January’s almost upon us and it’s probably dawning on you that if you’re going to put your fitness resolution into action, now’s the time to start getting your act together. Don’t despair, though – we know something that’ll make hitting the gym a lot more appealing…
Let us introduce you to the kit that’ll make you want to work out:
Flattering sports bras
If you don’t like the way traditional sports bras look, don’t be tempted to go for everyday women’s lingerie. Give this Shock Absorber Active Zipped Plunge Sports Bra (£25) a try. With its plunge neckline and zip front, it’ll give you a feminine shape while still holding you perfectly in place. Bounce control protects the delicate bust area from the negative effects of your workout, while the breathable, moisture-wicking fabric ensures you stay comfortable.Do you dread donning a sports bra because you can’t face going without padding? The Shock Absorber Padded Pump Sports Bra here (£29) is your saviour. Removable padding allows you to enhance your shape while the back opening makes it easy to put on and take off. The bra’s high-performance moisture-wicking and breathable fabric also makes this your perfect pick.The flattering sports trousers
If you’re not ready to brave skin-tight leggings from day one (we don’t blame you – we couldn’t resist those extra mince pies either), opt for straight leg trousers. The Elle Sport Performance Pants here (£36) not only feature a thigh and calf-skimming straight leg, they also have a comfy and flattering wide waistband. Bright colours
Let fun shades help you feel energised and motivated. The bright neon Elle Sport Essentials Vest here (£12) is great for adding a little sunshine to your workout, while the cotton-rich fabric with added stretch makes this racer back top a comfy and flattering choice.The shaping swimwear
If you’re easing yourself into exercise by taking up swimming, do it in style with a little curve control. The Speedo Premiere Body Shaping Swimsuit here (£40), features elasticated seaming to support your bust, while clever control panels across the tummy area gives gorgeous figure definition. The colour will stay looking great, too, as this Speedo swimsuit is 20 times more fade resistant than other conventional swim fabrics.If you like the idea of a halterneck swimsuit with a splash of colour, you’ll love the Elle Sport Tummy Control Swimsuit here (£34). Not only does this stylish one-piece feature tummy control, it also has removable padding at the bust and ruching at the sides for a flattering, rather than clingy, finish.
