I must admit. I’m a bit obsessive when it comes to shopping. On one hand, I really dislike going to the malls and fighting to breathe above the crowd, but on the other hand, when I find something I like, I need to buy the same piece in different colours or styles. There was once when I was shopping for work shoes and I bought the same pair in three different colours. Heck, it saved me from going shoe shopping for another year.
It’s the same with workout gear. I can’t just have one. I need to have a few pieces of the same top.
I have about eight pairs of trousers. Most of them are black and blue. They all go to the knee and they all look the same.
I have six of them. I don’t exercise six times a week and I don’t wear them without a shirt so I don’t know why I need so many of them and in different colours.
I have six sports tops. These are the ones that have the sports bras attached to them so you don’t need to wear a separate bra (which nullifies the need for me to have six of them in the first place – see above section).
The ones pictured here are from Lululemon, a Canadian yoga wear company that opened in Singapore quite recently. They are known for their loose yoga tops that don’t slip down. So when you twist around, you don’t expose your stomach fats. I decided that I needed to buy two even though they served virtually identical functions. Arghh.
What do you wear to work out?
