How to Choose Activewear?
What kind of activewear will you choose for yoga class?
Your activewear will depend largely on your personal preference, as well as the style of yoga you plan to practice.
- Breathable, flexible bottoms active leggings
- A breathable, narrow- or form-fitting active bras that won’t hang over your head when you’re upside down.
- A comfortable active accessories that you need to help you get through your active lifestyle
Caliza Rossi activewears are made with polyester-nylon-spandex blends. These fabrics offer the right balance of comfort, breathability and flexibility. When choosing which outfit to wear, you can also consider many different things from your mood to the type of class. Consider one or more of the following when picking out an outfit to wear.
- Comfort: There’s nothing worse than practicing yoga in an uncomfortable piece of clothing. As you tune into your body, you don’t want to focus on itchy seams and tags, saggy or too tight waistbands, or fabric that binds and chafes.
- Breathability: Depending on the type of yoga you practice, you may sweat a little or a lot. Particularly if you’re sweating a lot, it’s important to wear breathable and moisture-wicking materials to keep you cool and comfortable. Tank tops, shirts with cutouts and yoga active pants with mesh pockets will all improve breathability and venting. Avoid cotton, which holds moisture, makes you feel hot and damp, then leaves you prone to chafing or getting chilled when class winds down.
- Flexibility: Yoga involves bending, stretching, binding, lunging, reaching and rolling. Your clothes need to be able to keep up with these movements, which means they’ll probably be made lightweight and high-stretch.
Wear clothing that fits you properly comfortable yoga outfits
When choosing clothing for yoga, make sure that it fits properly! Yoga outfits should fit comfortably but not restrict movement. It may seem obvious, but having clothing fit correctly is essential. A poorly fitted pair of pants or shorts can put unnecessary strain on certain areas of your body.
Also, in the same way as shoes, size matters. It’s important to find items that fit well enough so you can move freely through a wide range of asanas. However, if you need to go down a size, remember that most yoga outfits run small. When buying new workout gear, check the sizing charts carefully before purchasing anything.
Loose or tight activewears?
When you first start out with your yoga routine, wearing tight clothes may feel good at first because of all the stretching involved in yoga poses. However, as time goes by, these same clothes might begin to cause discomfort or even pain if worn too long. If this happens, try switching to looser-fitting garments, such as leggings, tights, sweatpants, etc., which allow more room for movement during exercise.
The downside to losing clothes is that they can be uncomfortable if they bunch up and they can cause unexpected wardrobe malfunctions and unintended exposure during inversions. You may also find bottoms with a drawstring waist to be helpful since they feel more secure than elastic waistbands.
Consider layers for weather
Since winter months usually mean colder weather, you’ll probably need to switch into warmer outfits sooner than usual. It is best to wear layers instead of just a single layer of clothing. This helps prevent heat loss from your body when you go outdoors too and from class. As you warm up in your practice, you can peel off the layers to maintain a comfortable temperature.
How much will you be sweating?
On a hot summer day or in a heated yoga studio, most of us find yoga class a bit uncomfortable and sweaty. This discomfort and sweatiness are very common for those who practice hot yoga or vigorous types of classes. If you’re worried about getting sweaty, then you definitely shouldn’t wear cotton or thick fabrics. Long-sleeved tops and regular yoga pants may feel uncomfortable as well.
Instead, opt for high-performance fabrics like Caliza Rossi Quick Dry Athletic Tank Top [AC009] that can wick away sweat and excess moisture. Consider capris or even yoga shorts as bottoms and just a yoga bra as a top. Try to select clothes that offer good ventilation, especially if you’re prone to overheating. Look for shirts that feature mesh panels along the sides, back, and shoulders. They let air flow freely while keeping you cool at the same time.
Can you breathe easily?
Make sure that your top Caliza Rossi Sally [AC006] does not restrict your ability to take a deep breath in. Breathing exercises are an essential component of the practice, so make sure to avoid anything too restrictive or tight around your belly or chest. Most yoginis prefer to wear a loose-fitting top on top of a sports bra over normal bras when practicing. This is because these types of bras provide support where needed without feeling restrictive to your breath.
