What To Wear When You Exercise

It doesn't matter.  Focus on pushing your body, not the fashion envelope.

[Ed. Revised here.]


  1. Disagree, for two reasons. (1) Quality and fit of workout clothes is linked to performance in that I run farther and faster when I wear clothes that fit well, don't adjust against my wishes, don't unravel, and don't chafe. Same goes for other sports - my yoga practice is much better served by my not worrying about whether I'm getting a wedgie or my top will shift when I invert a pose. (2) Just like dressing well and feeling attractive affects my work day and my social interactions, the same goes for my motivation and productivity at the gym. The end.

  2. Dapper District concedes that the rules may be different for women.
