Ever heard the phase – “Dress for success?” Well the same can be said about your sportswear. Simply put the clothes you chose have a direct impact on your performance.
Sounds a little contradictory? If you are going to be all hot and sweaty why not just slip into your most comfortable tee and worn out shorts? Why shell out money on sportwear and athletic gear?
Keep reading for 5 reasons backed by science and studies to invest in quality sportswear. At amanté we aspire to provide nothing but the best in quality and design. Our range of sportswear caters to any and all activities.
No. 1 The Right Support
No sportswear collection is complete without the right support provided by a sports bra. Sports bras are designed to handle movement and motion so that when you move, they will provide maximum support and hold your breasts firmly in place.
Wearing a sports bra also helps counteract premature sagging.

No. 2 The Right Sportswear boosts confidence
The right clothing will boost your confidence if you believe it will help you perform better.
Studies in the field of cognition have shown the positive impact of wearing the right clothes for your workplace. Termed ‘enclothed cognition,’ this phenomenon extends to sports and fitness too.
If you know you look great – chances are you will act it out too. When you have the right tools – well fitted workout clothes that offer support in the right areas – you’re going to feel more confident. This confidence translates into better performance.
By this we don’t mean to say that wearing the right gear gives you super human abilities. However, ladies we hope you will be motivated to run that extra mile, add on that extra Kilo and do those extra squats.
No. 3 Sweat wicking ability
Cotton absorbs sweat and retains moisture leaving you feeling wet and heavy. Choose workout clothing that wicks perspiration away from your body.
Wicking is the ability to divert sweat from your skin and evaporate through the fabric’s surface. These will leave you feeling fresh, dry and comfortable during and post-workout.
A top that is made of non-breathable material is going to stop the release of heat from your body. This results in excessive heating and discomfort that cuts short your exercise time. In our tropical climates wearing the right sportswear stops our bodies from overheating. It’s not that uncommon to suffer from a heat stroke this close to the equator.
No. 4 Improves Freedom of Movement
Focusing on movement is important especially when performing compound exercises. You might end up doing it wrong if your clothing is restrictive or doesn’t offer the right support.
Making sure your active wear fits you well will prevent skin irritation or painful chafing and allow freedom of movement. Loose clothing may catch on equipment, overly tight ones may restrict your range of motion.
So, if they fit you like a glove, allows you unrestricted movement, makes you feel confident and not self-conscious, then bravo, you’ve got your workout gear ready!
No.5 Improves blood circulation and recovery
While you go all out on that high intensity exercise schedule your blood pumps oxygen to your muscles, lactic acid builds up as a by-product. This often causes pain, fatigue and cramping. Thanks to specialised sportswear compression clothing, blood flow is stimulated and reduces the buildup of lactic-acid.
These garments do more than hug you in the right places Sports apparel also provides extra support to muscles and joints and is said to reduce micro damage to the muscles and help prevent or alleviate injuries associated with sudden, uncontrolled movements that occur during exercise.
In design there are two types of compression used; ‘graduated compression’, which are tighter in the extremities to help increase blood flow back to your core when you exercise and ‘compartmental compression’ which is tighter in certain areas, usually better suited for specific sports.
In short, sportswear is an essential investment. The time spent researching and developing each element of sportswear be it the fabrics, the fit and shape, the design and its versatility is evident in each product. Shop our all new collection now! Online Shopping now available.
