BODph activewear mesh top
When in Manila, active girls need not suffer in drab sportswear and baggy sweats any longer! For girls who want to look cute while sweating it out, we now have local brand BODph.

While we aren’t new to the concept of stylish workout gear, I don’t think we’ve encountered any local brand that’s been able to deliver affordable quality sportswear that fits the Filipina frame perfectly. BODph’s sports tops in bold neon and edgy mesh might just be the motivation you need to get active. Not only do these colorful pieces get you in the mood to hit the gym, they’re guaranteed to give you that much-needed confidence boost while you’re at it.
For that added workout inspiration, we offer you three handy tips in shopping for your next sportswear purchase:
Meshed Up sports bra in Orange (PHP850)
Sportswear should provide adequate support to keep all that junk in place while you’re in action, and at the same be comfortable enough to permit movement. In short, it should fit just right – not too loose nor too tight. And above all, it should accentuate your best features! There are so many cuts and styles available in sportswear shops and department stores today, but I feel that a good cropped halter-style sports bra would look good on every shape.
Basic B sports bra (PHP900)
When considering workout attire, it’s best to purchase one in light, breathable and flexible material. The last thing you’d want is to look all gross while your top clings to your sweaty body, so try and steer clear from wearing cotton fabric as your base top. Durability is also key in shopping for activewear, as these items of clothing are bound to endure some rough wear and tear from all your workouts.
Zip Forward sports bra in Pink (PHP700)
I cannot stress the importance of versatility enough when it comes to shopping for active wear. You’re bound to engage in a bunch of different kinds of sports and activities, and while most of them require varying types of sports gear, it would be great to have a small set of options that can cover most bases. It also wouldn’t hurt to find active wear that can take you from sporty to casual any day; there are tons of transitional workout wear that can look just as great on the street as they do on the mat/court/at the gym.
