Wilson gave us the opportunity to try on some of there tennis apparel, and try it we did! We tested the new Women's Hall of Fame tank and skirt, as well as the Women's Timeless tank and skirt, and when I say "tested," I mean we played in these babies multiple times in the hot sun, running around and sweating like maniacs all so we can give you a proper review of the clothing from style, to fit, and function. Let's start with the Hall of Fame tank (above) and skirt (below).
Hall of Fame Tank and Skirt
The fabric is 95% cotton and 5% spandex jersey knit. This retro line comes in both white and kiwi as well as white and new navy - both the skirt and the tank have the W crown logo embroidered on them (which is SUPER cute).
The fabric is very lightweight that protects against UV light as well as bacteria with nanoUV and nanoBAN technology. It also wicks away sweat with nanoWIK technology. As we all know, there are a lot of products that say they wick away sweat and they just don't, but this technology is just awesome. I sweat A LOT, like, Andy Roddick type of sweating, and the tank never felt heavy or wet. It was amazing!
The skirt is really cute with two front pockets and a comfortable wide elastic band at the top. My only complaint with the skirt, is that it doesn't have the attached undees so unless you want to let it all hang out, you need some leggings to go under it. I think it's still worth the purchase.
I wear a medium and both of these were true to size.
There is also a dress in this line and a long sleeve V-neck. I want.......
Timeless Tank and Skirt
My friend and avid tennis player Inyang tested the Timeless tank and skirt (above). The tank is made of a soft jersey and has an argyle liquid stretch body mapped pattern in the back (like the skirt), and comes with with a built in sports bra. It also has the same technology as the Hall of Fame Apparel with the added plus of the built in underwear in the skirt.
Inyang said that she was immediately complemented by her friends on how great the she looked in the kit. She was also super impressed about the pockets!
At first didn't notice the pocket for the ball and wondered why the skirt kinda puckered out on the left side. I got excited after I noticed the pocket! I was able to keep the ball tucked in nicely.
The thing she liked the best about the kit was the fit and the nanoWik:
The fit was really flattering. I played in 90F weather and didn't realize how wet I was until I took off the outfit later and noticed it was soaked.
She also said that it was true to size (she wore a small).
Overall, these are great buys if you play tennis regularly. The nanoWIK technology is, in our opinion, the best reason to pick this apparel over others.
