Staying fit is a necessity for everyone, and what's better than a good Pilates session! However, choosing the appropriate outfit can be quite challenging. All that exercise requires clothes that won’t pose a problem during Pilates.
A few things to keep in mind while choosing your Pilates clothing:
Comfort should be your top priority when it comes to Pilates. Looking good comes second to feeling absolutely okay in your second skin.
It's wise to avoid clothes with too many embellishments. This will include extra zips, too many chains, belts, straps or even ties. They can be a nuisance and hinder your movements.
Coming straight from the ladies, the deep neck shirts are not ideal. This is because Pilates involves a lot of stretching, upper-body exercises or exercises involving raising the upper body. For such instances, it's best to always go for round neck tops and tees.
Fancy footwear is a big no. The main emphasis should be on grip socks. Pilates socks or grip socks are indispensable when it comes to Pilates.
A Pilates class can never be complete without non-slip grip socks. The art of Pilates depends on the alignment of posture and balance. In fact, experts say that initially Pilates can turn out to be a little intimidating. To ensure that the balance is maintained and to maintain a grip on the exercises initially, Pilates grip socks are a must.
If you're still wondering why grip socks are so essential for Pilates, take a look at these points.
1. Pilates Socks vs Normal Socks
Exercises for Pilates require a good grip and proper balance. The feet are the major focus. Slips or injuries can be prevented by choosing Pilates grip socks over normal socks to cover the feet.
It's inevitable that your feet will sweat during Pilates, leading to odor, sore feet, etc. It's not very hygienic to keep your sweaty feet cramped in socks. At SOCK- IT & CO.™ we offer a wide range of Pilates grip socks to keep the feet airy, dry and comfortable.
Some of these grip socks even come in the form of Ballet Pilates Grip Socks. These socks are an absolute blessing if you want to maintain good hygiene in style.
Wearing normal socks for Pilates classes not only poses hygiene issues (due to sweaty feet), but also increases the risk of injuries due to poor grip. Our non-slip grip socks not only tackle all of these problems but also ensure that your feet don't go cold.
