Does everyone go in little vests and shorts?
i bought some long sports pants with mesh inside and a normal short sleeved t shirt - would this be okay?

not quite sure what is the correct gym attire these days - i'm glad it isnt leotards, tights and headbands though! i know that much ;)

I don't think there is such a thing as 'correct' gymwear. Just wear what you feel comfortable with. I think the only items that you can get 'wrong' are bra and trainers, and that's a question of function, not fashion. Sometimes I wear a t-shirt and slouchy jogging bottoms and sometimes I wear a vest top. People at my gym wear all sorts of things and so far I have avoided the fashion police :)

I wear some black velour pants which seem to suck in my tummy and cling to the right places, and a black t-shirt with a sparkly silver heart on the front. I don't like the tops of my arms and wouldn't fancy baring them in a strappy top.

I don't go to the gym :eek: but if I did I'd opt for the shorts. I hate the feeling of sweat under clothes :rolleyes:. But you need to be careful with hairy legs :p

that was my reason for getting a normal short sleeved t shirt. i know a vest would be more practical but i dont think showing off my wobbly bits is going to mke me feel less conspicious.
Tell you something gym clothes arent cheap though. Spent a bomb kitting us out and we had to go to proper sports shops as there wasnt aywhere with anything cheap and suitable. still, it's an investment I suppose!

I myself would wear the headband, I look rather fashionable in one and it helps absorb the sweat! True story, flower knows a thing or two, I just use a bandana and wrap it and twist it and tie it, oh so sexy and sheek!

I bought some navy blue 'yoga' pants apparently... well that's what it said on the till receipt....lol..... they are like a stretch cottom long slight boot leg style trousers and then I bought a mans XXL tshirt from Asda for £3 which was tight... oh the shame....:eek: oh and I dug out my old nike trainers that are about 10 years old.... as anyone who knows me knows I am SO NOT a trainers and joggers girl.... give me heels and jeans anyway - even for shopping....lol;)

mine are navy too, with cords round the ankles, tbh they were the 2nd cheapest kind i could get, i thought the cheapest they had looked a bit too leg hugging for my likeing.
i've got some really comfy grey ones already that would be perfect but grey marl shows the sweat up! Just a little tip!

flower i could wear my stud belt?, maybe that'll catch on ....:rolleyes:

Funny you should mention grey joggers - with my bezzie mate today and she was on about an exercise class she went to last night - she goes to a 'posh' gym.... well it was like an exercise class on baby trampolines.... anyway, she said everytime she bounced a little bit of wee came out.....:eek::eek: (not normally a problem for her apparently) - she said she was mortified as she had grey joggers on...:eek: She loved the class but said next time she will be wearing black joggers and a tena lady .......:rotflmao::rotflmao:

And you thought us americans do the crazy stuff, I beg to differ!!!
Your capri pants sound way coolio, I just bought myself a pair of black ones with white all over them and drawstrings at the calves, just ordered myself a black pair of shorts with the drawstrings too, very FASHIONABLE.
STud belt, this isn't a hoochie gym is it?

Jogging bottoms and t-shirts ==== anything you feel comfy in. I also avoid the vest types but that's cos I don't like my arms.

Not gone for the sweatbands and leg warmers yet but hey there's still time ;)
