I know workouts should be about the exercise itself and how you feel during and after a sweat session. It makes sense because if you're not doing a workout that you enjoy and that's effective for you, then it's not a very fun or productive experience. But can we just talk about something that's not the most important thing in a workout but still makes a difference? I'm talking about activewear here.
Yes, sometimes what I'm wearing can really make my workout more fun. To me, there's nothing like wearing a cute activewear set to a class or the gym and feeling yourself. Am I the only one who feels this way?
When I'm looking for activewear pieces, I want them to be functional, of course. Who wants to keep pulling up their leggings during a class or feeling like their boobs aren't supported at all while doing a HIIT set or cardio? No one. But I also gravitate toward pieces that have a little bit of stylish flair. I want to look good and feel good.
While I have a lot of basic leggings and sports bras, one of my favorite things to do is add some pattern or prints into my workout gear. I think it makes my exercise session a little less serious and a little more fun. Currently, I'm all about a patterned sports bra and solid leggings. It's not too out-there or flashy, but it's still a little bit more exciting than your regular black-on-black set. Give it a whirl sometime if you haven't already. It's fun!
And if you need some help with finding the best pattern sports bras, I've compiled a list of all the ones I'm currently eyeing at the moment. Take a look below.
This racerback sports bra is specially designed for your yoga practice. And it's so lightweight that you'll probably feel like you're wearing nothing during your workout so you're able to move freely.
