Are you ready to be fit for fashion, or perhaps fashionably fit? As an ambassador for Fitfluential, I was really excited to be offered the chance to review the YMX by Yellowman fitness apparel. I have been a fan for quite a while. I just love their prints and colors. Don’t I look fit for fashion?
I always thought the YMX line looked like Tattoo art. In researching this review I learned that Tattoo art was in fact the inspiration for the YMX by Yellowman prints. The Yellowman story is actually quite fascinating. Here is a snippet from the company website:
YellowMan founder, Peter Mui, started the concept of YellowMan under that premise that skin color should never be a barrier against social status. He should know. Chinese blood, and Oklahoma native, his identity breaks all the usual cultural stereotypes. He’s true to all dimensions of his identity, proudly exuding his Chinese heritage on one side and down-home country singer on the other.
YMX (acronym for YellowMan Expression) was launched in 2009 as an extension of the original, high-end tattoo clothing brand, YellowMan (founded in 2004). YMX offers multifunctional garments that bridge the gap between athletic and fashion garments. Featuring high-comfort, lightweight MadKool fabrics and detailed, original prints, YMX garments can be worn for athletic use, or for casual wear. As a matter of fact, because of the moisture-wicking properties of the fabric, many people wear YMX in both active and leisure activities without having to change!
When a company website explains the details of their products better than I can, I’ve got to use at least a bit of it. That said, I completely agree with the statements regarding the comfort, style and fabric. When I first tried on my YMX top, I thought it was super stylish. I wore it paired with a skirt to pick up my kids from camp. I also posted a photo of myself on Facebook and received quite a few of likes and compliments.
YMX by Yellowman makes all sorts of clothing. There are a few items for men, but the majority of the line is for women. Clothing choices include:
- Tank Tops
- Cycle Tops
- Tri-Pocket Tops
- Long Sleeve Tops
- Tees and Run Tops
- Leggings and Shorts
- Jackets and Vests
- Sleeveless Jerseys
- Sport Sleeves
- Plus size items
YellowMan has carefully engineered technical fabrics (MadKool) to receive the art with vivid clarity, while also providing powerful wicking benefits found in top athletic-wear brands.
The fabric is so comfortable for hot summer days. It also has SPF 30, which is great for my outdoor activities like biking, hiking and running. I hate when clothes stick to me in the humidity. The YMX tops don’t do that. Other than around town, I have worn my top for yoga at home. The fabric moves so nicely from pose to pose and does not rub or chafe.
If you are looking for high style and functionality that you can easily wear to be fit AND fashionable, I highly recommend YMX by Yellowman.
