Another day, another TikTok trend sweeps the internet by storm—while this trend has been hanging around for quite some time, there seems to be no indication of it dying down anytime soon. With the pursuit of wellness and a supposed ‘ideal’ lifestyle in the forms of ‘That Girl’ and endless other fitspo trends, the Pilates Princess seems to take on a more indulgent, feminine twist compared to the usual fit girl fads. This fitness phenomenon, with its roots in ballet and yoga, is not just a workout; it’s a lifestyle that is redefining what it means to be a modern-day princess.
Imagine a workout that not only sculpts your body but also uplifts your spirit—that’s precisely the magic of pilates. From celebrities to influencers, the Pilates Princess trend has captivated the hearts of women worldwide with its promise of a balanced, strong, and poised physique. But it’s not just about the results; it’s about the journey.
To put it simply; a pilates princess is someone who not only practices pilates for fitness, but also embodies an aesthetic unique to the trend—mainly soft pastels and hyper-feminine styles of activewear. Do quick search on TikTok and you’ll find that the trend has garnered over 12 million views, and unsurprisingly, the fad has attracted the attention of brands and designers, with exclusive collections inspired by the movement. Delicate pastel activewear, embellished with intricate details, elevates workout attire to couture-worthy ensembles, ensuring that every Pilates session feels like a royal affair.
That said, the Pilates Princess is not just defined by her outfits—it’s a lifestyle. It’s reading books and sipping green juice followed by journaling and meditation. It’s tapping into your highest self and striving for ultimate wellness, both physically and mentally as the ultimate form of self care. The Pilates Princess lifestyle may seem a little intimidating for the average woman, especially in Singapore where fast-paced living is the norm for most. But that’s not to say embodying the Pilates Princess in your everyday is completely unattainable (because let’s face it, nobody has the time), the trend is all about an attitude to life, and a practice of healthy routines. The aesthetic and pretty outfits may be a big part of the trend, but if anything, the pink leotards and boleros are completely optional. The love for life and positive approach to health and self-improvement? That’s the true essence of a Pilates Princess.
