flattering fitnesswear

We don’t all rock tiny shorts and crop tops to the gym — and maybe that’s okay. While we’re ready to get down and dirty during a workout, if we can look cute while doing it – so much the better. We brought together this round-up of eleven super-flattering workout pieces that aren’t too complex or over the top. We’re hesitant to call anything ‘universally flattering’ – you know your body best – but you’re bound to find a piece or two here that will bring out your best assets…

Live the Process Corset Bodysuit | A catsuit? Yup. It’s not for everyone, but give it a try — you might surprise yourself! We’ve been amazed over the years at how many readers have shopped bodysuits with us. We love the body confidence, people! Sizes here suit about a size 0 to a size 10. CHECK OUT

Alo Yoga Bandage Bra | We love the lines of this bandage bra. The simple monochrome color story makes it suitable for everyday workouts while the chic lines make it (and you) a stunner. CHECK OUT

Live the Process Ballet Leggings | Longest. Legs. Ever. The lengthy, unbroken lines of these waist-to-toe leggings accentuate your legs. If it’s a leg lengthening effect you’re after this pair can add the appearance of inches.

Alo Yoga Peak Bra | Some of Alo’s bra tops are so beautiful, they seem a short leap away from cocktail attire. The asymmetrical design of this top adds style and flattering highlights without a thousands straps and embellishments. CHECK OUT

LNA Cross V Rib Tank | All-black is always flattering. And this tank style is super easy. Another subtle asymmetrical style draws attention to the body’s longest lines. . CHECK OUT
LNA X Back Tank | The modern girl’s muscle tank. No need to show skin to look incredible. The wide straps on this tank flatter anyone’s proportions and provides an easy transition from gym to street. CHECK OUT
Beyond Yoga Spacedye High Waisted Ombre Long Leggings | Beyond Yoga’s spacedye leggings are a workout wardrobe must. The high rise waist flatters most body types and tucks you in. The speckled texture and thick soft material look great with every workout top imaginable. CHECK OUT
Alo Cover Tank | Crop tops can be surprisingly flattering. Detail at the waist can be flattering when done right. For curvy bodies, crops can draw attention to your narrowest point. For athletic shapes, it creates definition around the waist. CHECK OUT
Sweaty Betty Power Leggings | Bum sculpting — need we say more? The tush-tightening material lifts the bum and flatters where it matters, creating smooth lines you’ll love. Super stretchy and supportive, these leggings are one of the most flattering fitnesswear pieces we’ve come across.  CHECK OUT
Pure Lime Seamless Long Sleeve Crew | Long vertical lines flatter just about everyone. These side-skimming details cinch the waist and add subtle style points. The seamless design allows for maximum freedom of movement while creating an incredibly comfortable fit. CHECK OUT
Michi Inversion Leggings | If you think you can only wear black on the bottom, think again. While some full color pieces can create a blocky look, the subtle details in this legging create long, lean lines in all the right places. The eight-way stretch and chafe-resistant flat seams make it comfortable as well — and what’s more flattering than that? CHECK OUT
