Fashion-forward / high-tech Antigua women’s sportswear has it all
Reviewing women’s sports apparel, even golf apparel, is kind of a stretch for me, but I have an ace in the hole in this regard – two, in fact: my wife and my daughter. When I asked them if they would like to try some stylish new tops from Antigua they jumped at the chance, and I had a couple of willing test subjects/reviewers at the ready.
One caveat – neither my wife nor my daughter are golfers, but they do participate in other outdoor activities for which stretchy, comfortable tops made of moisture-wicking high-tech fabrics are desirable. Needless to say, the garments have to look good, too, and the Antigua tops garnered high praise in that department.
The variety of styles offered by Antigua in the women’s line will certainly meet the needs of just about any wearer. From button-up polos, like the Sequence, to the open V-neck Praise, snap-placket Hype, and Array 1/4-zip, the tops are well-made from Antigua’s 97% polyester/3% spandex Desert Dry™ fabric for sweat-free comfort in the warmest weather. Flat-sewn seams and roomy shoulder/sleeve construction ensure free-moving comfort for tennis or golf – or even bike rides, brisk walks, or light aerobics.
The Antigua line offers a range of colors and fabric finishes that will allow women to build a wardrobe with plenty of stylish variety. There are self-collars, knit collars, and Jacquard-pattern fabrics in a rainbow of colors and color combinations – even ombre-style fade-to-color styling, in the Hype snap-placket top.
My test subjects reported comfortable fit, no rubbing from seams, and no constriction of movement from their Antigua tops – and they remained comfortable to wear even in a recent stretch of warmer-than-usual weather here in the Bay Area. If you are a woman shopping for comfortable, stylish active-wear, or a man in the market for a gift for the active woman in your life, the Antigua line is worth a look.
Antigua products are available at most golf, tennis, and general sporting good stored, as well as online at http://shop.antigua.com/womens-apparel.html.
