Athletic wear, and more specifically athleisure wear, has seen a significant rise in popularity in recent years. Young people have always been drawn to comfortable clothes, but when moms decided to take on the trend, the popularity reached new heights.
Whether you’re a mom who lives in leggings or one that believes they don’t qualify as real pants, you probably appreciate the ease and freedom a comfortable garment provides. These three pieces of clothing aren’t exclusively athletic wear; they can take you from the office to the gym to a restaurant. The best part: no one at dinner will guess that those amazing black pants worked up a sweat in Soul Cycle!
1. Nudy Patooty Short Sleeve Undershirt for Women
An unfortunate but true fact: ladies sweat. But breaking a sweat doesn’t have to make you smell or ruin your clothes. Nudy Patooty offers a variety of colors and styles of undershirts with Dual Dry technology. This unique innovation allows you to stay clean and odor free all day long. The short sleeve style is perfect for layering under your work clothes or wearing alone with a pair of shorts at the gym.
2. Hold Your Haunches Booty Patootie Bootcut
Meet your new favorite pants. These machine-washable pants have a layer of medical grade compression sewn in to visually lift and firm your backside. Made of nylon and spandex, these pants look great with flats, heels, and sneakers. You won’t ever want to take them off!
3. Valleau Apparel The Hammock in Snake Black
Though this pretty sports bra from Valleau Apparel is ideal for the gym, it also makes a great layering piece. Wear it with a backless dress or your favorite tank to add a little interest to a basic outfit. The shimmery finish elevates this bra from the basic black. Bonus: the front offers full coverage and has thick straps so you won’t have to worry about any discomfort while you exercise.
