Dare2B have got you covered when it comes to activewear, starting with the vision of bringing new and fresh, innovative activewear clothing to both men and women.


Women's Gym Wear Essentials

Thanks to activewear fashion, the clothes you choose to wear when working out have never been more important. From lightweight gym t-shirts and gym leggings made from high quality fabrics to fashionable hoodies and sports bras, there is a wide selection available on the market. But which clothes do you need? Which items are essential for your activewear lifestyle? Well, this roundup will guide you through some of them.

Gym Top

When buying a gym top, you don't think as much about it compared to when you buy other clothes. When you consider a gym top, you just need it to keep your body ventilated when training and for that, you don't particularly have to spend so much on it. But there are other aspects that you don't pay attention to, which can say a lot about the gym wear.

Whether you prefer a tank top, short sleeve or even long sleeve gym top, you need to ensure your top has performing qualities to assist you in your workout. Look out for tops made with a lightweight, sweat-wicking material that moves sweat away from your skin in order to keep you cooler. Dare 2b gym tops also feature anti-bacterial odour control in lots of our activewear tops, so you can feel confident before and after your workout.

Sports Bra

Sports bras, like running shoes, come in all shapes and sizes. It doesn’t matter what kind of sports bra you’re wearing if it isn’t the right size. A sports bra has the power to make or break your workout, so choosing the right one is essential.

When looking for a sports bra it's important to consider what exercise you will taking in part in, as the sports bra you choose should depend on the level of impact. For instance if you were taking part in pilates, you would only be looking for a low impact whereas if you were planning on running you'd be better off with a high impact sports bra. Other features you should look for are: quick drying, sweat wicking material that will help to keep sweat at bay.

Gym Leggings

Style is a key component when it comes to activewear, gym leggings in particular. When it comes to style you need to think about what activities you will be carrying out when wearing your leggings, do you need any pockets for your phone or keys? More importantly, it's essential that your leggings help you perform. Like with a gym top, sweat-wicking fabric is important so that you're not bound when working out. Arguably most important when it comes to gym leggings is the fit, you don't want your workout being interrupted by your leggings slipping or rolling causing you to be uncomfortable.
