Why hide the body you’ve worked so hard for under baggy pants and tees? Here are some great ways to look great in fitness clothes.

The Best Workout Clothes for Pear Shapes

Do…wear light colors on top to draw eyes up and away from your thighs. Choose flared pants to balance and lengthen your shape.

Don’t…wear bottoms with stripes down the sides of the legs. They’ll make your hips seem fuller.

The Best Workout Clothes for Rectangle Shapes

Do…create the illusion of curves with tops that have ruching along the sides and pants that have a pop of color at the hips. A sports bra with a little padding and a tank with a low neckline will play up your assets.

Don’t…wear one color from head to toe. It will make you look blocky.

The Best Workout Clothes for Apple Shapes

Do…opt for a loose top that ties or cinches, which will define your middle and conceal your tummy. Fitted capris or tights flatter your toned legs.

Don’t…wear flared bottoms. They’ll throw off your proportions by adding bulk.

The Best Workout Clothes for Hourglass Shapes

Do…choose tops with a V or scoop neck and detailing near your midsection to show off your trim waist. Especially as it gets warmer, strut your fit quads in a skort instead of running shorts.

Don’t…hide behind high necks and loose clothes. You’ll only look larger.
