Even Women’s Sportswear Is Overly Sexualized
A pair of sweats and a hoodie are what you’ll find me wearing if I’m not working or blogging. It doesn’t get easier than that right? The answer is NO! In order for me to wear comfortable sportswear that fit me right, I’m forced to shop in the men’s section. Today most women’s only option is overly sexualized sportswear.
Women’s clothing is hypersexualized. I get it, there are new trends and looks that we want to keep up with. But when it comes to sportswear that’s where I don’t get it. Why do our options consist of leggings, booty tight shorts, sheer leggings, or Adidas crop tops? And if we choose to opt out of those options, we only have one style of regular sweats or hoodies. Not only do we have one option of clothing, but the quality of the products is worse than the men’s sportswear.
The hypersexualization of women’s sportswear is an issue many other women struggle with. When you step into the men’s section you won’t find sheer leggings, crop tops, or booty shorts for them to work out in. There’s a constant pressure on women to look sexy all the time, even at the gym. The latest brand ambassadors for Nike and Adidas are supermodels Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid. No disrespect towards them, but we need real women (who aren’t supermodels) as the face of these brands. Women who don’t remind us that we have to always look sexy.
It’s about time women got their equal rights in sportswear!
Shoe Palace is the place to go to if you want decent sweats and hoodies that fit right. They have a variety of options and the latest trends in sportswear. As I mentioned earlier I got these from the men’s section. I got my sweats from Macy’s and my hat and shoes from Footlocker. So ladies get out there and raid the men’s section with your wallets!
