Fitness Clothes to Suit Your Body Shape

Whether you’re hitting the gym or darting about town in your workout clothes, we know you want to look great and feel body confident. With that in mind, we’ve shared some of our top tips and picks from the Every Second Counts Collection to help you find the right fitness fashion to flatter your bodyshape.


Pear shape

This is one of the UK’s most common body shapes. If you’re a pear shape, you’re petite on top and curvier around the hip and lower body area. When choosing fitness clothes, you should go for a light, bright top that emphasises your upper body, such as our Epoch Crop. Pair with darker bottoms and nothing too heavily patterned – high-waisted styles are a must. Our Epoch Legging are the perfect choice.


Rectangle shape

If you have a rectangle body shape, you will want to create the illusion of curves with clever pops of colour and texture. You should wear pieces that have flashes of colour at the hips and chest and a low neckline. Our Strike T-Shirt features strategically placed graphic lines that will give shape to your torso. Team with our Speed Legging that have a flash of reflective down the side of the leg.


Apple shape

If you’re an apple shape, you have fantastic legs and arms with a  curvier mid-section. Loose-fitting tops that won’t ride up and in plain colours work best. On your bottom half, show off those pins with tight fitting capris but avoid flared joggers as they have a tendency to make you look bulky. Our Strike T-Shirt in white would look great when teamed with our blue Strike Legging.


Hourglass shape

The envy of women everywhere, you’re curvy at the chest and hips and have a petite, nipped-in waist – lucky you! Aim to accentuate your fabulous curves with a low, scooped neck line and draw attention to your waist area with detail at your mid-section. Go for tight-fitting tops to compliment your shape as loose fitting tops can bulk you out. Our Strike Crop and Legging co-ord will show off your enviable feminine shape.
