Women Shouldn't Feel Ashamed to Exercise in Sports Bra

This Woman Is Posing in a Sports Bra For a Very Important Reason

It's not uncommon for women to feel nervous about wearing tight leggings or showing a little skin when working out because they haven't yet reached their weight-loss or fitness goals. But to feel self-conscious because someone might think you're showing off your body, well, screw that!

Louise posted these side-by-side selfies after seeing a fellow woman at the gym getting super sweaty in a long-sleeved shirt. In the locker room, she noticed the woman had a sports bra underneath and asked her, "Why did you keep your top on while you were training? It was so hot in the room!" The woman's response was, "I do not feel comfortable wearing a sport bra at the gym since a guy told me I wanted to show off my body."

Louise questioned that, saying, "So guys can train shirtless but women would not have the right to work out in a sports bra? HELL YES YOU CAN GIRL. Do not let anyone tell you how you should behave."

We completely agree. Wear what makes you feel comfortable, whether it's loose shorts, booty shorts, a tank top, just a sports bra, or a clown suit. Don't worry about what other people think of your gym attire, because you are there to get sh*t done, and what you're wearing really isn't your concern. Be proud of your body, and if you want to show off all your hard work, you should!
