Dragonwing Girls: Athletic Gear Just for Girls


Got a strong, sporty girl? You need to know about Dragonwing Girl Gear. To help explain the story of the brand and to give you a first-person review, we enlisted the help of our 8th-grade intern. 

I was so excited to get these clothes; I picked them out on, practically buzzing with anticipation. I love shopping and I had just discovered Dragonwing Girlgear, on my own when Nicole emailed me about the review, which made me want the workout gear even more. Dragonwing Girlgear is a a tween and teen girls athletic wear brand that’s embarking on a mission to change how girls play sports.

Here's the deal--Dragonwing Girlgear wants girls to be able to concentrate on their sports without worrying about adjusting their sports bra or tugging down their shorts.

You never know what to expect with online shopping. I worried that they wouldn’t fit upon my arrival to Brooklyn. Although I was super enthusiastic about the styles, I didn’t really get the difference between Dragonwing Girlgear and department store athleticwear. I’ve always been really sporty and play on a ton of teams, but usually I just wear my uniform or shirts from soccer camp and shorts from Target. It all seemed good enough.

As soon as the Dragonwing Girlgear arrived and I slipped on the clothes, I could feel the change. You know when you try something on and it just makes you feel great? My heart literally swelled when I put the outfit on!

Let's get to some details. I love the material the Racer sports bra was made of. It’s soft, snug, and oh-­so-­stretchy. The dragonfly design on the back is really cute, and the long length combined with the wide band means that it stays in place without digging into your skin. I normally don’t wear a sports bra anytime I don’t have to, but I want to wear this everywhere.

Keeping your New Year's resolutions

The New Year is off to a fresh start, and many of us are committed to doing something or many things with more intention this year. But it's tough to stay on track. In fact, “Quitters Day”, which falls on January 14th this year, is the day when most people give up. How can you more

The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe

We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family more

The Chillweight leggings feel soft and fuzzy inside without being bulky or thick. They fit amazingly, and are perfect for running, as a base layer for skiing, or just on a casual day. They also have a handy little pocket that fits my phone keys, or a few dollars.

I already have two tops that I wear under my soccer jersey on cold days, but the Dragonwing Chill­Weight top is going to jump to the front of the line every single time. It’s warm and soft, made of the same material as the leggings. It has a panel on the wrist of each sleeve to wipe sweaty foreheads or running noses, and (drumroll please…) it has thumbholes!

These clothes fit and suit me to a “t”, and have all the little details that make a big difference. Shopping always seems to be a trade ­off. If you want a high­tech sports bra, it has to be expensive and or if it's cheap it doesn't fit well. With Dragonwing, there’s none of that.

The clothes are made just for girls’ bodies, and they’re all age ­appropriate. By that I mean, none of the bras are padded or lacy, and everything is snug, but not tight. All the clothes have flat seams and tags, so there’s no rubbing or discomfort. I think that the discrepancy in quality between girls and boys activewear is stupid and shouldn’t even exist, but as long as it’s a problem, Dragonwing Girlgear is here to fix it.

Dragonwing Girlgear knows that girls, come in all shapes and sizes, especially while they’re developing as tweens and teens. They don’t size by age. Because really, a 12-year-old doesn't come in a standard size, but in general the clothes are designed for girls ages 10­ to 15. I was blown away by the quality and fit of these clothes, and I’m now ready for any below freezing winter soccer games!
