I work in a secondary school and next Friday is sports relief. we have two options wear our sports clothes or dress as a sports hero.
I am a size 20-22. I have really nice/comfortable gym leggings and a long ish black top that I wear for exercising. but I dont want to wear them infront of my 11-16yr olds! I don't want to spend much money. what do I do?

Borrow a judo suit?

Hmm, could you say that your sport is swimming, but that would not really be appropriate, so you had to accessorise <whatever you DO want to wear> with arm bands, goggles around your neck, etc etc?

Or, similar for other sports - just wear something that nods to sporty rather than is revealing/tight if that's not your thing.

Honestly people never think of all the ramification of these dress-up things, do they?

Can you borrow harry potter gear and a broomstick and go as a quidditch player?

Or wear jeans, a mans polo shirt, loads of chunky bling...darts player?

You could wear a towelling robe with leggings underneath, flip flops and do the swimming accessories that Hazel suggested?

Or sallopettes and a coat and be a skier.

Or big baggy rugby shirt over leggings and be a rugby player?

Or a track suit and a whistle and go as a coach!

I hate dressing up!

Thanks everyone going to have a good think about your ideas. They're fab!. Out of school I love fancy dress (not kinky) but they're all hyper on a Friday.....and none uniform too means you have to keep them on task and dressed up does not help!
I'd thought goggles and a synchronised swimmer cap? added issue is person who makes the rules bans jeans at any non uniform. so makes me annoyed!
