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