Activewear bodysuits inspired by acrobats
Bodysuits and leotards originated in the second half of the 19th century as a staple garment for gymnasts and acrobats. They gained popularity as athletic wear during the 80s fitness revival and were worn by Jane Fonda in her iconic exercise videos. This retro activewear piece has been experiencing a revival at the gym in recent years, inspired by celebrity style and its flattering, functional design. The sleek and supportive material keeps you fully covered during yoga class or when you’re performing deadlifts and bent-over rows.
What are the benefits of working out in a bodysuit?
Boasting a minimalist athletic design, adidas bodysuits are constructed from ultra-stretchy cotton, polyester and elastane that allow you to move comfortably. The sweat-wicking fabric, ventilating mesh panels and anti-odour technology keep you cool and dry when you’re focusing on your form. Snap-button crotch closures and hidden back zips let you take it off quickly. adidas bodysuits are available in a range of different designs, including spaghetti straps, short sleeves and long sleeves. Knee-length sleeveless styles are built for power lifting and cycling suits have integrated UV protection for long outdoor rides. The fitted silhouette is suitable for all kinds of workouts, including barre, yoga, Pilates and weight training. No matter how you twist and turn, bodysuits offer total coverage, so you never need to worry about pulling down your shirt again. Wear them with leggings to yoga or pair them with sweat pants and move your body at a dance class. For extra coverage during weight training, throw on a pair of adidas shorts and a crop top. Bodysuits can also easily transition to streetwear thanks to their clean design. Much more comfortable than shapewear, seamless styles can effortlessly smooth out your figure. To transform your fitness bodysuit into an on-trend statement piece for the weekend, pair it with high-waisted jeans and a bomber jacket.
