What To Wear To Zumba

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

Before I was sick last week, I took a Zumba class. It was interesting in a good way. I wanted to try it again. Then I was sick and missed the next class. If I'm going to do this again, I need to figure out a different outfit. The big baggy t-shirt and the loose yoga pants did nothing for my self-esteem. I also learned that having the correct footwear for Zumba is key. Sneakers don't cut it because of the traction on the sole. I did my first class in sneakers and the next day my feet were screaming! I went to a dance store and bought dance sneakers for $10. I have a big foot (10.5) and my size was on the clearance table:)

Back to the clothes: I'm not ready for the sporty tight tank tops. I very busty (36G) and even when I'm smaller, I probably never fit into any of those tops. I would like to find a light cargo pant and a fitted shirt I can move around in that doesn't show my stomach when I lift my arms. Any suggestions as to where to find something like this?

Places I've already checked:

Lulu Lemon
Official Zumba Site
Dance Discount
Sports Authority

Perhaps I'm being overly picky, but I'm just not ready to bear it all yet. What do you wear?
I look forward to seeing your responses.

    Hi Cammie,
    I wore strechy sports pants, long ones and a few times I wore a long t-shirt and then another time I wore a short sleeve shirt which was a jersey knit. I would have liked a V neck because once you get going you get hot. Almost everyone in our class just wore a Tshirt. I got my pants at a store similar to Target or K-mart. Yeah I had to get new shoes that will pivot, it hurt my knee's until I got those. Hope you enjoy Zumba. I have stopped until my therapy get's my knee's stronger.

    I like Athleta and Title Nine for athletic sporty clothes.


    Hope that helps! And congrats on your weight loss!
