Fitgymwear was founded in 2002 and manufactures each collection locally, but Brazil is where the brand's beginnings can be traced back to. Since its online shop launch in 2017, the Fitgymwear range includes women’s activewear, yoga wear, leisurewear, menswear and accessories.

The company says the partnership with Boddington was inspired by their shared love for design and detail.

As the owner of the Candibod brand, Boddington is a clean-eating fitness enthusiast who likes to experiment and share the things in life that inspire her. Commenting on the collaboration, Boddington says, “After a few meetings, a factory visit and learning the in’s and out’s of their ethical manufacturing, I was sold.”

The new Fitgymwear X Bod collection pays homage to the retailer's bestsellers and simple fashion basics, with a fresh take on colour and fabric. Described as "a functional range made for comfort and style", the attractive blush pink colour and fabric detail enhances shape and movability.

The Wonder fabric selection is a quality composition of polyamide and spandex designed to provide excellent elasticity and suitable support, and providing comfort and ease of movement while being soft on the skin - whether worn for yoga or high-intensity workouts.

"Our mutual love for design and detail is a perfect example of how each of our strengths have come together to create this amazing range,” says Fitgymwear's Raelene Levy.

The Fitgymwear X Bod collection is available online via for a limited period.
