You gotta hit the gym but as one can guess, sweating it out can’t usually be without complications, because it is so awkward when you do those extra pushups in top-to-toe covered (clowns’) costumes.

Just make sure you aren’t flashing when you bend or stretch, so test all these angles before you leave the house for the gym, as flashing is not appropriate at least at the gym, when you do your push ups or bending yoga poses. Go for fit crop tops, layered ones that cover the midriff or bandeau style strappy ones.
Lycra and Spandex Leggings
Starting from the bottom, make sure you stop using those stretchable cottony leggings just because they are comfortable from ages. They must be sagging and out of shape by now with all the wear and tear. Material like spandex and lycra are stretchable and long lasting, are more apt to absorb rugged use and are breathable fabrics that make workouts fun without the stress. Opt for bright colors and neon tints, prints and geometric patterns to up the ante!
