MODEST INNOVATION, MODEST PERFORMANCE.    

Who said you can't look good covered? Introducing Spark and Halo, the most advanced (and stylish) modest sportswear lines ever created. By combining a modest approach with modern style, we've created both garments with the sole purpose to give you the most functional, modest, and fashion-forward workout possible.

"This Kickstarter for Modest Athleisure Is So Genius." - Brit+Co

"It can be hard for women who seek less-revealing workout gear to find options tailored to their needs." - Time Magazine

Break The Rules because being a consumer is tough. Why does it always seem like we’re consistently being forced to settle for less than what we really want? Let’s face it.. the fashion industry is shifting and skin-tight, minimal skin coverage is the new norm. Billboards all throughout the cities subliminally telling you what your body should look like. Too short? Too bad. Too tight? Bump a couple sizes up. Society tells us to flaunt our bodies, but what if we don’t want to? Your clothing should always consist of two things, function and comfort. You should never have to sacrifice one for the other. By focusing mainly on our three core factors: modesty, functionality, and style, we were able to create sportswear to keep you both comfortable and covered during your workouts and activity, simultaneously.    

 

Modesty in the way one dresses can be the standard in certain cultures or faiths, but the wave has shifted to all aspects of the globe in every segment of the fashion world in recent years. Dressing modestly is not being self-conscious about your body, rather a way to avoid drawing unwanted attention and throwing ‘sexy’ in the backseat. “If you’ve got it, flaunt it” is old news and there is something to be finally said about covering yourself up.    

 

We recently asked a large number of female consumers about the difficulties they experience while shopping for sportswear, and we were blown away by the responses. It’s definitely an issue that needs to be fixed if you’re shopping in the men’s section. Seriously? You’re a woman.    

Feedback:

- “I have trouble finding a modest fit that is actually flattering. I have to shop in the men’s section just to get that modest look.”

- "I'm trying to exercise, not turn heads!"

- “The fact is that I can’t even find one garment that fits within the boundaries of modesty. Most of them are too tight or too short.”

- “Everything is too short and slim fitting. I rarely ever find appropriate gym wear to cover my body.”

- “I have to go into the men’s section because female apparel doesn’t provide the loose covering that I would like. They’re too short.”

- “I usually have to resort to big tops from the men’s section to make sure they’re long and baggy enough, but these aren’t the best for dealing with sweat.”

- “I usually buy one size larger just to get the modest factor, but when I do it tends to be uncomfortable. So modesty is very important for me.”

- “Modesty is extremely important. Almost everything made for women is tight somewhere. I actually end up wearing super baggy pants and a loose men’s shirt to cover up properly.”

- “Modesty is a part of me. So it’s very important to search for sportswear that is more appealing to my eyes as well as it should be modest.”

- “I will admit, that I often time will substitute the ‘modest’ factor for the comfort factor, and this is only because it is incredibly difficult to find gym outfits that cater to both, modesty as well as comfort.”

- “I tend to buy all my clothes two sizes bigger to be loose but with sportswear it’s really hard to do. It just looks wrong.”

- “It’s discouraging to work out without appropriate clothing.”

- “It’s so hard! I just want something comfortable to run in that’s modest at the same time. I want a loose shirt that’s long enough to cover at least half my thighs. The struggle is real.”

- “Sometimes it appears that there needs to be sacrifice between modesty and being pragmatic. Everything is obsessively tight these days, particularly gym clothes.”

- “It’s very important to me. I’d like to be able to exercise without worrying about not having enough coverage and not being modest.”

- “I have to wear multiple layers when I exercise and this leaves me uncomfortable and extremely hot/sweaty”

- “I don’t like having to choose skin tight outfits, but at the same time I don’t want anything baggy. There needs to be a middle ground.”

- “I’m tired of looking like I have no fashion sense because I want to cover myself.”

