I hear ya. Athletic wear, in particular athletic bras, seem to be a problem for me to find. I'm very short, but pretty wide, and even when I'm slim I have fit issues in all types of clothes.
Fact is, at least for athletic wear, I've given up on "cute" and just go for "fits". Even if it's in a color I hate or a style that I can't stand. For instance, I hate capris, but non-capris are always too long. I hate pink, but if that's what's left in a size that fits, that's what I buy.
Athletic wear IS supposed to fit tightly, though. If it's too loose, it can chafe at the skin and that plus sweat can hurt a LOT. I'm wincing just thinking about it. If you don't feel comfortable exposing your shape (I know I don't), you can wear something looser over it (like a t-shirt over an athletic bra, or a looser pair of shorts over the athletic bottoms).
It is frustrating, but I try to stay focused on the goal of health rather than being self-conscious. And I change out of my workout gear into something cuter as fast as I can after I'm done!
