Choosing workout clothes is no piece of cake. You have to be aware of so many technicalities while not falling out of trend.
There are so many to keep track of, the fit, the style, whether you wear the right clothes technically or you are too much into fashion?
Is your outfit cool enough or do you make it too boring for the day?
It’s not an easy task to solve all these questions, to find the right fit, with the right colour, and right fabric that supports you in exactly the way you want it to.
Sounds too much at once, doesn’t it? Here we are to ease it out for you. We’re gonna talk about some basic things that you note and you are all set with your workout wardrobe.
- Want The Perfect Fit Get The Perfect Fit
When I say perfect fit, I mean not too loose, not too tight. Workout clothes are meant to support your muscles while setting you free enough to move flexibly. You need to look out for fabrics that are stretchy, comfortable, and have sweat-wicking qualities. Now keeping a balance between these three properties is an important thing. You can’t lose one for another.
If you go for comfort, do not fall for fabrics like cotton, they may be really comfortable for daily use but can prove to be a disaster in the gym. It does not soak sweat and end up making you feel wet grease, and uncomfortable mid-workout. Look for fabrics like spandex, lycra, polymer, or a mixture of these. They provide you with great flexibility, sweat-wicking properties, and comfort. Also since they are the most popular fabrics to be used, they are available in most patterns, colors, and designs.
- Protection And Support Must Be Checked
Workout clothes’ basic application is to provide you support and protection while working out. Without these features, they are just casual clothes and have no specific utility in your wardrobe. Check if you buy a piece that is effective enough for you. Know your workout type and body needs before you hit the shop. There are particular sports bras for particular sizes and body needs. You can choose compressed, encapsulated, or the fusion of these two, try all of them, know your size and find the perfect one for you. If you are heading for a particularly intense workout session, look for specialized wear.
There are special wears for every training, if you’re heading for weight lifting you need supported wear that targets that particular area or muscle for better support and protection. If you’re gonna head for a brisk walk, you can go with semi-fit tank tops and sweats, but high-intensity weight lifting will need yoga pants or track pants. There’s always a place for a fit, find the right one for yours.
- Not Too Less, Not Too Much!
Finding the perfect style is totally up to your preferences, what must be worth noting is that you don’t lose the GYM vibe. Since it’s always about making a mark, be classy with your choice, and since the gym is a place to have a decent fashion outlook, you have to be subtle while picking the pairs. You can go for cord sets, they are quite a trend these days. Buying cord sets benefits in a sustainable way as well, they provide you with top and bottom wear to style in many different ways.
Avoid wearing too bright or neon colors, you may wear a bright tone and settle it with a dull one. But try avoiding shocking or eye-catching clothes. Similarly, with patterns, try to be quiet and decent with prints.
Talking about style, mind your body type, and comfort, then pick the pattern. Do not let trends or norms fool you into anything. There will be so many common picks or most popular patterns, but they might make you uncomfortable while working out, affecting your routines. Go with what is the safest and comfiest, you can be your own trendsetter when you wear the confidence.
You may feel the need to cope up with trends, you find the better pattern in another fabric or find the plus or less size more attractive look-wise. However, fitness clothing and activewear are bound to be technical and fulfill your physical needs, keep a check on your recovery and the results of your time, energy, and money invested. Since there are wider aspects of wearing clothes in the gym, note that these three are the main pillars that you need to rely on for a trendy yet comfortable and fit workout outfit. These three tips can save you from all the mess and confusion. Mind the fit, the fabric, and the design, what do you need more to look for?
