Work-out Gear from the Past That We Actually Kind of Miss!

When we use performance fabrics at the gym today, we love that they dry quickly and are quite practical. But, there are times when we do miss some of the more extraneous workout gear from decades past.

Leotards in general are less of a phenomenon these days, but you especially don’t see the suspender versions at all.

Cinch Belts

To go along with your leotard, a cinch belt really pulled the whole look together.
