Women's bodies change frequently for a variety of reasons. Whether we are dealing with PMS, pregnancy and the postpartum aftermath, and weight fluctuations, life must go on. We can't just go into hiding because we neither look nor feel our best. One of the places where we are likely the most uncomfortable is the gym. Form-fitting clothes and spandex can add extra pressure when we're already feeling low. Wouldn't it be great to just walk in, push through your workout, and finish out the day without feeling self-conscious about it?
You're in luck! The simple solution to this problem is to buy some workout attire that is a bit more modest and forgiving. Check out these options that will hopefully inspire you to hold your head up high and get back on track with your workouts!
