Did you know that some fabrics may do more harm than good? When it comes to workout clothes, it may seem like a very simple process of just putting something on and going to the gym. There are so many factors to keep in mind when it comes to choosing the right gym clothing that is suited for all your needs, like comfort, breathability, and sweat-wicking ability. 
The main reason why we started to write this article is because we really wanted to let you know about the best fabrics to wear to the gym. 
If you regularly do cardio or high intensive exercises, yoga, pilates or any other fitness activities, you might be interested too. 
There are some main qualities that we need from the gym clothes and the fabrics - breathability, stretch and of course, comfort. While shopping for new gym clothing, the type of material should be the most important factor to consider.

Let's take a look at some main considerations:

Comfort and Durability 

Cotton and some other organic natural fabrics are known as very comfortable and are highly recommended because they allow your skin to breathe naturally. Fabric should take in sweat and make you feel fresh while exercising. You need something soft and stretch resistance for full mobility while at the gym.


The weight of clothing for fitness exercises is extremely important. Every extra ounce you wear takes your energy that makes your performance and results lower than expected. 

Moisture Regulation 

Functional activewear should be breathable to sweat from the body to the outside of the material without any issues. If for some reason the fabric does not do this, anyone wearing that clothing will become too hot or too cold very quickly. This can cause an injury known as muscle strain. 

So, What Fabric Is The Best For Workout Clothes?

Couple years ago, among fitness industry experts, cotton was known as a material that did not absorb sweat and it was not a good option for gym outfits. However, nowadays, cotton workout clothing is experiencing a revival. It has excellent odor management compared to some other materials. Cotton is breathable, durable and allows your skin to breathe naturally. But still when it comes to sweat absorbing, cotton stays behind some modern and technologically advanced competitors. 


Spandex is another fabric used in gym clothing. It is popular in the fitness industry due to its stretchability, which makes spandex clothes very comfortable to wear during high intensity workouts. This fabric is also great to absorb sweat, breathe and it dries quickly. It is an excellent choice for cheap and durable material. 


Polyester is another type of material widely used in gym wear. It is made out of plastic fibers. Clothing made of polyester material is light-weight, long lasting, wrinkle-free, durable and stretchy. 
However, it is non-absorbent in nature, which means that this clothes would not absorb your sweat but the sweat would dry on the exterior of the material on its own. 


This fabric is known as stretchy, mildew resistant, breathable and quick-drying material. Nylon  allows cool air to reach your skin and also wicks sweat from the skin to the fabric`s surface-leaving you very comfortable. 

Bamboo Fiber 

If you are dreaming about soft moisture-wicking sportswear then choose bamboo fabric. It is a natural material, super light, soft, breathable and it is also stretcher than cotton. Bamboo fiber material provides protection from UV rays, so feel safe to wear it out in the sun. 


Activewear made out of synthetic fabric is breathable and also quickly absorbs sweat to keep you cool and comfortable during fitness performance. Chemical synthetic materials create non-renewable byproducts which are not fine for the environment. Also, synthetic clothes are not stretchy enough, so we recommend considering choosing another fabric for workout clothes. 


This is a hybrid material that is widely used to make outdoor activewear clothing like jackets, gloves, running shoes. It is waterproof and windproof, which is perfect for winter outdoor activities. It keeps water and wind outside- yet allowing the skin to breath during exercises outside.
