Post-Christmas (and all that food!) it can feel nice to shake up our diets and exercise regimes. After all, the days are (slowly) getting lighter, spring is a mere few months away, and we can start thinking about our next summer holiday…
But where to start? With our wardrobes, of course! Once you've got the essentials (a good bra, top, trainers and leggings) you can hit the gym, go for a scenic country walk or swing by the class of your choice.
We've selected our key exercise wardrobe staples, as modelled by Love Island's Kaz Crossley…
1. High impact, minimal bounce sports bra
With easy zip front fastening, this ultra-secure, non-wired sports bra is designed to be seen – or layered up with a matching top (which is easy thanks to its cool cross back design). It's super-comfy to wear, helped by removable soft padded cups, adjustable wider straps, a deep underband, breathable liners and added Polyamide/Elastane for stretch. Available in sizes 34-38B, 40C-F and 42C-E.
2. The ultimate legging
Need a pair of leggings you can run, box, or go spinning in? Flatteringly high-and-deep-waisted (and contour-seaming across thighs and derriere to compliment any bodytype), these leggings are fantastic at holding and shaping. On a really practical level, they've been designed with mesh inserts to help provide ventiliation – while Dri.more technology has been used on the fabric to keep you cool and dry. Other great features? Flat lock seaming provides extra comfort when moving around - and a discreet pocket has been included for phones or wallets.
3. The perfect exercise top
Ease and comfort are key when it comes to choosing that perfect workout top – and moisture wicking helps, too! Opt for a relaxed, slightly loose shape with mesh inserts on the front and back (plus an envelope opening) to keep you cool and ventilated during your next gym session.
