Giveaway: BornFit Elyse Jacket

I’ve included BornFit in my Strokes of Genius product reviews over the years because they really know how to make fitness clothing for women’s bodies. That extends to their fab maternity fitness line.

I adore BornFit’s running skorts–they’re flattering, and best of all, they don’t ride up the inner thighs like many other running skirts I’ve tested. The saucy pink Wilder Skort and the no-nonsense Oxford Skort are absolute staples. I also love the Elyse jacket–it was my workout buddy last winter, for sure. So not the kind of gym teacher jacket you might expect in that category.

BornFit would like to give an Elyse jacket to a lucky A la Mama reader. It’s pictured here in black and Tuscan Teal. Choose the color, size and designate “maternity” or not. The stitching and the asymmetrical zipper really make this piece a hip addition to your wardrobe, whether you’re taking a brisk walk, jogging, or just running errands with the kids.
