Our Jump Wrap Spandex are my favorite short we have.
Yes, I have a favorite child. I’m not above it, and I’m honest.
When I first tried out for volleyball in eighth grade, I asked my mom to buy me a thong. The spandex were tiny, and I didn’t want an underwear line. She gave me a hard ‘No.’ I’ve always translated ‘No,’ as ‘just not that way.’ I saved my $5 a week lunch money for 5 weeks, so I could go to Victoria’s Secret PINK and buy 5 thongs for $25.
I didn’t quite account for sales tax, so luckily a friend spotted me like $1.30. When I put my volleyball spandex on with my thong for the first time, I felt so uncomfy, especially because my glutes and leg are quite strong and big.
These were definitely not my baggy soccer or knee-length basketball shorts. It just all felt like…out there. I reflected on this when I made the Jump Wrap Spandex, really considering the impact I wanted them to have on our mindset and our performance.
The Jump Wrap Spandex give me strength and can withstand any endurance.
They have become the short that loves my body more, the longer I wear them—no seriously, they hug my body closer, the sweatier I get.
I can jump as high as I can and lift as much as I can, without worrying about my butt falling out or the spandex not being able to endure that much weight. They’re smooth and incredibly lightweight; I feel almost naked while also super supported. And lastly that waistband…it never pains my gut.
I made the waistband a bit longer and looser because we all have different torso lengths, our stomachs and hips are all different sizes, and we all bloat differently. Bottom line, I didn’t want our female athletes to feel self-conscious about the way their body felt in spandex.
I didn’t want any of you to feel like I did in my first pair of volleyball spandex, it’s hard enough becoming good at a new sport. It’s hard enough being loving to your body and fighting how hard we can be on ourselves. I wanted us to feel powerful, strong, and free.
Happy Jump Wrapping,
