As someone who participates in sports, goes to the gym often and runs a lot, I’m always looking for products that will help contribute to my healthy lifestyle in one way or another. When I’m shopping for gym clothes, I always consider the aesthetics, fit and comfort. I want my clothes to look great on me, fit well and feel comfortable to wear. Since I get quite a few messages from people asking me about my gear, I decided to write this review of Public Myth.

One time, I was browsing online fitness clothing sites and I kept on seeing the same types of standard fitness clothes over and over again-until I stumbled upon Public Myth. It was purely by accident that I found PM online. Whenever I find a company on the Internet, I make sure to read about it to see whether or not their values match what I believe in before I browse any further.
First, what really stood out to me was the slogan “Live with Passion.” I really like what it represents and what it stands for. To me, “Live with Passion” means “find something that you love to do and do it because the time that you spend on your passions is time extremely well-spent.”
Another thing that I really like about Public Myth is that all their clothes are made “with heart and soul in Canada”. The company is based out of Vancouver, BC. I love supporting and promoting local businesses especially because they have great quality product that I use on a regular basis.
I love Public Myth clothing because it fits me well. In addition to a good fit, the clothing is very comfortable to wear for my intense exercise sessions. Last but certainly not least-it looks great. Public Myth has successfully blended fashion and fitness and I like that.
In addition to the style, fit and comfort, I’m also looking for durability. Public Myth clothing is made to last. I’ve washed some of the colorful pieces that I own several times and the colors have not faded. The stitches did not fall apart, unlike some of the other fitness clothing I used to own prior to discovering PM.
Public Myth has a lot of beautiful, unique and well-made pieces of clothing, many of which could be dressed up to be worn to a night on the town. In addition to the aesthetic appeal of the clothes, the line is highly functional especially for going to the gym and jogging. I own a lot of pieces from Public Myth and there is a good reason as to why.
I have absolutely no hesitation recommending it to my friends, family and clients. It’s a great company. The owner is very service-oriented, in addition to being passionate about health and fitness, which adds to the genuineness of the company.
Although Public Myth clothing is not cheap, in my honest opinion, you get what you pay for. So, if you pay $10 for a sports bra at a big-box store, expect to get a cheaply-made, low quality product which won’t last you more than a few washes.
On the other hand, if you buy a $40 (or so) sports bra from Public Myth, a boutique store focusing on high quality fashionable fitness wear, you get a product that will last longer, look better and feel more comfortable to wear.
If you buy something from Public Myth, tell them I sent you 🙂
