Review: Marika Venus Crew Neck Dry Wik Short Sleeve Tee

My Dear Friends,

I'm blogging about a familiar face today - the Marika® Brand.  They've got a new product out called the Marika® Venus Crew Neck Dry Wik Short Sleeve Tee.  

Our new Marika® Tek line,” says Marika’s Executive VP/General Manager, Carrie Henley, “gives active women what they’ve been telling us they want: the most advanced, effective moisture-wicking performance, in stylish dedicated athletic wear that features tried and tested shapes built for the ultimate in fit, form and function.” Whether it’s for the gym, yoga, Pilates or jogging, indoors or outdoors, Marika® Tek takes “basics” and pushes them to a new level of performance. In a line that can be mixed and matched with itself and just about any existing item in every woman’s workout wardrobe, Marika® Tek offers an EXCLUSIVE breathable, super soft, high tech wicking fabric and finish (Dry-Wik®) for the ultimate in cool dry comfort. The Dry-Wik®) technology wicks away moisture, making for an enjoyable workout. Marika® Tek is a collection that women will want to buy and build upon on a regular basis. Its initial debut a year ago proves that assertion, with robust sales reporting for the collection. Marika products deliver on both the fashion appearance and functional levels, so that active consumers can feel confident buying the brand which offers a huge variety to suit all needs.” 

Marika® is a fantastic wellness brand that strives to promote health, happiness and success of busy women everywhere.  The company realizes that everyday life can bring the unexpected so Marika® focuses on providing today's resilient women with comfortable, functional, beautiful active-wear that carries them through various activities and occasions with polish and without breaking the bank. 

The Marika® Venus Crew Neck Dry Wik Short Sleeve Tee is a crew neck tee designed to give you that ultimate fit, comfort and function that enables you perform at the highest levels during your workout.  Each tee has been crafted with high tech fabric for moisture wicking capabilities.  As as special treat to FITF bloggers, Marika® wants to offer you a 20% discount on any purchase through September.  Simply use code "TEK20" to get 20 % off Marika® Tek & all other clothing products.  

 I'm reviewing item "M-4818" from the Marika® Tek collection.  The base colors include Fandango Pink w/ neon yellow trim and Ultra Violet with lime green trim.  Sizes run S-M-L-XL.  The fabric is an easy care, washable rayon/poly blend.  The suggested retail is $28 (but with the special discount code listed above, you can get one for just $22.40!).  I truly enjoy this shirt.  As someone who is trying to lose weight and maintain a healthier lifestyle, I do a fair amount of working out.  Typically, shirts get sweaty and clingy...but not this one.
