Women's Activewear & Workout Clothes

    Finding activewear is easy when you know where to look. Whether you need workout clothes for women or plus size activewear, Macy's has it all. We'll explain how to build the perfect active wardrobe below. 

    Start with Basics

    If you're creating a gym wardrobe from scratch, start with athletic wear that can do it all. A couple of workout shirts and a few pairs of all-purpose gym bottoms make a solid foundation. 

    Try workout leggings and pants designed for cross-training that you can wear for any exercise. Pick styles with compression for added support. You'll appreciate how a pair of compression leggings hold you in alignment during tough HIIT intervals or that final mile on the treadmill.  

    Do you exercise outside? You'll want sun-protective athletic wear for women. Used in tandem with sunscreen, it helps shield skin from UV rays.

    Better Bust Support

    The right sports bra is crucial. If you can only buy one, choose a medium-to-high support sports bra since it works for most activities. However, some high-impact workouts (cardio dance, running) require even more support.

    Whatever the workout, your sports bra should fit snugly underneath your gym clothes to minimize bounce.

    Hack for Rising Body Temps

    Workouts get sweaty fast, so moisture-wicking clothes are a necessity. A moisture-wicking top, in particular, can help you feel cooler. 

    Swap out leggings for workout shorts (when possible) since they cover less skin. Women's workout clothes with cutouts and mesh panels also increase airflow.  

    Complete the Circuit

    Round out your workout wardrobe with the right pair of gym shoes. Check out Finish Line shoes at Macy's for performance sneakers in every style and color. Don't forget a gym bag for toting your new stuff.
