What Run Oregon is Wearing: Nuu-Muu

At Run Oregon, we work hard and we play hard. It’s important to have clothes for both, so it’s a gift to find clothes that can multi-task as much as we do. Nuu-Muu clothes can be dressed up for an adventure downtown, dressed down for a power yoga class at the gym, or something in between.

Nuu-Muu products are easy to stand behind. The brand believes strongly in empowering women and bringing them quality products that look and feel great at the same time. The products are not only made right here in the USA, but Nuu-Muu are also members of the 1% for the Planet  and The Conservation Alliance,  so they believe in giving back.

Selection is always a good thing, and Nuu-Muu makes several styles of dresses and patterns to choose from. The classic “exercise-and-everything else” dress is not only cute, but it’s designed to cover most sports bras. There is also a scoop neck option and a pocket dress which has two hidden pockets at the lower back with a fabric closure. There are even kids dresses for the little ones! In addition to dresses, Nuu-Muu has tee shirts and arm sleeves to choose from in different colors and styles.

At Nuu-Muu, we believe that women’s exercise apparel can be functional and flattering, and should make a girl feel like a million bucks. With the goal of empowering women to love themselves into action, we design high-quality, light-hearted exercise dresses that look and feel amazing.

  • We believe in strong girls & women. 
  • We believe in real bodies & real friends.
  • We believe in trying really hard.
  • We believe in having fun along the way.
  • We believe that you can too.

Nikki: I had the pleasure of reviewing the scoop neck dress. I chose the Heaven pattern, which was a beautiful mix of blues, greens, and purples. The material initially reminded me of a good quality swimsuit. It was sturdy and soft, not too thick but not too thin. I tried it on and the cut was very flattering. It hit all the right spots in the right way. As promised, it covered my sports bra completely, and the cut under the arms was perfect, which can be hit or miss in many sleeveless tops. The skirt part of the dress came down to just above my knees and there were a couple of small slits along the sides that helped ease movement. The two hidden pockets along the lower back were a nice touch as well. I didn’t even notice they was there until I read about this feature.

The best thing I can say about this dress is that I didn’t notice it at all. This is a true compliment to Nuu-Muu because I don’t often wear dresses for working out or for casual wear, and I think I will use this one for both. I can see this dress being a great option for yoga followed by coffee with friends in the summertime, or for a day at the park with my kids. I could run or work out in this easily too. You can throw this dress on and it will stay put where you want it. The material is totally “wash and wear” too.. It won’t wrinkle and it’s super low maintenance, which is what I need more of in my life.

Mindy: I had the opportunity to review the NUU-Tee in Plum. The material is a mix of polyester, organic cotton and spandex. The tee is very soft, has just the right amount of thickness and keeps its shape very well. The shape is very flattering. It is slightly longer in the back, and is perfect for those of us with longer torsos. The shirt has a great cut and fit. It is slightly tighter than most of my long sleeve tees, but not to the point where you can see every line from undergarments. The thumbholes are an added bonus to this top. I wore this tee running, to my fitness class, and even to pick up the kids from preschool. This tee has not only been my go to tee for working out, but for running errands and wearing around the house. It is flattering enough to even wear with jeans.

Initially, when I received this top, I was in love with the material and the look. I honestly, have never heard of Nuu-Muu before, and now after reviewing their NUU-Tee and learning about their company, I am blown away at how amazing they are. Their beliefs, the materials they use in their products and the organizations they supports are just a few of the reasons that make this company great. I highly recommend their products, especially the NUU-Tee.
