 One of the most popular questions when it comes to choosing clothing for sports is whether to go for tight or loose clothes. Women’s sports clothes are generally made to be tight, this makes women’s bodies feel more compact, fit, and it certainly does a great job at highlighting the beautiful shape of the body. Tight sports clothing mostly contains polyester and spandex material, it’s a great combination to provide comfort and elasticity. For example we can find bike shorts, yoga pants, and leggings.
 However if you are jogging or running a marathon we recommend you to wear loose sport clothes, it allows your skin to breathe and make your body feel free. Loose clothes also prevent your skin from irritation due to much pressure in certain body areas, moreover if you’ve suffered physical trauma in the past. Loose sport clothing mostly contains 100% polyester features with moisture wicking properties.
 Choosing Tight or Loose sport clothes is based on your needs and situation. Wisely wear the clothes that fit in your body; clothes that are too tight could lead to discomfort when you’re doing exercise and potentially cause injury, while clothes that are too loose, could potentially make you trip or fall.
