Flatter Your Figure

Go For Breathable Fabric

Many people love to wear workout attire with ventilated mesh areas. This type of workout clothing is usually made of breathable fabrics like nylon, spandex, and polyester.

Go Wild With Color

Well-Fitted Sports Bra

You don’t want the wrong sports bra for the sake of both the look and the feel. If you’re wearing the wrong size or impact level of a sports bra, you won’t feel great while you workout. The appearance of your breasts should be perky and in place while you work out. Your sports bra straps may peek out from your shirt or tank top, so go for something that matches your attire.

Athleisure Fun
