We’ve weathered naked scrunch bum leggings through the winter, and now gym-goers will be copping an eyeful in Spring as very avant-garde piece from an Aussie label takes the activewear world by storm.
Crontology Active is a Melbourne-based activewear line that specialises in asymmetrical, fashion-forward looks for those who are looking for a workout, with a side of style.
It is their cut-out Curve Bodysuit, however that is really making a splash with activewear lovers.
Curve Bodysuit sends gym-goers gaga
The suit is a full-leg number, with a scoop cut out in the middle of the one-piece exposing half the upper-midriff to the elements.
It may be short a few inches of material, but the suit will still set you back about $220 and is touted as ‘the perfect fit for everybody.
Modelled in a variety of sizes, the look is surprisingly flattering on a range of body types.
Worn by US influencer and nutritionist Bianca Gasparro, the suit had gym-goers going gaga for the designer number.
“This one-piece is life,” one woman wrote.
“That bodysuit is insane,” another agreed.
“Obsessed with this bodysuit!” another wrote.
“Love the workout outfit,” was yet another ecstatic reaction.
MasterChef judge Melissa Leong is another fan of the suit, sporting it back in February.
The suit was initially released in 2018, and is gaining traction this year as activewear comes to the fore of fashion thanks to months of lockdown dressing down.
The Aussie label is certainly most fashion-forward with their famous suit, but have a few other unusual pieces to their name as well.
Their Performance Rib Crop features cutaway detail, as well as semi-detached sleeves, making for an artful, but unusual fit.
Melissa was also a fan of the $149 crop, showing it off in a more recent snap shared to Instagram.
It’s not the first unusual gym trend to make waves this year.
The scrunch bum fit popular on legging and bike shorts is so divisive it saw one woman kicked out of a gym in Sydney last month.
In a confusing tale, Sydney-sider Gabi Watson went to the gym in perfectly normal workout wear - a crop top and scrunch bum bike shorts - but was shocked when she was asked to leave due to her outfit, after a staff member asked her “are you wearing a g-string?”.
Gabi was initially told a school teacher supervising a gym class had complained, but later found out it was the gym staff who decided her attire was unacceptable.
