Women's Athletic Apparel

Women participate in competitive events as often as men do. Choosing appropriate women’s sportswear is important not just so women look good but also to enhance their performance on the track, court, or field. Whether you’re choosing a running jacket, a hoodie, a scuba tank top, a pair of leggings, or a fleece sweatshirt, take the time to choose items that fit the activity and make you feel good about yourself.

What is athletic wear?

Also known as activewear, it's a term used to describe a distinctive style of clothing used for specific sporting events.

Athletic-based wear is made with technology designed to keep the athlete cool in hot weather, warm in cold weather, and as sweat-free as possible. The active athlete can find many types of fitness sportswear.

  • T-shirts & tanks
  • Ski suits

What type of athletic clothes are available?

The great news for women is that there are so many colours and styles of athlete's clothing from which to choose. Gone are the days where athletes had to wear one tracksuit or women only had one pair of sweatpants for all their outdoor activities. There are clothing items for every activity, including sports bras and tanks for volleyball, basketball shirts, Speedo swimwear, outdoor pullover tops, or compression pants.

  • Outerwear: parkas and hoodies
  • Tops: workout tanks, tees, and crew neck pullovers
  • Bottoms: compression shorts, tennis skirts, fleece pants, and nylon joggers
  • Accessories: socks, tights, and sports bras
Are fit and fabric important when buying athletic wear?

Fit and fabric are very important when purchasing athletic-based clothes. For instance, Under Armour hoodies use a durable, stretchy, and moisture-wicking material that keeps your body comfortable, unlike cotton, which tends to absorb sweat. Getting the correct fit for your clothing is extremely important for not just appearance but performance as well. With the active lifestyle women have, they also want durable items they can utilize in as many activities as possible.
