"Create the things that you wish existed"
Basically, I have always had a butt. Particularly in summer, I find it most comfortable to train in short shorts but have always had trouble to find a pair that will still be keeping my rear end covered 2 minutes into a workout (which is not nice for anyone). I needed something slightly longer without looking like granny-pants, and in a fabric and design that was also comfortable, flexible and wouldn't ride up as I moved. On top of this I wanted a wide top band that could be folded down without giving a "muffin top" or left up for a little more mid-section coverage or stylish high-waisted look. And most importantly looked awesome.
When on holiday in Brazil in Feb 2015, I discovered a type of premium fabric that over the coming months of international travel and investigation I was unable to find anywhere else in the world, and so decided to create my brand there. The bright colours of Brazilian fashion reflect my enthusiasm for life and were the perfect inspiration for the Mathie Athletic brand, and my luxe women's fitness wear label was born. Enjoy! :)
