Tips for buying workout-wear

Sarah Fit’s tips for making a workout-wear purchase:

1. Make sure the fabric has the ability to wick, or pull, sweat away from the body.


2. Buy high-waisted pants if you’re worried about your mid-section to avoid bumps and lumps.

3. Buy black for a slimming effect.
