There are some things that you don’t have to spend a lot on when it comes to your active wear. T-shirts, for one, are something that you really don’t need to have as the top of the line. But there are other parts of your active wear wardrobe that it pays to spend a little bit more on. If you’re not sure where to splurge, here are three ideas that can help you out.
More Than One Sports Bra
You already know that you need a sports bra that fits well, but you definitely need more than one of them. Your sports bras need washing after every workout, and they need time to dry properly before you wear them again. Even if you only work out a couple of times a week, you need more than one good sports bra. To save yourself time and energy, pick up more than one when you find one that works for you. If you need help figuring out what makes for a good sports bra, we’ve got you covered.
Bottoms You Can Move In
There’s nothing worse than getting dressed and heading to the gym only to find out once you’re there and trying to move that you’re really uncomfortable. When you go to buy exercise pants, shorts, or capris, make sure that you can actually move in them. You don’t want them to be too baggy, but they shouldn’t be so tight that they constrict your free movement, either. If they’re not comfortable when you try them on, they won’t be comfortable when you’re trying to exercise, either.
A Jacket That Covers Your Bum
When you’re working out, it makes sense to wear what you feel comfortable in and what offers you freedom of movement. That can often mean just a sports bra and some exercise pants. But when you’re traveling to and from the gym, you probably don’t want to show off everything you’ve got. Look for a lightweight jacket that covers your hips and your bum. Since you aren’t really sweating in your jacket, it’s not going to take as much of a beating as the rest of your workout gear. But you probably will wear it far more often, so it’s a good idea to get a good one.
Now that you’re fully equipped with the right gear for the gym, it’s time to get in there and get your exercise on.
