Choose Womens Fitness Clothes That Fit Your Needs and Budget
Whether you want to flex your style on a bleary-eyed morning run or feel comfy and supported during arm day at the gym, womens fitness clothes are key. And there are tons of options to fit your needs and budget.
When it comes to fabric, the best womens fitness clothing gear is quick-drying and sweat-wicking to keep you cool and dry when you’re breaking a major sweat. Stretchy and soft materials like spandex, nylon and polyester are good choices, too. Good Housekeeping editor-in-chief Emma Seymour, who wears leggings for both HIIT classes and weightlifting, recommends leggings by FP Movement. They’re made with high-quality, quick-drying fabrics and come in fun pops of color and cheeky cuts. A pair she tested stayed intact even after several sessions in which she scraped barbells up against her legs—so they’re ready for anything you throw at them.
Fit and Fabulous: Empowering Women’s Fitness Clothing for an Active Lifestyle
A Lululemon fan, Stokes says the brand’s pants and tops have buttery-soft fabric that holds up after washes and is designed to move with you as you practice yoga or other mind-body workouts. Its leggings, for instance, have four-way stretch and a smooth front panel that allows you to go commando if you want to. They’re available in a range of Core colors and limited-edition trendy shades for true studio-to-street style.
The Girlfriend Collective offers a similar active and loungewear experience, but with an added focus on sustainable materials. Its shirts, tanks and long-sleeve workout tees have buttery-soft fabric with flat-lock seams to reduce chafing, plus they’re mostly or fully recycled. The brand also has high-waist pocketed yoga pants and other workout leggings with 4,000 five-star ratings on Amazon—plus sports bras with flattering support for all bust sizes.
