Nuu-Muu (review & giveaway)

Tue, Jan 18, 2011

Giveaways, Reviews

(The front of my beloved Nuu-Muu. I love it. Im not sure why Im not smiling.  And…)

(the back-view.)

First lets take a moment and address the obvious given the photographic evidence above: indeed. living in Texas ROCKS.  I miss my hometown peeps—but wouldnt trade the winters here for anything.




I get pitched on a daily basis to review products.

By way of full greedy dizclosure (alert! alert! FTC this is for you!) I reached out to Nuu-Muu and begged to do a review.

Id found them through a Google search for exercise dresses (I love me some exercise dresses) and was filled with an immediate & unrelenting longing.

Im sure I should be embarrassed that I contacted & pestered till they relented (and generously offered one up for you readers too) but Im not.

I *told* you the word-play here was more MISFIT than MISS. FIT—but I digress.

What did I freakin’ love about my Nuu-Muu:

  • It was as fab as advertised. We all know this is not always the case. It was as lovely in person/in hand as it was depicted in their website.  This is a biggie for me as Im finding so many items these days which look great and well-made on my computer screen and not so much in person.
  • It transitioned from gym/playground to dinner out seamlessly. By now we all know this is a *huge* necessity for me.  I love how my Nuu-Muu didnt look too ‘dress-like’ for the gym or too gym-like for going out afterward.  The seamless is a pun.  Ive found that by donning SEAMLESS capris underneath I mitigate the workout look of the dress for my excursions afterward.  And YES. I don the platform flipflips.  Always.
  • GREEN GREEN GREEN The Tornado & I have been chatting a bunch about recycling. I noticed and loved that my Nuu-Muu came in recycled and recyclable packing (& tags!).  Every little greenbit helps.
  • They give back. From working with Girls on the Run to donating proceeds to the Komen foundation.  Im 100% more likely to shop with charity-minded companies.  100%

What did I not-so-much love about my Nuu-Muu?

  • There were no EXACT matching mom & daughter Nuu-Muus (dizclaimer: Ive always been bad at that Memory card game. Theres a chance these do exist on site and I just, uh, failed to match them?) I know the Tornado will be over her interest in matching me in about 10 seconds.  I love to seize the matchymatch while I can.
  • They need some of us more people on their athlete’s page. ‘Nuff said.

(Im cognizant Im reaching here, People, but I told you already I asked fer this treat. I was already in Nuu-Muu love.)

Before we segue into the “you too mightcould win” portion of the post please to enjoy a 360 view of the Nuu-Muu:

(enjoying via a reader? Theres a 20 second The-Tornado’s-first-experience-as-cameraPreschooler below)

So there you have it.

Nuu-Muu love.

The Tornado’s first cameragirl experience (& inexplicable thumbs-up to self at the end).

Now you.

What would you do in yer Nuu-Muu if you were to win one?

    I love you-you.
    I would run in my Nuu-Muu (yes I saw your FB posting:))

  2. Natalia says:

    Love the video with T’s thumb and cute little “Thank you” at the end!! :) And the dress looks great on you and super comfy too!!

  3. Bea says:

    Best video ever, Miz.

    The Tornado has found her career!!!

    I can’t win (Canada), but adore that workout dress on you.

    Do they ship here?

  4. Colleen says:

    Wow this looks comfy and yes perfect for a summer time workout. Now I’m jealous watching this and seeing sunshine and warmth LOL
    I would totally rock this once winter leaves us here in Mass haha

  5. michelle@mythunderthighs says:

    I love the thumbs up…so dang cute

  6. Helen says:

    Does the dress thing come with your workout program? LOL.

    I don’t think I would have the confidence right now to exercise in a dress so I think I would wear it to and from my yoga class.

  7. Renee says:

    I’m with Helen :)
    I will buy my own dress just give me your secrets.
    I’m a new reader and your before and after is amazing.

  8. Reen says:

    Wow, so cute. I would wear it all day. I could wear it to the gym or wear it out on a jog or wear it to the grocery store or in the garden, and definitely looks comfy enough to wear when I pull an all-day-at the computer work day!

