4 Key Features to Look for When Activewear Shopping

When it comes to living a happy and healthy lifestyle, you must make sure that your look matches your feel. After all, when you look good, you feel good too! An important part of living a healthy lifestyle is making sure you keep up your physical activity. This is where activewear comes in. And there is no better place to look than right here at KE’ALA Bikinis. That’s right, we’ve recently launched our new active line, and we could not be more excited to share it with you! Each of our pieces is fully designed to maximize comfort, function, and style all at the same time. We recognize, however, that there is a lot of activewear out there to choose from, so it can be hard to navigate or understand where to start. Continue reading for 4 key features to look for when activewear shopping. 

  1. Fabric

One of the first and most important features to look for when activewear shopping is fabric. Comfortable and functional fabric is vital since activewear is, after all, most often used at times when you want to be active! Choosing activewear with the right fabric can help you to avoid uncomfortable chafing and rashes that often result when fabrics are too rough or otherwise low quality. Sure, the whole no pain no gain mantra can be helpful to get you through a tough workout, but this doesn’t mean you should be dealing with unnecessary pain from your activewear! Every item in our KE’ALA Active line utilizes premium four-way stretch lycra that is breathable and sweat-wicking to help you perform at your best for every occasion and season.

  1. Support

One of the most practical features to look for when activewear shopping is support, and this is especially the case when shopping for activewear tops. Whether you are performing low-intensity exercise to high-intensity exercise or anything in between, ensuring that the girls are properly secured is an absolute must. You want to be able to focus wholeheartedly on whatever activities you are trying to do, rather than worrying about whether or not you have sufficient coverage and support. Check out our Everly Top, which has a built-in bra shelf to ensure adequate support for those of all shapes and sizes. Our Maddy Top even features a unique wide band for those looking to get a little extra support and lift.

  1. Seaming

One of the most underrated features to look for when activewear shopping is seam design. This is not always the first thing people will think of when it comes to design, but it can have significant implications for comfort and especially for style and look. For base of reference, the seams are visible lines where pieces of fabric are stitched together. Some clothing may have many seams, while other clothing may have only a few. It all depends on the style design, but the point is that seams can oftentimes either work wonders or be detrimental. When shopping for activewear leggings, for example, you may find center seams in the front, which can be extremely unflattering. Check out our Lennon Leggings, which offer a highly flattering look and functional fit. There is no front seam, which helps you avoid those pesky and less-than-ideal camel toes. They also come with a unique inseam design that creates a slimming and elongating effect!

  1. Style

Last but most certainly not least, you should know the style features to look for when activewear shopping. This facet most certainly comes secondary to the other features listed, like fabric and support. But its importance should not be understated. Sure, the main purpose of activewear should be for function when it comes to physical activity. However, this doesn’t mean you should have to sacrifice being fashionable for being functional! Think through what type of fit you are looking for, and search for a fit that might match your desire. If you are looking for a more sophisticated style, check out our Everly Top, which features a rounded square neck and soft rib texture. If you are looking for a more feminine style, check out our Paige Top. Consider color variations to mix up your style as well!

Now you have all you need in order to choose your activewear the right way. When in doubt, just remember these 4 key features to look for when activewear shopping.
