OK, Miz, Oiselle was started on the disgruntled-ness of not finding chic, functional athletic apparel. Much of what I thought was missing has been what’s driven the brand. And yet, I remain very curious and open to what OTHER women think is missing.
What bugs them? What irritates them? What gets stuck in the places where things just shouldn’t get stuck?
For me, it was running shorts…and big boxy running tops, and shimmels that roll and ride above the navel. Not to mention neon vests, the color fuschia, white shorts liners, vanity sizing, and much, much more.
For your readers, I would be curious what irritates you? What’s missing? What do you want to see changed? If you could design the ideal garment of any kind, what would it be? Do the brands you buy love you back? Or do you just put up with what’s there? If you could take it all apart and put it back together again – what would it look like??? (MizFit note: here’s where we can finally be heard with regards to the SIZE lament we’ve oft discussed!)
Id love to give everyone who takes the time to share their constructive criticisms a free Iris Sport Top.
(please to comment by midnight tonight—–we’re going central time, People. And yes: it’s USA only. It’s a postage cost thang.)
You can see it on our site. It comes in pink or black, sizes XS – LG.
To get one just have your commenters email me after posting a comment on your site. Let me know color, size, and shipping address and, as long as my supply lasts, a sport top will be on its way.
I’ve really fallen in love with your blog and the Bumbling Band.
Amazingly, their their comments often reflect precisely how I feel and think myself. You must feel that all the time…
There you go! It’s the “you get a bra! and you get a bra! and YOU GET A BRA!” Oprah never did.
and lemmie say it first: I know the bra doesnt come in XL or XXL and I *know* we are all kinds of opinionated about that.
We do, however, finally have the ear of someone in the apparel industry.
She’s listening—git to talking.