  9. Joob says:

    That is adorable! Believe it or not I have NEVER heard of an “exercise dress”!!!

    This has me so excited you have no idea. If I had a nuu-muu I would likely run around in it all day mooing. It cannot be helped with a name like nuu-muu, it is too fantastic.

  10. Nita says:

    Your first link to nuu-muu is missing the “l” in html. So dear readers, add the “l” to find your own nuu-muu love!

  11. jen (@jeninRL) says:

    I can’t believe I am going to write this but OMG, I LOVE that dress!!

    of course the pink thumbnail and cute little voice saying thank you may have hypnotized me!!


  12. kia says:

    I must say I am a running skirt fan but have not even tried on a running dress yet. I am curious though. Well at least now.

  13. Valerie says:

    I gotta say I love the Nuu-Muu - but I even more love the hot pink fingernails on your camera-Tornado. :-)

  14. Aubry says:

    A mother & daughter would be CUTE!
    I would wear this running when I run in the dark :) and when I am fitter I would wear it in the light.

    I want those arms, Mizzy.

    • enid says:

      we do have some matching girls dresses to go with some of the women’s offerings….and….coming around the end of February there will be two brand new styles available for both woman and girls!

  15. Erica says:

    This totally does not look like a workout dress! Glad you’re loving it. The style makes it totally transferable from the weight room to a restaurant. LOVE that. Plus it looks like it has a little more room than most traditional workout dresses….which this preggers needs ;)

  16. JennferLeah says:

    SOOO cute. Tornado has a future in film-fer sure!!

    What would I do in my NUU-MUU??
    I would get up, shower and promptly slip it over my head-
    voila! Im dressed. **Let’s pretend it is SUMMER here in Maine** Underneath-my shorty’s.
    First order of business?
    Out for a run with Lola and the Jogger. An early and easy 5 miles together (don’t wanna get TOO sweatty!) singing and counting birds, trees, finding different colors (yes, this is what we do on nice weather jogger runs together). Stop at the neighborhood farm stand to supplement the produce we don’t grow in our own garden.
    Then off to the library for out 10am Toddler Time reading/story hour which we made on time since I did not have to go home and change out of my “running gear”.
    From the Library we stop at New Morning Naturals, grab some yummy lunches and head on over to see my Mom at work and bring her lunch! SHe comments how it’s nice to see me in something other than yoga pants or running shorts for once. I thank her with a grin :P
    Now we head to the beach to play in the sand and Im still looking cute in my NUU-MUU!! And it is no problem if we get it a little wet since it moisure wicking and quick to dry!
    3pm rolls around and it’s naptime for Lola-I do some Kettlebells while she naps and then hubbs gets home. Time to tend the garden and get dinner together.
    He comments how cute I look in my “dress”. I smile because I know I do too! :) And I smile because it was all so easy!!
    Best of all, he could not complain about all the money I spent on more running/workout gear since I won it from MIZFIT so HE smiles too!!

    Thanks for a fun contest!

  17. Patrick says:

    WHAT - there were no EXACT matching mom & daughter Nuu-Muus? Well if I win this give away and there is not a matching one for my 17 year old son, well, I am not really sure I want it to be honest. SO I guess I am just stopping by to say HI and have a GREAT day!

  18. Kelley Burrus says:

    Quite sporty. Love.

  19. Lynn says:

    I’d yoga!!

  20. Lynn says:

    Links won’t work ;(

  21. Miz says:

    Hmmmm. Will check links when at computer. I checked before and thought they all worked ok!


  22. Bonnie says:

    I can’t win & still needed to say how cute you are in that exercise dress!

    Who knew exercise dresses even existed.

    Do they sell the capris too?

  23. Paige@Two Runners And A Brown Dog says:

    OOH! If I had a Nuu-Muu, I would wear it after races. That way, I would feel very comfortable, and look stylish as well! Usually after races, I just throw on some shorts and a t-shirt, so the Nuu-Muu would be a big improvement for me!

