I love all of these ideas!!! Since I am still a bigger girl, I want Zumba clothes, but the official Zumba wear are still a little tight. So these ideas help me with being Zumba trendy, but comfortably!!!
The only thing standing in the way of ur success is U!!
Zumba in anything without tassles is just wrong! LOL I personally LOVE the Zumba cargos, but I wear a bra top with them and it looks super trendy. Or I have bought some burnout tank tops from Ardene (for $5 each, I might add) that really add a similar flair to the pants, of course I only wear bra tops from Lululemon... GOOD support for "big girls" is important in my Zumba classes! (I'm talking about my BIG 'C' GIRLS! LOL)
You can cut almost any t-shirt and make a super sexy Customized Zumba shirt. There are 2 Customizing/Cutting groups on Facebook that include great pics of lots of customized and cut clothing for Zumba, on and off the studio floor! :)
Look forward to seeing your creations in class :)

You can score big on the clearance racks at the end of each season. I just got several pairs of cargo pants (which can be turned into either capris or long shorts) for under $10 at Walmart. They're super-cute and people keep asking where I got them! :)
I've only been doing zumba for a few weeks but I usually wear a pair of yoga style pants-i get them at walmart i like the loose bottom ones. I wear a good sports bra for high impact with a bra type closure- Champion is a good one better than some more expensive ones. I usually wear a sports style racer back tank and either another tank or wicking type tshirt ontop. I wear layers and then remove as I go. I don't spend a huge amount because I think i am hard on my work out clothes and like the opportunity to update with a few items regularly- walmart and target let me do that guilt free. I don't usually have a problem with them the C9 brand staying in place. I have a friend that will only wear capri length pants narrow leg during zumba-but I can stand that length on my leg.

For the hot weather, I wear capri workout pants or shorts. In the cooler weather, I like long dance pants. You can get these type of things at Kohl's (FILA brand), Target, Old Navy, Macy's, Annie Sez. I wear a good workout bra and tank tops that are either racer back or regular camisoles. You can get these at Wet Seal and Forever 21. On top of that I wear a t-shirt or long sleeve t shirt in the cold weather which always comes off after the warm up. Some of the racerbacks and tanks that Zumba sells are very nicely made and comfortable. I don't love the cargo pants, they pull. I am an instructor since the end of january. I love Zumba.

WW gave me the tools and Zumba gave me the motivation and confidence to keep going. I'm happy with who I am now.
Hi everyone! I'm having a dilemma finding clothes for Zumba and hope somebody can help. I tried the Zumba cargo/samba pants from Zumba.com, as well as similar type pants offered by a couple of the dancewear companies. Unfortunately, none of them were flattering or comfortable on me (I tried a variety of sizes, but nothing stayed in place even to walk across my living room - I can't imagine how bad they would be in an actual class!) So all of them got sent back. I'm currently wearing some Nike capris and Champion racerback tanks from Target. They are ok, but I'm still often adjusting my tops because they feel too short, and they are just not that cute.
Is there anything out there that both performs well and looks cute? I'm going to take the training to be a Zumba instructor soon, so looking good while working out is important to me. Thanks!
