We’re all ready to shake off the winter woolies in more ways than one. It’s no wonder gym memberships shoot up this time of the year. We’re dreaming of summer days lazing at an azure-blue body of water. Donning your luminous swimwear may be a daunting prospect, however. Exercise is a great way to feel confident and a tool to get you ready for sunshine and sand. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be a sweaty slog. With our ladies sportswear guide, you can work out in comfort.
The science behind no-sweat ladies sportswear
Science is amazing. Now, you can exercise without pools of sweat gathering in embarrassing places. Moisture-wicking technology, thermoregulation, and odour-resistant materials should be top of mind when choosing ladies sportswear. Here’s why:
Moisture-wicking technology and sweat management go hand and pit
Moisture-wicking fabrics have something called ‘capillary’ action. This pulls sweat away from the body to the outer surface of your sports garment. You’ll feel dryer and cooler because sweat can easily evaporate. What’s more, some performance fabrics with moisture-wicking properties are stain-resistant. Now, you can go straight to your lunch date after an intense workout!
No-sweat ladies sportswear regulates body temperature
Thermoregulation is a beautiful invention indeed! Thermoregulating properties in sportswear draw heat and vapour closer or further from the body, depending on the climate. This means that your chosen ladies sportswear can be worn all year round. Score!
Odour-resistant materials are the best thing since toast!
What’s not to love about odour-resistant ladies sportswear? Apart from the obvious, these have anti-microbial properties to stop the growth of bacteria.
Here’s what to wear when exercising
There are many no-sweat ladies sportswear options out there. When shopping, look for items such as:
- Moisture-wicking tops and t-shirts,
- Sweat-resistant leggings and shorts,
- Ventilated sports bras
- Cooling workout accessories. These include cooling towels that cool down when wet, cooling vests worn over workout clothes, cooling wristbands that use thermoelectric technology to send cooling sensations to the skin, and cooling hair accessories made of moisture-wicking fabric.
