2022 is in FULL SWING! Which means getting rid of the old clothing that has lived in the back of your closet. Rather than keeping apparel that collects dust, invest in activewear that you will love to wear, and your body will love to move in. If you haven't worn activewear before, let us help you get a better idea of what it is and share the best activewear tops for you!
What is Activewear?
Over the last couple of years, activewear has become a huge trend! However, what exactly is it? And why should you wear it? Activewear is clothing meant to support and enhance your athletic performance. It is designed to provide you with comfort and style while you visit the gym or go for your morning or afternoon run.
Wearing activewear doesn't stop at the gym; you can wear it for running errands or going to lunch with your girls. Activewear is a wardrobe essential for any woman looking to add versatile pieces to their style. When you want to feel and look great, activewear is a great choice that will prepare you for anything.
What To Look for in Your Activewear
When was the last time you bought activewear? If you're anything like us, you probably buy multiple tops every year. Odds are it's because you love to stay up to date with the latest styles, but it could also mean buying more because of lack of durability. Whatever your reason, let us fill you in on what to look for in your activewear tops!
Moisture management and breathability
Sweating is natural, which means that your clothes should be prepared no matter how active you get. Clothes with moisture management are great for quickly evaporating your sweat and keeping you cool. Wet and heavy apparel can be irritating! When buying activewear moisture-absorbance and breathability should be your main focus.
Activewear tops are versatile pieces that are for a variety of environments and occasions. Such occasions include your hot yoga class, going to the store, or even a relaxing hike. When picking the right top for you, keeping these activities in mind is important for ensuring you find the best comfort. Why does it matter? Depending on why you wear your activewear, the fit you need will vary.
For your workouts, activewear tops should allow you to move freely without needing to make frequent adjustments. After all, nothing stops you from giving it your all at the gym. The same goes for the other activities in your life that you will want to wear activewear for!
While you might pick activewear based on its style, you will also want to consider its functionality. Questions you will want to ask include “Will this activewear be useful for my activities?” and “Will this apparel support my movements?” to start. The best rule of thumb is if it does not provide you with useful support, it’s not the right top for you! Testing out your range of motion in activewear tops is the best way of determining if it will keep up with your lifestyle.
Now that we have considered the fit and functionality of your next activewear top, let's not forget about the style. As we mentioned before you can wear activewear tops for exercising and everyday wear. With this in mind, you might want to consider how versatile a top is before you buy it. Why does versatility matter? It allows you to get the most out of your outfits and will keep you comfortable in whatever your day might hold!
Choosing Your Activewear Material
Picking which fabric is best for your activewear can be difficult. You don't want to risk getting a top that might be too stiff or scratchy. Knowing the functions of various fabrics will help you understand the texture of the clothing and overall comfort.
While active, your clothes will either support you or be your worst enemy! If you are very active, highly breathable fabrics should be at the top of your list. No matter the cut or style, Jofit has performance-focused tops, providing moisture management and wicking properties to motivate you to keep moving. Let's get into the different fabrics out there and what to look for when you shop.
Polyester is your best friend! It is incredibly durable, moisture-wicking, breathable, and much more that works to keep you dry. It’s the perfect fabric for many types of exercises and weather conditions. If you want insulated clothing, polyester is a great choice.
Polyester Pro Tip: Wash your polyester activewear after working out to avoid any bacteria and fungi growth.
Get your body moving with spandex! If you need a high range of motion during your yoga class or activities that require flexibility in your movement, try out this fabric! Spandex allows your body to do what it does best, move!
Spandex Pro Tip: Spandex can stretch bigger than its natural state; to maintain your spandex, wash your apparel on cold and avoid the machine dryer.
Modal fabric is a form of rayon but differs as modal is slightly more flexible and softer. The fabric is more sustainable than cotton, making it an ethical long-lasting fabric that you and your wallet will love. If you want a fabric that is incredibly soft, you've found your ideal activewear material!
Modal Pro Tip: When washing the modal fabric, use cold water and dry on low and medium-high to help prevent any shrinking.
The absorbency in rayon fabric makes it a great addition to the comfort of your apparel. Rayon is popular in activewear as it is breathable and more moisture-absorbent than cotton. With a silk-like feel, this fabric will feel great when exercising.
Rayon Pro Tip: When washing rayon fabric, use cold water and avoid machine drying. It’s essential that you are cautious when using heat on this material!
