FAVORITE FIND: Shiva Top from Athleta

Earlier this year, I met with a friend who is designing the ultimate modest workout top.  She's also a Muslim woman, and after coaching a Muslim girls youth soccer league, she's applying her engineering skills to addressing the gap in modest workout clothing.  I'm really excited about the product she will bring to the table.

In the meantime, the search for modest workout clothes continues, but this top from Athleta makes the fight just a bit easier.

The Shiva Top, on sale for $34.99, features a long hemline, falling well past the waistline, for an easy fit and maximum torso coverage.  The 3/4 length sleeves are ruched to allow ample movement while still providing coverage, and the top curves gracefully along your torso without clinging too tight in the wrong places. The one thing this shirt is missing is the ability to wick sweat away, which I almost always prefer in a workout top - however, for the coverage and comfort, I'm willing to let that go this one time. The Shiva Top is on my "to buy" list and in so many different colors, you're sure to find your perfect one too.
