freedom

Who amongst us isn't heading to the gym over the next few weeks to get rid of the flab and become fit and fab? Yet it would be wrong to allow exercise turn us into style disasters by wearing baggy tops and bottoms.

To avoid any irritation caused by heat and sweat, always get gym clothes in lightweight materials. And to make sure you look your curvy best, make sure any exercise garment incorporates flexible Lycra.

If you want to look your ultra best, always pack a sports bra. Or support vests are also ideal for sessions at the gym, allowing plenty of freedom

to move, as well as offering the

added support of a sports bra.

The biggest mistake you can make is to wear a cotton T-shirt for a workout instead of wearing a top designed to draw sweat away from the body and move it to the outer surface.

You may be shy and prefer to wear baggy clothes, yet remember, a flowing top won't keep you covered when you do downward dog in yoga class, and will only get in the way when lifting weights.

Getting to and from the gym can also present a style challenge.

Hooded tops are great when it's raining and you need to make a mad dash from your car to the sports centre.

Short sleeved gilets are better suited to milder evenings and can serve as a practical way of keeping your body temperature up before and after a workout.
