Flattering workout clothes for women
Whether the purpose of exercise is to lose weight, maintain a toned physique, or train for a triathlon, there is no reason a woman can’t look fabulous doing it. In the same way that a woman shops for jeans or formal wear that best complements her body shape, searching for flattering workout wear can take the same approach. In addition to choosing the proper clothes that befit the proper sport, there is nothing like a body flattering workout ensemble to boost morale.
The first priority when searching for workout clothes is to consider athletic goals or body movements so that the clothes will not be a hindrance to performance levels. For example, a runner may not get the best results from an outdoor run in the heat of summer while wearing a pair of yoga pants. Likewise, donning some loose fitting running shorts for yoga class may be a bit too revealing and break necessary concentration.
When shopping for workout clothes in a department store or specialty athletic store, it’s a good idea to start by perusing clothes made specifically for a type of sport or activity. From there it is easier to narrow down the options of the clothes that flatter specific body shapes. For those women who enjoy a great selection, with a variety of options for all budgets, shopping online may be a better option. Purchasing an entire workout wardrobe can get costly, but don’t let that hinder your enthusiasm for getting physical. Simply choose an online marketplace such as eBay that offers a wide selection with a range of prices.

In that article seem to have a problem with the "sausage casing girls."
As one of them mentions, "Fat or skinny, it doesn't matter," she said. "The guys in there will look at you if you're wearing a little skirt and hoochie tank top."
When I was a teenager it was fashionable to wear jeans so tight you had to soap the zipper and use pliers to get them on, then for a while it was loose Flashdancey workout clothes, then baggy stuff, now sausage casings, and there was always some editorial on how horrible these fashions were compared to the ones from a couple of years ago. Guys seem to keep on looking at girls despite it all though.
