Wear it to your next workout class

No matter what time of year it is, workout classes are never out of fashion, and we love sporting the Play Dress in them! Our dress has all of the components of your typical athletic wear with some vital differences that make it the best option for your upcoming fitness class.

Many workout dresses lack the comfort and performance to support you throughout an intense workout. Think sweaty underboobs, constantly adjusting your bra, uncomfortable camel toe…need we say more. The Play Dress, however, offers top-line support to your boobs with a comfortable, yet secure shelf bra. The dress also features adjustable straps for easy customization, so you can focus on your form, not your bra.

The built-in shorts are ideal, complete with pockets in case you want to keep your valuables close to you. The shorts are seamless in the crotch, which means you won’t have to deal with uncomfortable camel toe, and our leg grippies prevent chafing by keeping the shorts in place.

Finally, since the Play Dress is made from the same quick-drying swim fabric as our bikinis, you can trust the dress will hold up no matter how active you are. Just take it from our customer Rachael who wore the dress for a triathlon!

From spin to barre to Pilates, this dress supports you however you love to move. Don’t just trust us, try it!

Make it an evening outfit

A Kitty team favorite is to take the Play Dress from day to night in a flash. The silhouette of the Play Dress is super similar to the classic mini dresses that flood your Pinterest board, making it the easiest way to put these athletic dresses to more than one use! If you’re nervous about the dress being too breezy in the chillier weather, don’t fret. Since it’s made from our buttery soft swim fabric, the dress has a touch more protection from the elements than other dresses you’ll find on the market that are made from polyester.  

Our top outfit tip:Transform your day outfit into the perfect evening look by pairing the Play Dress with chunky boots, a chic jacket, and a bold makeup look. You’ll be ready to hit the dance floor in no time. Need some more inspo? Check out these 10 outfits we put together here.

Dress it up for a day in the office
While the work from home life has been the norm, many of us are heading back into the office. Spruce up your biz fit with the Play Dress for a comfortable, work friendly ensemble. We love this fit for the office because it’s the mix of dressy & casual and is modest enough to pair with your existing go-to business pieces. Blazers, tights, loafers, and chunky sweaters are easy-peasy items to elevate your Play Dress and feel ready for the next meeting. The dress’ vibrant colorways add pops of fun to otherwise basic looks. 

Bring it on your camping or hiking adventure

The Play Dress was built to go on any adventure you plan and will last you year after year. Camping and hiking bode well with our dress with its durable, yet cute features that can withstand any terrain. For hiking and camping in hotter temps, the Play Dress is perfect for its quick-drying swim fabric, so you can take a dip into the nearest lake or river along the trail. The fabric also offers SPF-50 sun protection. For hiking and camping in cooler weather, this dress can easily be paired with your favorite puffer jacket, hiking boots, and thermal stocks as a way to keep warm but still look chic.

And of course, swim in it!

Our favorite part of the Play Dress is that it is a hybrid swim-meets-exercise dress! You can feel supported and enjoy the freedom of movement in and outside the water. In the Spring, we love the dress to wear during a post-gardening run through the sprinkler. In the Summer, it’s unbeatable for an ocean-friendly fit you can wear from the beach to the seafood shack and, of course, right back to the beach. In the Fall, the Play Dress works best for quick dips in waterfalls, rivers, and lakes on hiking trips. And in the Winter, you can enjoy the Play Dress while hot tubbing or cold plunging (YOLO).
