Update: not much has changed with my modest workout clothes, just updating some colors and links if you’re in need of a refresh!
Original post: While I usually enjoy exercising, it was hard to fit it in with the kids home over the summer. With vacations and visitors this past month I stopped going to the gym altogether. I am officially back on the wagon and hitting up the gym regularly during the week. I am trying to incorporate a variety of workouts, which require a variety of attire. It has been difficult to find modest workout clothes, almost as much as finding modest swim wear. I have a few pieces I’ll share below. If you have any brands you love, please share!
Modest Workout Clothes
Long Sleeve Workout Shirts
After years of searching, I have found one long sleeve workout shirt that covers my behind to my liking – it is this Gapfit Breathe long sleeve t-shirt (affiliate link). Same shirt in all the pics, just different colors. Update: after 2 years, still my favorite workout top, I’ve just replaced some of the colors.
Modest Workout Pants
Workout Pants have been tricky for me. Intense workouts necessitate more form fitting clothes, but I always feel self conscious about it. I have some pants similar to these joggers (affiliate link) and they are great because they are made of moisture wicking material, but have a looser fit. Affiliate links for more joggers below.
Skirted Workout Leggings
A friend introduced me to skirted leggings (affiliate link), they’re great for low intensity workouts such as yoga. Update: skirted leggings are my new favorite and I have added a few more more pairs to my collection. Affiliate links below.
Sports Bras & Underwear
Make sure you have good moisture wicking sports bras and underwear. I have learned going cheap saves in the short term, but I have to get rid of them within a year. These are slightly more expensive but will last. Affiliate links below.
