Abercrombie Athletic Clothes: YPB Review

abercrombie athletic clothes, Abercrombie, your personal best, ypb, leggings, workout clothes, exercise clothes

If you haven’t noticed, Abercrombie has completely transformed over the past several years. I was an original Abercrombie girl, that faded, as did the brand once controversial things came to light, but now they are back and better than ever, just like my love for the brand.

When I was in elementary and middle school, Abercrombie had their moose logo on everything and did not have an athletic clothing line.

When I became reintroduced to the brand when they re-released their company, I fell in love with most of their clothes. I was so impressed. So when they came out with their affordable athletic clothing line called, “Your Personal Best,” I was really excited to try the pieces. 


My favorite part of the collection is the leggings. For under $50 (on sale- which they often are) they are pretty incredible. They have the perfect amount of stretch and support, that holds everything in place. Even on me, at 5’9”, they are super high waisted. They come in short, regular and long lengths. I personally like a cropped legging, so I get the regular length, even though, the long length would be perfect for me. YPB sculptLUX 7/8-Length Leggings are the only bottoms I wear currently for exercise. 


I cannot speak more highly of these athletic leggings. I have over a dozen pairs. Unfortunately, I have had a couple of pairs where the threads have come loose after a dozen washes, but I contacted customer service and I was given replacement pairs. 


Until a couple of months ago, YPB only had “long lined sports bras” which I am not a fan of. They are supposed to replace regular sports bras by being long enough to be both a crop top and a sports bra. I don’t find these tops to be supportive or flattering as they roll up (I have a couple). Also, I don’t like showing my stomach during exercising, so I prefer to wear a regular sports bra with a tank top. 

With that being said, the only things I think the collection is missing are good sports bras and tank tops. They have released a couple of tanks and sports bras, but that’s still not enough for me not to shop elsewhere for tops and bras.


The shorts are great too! I have split shorts and unlined shorts. I personally hate shorts and hardly ever wear them because they always make my legs look wide because they always cut my leg off in a weird spot, but, less so with these.


If you are interested in trying out the brand, now’s the time as there is free shipping and an extra 15% off in cart.
