent review by Mom Trends of our Racer Sports Bra for Girls, Chill Weight long sleeve top and spandex leggings for girls. Logan, the soccer-playing, 8th grader intern who wrote the review, captured the essence and mission of Dragonwing.

Dragonwing girlgear is a a tween and teen girls athletic wear brand that’s embarking on a mission to change how girls play sports.

Here’s the deal–Dragonwing girlgear wants girls to be able to concentrate on their sports without worrying about adjusting their sports bra or tugging down their shorts.

Since Logan’s review covers three of our products, I’ll include each one in a separate blog post. First up, our Racer girls sports bra.

Here’s what Logan wrote about our best-selling sports bra:

I love the material the Racer sports bra was made of. It’s soft, snug, and oh-­so-­stretchy. The dragonfly design on the back is really cute, and the long length combined with the wide band means that it stays in place without digging into your skin.

I normally don’t wear a sports bra anytime I don’t have to, but I want to wear this everywhere.

The clothes are made just for girls’ bodies, and they’re all age ­appropriate. By that I mean, none of the bras are padded or lacy, and everything is snug, but not tight. All the clothes have flat seams and tags, so there’s no rubbing or discomfort.

Stay tuned. Our super soft and comfortable Chill Weight leggings for girls are next!

“Ridiculously Comfortable” Leggings for Girls

MomTrends (aka trend-spotting blogger and CEO Nicole Feliciano) gave a sneak peek on Instagram of its upcoming review of Dragonwing. We LOVE this photo of our Chill Weight leggings and fitted long-sleeve top.

But what I love even more is that the reviewer – and model – is an 8th grade girl who’s doing an internship with MomTrends. Now THAT’s girl empowerment! Her Instagram comment:

“Just wanted to say how much I love these clothes. They’re ridiculously comfortable!!”

Cool Weather Athletic Clothing for Girls

 

We must be having fun because time is flying! Fall arrived this week and that means cooler temperatures, especially in the afternoon and evening. It’s time to add a thermal base layer, so girls stay warm, dry, and comfortable when playing sports.

Our Chill Weight sports leggings and long-sleeve fitted tops make the perfect cool weather layer for athletic girls. Girls stay warm and dry and can play without distraction — no shivering, no bunching or drooping leggings, no tugging at tops that ride up in back. Wear them alone, under uniforms or skirts, or under cold-weather sports gear (great for skiing, too!).

5 Back-to-School Tips for Active Girls

 

The start of the school year is filled with anticipation, excitement, great promise, and sometimes anxiety. What will my teachers and classes be like? Will I make new friends? Will my “old” friends still be my friends? And, when transitioning to a new school, will I fit in?

Girl with backpack and bike back to school

At Dragonwing girlgear, our mission is to empower girls in sports and in life. Building connections, feeling confident inside and out, and making routines and transitions as smooth as possible can help get the school year off to a great start! Here are our 5 back-to-school tips:

1. JOIN A TEAM OR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY, IN OR OUT OF SCHOOL. Being part of a team is a great way for girls to make friends, stay active, reduce stress, improve mental health, and develop lifelong skills – like teamwork and resilience — that are the benefits of sports participation.

2. CHOOSE CLOTHING THAT GIVES GIRLS COMFORT AND CONFIDENCE FROM THE INSIDE OUT. The start of school, particularly for girls whose bodies are changing, can be a time of hyper self-awareness. Research shows that girls are starting puberty, marked by the start of breast development, significantly earlier than 15 years ago, sometimes as young as 8 or 9 years old.

Regardless of when they first need a bra, girls want something comfortable that provides enough coverage so they don’t feel self-conscious and fits them just right, so they can move and play with confidence. Girls and parents alike want a first bra to be age-appropriate, not the padded or plunging bras of Victoria’s Secret, Target, and other retailers.

A well-fitting, comfortable sports bra, like our Keyhole and Racer sports bras, or a sports camisole with an inner layer, like our Un-Tee Sports Cami, is often the best choice.

3. MAKE THE TRANSITION FROM SCHOOL TO SPORTS EASY, QUICK, AND COMFORTABLE. The start of the school year and fall sports season means girls – and parents – need to make quick transitions from school to practice or competition.

Need to change clothes in the car or on the bus? Concerned about modesty while changing out of school clothes and into sports gear? When getting dressed in the morning, choose base layers (aka “undergarments”) — like our sports bras, camis, and light compression shorts — that are cool and comfortable under “regular” school clothes and make changing for sports quick and easy. No need to completely undress; just take off school clothes and pull on a sports jersey and shorts.

What a girl wears under her uniform can help her feel confident and play her best. Undergarments that are comfortable, fit great, and provide appropriate coverage empower girls to play the sports they love without being distracted by droopy straps, bras or shirts that ride up, or bunching shorts.

4. PLAN AHEAD FOR COOLER WEATHER. While it may be hot and humid now, the arrival of cool, fall weather always seems to surprise us. Afternoon practices and games – or the trip to and from school — can quickly turn chilly or downright cold.

A pair of leggings and a long-sleeve top under sports gear can keep a girl athlete warm, agile, and in the game. Moisture-wicking fabric is a must, so the sweat moves away from the skin and girls stay dry and warm. When shopping, consider the sport as well as the fit. Many soccer girls love our Capri-length Chill Weight Leggings because they don’t interfere with shin guards.

5. THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS A GIRL NEEDS ON HER FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL WON’T FIT INTO HER BACKPACK OR GYM BAG. She carries these treasures inside herself: a spirit of adventure and curiosity, a desire to learn and tackle new challenges, and a sense of confidence in herself.

Review: Athletic Gear for Tweens

Tami M., aka The Colorado Mountain Mom, recently shared her excitement at discovering Dragonwing girlgear. After her tween daughter  wore  our  Chill Weight capri leggings and Un-Tee Sports Cami for gymnastics and running for a whole month, Tami announced, “We love Dragonwing girlgear!”

“Making active wear clothing for tween girls to feel comfortable and special is such a great concept.  If you’re encouraging your daughter to learn to live an active lifestyle, it helps to inspire them by providing not only the opportunities, but the gear they can use to feel confident and strong.”

What was the Dragonwing Difference for Tami and her pre-teen daughter?

– “Much nicer quality than the cheap athletic capris for kids, typically found at retailers.”

– “Softer, more durable, longer lasting, better fitting, and much more comfortable!”

Dragonwing girlgear capri leggings are tween daughter's favorites.

– “They quickly became her absolute favorite pair. She says they feel noticeably different, better, than all her other capris.”

– The Un-Tee Sports Camisole is “soft, comfortable, and again… much nicer quality than the cheap options sold in most stores like Target or Walmart. Plus it comes in a rainbow of fun colors!”

As a mom, I love that with one Dragonwing Girlgear “outfit”, she has the needed active wear gear for two different sports, both running and even gymnastics. These versatile pieces could really be worn for any tween girls’ athletic endeavor.
