Fit Review Friday Athleta Mantra Capri + July 4th Sales!

Happy Friday everyone! This weekend for those of us in the US, celebrate 4th of July! I'm lucky enough that I get a four day weekend. 😁 Sarah, one of my readers convinced me to buy these Mantra Capri's from Athleta.  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms. This translates to a size PXS for Athleta. Mantra Capri Abyss Size PXS These are made of Powervita fabric. These are high-rise, but I found the waist to sit right underneath my belly button. The waistband is comfortable. I found these to be light in compression. The mesh detail on the calves provide extra ventilation.  As you can see these fit me almost perfectly throughout and even on my thin calves. The length on these are 19.5 inches.

Guest Review! Athleta Mantra Capri in Abyss!

Sarah was nice enough to send me some photos of her Mantra Capri's from Athleta.

Luckily I had a good excuse as I need a new bikini which I also ordered from Athleta (which I also love and am keeping).

The Powervita fabric is amazing, it feels quite 'velvety' but does't seem like it will pill. It reminds me the most of Nulux or this year's brushed luxtreme from Lulu. It is quite lightweight but still opaque in the bend test. The calves fit nice and snug, but not too tight and the mesh is not scratchy at all. The waistband is very comfortable and not too high.
