Get Back In Shape, In Style!
Posted by Andriana Verdi
Every year early January lures lapsed gym members back to the treadmills in hopes of keeping their resolutions. Now that you’ve committed to our Action Plan (and next week permits more rigorous exercise), there’s a good chance you’ll be among the masses swiping your membership card and waiting in line for an elliptical. If your workoutwear has seen better days (or you're worried that your holiday indulgences will be obvious in those ill-fitting spandex), try these figure-flattering pieces so you can brave the crowds with confidence.
1 The Lululemon Cross My Heart Bra is good for a yoga class or a sprint on the treadmill. This flat-seamed (read: no chafing) bra has a moisture wicking liner that actually controls and separates and removable cups for added shape and coverage.
2 The Lucy Perfect Core Pants feature xBAR compressive technology which means strategically placed mesh insets on the abdominal and lower back, reminding you to keep your core engaged—plus it smoothes and shapes problem areas.
3 If you’re more comfortable with cropped, these Reebok Shapewear capris feature an inner compression system with “Shape N’ Hug” panels that smooth the waist, hip, and rear, and they’re made of moisture wicking Play Dry fabric.
4 The ultimate in modesty, the Merrell Cayley Tank has wide straps, a stretchy underlay across the chest, and an empire waist that flatters any shape. Plus, its opti-wick technology pulls moisture away from the body keeping you cool.
5 If you’re looking for more coverage, try the Moving Comfort Talent Tee with short sleeves and a feminine scoop neck. The pique mesh fabric is breathable and the shapely seams skim the body without hugging—and it’s available in plus sizes.
6 Made specifically for the gym, these new Pumagility kicks sport a wider lightweight foam sole that compresses on impact, providing flexibility and serious stability.