  24. Kelly Happy Texan says:

    Tornado’s making movies now. They grow up so fast. Love the pink nailpolish as well.

    I’d run in my Nuu-Muu. I’d lift weights like a star. I’d go to the grocery store. But most importantly, I’d be able to cover my belly pooch when wearing tights! :D

  25. Helen DoingA180 says:

    I’m not sure I’d even exercise in mine. It looks PERFECT for wicking away the humidity induced sweat while sitting on my patio with some jazz and a beverage, if summer ever freaking gets here!

  26. carolinebee says:

    Exercise dresssss?? Whaaa, awesome!! You are rockin’ it…not that I would expect anything less :D

  27. Heather B says:

    Oh man, these are fantastic! I’m one of those people that sort of likes working out, but really get into it more if I like my clothes. (Hence the special gym-only clothes. If I want to wear the cuteness, I have to go to the gym!) This would make getting off my tush and to the gym so much fun. And I wouldn’t feel like such a sweaty mess when I have to run errands afterwards.

  28. Ella says:

    The links worked for me!
    I think I would wear mine to the studio to cover my booty before yoga class :)

  29. Katie says:

    Workout dress?!? You mean I can work out and still look like a girl?!?

    I’d lift really heavy weights and grunt while doing it. And then I’d do some twirls and pirouettes, because, well when you have a dress on.

    Seriously, this is the coolest ever!

  30. KCLAnderson (Karen) says:

    <3 the video, the thumb, the thank you :-) And I'm with Helen (Doing a 180). Everything she said!

  31. Elise says:

    I would use my Nuu-muu at the beach. Some hot guy would ask me out and I’d throw some leggings on and be ready!

  32. deb roby says:

    How does it fasten? Or is it over the head?

    I searched far and wide for muu-muu like clothing post-surgery and would still love to find shoulder-friendly on and off clothing.

    I’d probably live in that during the spring, summer and fall.

  33. Shelley B says:

    I really like that dress! Really, really like it. The breezy aspect would make it so wonderful to run in - and then run around town in…LOVE IT!

    P.S. The polished thumbs up (twice!) cracked me up - love her style, love her confidence! :)

  34. Dynamics says:

    Your daughter is soooo cute. And a thank you at the end to boot. Love the polish.

  35. Karen says:

    I’d love to wear it when I go back to the spa:)

  36. melissa @ the delicate place says:

    i would play in the park doing twirls in my new nuu-muu ;)

  37. stephchows says:

    I’d totally wear this everywhere, home, the store, the gym, i love running skorts so I bet this with tights would be awesome too!

  38. Lia says:

    Nice dress! I’d love a workout dress! Also, random: Mizfit.com is for sale, the domain. I accidentally typed that in and saw that, donno if you care, but thought I’d relay the info I stumbled upon. Love your blog!!!


  39. merrymishaps says:

    So cute. I’d like to run a marathon in one :)

  40. Tanya says:

    I would wear that dress everywhere!

  41. charlotte says:

    You are SO ADORABLE. I love that dress. I would work out exclusively in dresses/skirts if it was practical (heck I already wear them 3 days out of 6! Suuuppper cute.

  42. Cathy says:

    I would wear this when I run and I would probably wear it when I am out running errands, it is so cute!

  43. Jody - Fit at 53 says:

    OMG, that Tornado is the cutest thing!!!!

    Well, I did not read other comments but the links did not go anywhere so I will Google it.

    As for the dress, Carla, my feet are so bad that I can’t wear any shoes beyond WIDE sneakers/fitness shoes these days… no pretty heals & flats cause the wide feet & bunions don’t fit in them so I might wear it at home too around the house just so the hubby sees me in a dress every so often! :-)

  44. Colleen says:

    I would like to jog and or walk in my Nuu-Muu if I won one.

  45. Kerri O says:

    Awwww, such a sweet little cameragirl. My 5 year old loves the thumbs up lately too. I think we could all use a little more of that attitude!
    I have not heard of these. I am off to peruse their site.

  46. Tena says:

    I’d ride my bike!

