Lifestyle expert Melissa Ireland shows off the newest trends in back-to-school gear.
On the field, in the gym or on the court, Dragonwing girlgear is changing athletics as we know it! Dragonwing girlgear wants to empower girls to play their best without worrying about their changing figure or body image through age-appropriate sports attire and underwear including bras, camies, compression shorts and accessories. They are all designed specifically to fit a girl’s figure and to meet the technical demand of the sports she plays. Girls love the appealing, excellent fit, design and technical performance presented in a fun, empowering style of sportswear. Dragonwing girlgear was developed by a soccer mom who wanted to help her daughter find a supportive but comfortable line of underwear and help her feel confident… so she could spend her time on the game, rather than her undergarments. Dragonwing fabrics provide UV 50 protection. The moisture-wicking feature is part of the fabric, not topical treatment, so it won’t wear away with washing. Mesh shorts and racer bra will keep girls cool, even under clothes. www.dragonwinggirl.com
