with my increasing mileage, i have to take into consideration what i'm wearing. i used to be able to get away with a bathing suit top, any tank top/athletic short, and whatever socks i could find for short walks or jogs. now that i'm actually running, i need supportive sports bras, moisture-wicking clothing, and thicker socks for my current shoes.
i am usually dripping with sweat after my 5-mile night runs...i can't imagine what i'll look like after 10+ miles in the sun. one of my fears is having unsightly sweat stains, because after 26 marathon miles, you can bet i will be sweating evvvrywhere!
i was excited to try a few items from Fabletics. in general, their items run big, so check the size charts and read the reviews for recommendations to size down. i wasn't able to wear the Ayni Sports Bra because it was way too big, but i initially chose it for it's cute racerback style and bright yellow color.
the Oula Tank in XS fit perfectly. i prefer my tops to be loose-fitting, and this one had a nice stretch that was fitted but not tight. the material isn't what i'd normally expect for an exercise top. this one was similar to that of a seamless camisole - very static-y, clingy, and just felt "warm". while i prefer more of a silky material, i wore this for a 3-mile walk on a hot day and it was definitely comfortable. i will see how it handles sweat on my next run. the Oula Tank is on the longer side.
the Suva Run Short is my absolute favorite so far. it's comfortable, extremely lightweight, and handles sweat well. i could have sized down for a better fit, but by folding the waist over once, it is wearable...and i wear them as often as they are clean! one issue i had with them is that the inseam was a little long, and it would sometimes irritate my legs when i ran. Fabletics recently introduced their Suva Run Short II which has a shorter inseam and spandex added to the material blend for a little stretch. i look forward to trying them.

mini-she and i ended up having some time to kill, so we walked to get a bite to eat and then kept on walking for three miles! it was the first time my new balance 890v4s got off the treadmill and hit the pavement.
do you have a go-to brand for your workout clothes?
have you tried Fabletics? if so, what's your favorite item?
