I’ve tried a ton of workout clothes from the expensive brands to the cheap ones. Here are my favorites:
Sports bra: I talked about the best sports bra for every size here, but my personal favorite is Panache (no underwire). They’re super comfortable and do a great job of keeping the girls in no matter how intense your workout is.
That being said, I’ve also tried several yoga pants. I’ve tried being cheap and buying $10 yoga pants, but they all ripped in the thigh area. Victoria Secret yoga pants have been the only ones that have lasted me a really long time. They’re also nice and thick so they feel better and are never see through.
Shorts: I mostly wear long pants, but when I run I tend to wear shorts because it just gets so hot. I like my shorts snug because I don’t like the feeling of my clothes slapping me while I’m working out. I also don’t like anything that rides up. These are my favorite shorts.
Tops: I don’t do built in bras because I have bigger breasts and those just don’t do the job. I also don’t do sleeves because I sweat and don’t like the feeling of a wet underarm area. I also like looser tops so that I don’t feel a pools of sweat against my skin. My favorite tops are from Invest in Your Body.
Shoes: I just have to say that a good pair of shoes are essential! It will save you a lot of pain and will make your workouts easier. These are my favorites:
– Training: Nike Metcon 2
– Running: Asics Gel Nimbus 17
Socks: I know this is an odd thing to talk about, but a bad pair of socks will slip off of your feet and let your shoes run against your bare skin. Ouch. These are my favorite.
Panties: Another odd thing to share, but really, no one wants their panties crawling up while they’re trying to workout. These are awesome for exercising.
