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.
4. Look for loose-fitting, figure-flattering tops if you are self-conscious about your upper body.
5. To make purchases last: avoid putting stretchy items in the dryer or exposing them to excess heat.
