Let’s get this out of the way and answer everyone’s first question: It’s pronounced ban-DEER. In 2014, Jennifer Bandier asked herself, “Why can’t I find the best selection of fashionable activewear all in one place?”. To find her answer, she did what any woman would do if she wants something done right—she did it herself. Sure, curating the market’s best and most fashionable activewear into one premium collection of 50-plus brands is a big job, but someone has to do it.
From bootcamp to brunch plans, your active lifestyle is as dynamic as you are—and it’s about time your clothes kept up. That’s where we come in. We’ve been devoted to redefining the way women shop activewear since day one—and we do it all with every #BANDIERgirl in mind.
HOW, you ask?
We Scour The Market:
We don’t mess around when it comes to bringing you the best. Even if a brand is hiding under a rock in Australia, it’s our job to find it—Jenn’s orders. And once we do, we work closely with our brands to develop BANDIER- exclusive styles that we know will fit into every aspect of your active lifestyle.
We Wear Test Everything:
Sure, a shiny new pair of leggings can talk the talk, but that doesn’t mean they’re not flimsy—or worse, see-through. That’s why we wear test everything. Yep, everything. Nothing gets the BANDIER stamp of until we’ve actually walked a mile in your shoes (or joggers or sports bras).
We Move One Beat Ahead:
Launching the first premium multi-brand activewear retailer in 2014 was just the beginning. In 2016, we founded Studio B—the first boutique fitness studio of its kind. In 2017, we launched four private brands—some of the first in the activewear market to offer extended sizing up to XXL.
