About this project
As a Brazilian-American, I founded Corpão Fitness in 2012 from a tiny studio in New York City with little more than a drive to share my love of fitness and Brazil. Today, Corpão is a Brazilian-inspired wellness and lifestyle brand dedicated to playful workouts and bold activewear. The Corpão Capri is the first piece in my Corpão Activewear Collection.
I spent nearly two years creating the Corpão Capri so that it would snugly fit multiple body types and live up to the kind of workouts that I program as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. It's designed to allow for maximum comfort and free movement during any type of activity.
Say goodbye to bunching, slipping, itching, odors, sweat stains and ridiculous price tags. And oi (hello) to the bold, beautiful, Brazilian $49 Corpão Capri! Come be Brazilian with me!
The $49 Corpão Capri
This is why you'll want it!
Fits multiple body types. Too many women struggle with workouts because they are bigger, shorter or curvier than the "norm." Regardless of your measurements, the Corpão Capri is designed with a high waist and strategic - yet flattering - flatlock seams to ensure a snug and very comfortable fit.
It also gives you a fabulous, rounded bum!
Amazingly soft and ridiculously weightless. We used the same high performance fabric found in expensive athletic wear so you can expect a lush, luxurious pant that won't weigh you down; it feels a bit like wearing a soft cloud!
Style and quality without the price tag. Corpão Capris are constructed in the U.S. by a factory that specialises in luxury activewear. They are then individually decorated with images of Brazil. All this makes the production process more expensive but because we sell direct, it'll never be passed on to you. The result is workout pants that look and feel fabulous but still fit within smaller budgets.
A touch of Brazil. From the bright color blocking patterns and eye-catching images of Brazil to the figure-flattering seams - these pants are made for you to uncover your inner Brasileira!
American Born. Brazilian Inspired.
Corpão Fitness is all about releasing the inner Brazilian; celebrating life, delicious food and good company while embracing wellness as a lifestyle, not just a goal. An active, Brazilian life is one of lots of laughs, play and dance. It's life as it SHOULD BE. Our goal is to encourage this lifestyle among as many people as possible; a good part of that means making it AFFORDABLE.
The Corpão Capri is very much a part of this mission. It's bold, Brazilian-inspired workout gear that is designed for performance but at a reasonable price.
However, we need your help! Our initial production order requires minimums for both fabric and cut/sew so that we can keep the price low for you at $49. The $5,000 we're looking to raise will allow us to meet these minimums. So come and enter the Brazilian family! All those who pledge will be the first to know about our Brazilian events, products and workouts!

Risks and challenges
The Corpão Capri took over a year and a half to develop from inception to production. During that time, we tested it on clients, athletes and everyday women of all sizes and shapes. It underwent hundreds (literally) of workouts and fitness classes. Through all the wear, tear and washings, it maintained it's shape and softness. In twelve years as a fitness enthusiast, Chardét has sweat in pretty much every athletic brand of clothing out there but none of them had the right fit, the right style AND the right (affordable!) price until the Corpão Capri. She's certain that you'll feel the same way!
However, as with any new product, there are issues that are sometimes beyond the control of the designer. This is true, in particular, of the fulfilment process. There is the possibility that our estimated shipping date may need to be pushed out if demand exceeds the supply available or puts unusual stress on the production schedule of our factory. That said, we will do everything to get them to you on time!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
