SWEAT AND SEE
Our CORE is made with the MICHI fabric that you know and love. Our sweat-wicking 8-way stretch fabric is designed on the body with next-to-skin softness and compressive attributes. Our CORE is made from sustainable, eco-friendly Oeko-Tex and Bluesign certified textiles, constructed to last. This means that you have activewear that can withstand whatever level of intensity workout you do. Our CORE is sweat-wicking, keeping you and your activewear dry by the time you’re home from your workout. Stay comfortable and supported in CORE styles like the Stardust Legging, Ignite Crop Top, and Illusion Legging which have a classic workout aesthetic with design elements that are fashion forward like motoribbing and mesh panels.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY YOU
CORE is hand selected by founder Michelle Watson and the MICHI team based on various reasons. One of those reasons being that CORE is built on the styles that you love the most. All of our CORE pieces were first introduced to the community through our seasonal collection launches, where we tap into inspiration by superheroines, ‘90’s European designers and nature to name a few. From there we see the magic happen. We learn from our community and receive feedback on what you need in your activewear. We initiate surveys, speak to athletes, wear test, and wear test again to bring you a collection that is an embodiment of how MICHI can fuel your confidence year round. Our community wanted a legging that could stay up without adjustments and unique detailing that can slim your legs and accentuate your best assets. Thus, the Illusion Legging was born! The Antigravity Bra was one of the first styles to put MICHI on the map with offering innovative activewear to women. MICHI founder, Michelle Watson grew tired of the uniform she was seeing across all fitness platforms. In creating directional, high-performing activewear, styles like the Bionic Bra and Molten Top have grown with us!
