If you are an active adventure traveler, you need travel clothes to match your travel style. On a recent trip to Maui, Hawaii I found myself going from breakfast to yoga class, to the spa and then to the swimming pool. While I love wearing the soft, white, fluffy robes that the luxury resorts provide, sometimes I feel a bit under-dressed going outside of my room – and my comfort zone, in a robe. It’s always a little awkward riding in a hotel elevator with my robe and flip flops, no matter how cute the shoes!
Nuu-Muu travel dress
When the folks at Nuu-Muu asked me to review their exercise dress I had the perfect opportunity during a visit to Lumeria Maui in Makawao, and Travaasa Hana, both luxury resorts on the Hawaiian Island of Maui. I confess that I was concerned how the dress would look on my curvy body, as opposed to the fit models shown on the website. Fortunately, the designer markets the Nuu-Muu as fitting “real women’s bodies.”
The Nuu-Muu is made of a soft and breathable, moisture wicking Polyester/Lycra blend and comes in many colors and sizes. I chose the basic black X-dress; simple and flattering. For petite young things, the dress may be worn alone or with leggings. I wore my Nuu-Muu exercise dress with yoga shorts and was very comfortable from standing poses to yoga mat work. The sleeveless dress has a pocket in the back of the dress for slipping in a hotel key or holding money. I didn’t use the pocket, as I was lying on my back for some of the yoga class.

I felt comfortable wearing the Nuu-Muu at the restaurant for meals, as well as using the dress as a bathing suit coverup. As the Nuu Muu looks and feels like a dress, it is ideal for resort restaurants with a dress code that do not allow bathing suit cover ups.
From bike riding to tennis playing or exercising, the Nuu-Muu allows for a wide range of motion, combining fashion and function. The Nuu-Muu X-Dress retails for $70. Check website for additional products.
