No Sweat Workout Clothes

Sweating is good when you exercise, but with the right fabrics and fit, you can keep your cool and get a great burn at the same time.

The Best Fabrics

Check the labels when you buy and look for the word "WICKING" and "BREATHE". Synthetic fabrics that breathe and "wick" the sweat away from your skin can help it to evaporate and keep you cool. Look for Powermax(r) and Coolmax(r) fabrics on the label for extra sweat wicking protection. Stay away from Tencel, plastic-based polyesters and cotton. Tencel and polyester don't breathe so they trap moisture and make you hotter. Cotton absorbs sweat, making you feel and look wet.

For Running or Biking

Wear shorts or tight-fitting leggings and avoid flapping wide legs and sleeves that could get in the way as you exercise.


For Yoga or Dance Class

Wear stretchy, fitted fabrics, like this tank from Lucy and yoga pants made with Powermax@, a breathable fabric.  ivivva athletica , a member of the lululemon athletica family that focuses on apparel for active girls, features a 4-way stretchy luon®, anti-stink silverescent™ and the made-for-gymnastics, foam-resistant power luxtreme™.

For Team Sports and Racquet Sports

Loose, comfortable clothing that lets you move freely in your clothes for game-winning performance. Nike is the king of sport clothing, and they feature clothes for all ages, shapes and sizes with Dri-FIT fabric and a comfortable fit. SweatyBetty is another company to check out. Their prices are higher, but they focus specifically on sweat protection and style. Many of the clothes are made with SweatTech Light, which is a sturdy, lightweight, moisture wicking fabric. 



Foot Protection

Sweaty feet don't just stink, they are unhealthy! Wet feet can lead to foot fungus, chafing, scaly feet and blisters. Protect your feet with a good pair of workout socks. Thorlo makes three heights of socks -- crew, mini-crew and micro mini-crew (shown here) -- with Coolmax(r) construction to wick moisture away and cool off feet. Cushoining in the toe and heal offer blister protection. Workout socks cost more than regular socks, but for a good sweaty workout, you'll need 'em!

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
