Girls Long Sleeve Shirt…Thumbholes!

In her review on MomTrends, teen soccer girl Logan raved about her Chill Weight long sleeve fitted shirt.

I already have two tops that I wear under my soccer jersey on cold days, but the Dragonwing Chill­ Weight top is going to jump to the front of the line every single time.

It’s warm and soft, made of the same material as the leggings. It has a panel on the wrist of each sleeve to wipe sweaty foreheads or running noses, and (drumroll please…) it has thumbholes! These clothes fit and suit me to a “T” and have all the little details that make a big difference.

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!!”

Un-Tee Sports Cami Raves

Our Un-Tee Sports Camis have been flying off the proverbial shelves here at Dragonwing girlgear HQ!

Girls love the way they fit and feel under school and sports uniforms and “everyday” clothes. Snug but not tight with just the right amount of support and coverage.

Adrienne, a blogger and mother of 10- and 13-year old daughters, was so delighted with her girls’ Un-Tees that she posted a review on The Momalog Facebook Page.

Adrienne’s full review was a bit longer. I’ve posted it here because it didn’t quite fit so well on the image:

Moms of tween/teen girls and athletes:
Have you been looking for solid, comfortable, well-made undergarments for your daughter to wear under her uniforms, for sports, dance, under tank tops etc.. but can’t find the quality?
I just bought some items from Dragonwing girlgear (basic white tank undershirt w. built in bras) for my tween & my teen and these products are AMAZING! And built to last.
My daughters love these.

Thanks, Adrienne!

Our Un-Tee Sports Cami is available in a range of sizes and colors.

Two Sports Bras isn’t Enough for Athletic Girl

 

Wendy’s teen daughter got her first Racer Sports Bra at the start of the summer — two actually – one each in black/teal and white lime! She loves them and has “been begging for some more!”

After she ordered four more Racers in early August, Wendy generously wrote a review on our website.

Great quality & comfort. They’re very soft and comfortable and the fit is great. Much better than anything you can find at a big box sporting goods store. Would love to see more colors!

 

We’re happy to announce that we’ll have several new colors of the Racer later this year. Be sure to join our email list, so you’ll be among the first to know when the new colors — and a few other new products — arrive.

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!”

Soft, comfortable, supportive camisole tank top for active tween, teen

 

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.

Girl’s Keyhole Bra = Comfort, Confidence

review Dragonwing sports bra: fashionable comfort for young girlWe know that girls of all ages come in all shapes and sizes. And we know that girls love to play, whether on the playground or on a competitive playing field. Sadly and far too often, girls drop out of sports and start becoming less active when their bodies start to develop.

In a recent review of our Keyhole Sports Bra, blogger Chloe M. recounted her young daughter’s experience:

My little 8-year-old loves her sports… however, her weight, size, and now developing body was making it hard for her to be comfortable when she played.
The Keyhole Sports Bra changed everything and provided her with fashionable comfort for everyday use.

 

The first day she wore the new bra she said she felt like she was years younger again. No discomfort.

 

Her friends in the locker room even commented on how cute it looked and asked where to get one.

 

We LOVE hearing how Dragonwing girlgear boosts girls’ confidence, empowering them to be the strong, active, fun-loving kids they are! Read Chloe’s full review on her blog, Reviews by Clo.

Play Wedgie-Free & Without Distraction

Monica watched her 10-year old granddaughter on the softball field as she adjusted her uniform again and again, tugging at the bulky compression shorts that were bunching up under her uniform. The girl glanced around self-consciously each time to see if anyone noticed.

“She was totally distracted by those shorts that just didn’t fit properly,” Monica told us a couple of weeks after buying a pair of our Un-Dee Light Compression Shorts. Since she started wearing Dragonwing’s spandex shorts under her softball pants, Monica’s granddaughter “hasn’t picked a wedgie!”

Review: girls spandex compression shorts

That’s our goal: empower girls to play — and be — their best without being distracted by sports apparel that doesn’t fit properly.

Monica’s granddaughter loves the way her compression shorts fit: stretchy enough to move with her but not bulky like her old shorts from a big-box store. And the mesh side panels and moisture-wicking fabric meant she stayed cool under her uniform.

Now whenever they see another softball player tugging at her pants and picking at a wedgie, Monica and her granddaughter say, “That girl needs Dragonwing!”
