Interesting story behind Peachylean

You know I love an Irish fashion business, so I was delighted to recently discover Peachylean, an Irish activewear brand founded by Sharon Keegan.

Sharon’s own story is very interesting. After losing five stone and bouncing back from post-natal depression with her two boys Liam and Bob, Sharon was compelled to help other women going through similar experiences and support them to move for their mind and gain confidence and self-esteem, ultimately empowering them and encouraging them to love themselves and as such Peachylean was born.

A company with a very human story, Peachylean has a core vision of support for everybody. Their values of energy, joy and realness are embedded in everything they do.

After designing and experimenting with multiple products, Sharon realised that her passion was in physical and mental wellbeing.

Having found huge solace in exercise throughout her most arduous times, Sharon decided to create a product that she couldn’t find on the market - supportive, comfortable, excellent quality leggings that would not only support a woman’s shape but would also help give them the confidence and self-esteem to move for their mind.

Sharon’s mission was simple: to help women to silence their inner critic, to stop holding themselves back and discover their true potential in life, and to ultimately love themselves.

Since establishing in 2018, Peachylean has scaled rapidly, making significant inroads into the Irish market.

The company now boasts an exceptional all-female design and management team. Their innovative, award winning Irish support wear now sells worldwide and continues to gain momentum.

Given Peachylean’s growth to date, CEO and Chief Confidence Creator Sharon Keegan has demonstrated how to turn a kitchen table idea into a profitable, ground-breaking business which is pretty amazing.

Now more than ever we demand so much from our activewear taking us from the gym, to school pick ups and everything in between.

You want pieces that work hard in the gym supporting your body and making sure all you need to focus on is that workout and not being uncomfortable in your gear and we also want a look that we can hang around in and still look stylish.

I’m constantly on the lookout for the perfect pair of leggings and the high waist, full length ones with pockets do not disappoint.

These full-length leggings are high waisted for extra comfort and made with high compression to ensure you feel snug from waist down to hem. Constructed in bum-sculpting fabric, the high spandex content helps to sculpt and enhance the body whilst providing support. Double lined at the bum and tummy to ensure they are squat proof and engineered to support.

These leggings are suitable for all types of workouts and activities and can even be worn as fun and comfortable casual wear. Team your leggings with a cute trench coat or oversized jumper for a chic street style look.

There’s also something for everyone in this collection, from of course my favourite leopard print pieces that I would definitely wear styled with a sweatshirt or oversized shirt and trainers outside of the gym to fun and vibrant purple and turquoise styles.

If you prefer something a little more classic, then there’s also a fantastic collection of simple black pieces. With Peachylean around, we really have no excuse for wearing boring leisure wear anymore.
