The clothing you wear for exercise should be specifically for that exercise. It should be comfortable and not too tight or binding at the joints. Though appearance is important to everyone, comfort in exercise is more important than looks. Clothing should not restrict movement in any way. Preferably, the clothing that comes in direct contact with the body should be porous to allow for sweat evaporation.
Some fabrics, example, Gortex, allow heat loss and sweat evaporation while protecting against wind and rain. Some women, especially those who need extra support, should consider using an exercise bra, and men may benefit from an athletic supporter. A warm-up suit over other exercise apparel is recommended because it can be removed during exercise if desired. Some exercise apparel marketed to promote weight loss resulting from increased sweating can be dangerous. Suits that are nonporous and trap sweat inside preventing the cooling effect that results from the normal evaporation of sweat should not be worn.
