While shopping for some new workout wear, I made a point of doing a mini exercise routine in the dressing room. I needed to see how the clothes moved with my body. If I couldn’t see my upper body, abs or quads move, then the gear’s too loose.
I tested clothes in my current size (18/20) and a size smaller (14/16). I did a couple of squats, bicep curls and mountain climbers, keeping a watchful eye out for anything bunching or revealing.
Two styles of shirts passed the test and three failed. The Capri leggings fit perfectly. The best thing about the test: The smaller sized clothes won out!
I ended up buying my new gear at Lane Bryant. I liked what I saw at Old Navy, but my new favorite store just couldn’t beat Lane Bryant’s 40% off everything sale. Cha-ching!!
Also Lane Bryant just rolled out its new TruDry line where the fabric pulls moisture away from your skin. Perfect for sweaty workouts!
I ended up with a couple of Capri leggings, tank tops and tees — all 40% off!
