When it’s time to exercise, you want to wear comfortable, fashionable clothes that won’t leave you feeling self-conscious while you get in better shape. Before you buy, consider your exercise routine — will you be doing yoga, running, working out with weights, Pilates or aerobics? Your exercise choices will determine what you’ll need to buy. In addition, you’ll want to purchase a new, well-coordinated sweat suit or running suit that flatters your figure so that you’ll feel good when you enter and leave the gym.
To flatter your figure, wear Lycra gym pants with a flared, boot-cut leg to balance your tummy and hip area, make you look slimmer and provide a stylish update to traditional sweat pants then layer your bottoms with a leotard, sleeveless crop top, t-shirt or sweatshirt.
