Nuu Year, Nuu You

It’s the end of February – typically the time when those Valentine’s chocolates have weighed you down, the gym is starting to empty out of the New Year’s resolutioners, and your skin and hair has seen better days thanks to our cold Canadian winters. If you’re feeling a little laggy, it’s time to kick start those fitness, health, wellness, and diet goals to push you through all the way to the dreaded bathing suit season. For me, the easiest way to do that has always been to buy something as a motivational tool. If your NYR was to eat more greens, invest in a new cookbook about salads or side dishes. If you wanted to participate in at least one outdoor activity per week, look at your city’s wellness guide and see if there’s an eight-week program you can set an appointment for. And if you were hoping to work up a sweat 3-4 times per week (or more), why not reward yourself with a cute new workout ensemble? You know, the type of thing that not only performs well, but makes you look cute, and feel comfortable in your own skin – even if you’re panting like a winded puppy on the treadmill. Enter Nuu-Muu.

Nuu MuuThe idea behind Nuu-Muu is pretty straightforward: creators Ashley and Christine were pretty tired of the same ol’, same ol’ when it came to fitness gear. They joined forces to create a line of incredibly flattering and comfortable athletic dresses that celebrate femininity while providing the moisture-wicking and stretchiness sports performance features you’d expect. You can don a Nuu-Muu while going for a jog or hike, playing tennis, dance lessons, cycling, lifting weights, attending a fitness or spin class, or doing yoga – and still look stylish enough to simply throw on a denim jacket or leggings if you’ve got some errands to run in-between picking up the kids and stretching your muscles.

Nuu Muu BlueBeyond the flexibility of the dress, it also comes with built-in options. Nuu-Muu comes in sizes from XS all the way up to XXL, and is available in over a dozen fun prints that easily disguise any of those bumps & lumps you’re sweating to work off – or basic black, if that’s more your thing. With new styles added semi-annually, it’s definitely worth a repeat visit once you’ve invested in your first Nuu-Muu. Another incentive? They also come in two different styles, the classic Nuu-Muu ($70 USD), and the Ruu-Muu ($80 USD), which includes slimline pockets to tuck your absolute essentials in when pounding the pavement. The Nuu-Muu is lightweight enough that it layers super well, and of course, it covers your sports bra perfectly.

Mini Muu

The Mini-Muu ($45 USD) is also every parents’ dream dress: the bright, colourful prints will appeal to your daughters’ girly side, while the stain-and-tear-resistant fabric means she can indulge in her tomboy side and muck it up outside with nary a worry. The brand’s cheeriest prints are available in coordinating Mini-Muus so you and your girls can have a total mother / daughter moment during your community fun run or beach vacation.

Ruu MuuI want to address something important here though. Although the Nuu-Muu was crafted as a fitness wear alternative, after talking to the folks at Nuu-Muu I can tell you that many women have let these dresses take over their wardrobes. The incredibly supple material makes it an ideal choice for when you’re traveling and want to be comfy on the plane, or if you’ve got one of those crazy days where you’re volunteering at your kids’ track & field event and you know that even if you aren’t ‘exercising’, you’ll definitely be working up a sweat, or even if you’re just running around town / taking the dog for a walk / heading to the beach. In other words? It’s way more versatile than that formfitting yoga tank or bike shorts.

Desert landing pageSo how does one obtain a Nuu-Muu (or two)? The Nuu-Muu site lists all of their retailers, including a hearty sprinkling across Canada. If you’re not in a city that carries Nuu-Muu, you can also order online at completely reasonable rates – a surcharge of $3 applies to their regular shipping, meaning prices start at $8 if you’re buying just one dress.
