Long gone are the days of the 80’s where exercise wear consisted of leotards and g-string bodysuits with leg warmers and we did aerobics to the sounds of “lets get physical”. How the fitness scene has changed and so have the fashions – (Thank goodness)
With fitness and health becoming the must-have part of your life, we not only want to feel comfortable but also want to look stylish while being practical! We now have a tremendous choice in fitness clothing, which comes in array of colours, styles and prices.
Sportscraft have just released a stylish yet practical range of leisure/sports wears as shown below. Where fashionable prints are used in flattering panels on the jackets and pants adding flair and interest.
Of course Lorna Jane have a large range of items to suit all occasions. The prints on the tops add some humour to your workout. I particularly like the orange tank with the empire waist-line as it has a drawstring hem that stops the top from riding up when you are working out which is an added bonus! It also allows for more room around your middle being a less fitted style then most tops.
The great thing about Targets range of exercise wear is its low cost, meaning that all of us really don’t have any excuse not to put on some sportswear to “get physical” anymore! They have some great harem crop pants that are relaxed for yoga and they also cater for fuller figures too.
Then there is the Shapewear exercise-wear that gives you confidence to step out in the gym in the first place. This collection from Reebok features strategically placed shape n’ hug panels that help smooth and shape key areas such as the troublesome tummy that we often end-up with after having children!
Stylefirm- http://stylefirmclothing.com/ from LA with their competitor tights claim to flatten your tummy, lift your rear, reduce your hips and slim your thighs with their strategically placed stitching and compression mesh before you even begin your workout!
So why not give your workout a confidence boost by first flattering your figure with great colours and styles before you even get up a sweat!