MODESTFIT SIZING    

ModestFit is a sizing system we created to give you a peace of mind while shopping for modest apparel, without having to settle for less than what you’re really looking for. We’re well aware that women come in all shapes and sizes so we expanded the main three sizing points to be just right - not baggy, while adding a fourth point to the thighs for the modest touch.

STEP 1: MEASURE    

Measure yourself using these instructions (use a flexible tape measure):

Bust - Measure around fullest area of bust, keeping tape horizontal.

Waist - Measure around narrowest part of waist, keeping tape horizontal.

Hips - With feet together, measure around fullest part of waist.

STEP 2: FIND THE BEST FIT

Use the size chart below to determine what size is best for you. Remember, our apparel is tailored so you can shop for your usual size while still getting semi-loose coverage, especially at the hips.

Numeric size refers to sizing guidelines - please take your body measurements to choose the most accurate fit possible.

WOMEN'S TOP SIZE CHART

Length refers to back length of tops
Length refers to back length of tops

INTERNATIONAL CONVERSION CHART    

PLUS SIZES

In response to popular demand, we've added an additional plus size to our sizing chart! But remember, our sizing is already a little larger than standard sizing for the modest factor - so our XXL and 3XL may look more like another brand's 2x (3XL) and 3x (4XL), respectively. Sounds great, huh? We highly suggest grabbing yours before the Kickstarter campaign ends so that your choice of color and style will be guaranteed. There are no guarantees of what will be available in stock once preorders come to an end.

Breaking The Ice.. Again.

Kickstarter is where it all started last year. As a startup aimed on shifting the modestwear industry, we launched the world’s first ever climate-adapting hijabs to help women who wear it in all different types of weather conditions.

Learn more about the project here

From there, the rest has been is history. Our amazing Kickstarter backers believed in our vision and supported more than we ever imagined. This time we’re on an even bigger mission and need your help once again to get it off the ground. Spark and Halo were designed by focusing mainly on our three core factors: modesty, functionality, and style, ultimately creating sportswear to keep you both comfortable and covered during your workout, while keeping you looking good. It’s simple, our sportswear is aesthetically engineered to perfection and systematically engineered to perform.

Why We Need Your Help

Our brand is still less than a year old but we've come a tremendously long way from where we started thanks to all your support. We initially planned on launching the Spark half-zip sweater alone with the Halo hoodie coming further down the line, but we wanted to stay true to our mission by launching them together. We understand how difficult it is to find modest sportswear in today's market so we're doing the best we can to create functional, quality apparel for you.

As a self-funded company, the only challenge we face when it comes to manufacturing is hitting the minimum order quantities. The more colors and sizes we offer, the higher the minimum requirements become and we want to be able to provide our customers with a wide variety of options to shop for. We'll only be able to put our modest sportswear into production if we hit our minimum Kickstarter goal and to show our thanks to all those who preorder we've heavily discounted both lines for Kickstarter backers only.

Unless we hit our goal we won't be able to put this awesome sportswear into production! We need your help by sharing this project with family, friends, and your fellow gym/running buddies! Hit share on any of the social media buttons below and don't forget to like/follow :)

Risks and challenges

Our last Kickstarter project was quite the learning experience, to say the least, as there were major delays in our production process that we didn’t see coming and definitely were not prepared for. Thankfully, we had the greatest backers in the world who supported us throughout the process and waited patiently for us to begin fulfilling rewards.

Optimistically, this time around will be much different for a few reasons. Unlike our previous project, which required advanced textile materials/finishing which takes a few months to dye and produce, the fabric for our sportswear is already prepared. The only factor, which will ultimately decide how quick we can fulfill rewards, is how many sweaters we need to produce and how quickly our manufacturer can produce them. Our last project unexpectedly raised 8x our initial funding goal which required more material to be produced in a longer amount of time. To put it in simpler terms, turnaround time will reflect the amount of sweaters we need to order.

Setbacks are just destined to happen sometimes. We're going to do everything in our power to make sure that isn't the case this time around. Good or bad we'll keep you updated throughout the entire process as usual. Thanks for supporting and believing in us!
