Where is the best place to go to get suitable clothes? I've finally plucked up the courage and found a class but it starts on monday....Ihave nothing to wear!!! I can't spend too much on it but don't want 'chavvy' sports stuff grin where should i go?

The supermarkets,M&S all do plain yoga pants. You need these, not trackies cos they are stretchy and soft. Then you want a longline tshirt (so it doesn't ride up) - doesn't have to be a sports one, but needs to be roomy for movement. You do want a proper sports bra. And lots of layers - e.g.bra, vest top, hoodie/long sleeve top so you can strip down as you warm up but layer back up for relaxation at the end.

I wear a litle outfit from pineapple:




But the good thing is the tops of the bottoms come up at each side to hide any miffin situation, and the top has a syperfirm band at the bottom so never any ride-up. My top is slightly different though to the one of the link because it has inbuilt bra too.

When I first started pilates I wore loose stuff because I had lots of baby weight. But, once I slimmed down and toned up I found the fitted stuff looked much better (and kept me motivated) and I could see the improvement more easily. I do wear a velour hoody to the class too, and this was just from M&S, it is a smoky blue colour.

I started pilates recently and bought my bottoms and t-shirt from M & S and they are perfect. Enjoy the class! I am loving it.

Thank you so much everyone!! I'm excited and quite scared as I've not done 'propper' exercise for a long long time blush
I know i'm going to suffer! I'm off to look at the layers it is then! I didn't realise i'd need a sports bra-had better look into that smile

You will love it! I really look forward to my class and at the end feel invigorated and like I am a foot taller!

i personally avoid wearing tops with hoods / collars, as they tend to get in the way of my neck. soft,comfy stuff, but it's not a competition, the class i go to, we spend most of the time on the floor on backs or fronts. spend more on a decent mat and a cushion or foam block for your head.

grin grin grin at the pirates!!!! Arrrr!
I'm getting very excited now! Will get to the shops tomorrow or sun and hopefully i'llfind something! Good tip about the hoods/collars!
