This is a post I’ve been dying to make! I am a gym clothing snob, I’m very open about it. I have an addiction and no…I won’t stop. I could make an entire blog about sports bras, I love them so much. In fact, I imagine in the future there probably will be at least an entire post about sports bras. For now, I’ve broken it down to my favourite outfits for the types of workouts that I do the most often. I’m very loyal to certain brands for certain items. I own probably fifteen pairs of the same spandex shorts from under armour and the girls at my local lululemon know my name. When I find something that I love, I stock up!
The Gym – Weight Lifting
Sports Bra – Lululemon – All Sport 3 Strap
Shorts – Lululemon – Speed Shorts
Tank – Lululemon – Cool Racerback Tank
Lets start from the top, I love this sports bra because it sucks you in and it has a higher cut in the front so you don’t have to worry about adjusting your cleavage all the time. It’s a great technical bra while also being cute with the multiple straps in the back! These shorts are my favourite gym shorts, I have them in six colours. They are a great length and very flattering. They’re breezy with the stitching in the back so I don’t overheat. The only con is they have built in undies which I sometimes find annoying. On to the tank, this is such a classic top. It’s light and breathable. It’s a no haste top, throw it on and you’re good to go! I have this top in a few colours and I love layering it under tshirts when I’m not working out. It’s versatile. Of all of the items above I would highly recommend the tank if you’re in the market for a new one!
Sports Bra – Nike – Nike Pro Classic Bra
Shorts – Lululemon- Go The Distance Short
Top – Lululemon- Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve Crew
This bra is simple and to the point. It doesn’t rub you the wrong way while you’re running and keeps the girls in check. It does really flatten you out which I personally don’t mind but to each their own! I love these shorts, they’re my half marathon shorts. They’re so light and have a bit of extra length which is good if you’re prone to chafing. They’re also reversible which is lovely because they’re easy to match! This top is another classic that most girls have. It’s soft and comfortable. It’s made of lulu’s magic anti stink fabric that doesn’t grow bacteria. Who doesn’t love that! Of my running outfit I would recommend the shorts!
Tank-Lululemon- Flow Y Tank
Pants- Lululemon – Align Pants
Shorts – Under Armour – 4″ Compression
This top is form fitting and has a built in bra so it’s perfect for a flow (hence the name) you won’t need to adjust it constantly so you can focus on your practice. It’s also a great layering tank. THESE PANTS ARE AMAZING. Find your nearest Lulu and just go touch them. They’re insanely soft. They are part of their “Naked” collection so the idea is you feel like you’re not wearing pants. They really follow you’re movement so you don’t need to pull them up all the time. These shorts are nice if you’re having a “bad ass” day because it perks up your booty. They’re compression shorts so they’re nice and thick so you don’t have to worry about them being see through during down-dog. Obviously of all the items above I recommend the pants, they’re amazing.
Canoeing (or any water sport)
Sports Bra – Lululemon – All Sport Bra
Shorts – Under Armour – HeatGear
Tank – Lululemon – What the Sport Tank
Top – Swiftly Teach Long sleeve Crew
This is my all time favourite sports bra. If you need a new one please buy this one its the best. It sucks you in and the wide straps don’t dig into your shoulders at all. These are the shorts I mentioned before. They’re my favourite training shorts. I’m not even sure why. This tank top is so light and has great coverage. Lastly, I love layering this long sleeve over my tank tops in the morning when it’s a bit chilly! I would of course recommend the all sport bra our of these four items!
I hope you find this helpful if you’re in the market for new gym gear!
