As your gym gear womens workouts get more intense and your sweat levels rise, the wardrobe you choose to hit the treadmill or yoga mat becomes increasingly important. The good news is, stylish yet comfortable activewear now comes in all shapes and sizes so you can ace your fitness goals without sacrificing comfort or style.
As we’ve learned from the many fitfluencers who wear them, leggings and tights that hug your curves are a must-have, and there are endless options when it comes to colours and styles. If you’re looking to invest in your training staples, start with full-length leggings or 7/8 tights in seamless designs that ensure a distraction-free, smooth silhouette. Seamless, high-waisted crop tops are another must-have – whether you’re hitting the studio for yoga or pumping iron at home.
