Dressing is extremely important. Just like how we put thought into our dressing for various events, it is important to pay attention to the type of clothes we wear while engaging in any form of exercise.

The clothing that you pick has an impact on your performance while working out or engaging in a sport and may act as a motivating factor.

Here are a few things you have to consider while choosing sportswear that maximise your workout-

1) Look

Studies show that the clothes you wear have a direct impact on your performance. If you know you look great, you’re more likely to feel great. This increases your confidence and performance.

2) Comfort

Workouts involve a considerable amount of sweating, jumping, running etc. Therefore, it is essential that you pick clothing that is comfortable and allows you to move freely.

It must allow the air to reach your skin to dry your sweat. Make sure that the sports clothes chosen not only to match your body but the sport chosen as well.

3) Weather

It is extremely important to regulate body temperature while doing physical activity to avoid dehydration, muscle cramps, heat strokes etc.

During summer, light colours are preferred by most people as it keeps the body cooler. Darker colours are prefered in winter because it traps heat.

People usually wear layers of clothing and they remove these layers as they warm up. Caps and hats used especially in sunny places are to keep the sun out of their eyes.

4) Material

Understanding which material suits your body is very important. Clothing chosen should not be heavy, it should be light and you should not feel it only you.

Some fabrics pull away the sweat from your skin and others absorb it. Picking clothes with breathable fabrics allow your skin to breathe and keep your body cool.

Cotton clothing absorbs sweat, however, it does not allow quick evaporation of sweat which leaves it feeling heavy on you. Rubber or plastic based clothing do not let your skin breathe which results in high body temperature during the workout or sport.

Compression fabrics have tight-fitting fabrics which cover the skin and help blood flow.

5) Innerwear

Most women don’t take choosing innerwear seriously. However, this is a very important part of your outfit.

Choosing a sports bra that fits you is a priority. Wearing the wrong size may not only lead to discomfort but may also result in soft tissue damage.

Next time you pick out your innerwear make sure you’re picking the correct size so you can go about without any discomfort.
