4 Main Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Activewear Collection

May 27, 2020

If you pack your sweaters away once winter is over but don’t do the same with old activewear, then it’s time for a change. If you’re an avid workout lover, or even if you only find the motivation to work out once a month, your clothes say a lot about you. But more than that, they say something to you about your motivation and your confidence. If you’re wearing old sports bras, ratty T-shirts, and leggings that no longer fit, you’re not doing yourself a favor. Turn that lack of confidence upside-down—check out these signs it’s time to replace your activewear collection, and see what some new clothes can do for your workout routine and your confidence!

If Your Sports Bras Don’t Lock You In

Repeat after me: If you run, jump, squat, or generally move, and you feel like your chest isn’t secure, then it’s time for a change. A quality sports bra is one of the most crucial activewear pieces you should invest in. That said, you may need to invest in a few different kinds—some are great for high-intensity, and others flow better for yoga. Take the time and save the money to get a bra that supports you!

If There’s a Permanent Smell

It may be your favorite pair of leggings or shoes, but if there’s a stink that doesn’t go away, then it’s time to toss them. Some clothes, no matter how many times you wash them, have been worn too much and loved too hard to lose their stinky smell. You can keep this from happening by letting your gym stuff air out, not letting your shoes heat up in your car, and washing regularly. But if the stink is still there, then buy some new goods.

If You’re Losing Out on Elasticity

Another important sign it’s time to replace your activewear collection deals with stretch. If your leggings fall down, no matter how hard you pull them up, then you either got the wrong size or brand, or you’ve worn out the elasticity. So many people ignore this problem, but it can really harm your performance and confidence in the long run. We’ve talked quite a bit about boosting your confidence, and wearing leggings that slide down or don’t fit is one of the main culprits.

But the loss of elasticity happens with more than leggings. It also happens to bras, socks, and even shirts. If it’s too loose, toss it out.

If Items Are See-Through...and They’re Not Supposed to Be

We can’t stress this one enough—if your clothes are see-through, and they’re not supposed to be, then you need to get some new pieces. Your leggings shouldn’t show everything when you squat. Sure, some items intentionally give that see-through look—mesh is in. But if you’re getting that mesh look, and you didn’t pay for that, then it’s time to head in a new direction.
