I go to the gym, thus I own and wear workout clothes... But I won't wear my gear just out and about or to uni because I think it's pretentious... And like I said, I do actually gym, so it's not like I am jealous or anything that they (also) look good in their workout wear
Noooo I do not wear gym clothes as normal clothes, and I find the idea of owning gym clothes when you never ever go to the gym to be really quite odd.
I wear gym clothes to the gym only. No Lorna Jane though, they are so overpriced, their tights are all too big for me, and I hate the tacky slogan shirts.
Like a PP I also have a phobia of trackies. And t-shirts. *shudders*
There are plenty of stylish clothes that are also comfortable.
Also, wearing gym clothes when you're not exercising not only is not my cup of tea, but it also breaks another fashion rule- do not wear leggings as pants!!
Not outside the house!
Uh no way!!
I would never do it.
Even the most fit of people, with no fatty wobble whatsoever, don't look particularly nice in workout gear.
I own 1 pair of tracksuit pants that I've had for years - and they're about a size 18 so I'm guessing they won't fit me anymore. lol. They're my "It's Winter and I'm unwell," pants that I wear while sulking about being unwell on the couch. They would NEVER be worn outdoors. Not even to check the mail.
I am all about presenting myself well in public - trackpants and workout gear doesn't present me well at all. lol.
Well I'm not wearing my workout stuff at the moment because I'm 24 weeks pregnant. The only public places I would wear it (other than the park whilst exercising of course!) would be to drop off DS at childcare or for a quick supermarket pick up. That would be BEFORE I've begun exercising too - NOT after! Eww
I'm 32 weeks pregnant and still going to the gym, but not getting particularly sweaty while I'm there since I need to keep my heartrate down, so then I'll often wear the clothes for the rest of the day.
When not pregnant I only really wear my gym clothes to the gym, and have to change and shower straight after because I'm usually drenched in sweat. I don't do the relaxed type workouts.
Other than that I'm a jeans and t-shirts type of girl. I'm a dag, a total dag, but I wouldn't put on workout clothes unless I was going to the gym. NO issues with people who do though.
In fact, I'm about to put them on, as we TYPE. Bwahahaha.
In saying that, I have a really nice butt that looks amazing in gym shorts.
Yes, I'm having a "Damn you look GOOD day"
