With an abundance of female activewear on the market, it can be difficult investing in the right apparel for your fitness goals.

To help you guys out we spoke to the experts at RUMI X (featured on the Huffington Post & CNBC) to shed light on what to look out for when choosing the right kind of activewear.


Q1. Why is it important to invest in a set of good quality activewear?

RUMI X: We believe in investing in the right garments that so that you don’t need to constantly face the problem of constantly having to dispose of your fashion. High quality activewear would not only mean that the items will wash well but that they would also be comfort wear that looks good!

This means you can not only wear your outfit outside of the gym but also during your workout. Furthermore the right fit means that your leggings won’t ride down and your bust will feel secure and comfortable for both low and high impact sports. On the flip side, poor quality activewear will not offer the same support nor style and is unlikely to last after multiple washes!

Q2. What are the things to look out for when buying good quality activewear?

RUMI X: When looking for quality activewear it is so important to always check for a smooth, soft and comfortable fit that does not pinch or feel loose in the wrong places. Good quality activewear should feel snug, fitted and breathable with a lot of stretch to ensure you have freedom of movement during your workouts. Flatlock stitching to avoid chafing and sweat-wicking is essential!

Q3. Tell us more about selecting the right sort of sports bra?

RUMI X: We recommend to choose the type of support depending on your bust size and the activity. Full supports bra will provide full coverage for a fuller bust – helping you feel comfortable and secure for high impact workouts.

Q4. What difference does a good pair of tights make?

RUMI X: A good pair of workout tights will feel soft, supportive and comfortable during low and high impact sports. Our customers have asked us for leggings with good coverage that won’t stretch or shrink. Our tight leggings are high waist with a nice and wide waistband so you will feel comfortable and supported!

The fabric feel needs to be soft and breathable so you feel empowered and not distracted by what you’re wearing. A good sports bra will give you a smooth shape while supporting your bust. The elastic should not dig in to your rib cage but should give you optimum support during movement.
