About Brand: Koral Activewear was created by Brazilian designer Ilana Kugel along side her business partner and industry expert, Peter Koral. This line of luxury activewear seeks to take the Brazilian roots of Kugel and fuse them with high fashion seen on runways in New York and Los Angeles. Kugel's designs and detailing are often works of art that highlight the feminine form by creating flatering edgy looks are fashion forward and incredibly functional. Her vision has launched the world of designer activewear into the stratosphere of fashion. Her pieces are designed to function through the most intense workout with high quality fabrics and contour stitching.
Key Pieces: The Lusterous Legging quickly became one of our top selling leggings. They features a cool sheen remeniscent of leather and silk. This legging comes in black, fuchsia, and navy.
Where to Wear it: The question here isn't where to wear Koral Activewear, but where not to wear it! The only thing we could come up with is that it's probably not wedding dress material! We love our Koral Activewear so much we've worn it everywhere from the pool (yeah, those bras make AWESOME swimsuit tops) to a fancy party! We love those Lusterous Leggings paired with Black Booties and a crop top or long sweater.
Why We Love Them: Whether you're headed to hot yoga or a night out Koral is excellent for combining high fashion aesthetic and athletic wear. The fabrics are extremely high quality and the construction is excellent. We also love the Brazilian influence of sporty and sexy.
Sizing Feedback: We've found Koral to run fairly true to size, but perhaps runs a little small if you aren't looking for the compression element of your workout wardrobe. The stretch and fabric do qualify this brand to be considered a compression fabric, which helps with muscle fatigue and keeps your workout clothing in place for your whole workout regardless of intensity.
KORAL ACTIVEWEAR REVIEWS:
"I'm in love with this bra!!! I have a small chest and it is actually flattering! That's s win for me!" (via Evolvefitwear.com)
"i'm a bit out of proportion, so i wasn't sure whether i should order the XS or the S. i am 5'6" and wear a 30C. i usually go with a size small in most brands, but the band is sometimes a little looser than i would like. with x-small, i run into the problem of the straps being too short, since i am of average height. with this bra, i went with the size chart and ordered the XS, and i think i made the right decision. it's a lovely bra... high quality and great design, and though i wish the straps were just a tad bit longer, i think it will work for me."

"These [Lustrous Leggings] are amazingly flattering, comfortable and spunky!" (via Evolvefitwear.com)
"I ordered a size x-small and they fit perfectly, I am normally a 0-2 in skinny jeans. They feel like compression tights, they are very breathable, and feel like velvet on my hands. They look amazing on as well, the sheen they have highlights what few curves I have. The sheen itself is more of a highlight/iridescence rather than a liquid latex/leather look to give you reference. The pants also have an accent of a key pocket on the right side of the waistband that will come in handy for an ID card or a key. I own a few UnderArmor leggings and a lululemon pair and the Koral Activewear seems to be a step up from that in quality. I would recommend this brand to a friend who wants to invest in good activewear that is also fashionable." (via Amazon.com)
"WOW! These pants definitely have the Wow factor. They fit as expected/according to size chart. I'm 5'7", muscular/athletic, tiny waist, but definite hips and a round bottom, around 135-140 lbs and small fit me beautifully. Just enough compression to be flattering but not "squeezing" you like a sausage and held up well during even intense work outs." (via Amazon.com)
"I love these leggings [Vitality Capri]! I wore them to a barre class the other day and got so many compliments on them. In a sea of black leggings, these are a fun and comfortable way to do something different. They are very comfortable and the fabric is silky smooth. They have fast become a favorite!" (via Amazon.com)
