We all know the struggle to find clothing that works well with motherhood. We want to be comfortable and ready to take on anything, but we also want to be confident and on trend. Our friends at Zuma Blu understand just how important it is that we as moms feel great about ourselves in the clothing we are wearing. Zuma Blu Co-Founder, Lea Leapold, a mom herself, designs beautiful fitness apparel in a way that is thoughtful and practical, but also fashionable.
Lea shares the story of how Zuma Blu came to be:
We often get asked about our name. Zuma was our favorite beach in Malibu when we lived in Southern California. It’s where we met friends on the weekends, learned to surf, and even swam with dolphins in the wild! When we go to our “happy place” in our minds, we go to Zuma Beach, and the predominant color is Blu.
At Zuma Blu, we’re dedicated to building your confidence. We all have dreams. Some of us pursue them while others play it safe. Confidence empowers us to make decisions out of strength and not fear, which sets us on the path to pursue the best possible version of ourselves. Confidence turns down the volume on the voices of judgment and amplifies the voices of encouragement. We want to be a voice in your mind that inspires you to pursue your dreams and live a life that constantly inspires you. That may come in the form of body confidence in some or even the confidence to try your first triathlon!
Because confidence-development begins in adolescence, we believe bully-prevention programs can help lay a solid foundation of confidence for our kids and future generations. That’s why we’ll give 10% of our annual profits to school programs that help build confidence in kids to foster kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. We chose this mission because of my own bullying experience in high school. It’s something I still carry with me today and why this cause is so personal for me.
Here are just a few of the features we absolutely loved about Zuma Blu’s incredible line of fitness apparel:
Mindful design. Zuma Blu has us moms in mind with their pieces that are truly designed to fit and flatter. This three-pocket flow tank is one of our favorites with its wide straps and crew neckline. We also love the banded bottom that creates a loose, flowy fit! For nursing mamas or for those of us a little ah-em *blessed* in the chest region, these tops are a goldmine. The last thing you want when you are doing push-ups is your shirt hanging down, leaving you uncomfortable and exposed. With this top, you are completely covered and held in!
Pockets. Need we say more? One of the features that we find most unique about Zuma Blu’s clothing is that many of the pieces feature these amazing pockets. Several of their tops feature three huge pockets across the back – perfect for your phone, keys, and other essentials. The pants also have pockets on the sides and waistband. Our favorite part is that the fabric doesn’t sag with the weight of the items in the pockets!
Versatility. We adore how Zuma Blu can be worn not only for workouts, but for everyday #momlife. The pieces are just as comfortable for working out in as they are to wear while running errands, taking the kids to the park or lounging in the car on a road trip up north. A new staple in our wardrobes are these active shorts that have built-in underwear and a bunch of pockets big enough to hold a phone and small wallet. Paired with a simple t-shirt, these are go-to shorts for taking a long walk with the kids to the park followed by a quick Target run. Zuma Blu also has a great line of casual tanks, which we love for their softness and cut. They look totally cute with a pair of denim shorts or a sweater over the top!
Flexible fit. The fabric of the clothing is super soft and flexible. It also holds you in and gives a tight fit without feeling restricting. We especially love the fit of the high-waisted capris, which are very mom-friendly! You can bend, twist, and move easily while feeling like you are held in closely. Also worth noting are the mesh vents, which are great for cooling off and keeping you dry during your workouts. In addition to the fit, the fabrics also come in unique and fun patterns. We love the idea of pairing these beautiful prints with neutrals for a complementary look!
