While there's not any specific Pilates clothing, this is an activity that requires you to move freely into a whole range of positions, so comfort should be your number one consideration when choosing what to wear.
To find Pilates clothing that will allow you to relax and focus on your workout, you should look for items that are:
Made from soft, comfortable materials
- No zips and buckles to dig into you
- Flat seams
Checking the web is a good way to find Pilates clothing - there are many websites that offer a range of comfortable shorts, trousers and leggings, T-shirts, sleeveless shirts, and vests, all of which will permit unrestricted movement.
Look for soft fabrics, typically either cotton, or a cotton/nylon mix. Many manufacturers also allow you to feel good about your purchases by offering items made from organic cotton, hemp, or fair trade goods.
A quick look at the products available shows that in addition to black and white, neutral, earthy tones or soft colours are popular for women, some with colourful prints or appliqu?s. Brand names include Asquith, Doce Vida, Pilates Suit, plus popular yoga brands like Prana, whose range is also ideal.
