The first step in getting ready to exercise is putting on your workout clothes. This is an essential step that could impact your entire workout. You wouldn’t wear a swimsuit on the treadmill or running pants at the pool, would you?
Choosing the right activewear for your workout is crucial for having a good one. Wearing the right workout clothes for the activity you’re doing can even enhance your performance and result in better blood circulation, reduced fatigue, and a better workout!
Performance Enhancing Athletic Wear
You know that feeling when you wear a thick cotton t-shirt to a HIIT workout? You’re drenched in sweat, and your shirt just feels like it’s getting heavier and heavier.
Choosing lightweight, moisture-wicking materials and specific athletic wear for your workout clothes eliminates that feeling and aids in athletic recovery. You can push yourself harder and faster when you’re not being held back by your clothes.
There are many benefits to wearing compression workout gear. It gives your muscles support and helps improve blood circulation, which often results in increased performance, reduced muscle fatigue, and a faster recovery process.
Some booty shorts women wear don’t offer enough support, so if you’re going for a booty building workout, ditch the loose-fitting athletic shorts with minimum compression and opt for compression shorts that will actually enhance your workout.
Certain fabrics can make all the difference in your level of comfort, breathability, and warmth during a workout. That’s why we make our Shorties, Leggings, and Bras in various fabrics. Our Body Butter Fabric, Flex Fabric, and Moxie Fabric (just to name a few) vary in compression, stretch, and feel, which allows you to better suit your activewear to your workout.
Body Butter Fabric
Our Body Butter Fabric is a blend of 82.5% polyester and 17.5% spandex, creating the balance between minimum compression and lots of stretch (without being see-through!).
The 85% polyester and 15% spandex blend of our Flex Fabric feels silky smooth to the touch but breathes on the body like cotton. Perfect for a tough workout, these shorts will wick away moisture to keep you cool and comfortable. Similar to our Body Butter Fabric, you get plenty of stretch with minimum compression.
Looking for maximum compression? Our 73% polyester and 27% spandex Moxie Fabric offers the most compression of all our fabrics, but don’t worry, they’re still perfectly stretchy and extra comfy.
WodBottom Tip: Because of the compression in our Moxie Fabric, we recommend sizing up if you’re in between sizes in our leggings.
Having athletic wear that you feel comfortable in is important. You want your workout clothes to make you feel good and look good.
We design colorful, fun, and exciting workout clothes so you can show off your personality and feel your absolute best in them.
Plus, when you’re not thinking about what you’re wearing, you can better focus on your workout and powering through that last rep.
