When sportswear meets science

Whether you’re constantly in the gym or prefer an odd jog here and there, there is no denying that ‘I’m-a-superstar’ feeling when you’re wearing awesome gym wear. The days of wearing your old t-shirt and dirty leggings are long gone and have since been replaced with trendy and funky active wear.

Lorna Jane has become a leading women’s active wear manufacturer and seller across the globe. Looking into any of her stores around the world, you’ll see a mixture of bright and monotone colours, exciting prints and cool accessories. You’ll see inspirational quotes on the walls and beautiful décor that screams women empowerment.

What most people don’t realise is that there is a science behind Lorna Jane’s active wear designs. As a well-established global brand, she has trademarked LJ Excel™ fabrics, which has unique characteristics that embody the Lorna Jane brand.

The different LJ Excel™ fabrics are:


Microfibre technology is used in clothing to create a more supportive garment and a slicker fit. This is one of the most popular products, as it provides protection as well as a beautiful fit that hides any unflattering bits.


If high-intensity workout is your middle name, then purchasing clothes made from LJ Excel™ Compression fabric is the way to go. It offers unique stretching abilities and a high-level of support for the most challenging workout. These were designed to ease muscle stiffness and reduce fatigue.


This lightweight material was created as a comfortable garment aimed to keep you cool and dry. You can work out and even run errands in this active wear.
