Appearing in public in ratty workout clothes is the worst part of going to a gym or a yoga class. Fortunately, there's a lot of great active wear out there that's stylish as well as comfortable. Here are some tips to help you pick the right active wear to help you get the most out of whatever physical activities you choose. Share with your friends on social media so that everyone can look great at the gym.
Make Sure It's Comfortable
Choose comfortable clothing that lets you move freely. Jogging, yoga, and other activities can become unpleasant quickly when wearing stiffer fabrics like denim. Instead, pick fabrics that are breathable, wick away moisture, and stretch. Clothing that's too loose could fall over your head during yoga poses and other activities, so active wear that's made of a fabric that moves with you, like Lycra, best. Nylon and Lycra are both fast drying as well. Cotton is also comfortable, but it's not as durable.
Remember to check the weather before you work out outdoors. People often start a morning run when it's still chilly out, and then the weather is warmer when they finish. You can stay comfortable even when the temperature changes by wearing a Sadhana sweater over a fashionable microtop. They look so great that they can double as a bikini top. You can also layer a pair of Sadhana's fashionable yoga pants over workout shorts to keep you warm and protect you from sunburn. Sadhana is the American division of Tono a Tono or TaT, the popular Columbian women's sportswear brand.
Make Sure It Fits
The right pair of leggings can make you look great, but yoga pants that don't fit are very unflattering. Pay attention to size charts, and do a few jumping jacks when you try on any active wear for the first time. Clothing that feels comfortable when you're standing still often feels different when you're moving. You can usually pick your regular pants size. However, if your underwear or panty line shows, it usually means that your leggings are too small.
Try Different Styles
Put regular shorts over your leggings for a different look. Leggings with prints help hide sweat, and you can choose from a wide variety of colors and patterns to match with any outfit. Darker colors will help you look slimmer, and they look great on a date, as well as at the gym.. Look well put together with a matching pair of shorts and sports bra. Wear shorts with pockets so you can leave your purse at home.
