  • Products Made by Women for Women

    As a female owned company at Ladies Only Sports we not only hand pick every product we carry, test it {one of the perks of being in the biz} but we also pride ourselves on carrying product made by other female owned companies. You can always tell when something has been designed by a woman; it fits the curves, has give in the right places, and has function along with fashion. After all, women know the female body the best. Some of our best sellers are products from female owned manufacturers…
    The Handful Bra was created by a fitness enthusiast, Jennifer Ferguson, in Portland, Oregon. Jennifer was an exercise instructor who had searched in vain for years for the perfect sports bra before she finally deciding to develop one herself. Turned out to be a good move, Handful is one of our more popular sports bras {and soon to be tanks} here at LOS. The Handful Bra is even an approved mastectomy bra, supporting breast cancer survivors during treatment and their return to good health and fitness. Check out our Handful selection at LOS.
    Enell Sports Bras were developed by Renelle Braaten out of her own frustration as well. As a well-endowed {self described} woman and avid volleyball player she found the only way she could get support was by wearing two bras. Not comfortable or practical. With the help of her mother’s sewing abilities they came up with what is now the perfect bra for busty women. Oprah of course blew the top off the place when she declared the Enell Sports bra one of her favorite things. For busty gals there is no other like the Enell to hold the girls in place.

    Smarty Pants, the underwear for active women, is a great alternative to thongs or panties. If you are tired of wedgies or the damage a thong can do to the lady bits then Smarty Pants is a perfect solution. Developed by Korrine Fitz, Smarty Pants is a bike short type design of a thin technical fabric that can be worn under any sports garment {or any garment for that matter}, it doesn’t ride up and eliminates the dreaded pantyline.
    Skirt Sports, was started by triathlete Nicole DeBoom, who wanted to compete in something that looked feminine, but still had all the function of a sport short. With that Skirt Sports was born in 2003. Nicole was the first to bring skirts to the sports apparel industry. Now many athletes are donning her brilliant designs, many of which are outfitted with a compression type short beneath the skirt. Styles range from a sports dress, golf regulation length skirt, gym skirt, and even a skirt with capris beneath it. And did I mention they are out of Boulder? Everything to come out of Boulder is cool, right?

    Katie Kozloff came up with the idea for Taffy while she was working as a personal trainer at a local Philadelphia gym. She noticed that the larger women that frequented the gym were wearing baggy t-shirts and unflattering sweatpants to work out. Katie did some research and found there are some options for workout clothing for plus-size women, but much of what was available was not stylish, flattering or attractive. Katie realized there was a need for stylish activewear for curvier women. As a result, Katie created Taffy, a new line of yoga and activewear designed specifically for women size 14 – 24. Katie’s goal is to help plus-size women feel confident about the way they look in activewear, so that whatever their goal, they will lead healthier, more active lives. All Taffy pieces are cut to fit and flatter curvier shapes, and are super comfortable, yet hold their shape.
    Cynthia Tivers was a visionary for plus size women’s clothing. She realized that women that were larger than size 12 still wanted the support of fashionable, high quality, form fitting clothes to work out in. Cynthia realized that by making clothes that made plus size women comfortable and confident it would give them the emotional boost they needed to look good while they reached their health and fitness goals. And thus A Big Attitude, or ABA as we refer to them, was born. Now it's more than a dozen years later and A Big Attitude clothing has proven its value in the spotlight. A Big Attitude has been supplying apparel for the contestants on NBC’s hit show THE BIGGEST LOSER for years now, a show that helps people all over the country aspire for a healthier lifestyle. At LOS we carry a wide range of ABA products that can help you attain your fitness goal.
    We know you have choices in where to buy your fitness wear, but know that when you shop at Ladies Only Sports we are a boutique that has truly tested and hand-picked each and every product on our website. And given the choice we always choose a small, or female owned companies over a mass manufacturer to supply us our exceptional goods. We do love a little bit of girl power!

  • Fashion takes hold in fitness – the return of the skirt for the feminine workout

    It's not just Gucci who's color blocking. Color blocking is trending to running wear. Color blocking’s bold colors—two or three broad bands of color—take the challenge out of keeping a feminine look while working up a sweat. In athletic wear, color blocking must maintain its low-maintenance features including straight-out-of-the-dryer ease. When a woman looks good and feels good, she’s at her best. Our top pick for spring is the pop of pink the Touring Skirt by Lole  paired with the Super Cute & Stylish Stamina Tank.

    Did we say skirt? Absolutely. As we approach the summer months, women everywhere are turning up the heat on their wardrobe and their workouts to include sport skirts. Ladies Only Sports outfits women of all sizes in workout wear including workout skirts and dresses by the brand Skirt Sports, the pioneer of feminine workout wear. Skirt Sports was born in 2004 when professional triathlete Nicole DeBoom won an Ironman wearing a homemade skirt. From there she set out to create a business of weaving fashion and performance into one flattering workout skirt style. DeBoom is on a mission to banish the boyish look and, "inspire the whole world to convert to the skirt."

    Wicking is the buzzword in workout wear—for good reason. Fabric that wicks away sweat instead of causing the material to cling and stay damp makes your exercise routine more comfortable. And it’s better for your skin. When sweat is trapped up against the skin, blemishes are significantly more likely to break out. Wearing outfits that wick allows your skin to breath. Ladies Only Sports carries a variety of sports bras, camis, T-shirts, tank tops, shorts, capris and skirts.

    The modern woman has things to do and places to be. There’s no time for a full wardrobe change between errand and elliptical{or as some of us like to say Core Power to happy hour.} Our reports indicate an increase in street wear-inspired threads in the gym. The Lole line is especially versatile.  Tuck your essential away with the Shadow Pack by Nathan, the lightweight waist pack that has just enough room for a cell phone, ID, credit card and a lip balm.

    Just for fun, Ladies Only Sport added whimsical runner charms to our arsenal of accessories. Styles include plenty of sterling silver 26.2’s and 13.1’s as well as the "Run like a girl" and "Will run for cupcakes" charms. This could be exactly what your necklace has been missing: the spring bling with a sporty attitude.

    Gather your girls, slip on a sporty skirt and pop into the Zumba studio, and by the time the endorphins kick in you'll forget if your out on the town or busy burning calories.

    Ladies Only Sports is the source for sports bras, tops, bottoms, gear – and, of course, workout fashion for the active woman.