    The Tornado is a natural! Love that shade of pink on her. You two are adorable.

  47. JourneyBeyondSurvival says:

    I *love* the Tornado’s thumb’s up! She is adorable!

    I would use my NuMuu to have something sexy to sleep/play/workout in. It would be much much sexier than…what I have now.

    I do not wish to disclose the ugliness that I currently own.

    Do the world a service and GIVE IT TO ME!!!

  48. Liz says:

    I could wear it to lunch
    I could wear it in a crunch.

    I should wear it to work out
    I should wear it on a girls night out.

    I would wear it here, there, and everywhere
    Without it I would be bare!

    (By the way…love your arms! I know there is some muscle somewhere under all the layers of love on my arms…I’m going to find it and show it off in my new Nuu-Muu!)

  49. madeleine says:

    Can you give us some size guidelines? E.g. what size were you wearing & did that feel comfortable for you or would you go up or down a size? Thanks

    • MizFit says:

      Im in an XS. A small would have worked too but just would have been roomier around the bottom/A-LINE area

  50. Joy says:

    Okay I have to start with go tornado!! Heck she did better than me :-) !
    Second that would just go everywhere with me - my current gym to night out solution is throw a skirt on over my workout capris and rock it like it’s a style and hope that people just think I am cutting edge!

  51. Kimberly aka Spiritjewelz says:

    I love the Nuu Muu, hadnt seen them before. So I checked out the site, which, btw, the last link didnt work from my phone.

    A couple years back, I met the man I adore. We looked at having a ‘big’ wedding but….. I want a beachside informal, dogs and flipflops sunshine affair. There is one red and white one which would be perfect for a beachside, sand in your toes affair.

    My man is a big USATF runner, I fell down a flight of stairs and am gently starting to retrain. So…..that wedding dress will not be relegated to a storage box, never to see light of day again.

    I dont post a lot, been busy remodeling our new ‘old’ house, but my hearts a Mizfitter thru and thru… Keep sharing!

  52. Geosomin says:

    I think I’m one of the few people out there who aren’t a fan of the Nuu Muu. Just doesn’t do it for me.
    It looks really cute on you. Makes me look like a hobbit. :)

    • MizFit says:

      and I LOVE YOU for your honestly…although you know I wanna beg to differ :) a hobbit?! why do I think not… That said, I do love me some hobbits.

  53. Heather says:

    I would wear it for my all-ladies track training on Tuesdays — ’cause the winters in Phoenix are as lovely as the winters in Texas :)

  54. sian says:

    You don’t need to enter me in this giveaway because I already won a giveaway on your site….yipee to for me. But I have not rec’d it yet. BOO! Its been about 6 weeks since I emailed you my address. Any info would be fantastic!

  55. Kristina @ spabettie says:

    I will wear my Nuu Muu to cook and bake in. Also to run errands and grocery shop in. to yoga and my chiropractor appointment. on my morning runs - treadmill now, outdoors in the spring! with tights under to weight lift at the gym! I’ll wear it to blogger conferences with a cardigan, and again with tights or yoga pants for a comfortable airplane ride!


  56. Jenn (Gh) says:

    An exercise dress!?!?! Adorable!!! Love. If I won it, I’d strut. Kidding. I’d wear it for walks and when I go train clients.

  57. Paula says:

    This is cute! I would probably wear this for just ’bout everything !! It looks so comfortable. I have never heard of a workout dress! Great idea.

  58. tricia says:

    Hmmm…could wear to Dash’s dance class and hit up the gym afterwards..all while looking cute

  59. elaine! says:

    If I had a Nuu-Mu, I’d wear it for a run to the park, then do pushups and reverse chinups on the monkey bars. Then I’d do fartleks barefoot through the grass and skip home! :D

  60. teak says:

    Cute!! I checked out the website and love all of the different layering combinations. If I won I would wear my Nuu-Muu on my morning walk and then to school to volunteer in my kids’ classrooms!

  61. Jenna Z says:

    One word-Zumba!!! I’d Zumba the heck out of that Nuu-Muu!!
