A lot of women are obsessed with achieving a skinny figure because some believe that it is the only way that they’ll look fabulous, be it wearing dresses or workout clothes. 

What they don’t know is that there are a lot of activewear styles that will look even better on curvy women. You need not be skinny or toned to look gorgeous and strong while putting in the work at the gym, outdoors, or in the comfort of your own home. 

The trick is to find the right activewear that will flatter your figure. Having a curvy body doesn’t mean that you should hide in baggy or unflattering gym outfits. There are a lot of great activewear wardrobe essentials that will surely go well no matter your frame or figure.

Looking for cool, sexy and trendy workout clothes can be challenging, especially if you concentrate on items that will only fit the figure of a petite woman. 

Don’t torture yourself by thinking that you’ll be better off being skinny since there are tons of brands today that are creating amazing athleisure essentials that are made to fit all sizes. While you’ll find some workout clothes are meant to cover up the body, you’ll find a lot more that will suit any type of mood or nature of your workout, whether you’re dressing up to run around the block, or for your favourite hot yoga classes with friends. It is a misconception that curvy women today have choices that are just as wide as skinny girls. 

If you’re not sure what activewear to use for your workouts and extracurricular activities, don’t worry because our guide below can help you get started. 

Starter Guide to Looking Great in Activewear

Wick-Resistant Shorts for Comfort

One big mistake that many women make is that they tend to hide their bodies. The key to looking like a complete knockout while wearing a gym outfit is not to hide your body but to emphasise your luscious curves. 

If you are addicted to spinning, one way to flatter your figure while burning calories is to choose items that will contour as well as shape your body. These Sculpt Bike Shorts will hug your hips and legs nicely while ensuring comfort. It features scrunch bum and under bum seams that will lift your bum nicely. It is also high-waist, which means you create an illusion of a flatter, leaner tummy.

A Bra and Leggings Ensemble Perfect for your Body Shape

When you go to a store, you’ll often find the outfits separated according to the type of body frame that will suit it the best. If you have a pear-shaped body, your upper body is noticeably bigger than your lower body. 

Women that have pear-shaped bodies have their own set of advantages. For example, a pear-shaped body will definitely have curvy thighs and hips. Since the upper half of the body is the biggest asset for girls with pear-shaped bodies, a semi-fitted top or this KG Luxe Cropped Tank will fit you the best. 

Pair it with high-waist leggings like this KG Luxe Bottoms, and you’ll be more motivated to work out and be the best version of yourself.

The Hoodie is a Workout Essential you Shouldn’t Skip

Every woman needs to have essential workout items in their wardrobe. A workout essential item is basically a piece of clothing that will look great on almost everything you wear it with. 

These three activewear wardrobe essentials should be in every girl’s wardrobe, and they are: 


A hoodie is every active girl’s best friend (aside from diamonds!). Even a simple cropped hoodie like this KG22 Cropped Hoodie Limited Edition will look great on you, regardless of body size and shape. It’s a versatile activewear essential as you can wear it during winter when you want to stay warm while doing your daily outdoor run.

If you’re working out at home, you can always look good wearing shorts. This is true if you’re working out in the summer. Shirts let your legs breathe, especially during intense leg days. This KG Lounge Shorts is perfect if you’re practising some yoga asanas or if you simply want to do light exercises. 

Seamless Top for a Seamless Workout 

As for the top, you can choose from a wide range of activewear pieces. But if your primary concern is to ensure comfort during workouts, we highly recommend wearing a seamless sports bra that offers moderate to maximum support.
