You may have an idea of your body type but do not know if that means you should be shopping for slim or plus size clothing. Luckily, this post explores the most popular clothes to buy for your athletic shape to help make it effortless for you to find the perfect fit.


Leggings should be mesh-spandex fabric, so they do not restrict movement when you move about the gym or during workouts in the weight room. They come in varying styles, from sweat-wicking to more casual styles with lace on the legs and backside of the legging.


A great alternative to wearing sweats is a pair of Capri-heels. You might love this style because there are no ankle straps that can chafe you. They look great with jeans or a cute dress and have minimal coverage but still offer support.


If wearing leggings is too revealing, tights are always an option to wear under some of my workouts. They come in different lengths and fits, including the bootcut style that works well if you have big thighs.


You can wear shorts while doing your weight workout, gym, or any other place you might exercise. They are an excellent cover-up as they are lightweight and breathable. The best things to look for in a pair of shorts are the material, length, and comfort, which depend on what activities you do and your personal preferences. Ask yourself if you will be working out outside, running, or cycling indoors because that will impact your choice of shorts.


You will want a jacket that will keep you warm with a hood while doing your cardio workout outdoors or running or biking indoors. It is also great if the jacket is lightweight, so it is easy to move around.

Choosing workout clothing is comfort, proper fit, and allowing your body to move freely when exercising. If you do not feel comfortable, you will not be able to get the most out of your workout and might even avoid going places where there are other people.
