Everyone agrees that work-out is necessary and that makes gym wear and yoga wear another important and well stacked division of our closet. But do we really have many choices in terms of gym wear? Gym is now the big destination to flaunt your sexy wardrobe. So for that we need more options. Options that should not make us look any less stylish. People of earlier times always knew that exercise needs separate garments. That’s why if you look at any pure form of martial art, you will notice that they have separate dresses for it.

Although sweat pants and tee-shirts might be cozy and they do make us feel extra comfortable, but they are one of the most non-glam clothes to be worn in the gym. Also it has been scientifically proven that people who are wearing sweat pants and shirts loose lesser calories as compared to people who are wearing proper gym clothes provided the conditions remain the same in both the situation.  Nowadays gym wear has got a new definition where one doesn’t just feel the fabric and buy it. Now it’s more about what the fabric can give more than just the comfort.   That’s when performance clothing kicks in. It’s the zone of innovation as designers are everyday trying to discover more and more about this untapped segment.

In around 1800 women were emphasized to wear corsets and gowns even for athletic activities like horse riding etc. Since they emphasized on modesty so they were long sleeves and buttoned-up. In the 20th century track pants kicked in and it gave birth to the new and improved segment – gym wear.
