Womens Wear

Since the 1980s, more and more women have begun flocking to the gym. In the early days, it seemed as if women were wary of "looking like men" and overemphasized their femininity in their dress instead of focusing on the fact that they were athletes working out. This may (or may not) explain the popularity of the thong that scores of women wore to the gym.

In case you missed it, the thong was (and is) a one-piece leotard cut extremely high on the hips with a thin strip of cloth wedged uncomfortably between the buttocks. In gym parlance it was known as "butt floss." While many women looked downright sexy in the thing, it had to be one of the cruelest fashion hoaxes this side of platform shoes, since essentially you were walking around with a self-imposed wedgie.

Luckily, these days the thong is mostly a collector's item packed neatly beside your collection of Jane Fonda's Greatest Aerobic Hits. Today, most women who exercise regularly wear a sports bra or T-shirt with sweats, leggings, or shorts.

Leggings often become nearly transparent when stretched; if you wear them in the gym be sure to wear something underneath to protect your privacy.

If you do go the sports bra route and are amply endowed, make sure you can jog and/or take an aerobics class without doing yourself bodily harm. Similarly, causing a traffic accident might be good for your ego, but it could be bad for your conscience.
