Clothes For Pilates

By Angela Winter

Performing an exercise is much more convenient and comfortable if you are wearing the appropriate type of clothes. Wearing the right kinds of clothes when doing an exercise greatly affects the person’s ability to perform and do the exercise. Doing Pilates is also affected by the clothes you wear.

Compared to other kinds of exercises, Pilates is easier to do and perform because it does not require making of weights and other very heavy materials. Mind relaxation is one benefit that an individual can get in doing Pilates and choosing the right kinds of clothes to wear helps the individual to attain this benefit.

Below are some factors to be considered when picking up clothes to wear when performing Pilates:

-Wear something that is comfortable. Wearing something comfortable helps a person to focus more in doing the exercise. When you wear something that is uncomfortable it may hinder the individual to perform the exercise properly because he will become preoccupied with the discomfort that he is experiencing with his clothes.

-Choose to wear clothes that not only absorbs sweat but clothes that are also made up of fabric that pulls away sweat from the body and maximizes evaporation of your sweat. This kind of fabric also helps in avoiding retention of heat to the body and will help the person doing the exercise have some comfort in doing the exercise.

-Clothes of the right size and fit is always recommended to be worn during exercise for you to be able to do the exercise routines properly.

-Considering the weather condition when choosing clothes to wear when doing exercises is also important. Choose clothes that maximizes ventilation and lets your skin breath during hot weather. On the other hand, if the weather is cold, make sure to choose clothes that will protect you from cold weather and at the same time wear something to protect your head and ear especially in extremely cold weather condition.

-Choose to wear clothes that support your body properly when doing Pilates. Wearing clothes that will not support your body properly will hinder you in doing the exercise accurately. You will not be at ease performing an exercise while your breasts are swinging and bouncing uncontrollably. It is highly advisable to wear sports bra when doing any kind of exercise to make sure that your breasts will be in place.

-Wear clothes that are light and that hug the body. Same with any other exercise, Pilates exercise is composed of a lot of body movements, bending and stretching, hence, wearing light clothes will aid in you performing the exercise appropriately. Also wearing clothes that hug the body prevent parts of the clothes to flap and swing around while you are doing the exercise and may distract you during your exercise routine.

Aside from picking up the right kinds of clothes to wear when performing Pilates, there are also other things that needs to be remembered and that includes the mat to be used in order to properly do the exercise, water bottle to hydrate you when you have lost a lot of fluids already like in the form of sweat and the location where you will do the exercise. These things should also be planned properly aside from the clothes that you will wear in order to be able to do your Pilates exercise appropriately and with maximum effects.
