Love your shape.

Love your shape.

Looking and feeling good as you work out boosts your performance –  and it’s scientifically proven!

Never compromise on a good fit, comfort or style, encourages MGW founder Jenny Squires. ‘There’s nothing more distracting than hoiking your activewear up or down while smashing a HIIT class.’ The MGW mission is to help you find the perfect outfit that works with, not against, your body as you work hard. Here’s our roundup of our brands and latest collections best suited to your shape.


Flatter your neat proportions and emphasis your waist with soft fabrics that hug in all the right places, such as Climawear’s Perfection Tank, available in a host of tempting colours.

Ditch the ruching round the ankles and look at 7/8th or capri’s for proportion flattering leggings. Look to brands such as NUX or Arcadia Movement. We love their Viper 7/8 or Alana leggings.

Check out cool LA brand, Body Language, whose leggings come in XXS sizes, we love their Claudia Legging. Our Australian brand All Fenix comes with XS bras and crops which are very petite.


Showcase long, lean pins with the longer length Dream Spin Legging and Sculpt Me Legging by Ilu.

Also, good for length are All Fenix, with suitably pin-worthy floral prints or try the Blaze legging from cool Aussie brand, Arcadia Movement. The side stripe detail will make those legs go on and on and on…

With plenty of height on your side, you can ace the layering game, with soft, drapey jumpers from Hard Tail and sporty gilets from Huntrlnd.


 Our go-to picks to provide coverage and support for ample assets include Climawear’s Make the Cut Bra. With three layers of super-stretchy seamless fabric, racer-back, supportive wide straps and full coverage, it is so comfortable you’ll want to wear it all day. 

Shape also knows how to handle things and their Ensemble Sports Bra with adjustable straps and stunning back detail will ensure assets are well covered whatever the activity.



Enjoy the strap benefits that comes with smaller assets up top and wear some of the prettiest bra crops out there. We love Acadia Movement’s Zodie Bra with padding and mesh details round the front, and wow-factor straps at the back! Another great option is the Body Language Stella Reversible Bra, two for the price of one.


Make the most of the small waist perks and opt for vest tops that can knot at the waist, like the Strut This Cruz Tank, or long line crops such as the Liberty Long Sleeved Crop from Climawear.  Go for high-waisted or Gibson Girl on form leggings to showcase your curves at the waist, such as Body Language Sculpt Leggings.

Try a subtle pattern, they can be surprisingly more flattering than a block colour over legs and hips. We heart Nux’s V-Crop in black and grey for off-duty days. For the gym we’d pull on Born Nouli’s Noir Crackle leggings, Climawear’s Revolution Legging or All Fenix ivory black legging.

Don’t be shy when it comes to brights, they can look fantastic as Climawear's raise the bar leggings demonstrate. The seamless technology means there’s no digging in, guaranteed!



Bring on the patterns to showcase your legs – Noli’s Bird leggings do just the job or go for Arcadia Movement's Blaze legging.

High waisted, seamless is your fit and flatter champion. Try Climawear’s Revolution legging or Raise the Bar Leggings.

If you prefer a compression fabric (and the…ahem… sculpting benefits) Born Nouli is the best there is. For down-days, nothing beats NUX's  super-soft fabrics and comfortable fit.

The holy grail is a top that flatters and skims, without hugging or floating loose. Our picks are the sweat-wicking Soma High Performance Tank from NUX, Shape’s Sierra Muscle Tank, The Hazel Vest by NUX in MicroModal cotton, doubles for working out or playing out. Shape’s long sleeve Brook Tee, in lightweight, high-performance material is body skimming, not clingy.

Finding your fit can literally be life-changing as one happy customer recently shared with us…

‘I wanted to let you know I felt really sassy in the gym over the weekend wearing my leggings. They are so comfy you don’t notice they’re on! It so helps when you work out in amazing gym clothes. I did a workout in the weight section, which I never do!’
