I have plenty since they're the clothes I use to work around the house, go to town,run errands etc. In fact, the only kind I may spend $$ is the coolmax, self-wicking materials.

I'm with NSTARSMITH. I prefer to wear something loose and comfortable that doesn't bind. UGH! The price is better too.

For now I have plenty. Unless I see a REALLY great bargain, I'm good until something wears out.

I have bought work out clothes in the past. I do find them expensive, so I always try to buy them on sale. What prevents me from buying more though is that I seem to outgrow them before they wear out. I'll wear the ones I have till they wear out before I buy new ones. :)

I chose STYLE but my problem falls between STYLE and SIZE. Workout clothes always seem to have an athletic cut, but I have a classic hourglass figure so the pants never fit! I want compression pants to support my maternal "badge of pride"--the loose skin gained from two pregnancies. Anything that fits my hips is an epic fail on supporting my stomach.

I do buy the clothes and equipment that I actually need. Style means nothing to me but not getting blisters and temperature maintenance mean a lot.

I don't use workout clothes. I haven't established a workout routine, so that I need anything like that. My exercise consists of a light walk, and regular clothes will do

I don't need any new workout clothes at this time.

It's hard to find clothes that fit right-I'm short and overweight and over 60 plus the cute things are too skimpy. I also don't like throwing away what I do have just to buy new.

I will buy clothes as I wear out my existing clothes. I lack drawer and closet space!

I will buy more workout clothes once I get to a better weight.

I work out at home, so wear comfortable clothes - old yoga pants and a tee shirt usually. Perhaps new clothes would be a motivation, but I'm a senior on a low income, and they just aren't a priority for me.

Since I exercise at home it would be a waste of money as far as I am concerned.

I prefer to wear comfy ordinary clothes.
