When choosing gym wear, it's not all about looking on-trend, there are so many factors to consider when you select the perfect sportswear. First, you need to think about what activities you will be doing. Not all sportswear is designed for any sport. For example, loose-fitting comfy joggers might be great for yoga or doing some slow and steady weightlifting, but they might not be the best fabric or fit for going running. Next, you should be looking at the fabric content. If you know you are going to be getting sweaty, you will need to opt for performance fabrics that have wicking properties. This simply means the fabric is designed to keep you cool and wick away any moisture, so you stay feeling fresh no matter how hard you work. If you enjoy intense sports and activities, opt for gym wear made from a durable fabric. The thicker the better when it comes to sports leggings in particular.
What gym leggings should I buy?
Gym leggings are an absolute sports lovers stable! If you are joining a gym then sports leggings are a must. Leggings are great all year round as the fabric will protect you in winter but still leave you feeling cool in summer. You can wear them all year round and if you buy the right ones, your new leggings could last you years. There are different types of sports leggings to look out for. As mentioned, you can opt for a loose-fitting comfy style like the Calvin Klein CK Form Jogger Pant or you can go for a form-fitting, supporting choice. Leggings should be comfortable but feel like they are helping you perform, not hindering you. If you want performance leggings you can rely on that still look funky, go for the Pour Moi Energy Printed Mesh Panel Capri Legging. These three-quarter leggings have sweat-wicking properties, high waist support and useful pockets. We are also loving the Pour Moi Energy Printed Mesh Panel Legging in leopard/coral for an on-trend and eye-catching look. Made from a blend of polyester and elastane, these leggings will be durable with a good stretch.

What sports bra should I wear?
Again this largely depends on what activity you are doing At Belle Lingerie we have a large selection of high impact and low impact sports bras to choose from. If you are doing an intense activity like HIIT or running, you will likely need a supportive sports bra design to absorb high impact. Or if you have a fuller bust you may feel more comfortable in a high impact sports bra as it will largely eliminate bounce and keep you feel secure throughout your gym session. If you are keeping to minimal movement, or have a smaller bust, you could opt for a low impact sports bra as a comfy and lightweight choice. Our favourite sports bras right now include the Shock Absorber Multi Sports Support Bra and the Pour Moi Energy Pulse Longline Padded Sports Bra. You can find padded and non-padded sports bras as well as wired and non-wired sports bras in our collection. It's all about personal preferences and choosing the right gym wear for you.
