The 21 Best Workout Pieces That Will Complement Your Curves
Whether you’re just getting around to your New Year’s resolution to start working out or you’re carrying on with your usual exercise regimen, it’s always a bonus to get new workout gear. You’ll feel more motivated to hit that class in spinning, Bikram yoga, or even wall climbing if you’re wearing a chic ensemble. Think of going to the gym as you would any other occasion: When you’re dressed your best, you feel your best.
We’ve found everything you could possibly need to complete your look, from cool tanks to modern leggings. The tanks from Lucy and Old Navy boast flattering cuts in fabrics that dry fast. And when it comes to legwear, there’s no need to settle for boring old yoga pants—think cutouts, mesh, moto touches, and vibrant colors from Addition Elle, Athleta, Fashion to Figure, H&M+, Lane Bryant, and Torrid. The leggings from Spanx use shapewear technology, resulting in a comfortable fit that tames the tummy (I wore them to my last Barre class, and believe me, they are amazing).
And we haven’t forgotten the most important components of your athletic gear: your bra and shoes! Nothing ruins your workout faster than an ill-fitting bra or a tight pair of sneakers. Panache is one of the best brands for full-coverage sports bras for larger busts, and the style shown below doesn’t disappoint. For fun prints and edgy styles that you can wear alone or under a top, check out the bras from Prabal Gurung Sport’s collab with Bandier. As for footwear, you can’t beat Nike for its assortment of trendy styles that are available in wider widths.
Finally, top off your look with a snug hoodie. Addition Elle is a favorite for styles that will take you from the gym to errands afterward. And if you’re looking for a quick one-stop shop, try a subscription site like Adore Me or Fabletics. For a monthly rate sometimes as low as $20 depending on the sign-up deal, you can get a complete outfit delivered to your door each month. Look cute for a great price? Sign us up!
