FLEO all began on a kitchen table at Eglin AFB, FL, in 2015. Babs was inspired to create FLEO after selling a yoga and Pilates studio she founded in Cambridge, England while her family was stationed overseas. Her experience working with strong women from all walks of life was exhilarating. She wanted to create something that showed off strong, muscular, athletic legs, for body confident women who own their curves.
She started the old fashioned way (with a modern twist) by self-teaching sewing and construction via sweat and internet research. She specifically focused on tight-fitting spandex shorts, most commonly referred to as “booty shorts”. Babs re-imagined the booty short to be more versatile for a wider range of body types- with multiple inseam lengths, different style shapes, and various amounts of coverage. FLEO’s fit was married with her love of bold prints, eye catching colors, and un-compromised fabric quality.
Today, FLEO’s fit and spandex expertise are applied to numerous styles in multiple clothing categories. FLEO's emphasis on strong, athletic women will always be at the forefront of what we do. The FLEO woman is exhilarating, with a sense of adventure and fearlessness that can’t be broken.
We invite you to choose FLEO and move with strength.
