Workout clothes for different body types

Sometimes it is hard to find clothes that make us feel good and confident. Clothes that show off our good points and hide the bad. It's even harder when the clothes are all tight and made from lycra.

It can be enough to turn me off working out when I can't find clothes that I want to work out in. Here are some clothes I found for:

Curvy thighs and/or bottom. I love these tights from Skirts Sport. It has an attached skirt over capri length tights. The skirt helps disguise jiggly bottoms, sweaty crotches and camel toes. There's usually sightings of these all around gym. It's their natural habitat.
Lotta Breeze Capri $75
Curvaceous Bottom. This skort from Lorna Jane is so cute. Keeps the dimples and hungry bum hidden under the cute pleated skirt.
Brittan Skort $75.95
Mummy tummy. Team this Lorna Jane singlet with high waisted tights. Low riding tights add to the tummy tummy and high waisted tights will smooth the lumps and bumps.
Tanni Excel $59.99
These Skirts Sport tights have a rolled waist band. You can roll them up or down.
Evermore Capris $65
Tuckshop arms or Bingo Wings. Another top from Lorna Jane. This has loose sleeves and a mesh back. This will keep you looking and feeling cool. Yup, I said it.
Melody T-shirt $59.99
Or like me, you can wear of combinations of all the above.
Now, my playlist for this week is:

  1. Battle Scars - Guy Sebastian. This is one of my favorite songs ATM
  2. Bitch - Meredith Brooks
  3. Are we all we are - P!nk. I can not stop singing this
  4. I knew you were trouble - Taylor Swift. I download this for my girls and then like the beat. I realise this sounds like I am making excuses...and I am
  5. Shake you Pom Pom - Missy Elliot
  6. Play Hard - David Guetta
  7. The boy does nothing - Alesha Dixon
  8. Could've had everything - P!nk
  9. Ho Hey - The Lumineers
  10. Baby it's cold outside - Glee. Getting my Christmas on and a nice slow cooling down track


  1. Thanks Rachel for those suggestions. I love the idea of the fold down pair of tights - they keep everything tucked in and are also good for classes like yoga or pilates when you have to stretch up, down and round and round. No-one is going to be able relax if they have to view my stomach. No one. Especially me who has to keep tugging my top down.

  2. Thanks Rachel! I'm going to check out those skirts might make me feel more comfortable.

    1. I have a few pairs of the tights/skirts. I love them.

  3. thank you, thank you, thank you. I have been looking for something like this. dusting off my credit card now.
