It's hot out. The kind of hot that makes you sweat even when you're not running outside, just walking out to your parking spot... it's that kind of hot for most of us in the US. So I'm thinking you might be running outside (not past 10 a.m., please!) and going to the gym midday... are you comfortable?

I think a workout is made so much easier with the proper wardrobe to workout longer and of course look good while you're doing it! Shapeez doesn't launch their new secret weapon until the middle of this next month, August, but they are coming out with "The Unbelieveabra Tankee", which is supposed to be the most heavenly sports bra solution ever created. I don't think that many are too amazing, so I'm ready for anything new. Most seem like just a giant piece of elastic smashing your boobs down to your body - not so pretty! This tank top like solution can go under clothes seeming like nothing is there without back closures and bands or just be used to work out for ultimate support and cooling with its moisture wicking fabric. I would pre-order this one, it's going to be a big hit! Prices range from $75 to $85 and it comes in nude and white, cropped and torso-length.
So that's your top, what about your bottoms? I think it's the worst trying to find a workout short that a thong can go under or shorts with built in underwear - always a nightmare! Affinitas Intimates has come up with a 90% cotton and 10% spandex thong that won't lead to chafing or moisture build-up during that 90-minute Bikram class. This basic thong is available at various boutiques and online web stores and is $12. Sometimes simple is the best way to go!
And please, be simple and pull your hair back to top off the appropriate gym/workout attire. I've seen so many women with their Rapunzel hair cascading down their backs while they sweat... be comfortable people! FIT2BMOM's Moisture-Wicking Headbands pull hair away from your gorgeous face while looking cute too. From now until August 10th, select styles will be on sale, so visit FIT2BMOM.com now while supplies last.
All in all, I think the beauty of working out these days is all the modern technology that lets you be super comfortable while getting a killer workout. So utilize new fabrics and simple fix-its, you'll burn more calories pushing it on the treadmill running than readjusting your wardrobe and trying to rearrange your perfectly coiffed curls!
