Altra Running recently announced its sponsorship of two pregnant runners, Alysia Montaño and Tina Muir. Montaño is a U.S. national champion and an Olympian in the 800 meters, and Muir is a 2:36 British marathoner and host of the podcast Running for Real. In an industry that has historically penalized women for having children, this new move by Altra is setting a new standard.
Storage previously wasn’t sewn into women's clothing; instead, women would wear pockets on a belt around their waist, usually beneath their skirts. They would access these pockets through slits in the outer layer of their dres. These pockets were huge; they were often large enough to carry snacks like oranges and apples. They were also beautiful and personalized with embroidery and embellishments.
