a critique by Beth Adair
The Lucas Hugh performance tights are fabulous. I was recently in London on a work trip with my job as a flight attendant & went by the Lucas Hugh store located off of Sloan Square. Crew is exempt from quarantines. I wore a mask around town & have regular temperature screenings prior to signin with my job.
If you can’t get to London, you can find their clothing online at www.LucasHugh.com, at the flagship store in Kensington, or in Harrod’s. The brand was on recommendation from the marketer at Equinox in Kensington.
I was looking for a pair of solid colored dark tights, preferably in Navy or black. I’m pretty active and like for my clothes to fit well and I look for fabrics that are washable, by machine or hand wash.
The performance V2 leggings are fabulous. They have a waist band that will stay in place, as well as a zippered pocket on the back of the waist band that is about 3″ X 3″ wide. There are breathable fabrics located on the back of the knees, too. This is especially nice as I live in Florida and sweat a good bit.
Both the performance tights and top are made of 59% Polyhamide and 41% Elastane, made in Portugal & specify not to dry clean or tumble dry. Machine wash in cold water only and line dry immediately after wash.
I’m training for my first bikini model contest located in Canada in October. The event is with the SAFCompetitions.com. Maybe the directors there in Canada might like an invite to any fitness events in London.
Picture shows me outside of the store. A passerby took the picture. I was there a tad late to shop at the flagship store, so I went down to Harrod’s . I needed to get gift chocolates there anyway.
