I bought some black lycra capri pants and a v-neck workout shirt on the clearance rack at Target. I love how dry it keeps me, even when I'm gross and sweaty! I just want to know what type of shoes everyone wears. I have some K-Swiss tubes I bought a couple of years ago. There is quite a bit of bouncing, so I'm wondering if I should go for something that absorbs the shock more.
i did finally get new pants!! what a relief to not look like i wet myself every day! lol. i ended up finding some pants at kohls that i LOVE. they're a tek shapewear capri. love them. LOVE. tinyurl.com/7v542nc
Hey Everyone! I definitely recommend looking for capris or pants that AREN'T cotton based so it doesn't show your sweat. As an instructor, there is nothing more embarrassing than stretching with your legs wide open to the class and lookin like you peed yourself! :) I try to stick with black lycra with a little cotton for a nice little give when im feeling a little bloated. Try looking at KOS-USA.com. they always have sales and 9 times out of 10 have the same stuff thats on the Jazzercise website for cheaper!
Just take it one day at a time. You'll get there.

I started Jazzercise in July of this year so it's been capris but now that it's getting cooler, I've got my eye out for some lightweight longer ones that are just as comfy, haven't found them yet though =( As far as tops go, I love Old Navy's "perfect" tees, just the basic lightweight t-shirt that often goes on sale for $3!!

I have a large collection of Jazzercise shirts from my 30 years of Jazzercise, so I usually wear a pair of either tights or long pants with my Jazzercise shirt. For Halloween, I'm dressing as a bat with a bat headband and black shirt and tights.

I also like the capri pants or yoga pants the best. I used to wear regular t-shirts but now go with the lighter fabrics as well otherwise I feel weighted down. It didn't used to be a problem for me until a friend gave me some of her light-weight cast offs....they are so comfortable. They look just like regular t-shirts.
I'll wear a long sleeve shirt over my short sleeve shirt in winter and even spring because I find I'm cold to start with but after one or two songs, the long sleeve top comes off. I've never really been comfortable with no sleeve or cami style shirts. I was looking at the Jazzertogs online catalog last night and they have some cute stuff on sale but the stuff in my size was cami or no-sleeves so I didn't get anything.
I buy most of my stuff at Marshall's or a similar discount store to save money. I also invested a little more in good socks and bras this year and can really feel the difference.

I'm not terribly fashionable either. I once got down to about 145 and bought some cute tighter sleeveless exercise tops and then had to revert to what I was wearing before because of the underarm rub and the fact that the shirts kept rolling up over my waist (not attractive!).
I'm not what you call "fashion savvy" so I look at what other women my size are wearing to class. Most wear some sort of capri pant and short sleeved or sleeveless workout top. I do not like sleeveless tops because my arm chafes against my ribs when I get sweaty (tmi?) Honestly, the only ones wearing those fashionable Jazzer-togs are the instructors (ha!) I'd look like an overstuffed sausage in those clothes!
When I first started Jazzercise last September, I was pretty embarrassed about how out of shape I was and only wore oversized T-shirts and sweatpants. Eventually I dumped the sweatpants in favor of yoga pants. Now that I've lost some weight I'm more concerned about whether my outfit is comfortable (and easy) to move in than hiding my excess weight.
But there are so many options out there. What kinds of clothing work well for you?
