What to Wear to Pure Barre

Tomorrow morning, I have the pleasure of attending a complimentary Pure Barre class hosted by lovely ladies of Poplin & Queen. The winners of their giveaway will also be in attendance and, for some of these girls, it will be their first barre class ever. If they're wondering what I was wondering before I went the first time, then we need to talk about what to wear! 

As you'd expect, you wear standard gym clothes except PB requires that you do wear pants to keep your muscles warm throughout class. I also did not know that socks were required, although you do not wear shoes. Thank goodness my pal in Raleigh who had attended a barre class gave me that heads up. Your socks do not have to be Pure Barre socks, the non-slip, grippy kind, but they sure do make a difference. And don't think for one second that your won't sweat. You will. A lot. Make sure your tops are a moisture-wicking or breathable material. 

All that being said, here are my favorite, most flexible barre outfits in case you are considering your first barre class...

Lululemon's activewear happens to be some of the best I've ever owned. I haven't been let down yet by one of their pieces. The tank above is great as it has a tight, midlength fit that allows you to move without slipping or gapping. It also comes with a built-in bra so don't worry if you haven't had a laundry day to clean your sports bras yet! The Lululemon tee is a great, more covered alternative. It is long enough to hide your booty in tight pants. Score! Of course, it's chilly outside so you might want another layer during warm-up. And while the PB grippy socks are more than the usual pair of socks, they are worth'll find out when you slip and slide in plank...

Hope these tips help you in your quest for fitness! Off to take an Advil in expectation of tomorrow's burn!
