Mesh has always been a popular choice for activewear for obvious functional reasons. Lately, several activewear games have been kicking their mesh game up a notch by experimenting with different types, especially ultra-wide cuts reminiscent of fishnet. While lululemon has been incorporating a lot of garden variety mesh into their pieces lately (the seek the heat crops being the most recent example), I haven’t yet seen them venture into the bolder territory like the brands below.
The Upside’s white muscle tank uses mesh insets at the shoulders to create a muscle-tank-meets-racerback mesh mashup.
The Upside layered the same style mesh over classic bootie shorts to make their swerve shorts.
This sunset tank from Alo Yoga has mesh in the back and at the straps but is solid up front.
And they use the same mesh as accents in other pieces, like their shadow hoodie.
For a little more subtle take, Michi’s storme cap sleeve top just has mesh at the sleeves.
And of course, I can’t mention Michi and mesh without mentioning the bionic bra. Lauryn of The Skinny Confidential looks so great in this bra she could probably make anyone want it.
Michi’s revolt tee has an all-mesh back, a v-neck, and contoured hem.
